Location: Grattan Raceway, Belding MI
Event Dates: 07/26/19 - 07/28/19
Description: The Maumee Valley Region PCA is hosting a 3 day Drivers Education at the famous Grattan Raceway! We like to keep our DE's small so there is more open track time, so be sure to sign up quick! Grattan is a fun and challenging track with a beautiful woods surrounding. The picturesque road course is two miles long with several unique and challenging corners. It is considered to be one of the finest courses in America. Some of its features include a 3,200 foot straightaway, a 160 degree hairpin turn and a downhill reverse camber turn. If you can master Grattan, you can drive anywhere.
Saturday and Sunday will be an Instructed DE open to drivers of ALL skill levels. Novice and Intermediate drivers will be provided an instructor to help learn the track, your car, and driving skills.
Friday will be a lapping day for Instructors and Advanced drivers to put in as many laps as your tires can handle. Again, this lapping day is only for advanced, solo drivers.
NOTE: If you are not sure you meet this criteria, please contact the MVR CDI Craig Zenil before you register.
INCLUDED with your registration is one entry to the Saturday Night BBQ Dinner where you can meet other car enthusiasts and talk about your time on the track. There will also be many great raffle items to win! EXTRA dinners for guests can be added as an option in registration.
We will be having LADIES ONLY run group on Friday. This is for novice ladies to get a taste of what a DE is. This will include classroom time and a few sessions on the track with an instructor.
Grattan offers 10 single car garages with electricity. Also, you get the space in front of the garage on the concrete to park your truck and trailer if needed. Garages are now handled by Sam at Grattan Raceway. Sam can be reached at (616)691-7221.
Be sure to tell your friends, the event registration will be kept small so there is plenty of open track time to learn and enjoy your car!...so sign up quick.
Because of our SMALL run groups and large “wait list” last year, we ask that you pay for your registration at check-out in order to be "confirmed". Once paid, you will receive a “confirmation” email, which means that your spot is reserved. Contact Tony Calabrese if you are having trouble processing your payment.
Hotel Info: We have a limited amount of rooms reserved at the AmericInn Greenville Hotel & Suites. When reserving a room, be sure to say you are with the MVR-PCA
