MBCA (GWS) at NJMP (Lightning) Sep 26 & 27

We're on the Lightning course at the New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ. This is a relatively new course - opened last year, and the site of track events for Tri-O-Rama 2008.

Use this link: GWS Driver Education Event at New Jersey Motorsports Park for registration. The cost is $395 for both days or $235 for one.

We had a blast on this course last year - some challenging turns but a great place to drive, so come out and join us for what promises to be a great HPDE event.

Come join us, you need not be a member to attend.

It was great meeting everybody at the track. It was really a pleasure running around the track with great cars ranging from a 500SEC AMG to a CLK63 Black Series.

usually two events a year, a monday in the spring and a weekend event in the summer. the monday event has been cancelled for next year though, we need more people to start coming out to track events.

Great Track Event

Here is a video

And for some of you, you might recognize the C43 in front of me.

Look for some great shots and a write up in the upcoming GWS-MBCA Metro Tri-Star newsletter.
