Weather Warrior Track Day ProgramThe Ridge Motorsports Park will be conducting all winter long a weather warrior program. What does that mean you say? Simply this. The track lies fallow, and quiet, in the winter months. It does no one any useful service just sitting. However, we know, understand, and embrace the fact that we are here to provide a quality experience, so here is what the weather warrior program is all about.
The PNW experiences rain (surprise!) for extended periods, as we all know. However, it is common for us to get a stretch of good weather as well. This is where the weather warrior comes in. We are creating a list of warriors, who have the flexibility to react on a 5 day weather notice. Put differently, when it looks like sun on the horizon, you will get a shotgun blast email, and you will need to respond immediately if you have interest in attending.
The rates will be reduced for participation, and moreover, they will be refunded if we get rained out. We have no intention of making you pay, then having to slog through rain all day. We want you to have fun.
Now then, this program, by its very nature, is only open to intermediate and advanced drivers/riders. The reason for this is not exclusive of novices, not at all. It is more of an efficiency decision. We need participants that require little supervision. We know the participation numbers will likely be small, so we will not be able to allocate man power to a school program.
Our first weather warrior program is on November 3rd, and is actually a Karting day, and potentially a Motorcycle day (Karts on track, then Bikes, then Karts, and so on).
Black Friday, November 23rd, is our second weather warrior day. Again, this is weather dependent, and most events will not be scheduled like the two mentioned here.
Black Friday will be mixed use, motorcycles and cars. Limited entries available. We at The Ridge want to foster a mutually beneficial motorsports community, and we feel it is very important that each user discipline see what the other disciplines see. And discuss it, together. Car guys can give motorcycle guys ride alongs, and Motorcycle guys can do two ups for those car guys brave enough to do it (bring extra leathers and gloves/boots if you can do two ups, car guys will not have that gear). I have had the pleasure of doing a two up with Jason Pridmore, AMA superbike champion, and shortly thereafter, found myself on a motorcycle, riding The Ridge. So, you just never know.
GASS (Great American Stockcar Series) is coming with 5 stock cars, providing ride-alongs to the general public for a fee. Again, weather dependent.
So hit our “info@" email if you have an interest, Black Friday is just about 70% full, so act quickly if you are able. While everyone else shops, we have fun.
