Shophemi.Com & Pedders Suspensions Road Course Challenge - Round 2

Hey guys,

While I m new here, I wanted to let you all know about an event that I am helping to put together in the Mid Atlantic area for car geeks.

This is geared a bit towards the LX ( 300, Charger and Magnum ) and the LC ( Challys ) but we are inviting people from several different forums to take part.

Last year we had M3's M5's GT3's, 911's, 911 Turbos, 944 w/ LS1, G8's GTO's R32's S2000's Nissan GT-R, Mustangs and of course Magnums, Chargers and 300's oh my !

Well kiddies as Dan and I have posted in a few different areas we have started work on the 2nd event at New Jersey Motorsprts Park on Thunderbolt.

Pedder USA and Shophemi.com/Arrington Engines have once again stepped up to the plate to support this event.

We had a great time last year, had a great group of people on track and everything I have heard back about the instructors has been outstanding.

So what are we going to change from last year ? Not a whole lot :mrgreen:

We will be running a Meet & Greet AT NJMP on Sunday March 28th 2010 there maybe a AutoX set up, we are still working on all the details on this. This will most likely be held over at the Lighting Course parking lot where Pedder USA did the skid pad testing.

This will allow people who can't make the race to see this awesome facility, M&G and maybe play a little with their cars on the AutoX. Also we are hoping the the supporting vendors will set up booths, have product to show off and let you all fondle and maybe some ride along's in preped cars.

After this we will wander over to the lodge for some general BS'ing and bench racing.

On Monday March 29th 2010 we will be out on the Tunderbolt Course !





Thunderbolt Raceway featuring over 2.25 miles of asphalt, 14 challenging turns, a one half mile straightway and approximately 40 acres of full service paddock space.

We will also be contracting Hook on Driving for instructors again this year. The Goal is to have close to 20 instructors, a class room segment and the Track Marshal.

We will be limiting it to about 60 cars again, 3 run groups about 5 session per group.

We will again be looking to supply a hot lunch and some breakfast goodies.

Door prized etc to be determined.

Group Buys are being working on already and I am chasing down leads on tires, wheels, brakes, and other assorted goodies.

I have this post across several different car forums again, so expect to see GTO's G8's New Camaros and a slew of the Japanese & Euro cars we had last time ( M3's, M5's 911 Turbos, GT3's , S2000, GR-R, Subies etc).

Cost : It always comes down to this Everything we get from sponsors goes to making this event less costly for YOU, Our Goal is to keep it UNDER $275, this event's cost is a bit higher than last years ( more track workers, more instructors & Class room segments ). So the more help we get the lower the price will be across the board. It also falls to how many people we get signed up, If we fill out the 60 cars we will be golden, if we only have 45 cars well.... there will be lots of space to work on your lines and not get run over LOL

We treat our sponsors good they treat us good !

Now for the Email list stuff :

If you want to be kept up to date on what is going on with this track day PLEASE PM me the following

Full Name :

PS -as a note this is done by car geeks for car geeks, we make no money on this, everything we get from vendor support goes into making the event cost less.

There are days I feel like no one loves me. I have to sponsor an event just so they let me in.

The people that came last year had a fantastic time. This will will be better, because we have all been to the track and know a bit more of what to expect. The facilities are second to none. The track is exceptionally well maintained. The instructors were excellent.

That is all good. The best part was the little pizza dinner we had at the end of the event. Rob and a handle of others joined us at a local pizza joint. It was a wonderful evening and I found some one that likes me. They bought my dinner!

The track and driving will be great, but it is the people that make the event. I really look forward to working with these guys again. They did a great job and will again.
