I know that it’s currently “Southern Cali month” on Speedhunters, but I just wanted to mention this cool event I heard about on the East Coast!
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could go road racing in your own car, for FREE? You can’t get anything for free these days (except for the cool stories and photos you get from Speedhunters.com). In fact, I heard that even those “free credit reports” online aren’t really free – in order to get them, you have to agree to receive all sorts of spam email based on the info that the credit report website sells to email marketing companies!
So imagine my surprise when I heard that our friends from The Speed Lounge ( www.SpeedLounge.com ) were going to host a FREE track day at one of the East Coast’s favorite stomping grounds, Englishtown in New Jersey.
This free track day came about because the SpeedLounge guys teamed up with the management over at E-town’s Old Bridge Township Raceway Park to promote their new 1.35 mile road course to the East Coast drivers! This new course wasn’t designed as a top speed course, but more of a technical road course, so that amateur-to-intermediate drivers could come out and test the handling of their high performance cars at a safe location! Those New Jersey cops aren’t too friendly, so coming out to E-town to test the limits of your performance vehicles is a good idea. A low-to middle speed technical course like this new one at E-town is perfect and welcoming to normal everyday drivers who aren’t used to driving high speed courses like Watkins Glen.
That’s pretty cool, I wish I was out there to drive the track for free. I saw that a lot of different cars, from Civics to RSXs to S2000s to Eclipses to Skylines to Lancer Evos participated in this event, but for more pics, check out the gallery at SpeedLounge.com!
