The Ridge Motorsports Park aims to be an important part of the city of Shelton, Mason County and the racing community. With lifelong ties to Mason County, WA, The Ridge Motorsports Group has been committed to reflecting the values that make the area so special. Because of this, a powerful symbiotic relationship exists that will continue to provide tremendous long-term benefits to the community, other local businesses and users of The Ridge Motorsports Park. And Yes, there will be a drag strip. We are hoping to have it ready for use as soon as we can.
"We're committed to building a first class facility that we can all be proud to call a part of our community" - Rod Powell
We also have installed fiber optic communications to our caretakers quarters. We hope to have Wi-Fi throughout the paddock soon. As of now, we have an actual phone at the track! A real phone, that works! Who knows, we may step up and now get an actual mailbox! We don’t mean to really make light of these, they are significant accomplishments. The trench for the fiber was almost a mile long, and the permit for getting the classroom onsite was a task as well.
So, the message is simple. The improvements are coming, and we are working as hard as we can to continue to upgrade the facilities. Stay tuned, but be patient.
This year the road course has more activity than last year. We are gearing up for full days of events and amenities installations. The real trick is getting some sleep in there too. Such a waste of productive time, sleeping is. Yet, we cannot seem to go without it. Go figure.
As always, thank you so much for all of your support, and smiles, it keeps us energized and moving.
Be well, and enjoy today. Really, it’s all you have, so make the most of it.
This event was a Corporate level event, featuring SRT products, and all had a blast!! More to come on this, but suffice it to say, we were proud to host the SRT event. The SRT Track Experience has been held for 7 years and all over the country. We are proud to announce that on their final day at The Ridge, Saturday, April 20, 2013, a very happy lady won the autocross competition for the first time!! That is seven years, and 6,000 drivers mind you, and it happened at The Ridge. More on the event, and the very talented driver, to come.
ProFormance Racing School held its first track event ever at The Ridge on April 22, 2013, and their day was a resounding success. We welcome ProFormance Team to The Ridge, and congratulate them on having such a successful day. Within that first day, another first, the fastest lap time ever recorded at The Ridge occurred. Snake Livernash, piloting a Formula Atlantic, clocked a smoking 1:33.7 second lap! These results are not official, as no official timing gear was used, but by the looks of things, that benchmark is going to be hard to beat! Congrats Snake, well driven, and you are a fine young man, and well mannered to boot. We like that in fast guys, talent, and poise. Look forward to seeing you again at The Ridge, and wish you well in your Run Offs pursuit (SCCA National Run Offs Pursuit).
