Friday at Buttonwillow Raceway August 11th

This event is August 11th, 2006

Price: $160 ( + $30 instructor fee required for first-timers)

Duration: 1 days, 2+ hours of track time per group!**

Track: Buttonwillow Raceway (near Bakersfield)

Registration: https://speedventures.com/event_forms.asp

Timing: Transponders are available for rental.

Event Info:

At 3 miles, Buttonwillow is the longest and most technical track in the Los Angeles area. With twenty-three turns, three elevation changes, the banked "Riverside" sweeper, and a perfect drift over "Lost Hill" (AKA "Magic Mountain"), Buttonwillow offers both a unique learning environment, and a challenge to advanced drivers.

Track config is TBD, but will be a long config using both loops of the track. This track is suitable for street cars, though we suggest that the Riverside turn should be approached at conservative speeds of 70-80 mph in cars without race rollover protection. The remainder of the turns on this track are moderate-speed (35 - 70mph). Most turns have wide runoff areas, clear of major obstacles. This is a great deal at an excellent track.

Our typical schedule is three run groups, with five sessions per group, 25-30 minutes per session, though we do occasionally go to a four run group schedule when conditions require it.

A sample schedule is here for your information, though schedules do change based upon attendance.

*Novices in this case are those who have not driven on a track before.
