The folks at GingerMan Raceway have opened the new track extension and will host an open track weekend July 3 and 4.
The Windy City BMW chapter held a driver's school at GingerMan last weekend and the consensus among both instructors and students was that the track flows much better through the new Turn 10a, and the longer back straight and faster Turn 11 make a fun track better. GingerMan added new curbing and runoff area work continues.
Here's the info about the Open Track weekend from their website:
