Registration Open for Lotus Club May 16th Thunderhill West Track Day

Come join the Golden Gate Lotus Club for an open track event at Thunderhill Raceway Park on Thursday, May 16, 2019. We will be running the 2-mile Thunderhill West track in the standard counter-clockwise direction.  All types of cars are welcome at our events.


Price is $165 for members and $185 for non-members.  You can become a GGLC member for $25 when you register and take the member discount immediately. If you are a Lotus owner registered for the West Coast Lotus Meet, you can take an additional $15 discount when you register.  

Lunch will be provided from the Thunderhill Grill for all registered drivers. 

This event will be divided into 3 run groups running every 20 minutes. You will sign up for Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced, depending on your skill level and your experience. Advanced Group is for experienced drivers with 15+ track days/racing experience or equivalent. Intermediate Group is for drivers with a minimum of 7 track days experience, and Novice Group will be for drivers with at least 1 track day of prior experience.  Sign-up for whichever group is appropriate for your experience level. If you sign up for a particular group and decide at the track that you are not comfortable, then ask a GGLC official to switch groups.  We can usually accommodate this.  Open wheeled cars will be allowed only in the Advanced Group.

We have a limited number of openings for Beginner drivers (zero days experience) who will receive 1-on-1 coaching from an experienced driver. Beginner drivers will run in the Novice Group.

Be aware that Thunderhill has a sound limit of 104dB and that limit will be enforced.  

Because the West Coast Lotus Meet is being held in conjunction with this open track event, run groups could fill up quickly, so sign up early to ensure you get a spot.

Within a few days of registering, you will receive a confirmation email with some event details.  Read this email.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, check your SPAM folder.

See you at the track.
