Atco, NJ

Has anyone taken their SS to the track at Atco yet? I know a few of you posted about taking it to Englishtown. I have yet to see any Maro's at Atco.

The website isn't as confusing as you might think. I was there last night and they usually have test and tunes on tuesday and thursdays. can get crowded sometimes but that's because the track (i believe) is below sea level so when the DA is great everyone tries to get a great time. It's definitely worth taking a trip to atco you'll see some pretty decent cars. If you click on the calender or schedule part of the website just look for test and tune days. It's $10 to watch and $15 to run your car.

This is something to put on my to-do-list
We should select a date date for a GTG and have a few Camaro5 members show up.

That'd be an excellent idea. It'd be great to see some maro's run and get some decent times.

Anytime seems to be good. I'm not sure how soon you'd prefer to make it. Seems like not a whole lot of people have the new maro so if we waited til fall we might get more people out and people could have quicker times.

That is fine by Me.
Lets plan it a few months out.
Need to find out what is a good day for us at the track.
Week day or Week end (could get better turn out on weekend) if we can run.

Link to this years schedule.

Week day or Weekend could be a toss up. It really depends if they have any events going on during the weekends. if it's planned far enough in advance even a week day could have a good turn out

I'm about 30 minutes or so from Atco. It's not a bad hike down rt 206 south. Raceway Park, is that in Old Bridge? I think I'm approximately 30-45 minutes from there but I'm not entirely sure because I've never been there, usually only go to Atco

Sounds excellent! Thanks for looking into that for me! That would be awesome if the show/shine was once a month!

Unfortunately I'm still in the waiting process of getting my camaro but it's well worth it!

typically in the summer, tuesdays and thursdays are the street car nights. Fridays also i believe. the weekends are always test and tune unless theres a big event there. but as always, NJ summers suck as far as humidity, DA, Temp, and times go. the time for atco is really end of october thru march. nice low DA's plust the track only being 33 feet above sea level is a huge plus.

as far as raceway park goes, too expensive. excellent track tho, well maintained/prepped as far as i hear. id rather pay 10 bucks and go atleast .3 faster

I just learned a friend of mine rented the track for a day in October with his car club. I will definetly bring the Camaro there to run a cool October pass below sea level. Hopefully I know how to drive and can muster an under 13 sec pass.

Would love a 12.79 from my 6M.
