That looks like a fun track

It is fun. It is also very safe, for a track, and offers a lot of run-off space in case you mess up. Even though it is relatively safe, it is difficult enough to hold your interest no matter how many times you have driven it before.

We are proud to announce our Midwest pre-tech inspection shops. Please take advantage by having your car checked over before the event. Though we will continue to provide tech inspections at the track, pre-tech'ing your car will ensure you the most track time and also allows time just in case something is wrong. Here are the shops:

Advanced Auto-Motion
3030 N. Lake Terrace (near Pfingsten & Lake)
Gleview, IL 60025
Tel: (847) 724-6400 Contact: Chris or Greg

Evolution Performance
1923 S. Arlington Heights Rd. (just south of Rt 58)
Arlington Heights, IL 60005
Tel: (847) 228-6888 Contact: Jerry

One 6 Motorsports
571 S. Arthur Ave.
Arlington Heights, IL 60005 (2 blocks south of 14)
Tel: (847) 255-1905 Contact: Mark

Performance Autowerks
23848 W. Industrial Drive S.
Plainfield, IL 60544
Tel: (815) 609-4180 Contact: Dave

In addition, we know that many people have their own preferred shop. Please feel free to have your normal mechanic check over your car. All you have to do is download our tech inspection sheet from the website and have the shop put their stamp on it. Bring the inspection sheet with you to the track, and you are ready to go.

Race-on,
Brian.

Are there spots still open for this?

Thank you for your interest. As of today, there are still spots open in all three run groups. However, the beginner group and the intermediate group always fill up the fastest, so register asap! It would be great to see some RSX's there.

Please let me know if you have any other questions,
Brian.

An easy track? I've been out there for probably 30 events in the last 5 years, and I still find it a challenging track, and I like to consider myself at least somewhat of an experienced amateur.
