JSC Speed to present first-ever ‘Winter Rally’ event at Lightning Raceway; F1 Karting offers one-day special offer
MILLVILLE, N.J. – Potentially raw, cold December conditions will provide the atmosphere for the first-ever “Winter Rally” event set to take place at New Jersey Motorsports Park on Saturday, December 8th.
The final in a series of four races at Lightning Raceway in 2012, the event features Rally-style cars where five drivers line up to start all at once piloting high horsepower compact cars jumping and sliding through race traffic over a challenging short road course.
The course is made up of pavement, gravel, featured jumps, unbanked turns, hills, and transitions. Each participant must also take a “joker” lap, a small detour over a jump that adds a level of unpredictability to each heat, at some point.
Originally scheduled for November, the event was moved due to teams’ requests for more time to repair their cars after the wheel-to-wheel action Round 3 produced in October.
In addition to $10 tickets for Round 4, the park’s F1 Karting facility is offering a special, one-day experience for Rallycross fans. An optional $10 add-on to the basic event ticket will allow the holder to take to one of F1 Karting’s world-class course configurations for a 10 minute session, redeemable only on the race date, December 8th.
Tickets, with or without the $10 karting special, are available by calling (856) 327-8000 or online by logging on to njmp.com/winterrally
“We’re excited to introduce this new concept of cold-weather rallycross racing in New Jersey to our fans,” said NJMP general manager Brad Scott. “With the addition of the optional 10 minutes of karting at F1 for just $10, we feel this will be an exciting year-end event for us.”
Participating drivers and teams can register for Round 4 online at motorsportreg.com.
