You Can Hit The Road: SCCA Announces Track Night In America Program At Thompson Speedway

(Press Release from Sports Car Club Of America)

Track Night In America LogoRoad racing circuits have long been mysterious facilities inhabited by thundering machines and elite beings in helmets. The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) is looking to remove that air of exclusivity in 2015 with the new SCCA Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack, which has scheduled multiple events near the Massachusetts/Connecticut/Rhode Island border during spring and summer at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

SCCA Track Night in America is the fastest way for nearly anyone to get on a racing circuit. Participants only need be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license, have access to a helmet and street car in good working condition, and possess a willingness to have some weekday driving fun.

No previous on-track experience is required. Entrants are divided into Novice, Intermediate or Advanced groups so on-track time remains fun for all, and no race cars are permitted! The cost is only $150 per entrant and grants three 20-minute sessions on track, as well as access to SCCA driving instructors. Admission is free for those wishing to hang out and enjoy the festivities or display cherished rides, and a leisurely track parade lap is offered during events for all guests.

The 2015 schedule for Track Night: Boston at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, 205 E. Thompson Rd. in Thompson, Connecticut is as follows:

-May 6 (Weds.) 3pm-9pm
-June 30 (Tues.) 3pm-9pm
-July 9 (Thurs.) 3pm-9pm
-August 6 (Thurs.) 3pm-9pm

Heyward Wagner, SCCA Director of Experiential Programs, said: “Traditional road courses have always been a bit of a secret society. But SCCA Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack removes the mystery, eliminates hurdles and opens the doors so everyone can come play. Whether you’re a driver, friend or just hanging out, there is an experience for everyone at Track Night: Boston.”

SCCA Track Night in America Driven by Tire Rack is supported by the FIA Sport Grant Programme and Grassroots Motorsports. Each Track Night participant will receive a complimentary six-month subscription to Grassroots Motorsports magazine.
