Spectator tickets just $12 in advance for first spectator race of NJMP season on April 27th
MILLVILLE, N.J. – New Jersey Motorsports Park is preparing to host its fourth annual 12-hour endurance race on Saturday, April 27th, 2013.
“The Devil in the Dark” returns to the 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway, featuring dozens of different classes of sportscars from the South Jersey Region of the SCCA, is set to begin at noon on Saturday, ending with the checkered flag ending 720 minutes later at midnight.
In previous years’ races, drivers have completed over 400 laps good for nearly 950 miles around NJMP’s premiere road course.
SCCA endurance racing has a long history and can trace its spiritual roots back to the legendary classics such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and the 12 Hours of Sebring.
The club’s South Jersey region conducted 4-hour races in the late 1950’s through the 60’s at the Vineland Speedway, which was located a short distance from New Jersey Motorsports Park.
Participating cars will be divided into classes according to their power-to-weight ratios, giving them the ability to compete against each other on a level playing field for a “class victory”, while all being eligible for the overall race win.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online at www.njmp.com for just $12, and will be available at the gate. Gate prices are subject to be higher on the event date.
