About this event
Welcome to ZCON 2022 Birmingham, Alabama Motorsports Events!
Get ready for an amazing three days of driving events that will allow you to learn to pilot your Z on a world class race track, autocross course, scaled HPDE track and drift course. You will undoubtedly advance your skills and get a feel of what it was like in the glory days of Datsun/Nissan racing!
Day 1, Tuesday 7.26.22, is a High Speed Driving Event at Barber Motorsports Park. The track is 2.38 miles long with 17 challenging turns and approximately 25 minutes from the host hotel in Birmingham. HPDE, or High-Performance Driver Education, is an opportunity to work with experienced drivers and learn (safely) to drive on a race track. The day includes a variety of experience-level run-groups (Beginner through Advanced) with emphasis on safety.
Day 2, Thursday 7.28.22, is an exciting day of Autocross at The Proving Grounds (BMP) or a day of drifting at Mid-Pond Drift Park. You can participate in either (but not both) of the two motorsports events.
Day 3, Friday 7.29.22, smaller than Barber Motorsports Park, but just as exciting, is a scaled HPDE at Talladega Gran Prix Raceway (Little Tally). The raceway is approximately 60 minutes from the host hotel. This 1.33 mile, 10 turn road course will thrill and test you from start to finish.
