The event is free for spectators, and it's encouraged to come watch! Hop on over after work and check it out and stay for as little or as long as you like! Children are welcome and usually have a blast, just remember to bring earplugs for them as it can get a bit loud with the sweet sweet sounds of engines and tires. There is even an open time for anyone to drive the track at slow speeds to see the track layout around ~6PM. If you miss the event, I am sure some of us will be uploading videos later to YouTube. My video content will be added to this page after the event is complete.

Ridge-Motorsports-Park

Each lap of The Ridge Motorsports Park road circuit thrills with high speed straights and sweeper turns, huge compressions and blind weightless crests, challenging esses, a long carousel turn where you walk the tightrope between speed and grip, a double apex turn leading to another valley and cresting turn leading into a heavy braking zone, a short sprint between tight turns and finally a breathtaking plunge down the ridge into a technically difficult sequence of turns, before going hammer down on the front straight again! All of this in a park-like forest setting, with stunning territorial and mountain views.
