I thought I would pass along this information concerning an open track event at Carolina Motorsports Park. I have uploaded a copy of the registration form to my site: Registration Form
CobraEarl's FFR Accessories and Whitby Motorcars, Inc. invite you to
attend an open track event at Carolina Motor Sports Park, Kershaw, SC.
We hope to have many cobras of many brands in attendance. There may be
some mustangs, Corvettes and Z-cars there also.
The registration form is a PDF file. If you cannot open the document,
you can either download Acrobat document reader from the Internet or
you can email me and I will send you a word version of the document.
Or send me your address and I will mail you one.
When we receive your registration form we will send you a package of
further information including event rules, track rules, a tech
inspection form and local motel information.
The event will have a very similar format to a lot of Open Track
events I've seen, in that we will probably have 3 classes depending on
Driver experience and HP of the Cobra. Plus we will have a ladies
class. Ladies can run with the guys.
Each class will probably run for about 20 minutes then the next class
will run for about 20 minutes. This rotation will go on all day long.
The track is 2.25 miles and 14 turns... 35 foot of elevation change.
We will have the whole track for two days. If you have never been to
one of these, it will be worth your time.

Please note that this is not a racing event. There will be no keeping
of times (officially). If your wife wanted to time you, no one could
keep her from it.
There will be a tech inspection. Drivers will be required to have up
to date SNELL RATED helmets. Cotton long sleeve shirts and long legged
cotton pants will be required while on the track. Class A (Advanced)
participants are encouraged to wear drivers suits.
We are looking for Volunteers to help make this event a success.
Drivers may be required to take at least one turn as a corner worker.
We will have camping available both nights. (Friday and Saturday)
Volunteers can camp for free. CMSP has electric hookups and a bath
house with Showers
Saturday Night, we will have a volunteer appreciation bbq.
CAR STORAGE OVERNITE: We will have a guard hired so we can leave our
cars there over nite.
SPECTATORS: This is not a spectator event, that is, Spectators cannot
pay to come in. However, You can have a large pit crew. Pit crew
members may get asked to become active volunteers, also.
Anyone that wants to come as a volunteer, let me know and I will get
ALCOHOL is allowed... Not for drivers of course... The management of
CMSP prefers that it not be around during the day... but if you
non-drivers want a beer be very discrete. The track manager said
there has never been a problem there with alcohol and we absolutely
will not be the first
KERSHAW is DIRECTLY SOUTH of Charlotte, about 60 miles. Took me
exactly one hour to get back to Charlotte straight up hwy 521... But I
may have violated some speed limits a little.
Many Factory Five Racing Roadsters have already said they will attend,
as they have had first notice, so registration is open to all brands
of Cobras on a first come basis.
We hope you will come, have fun, and support this event. We look
forward to hosting two of these events each year. Hopefully one each
year can be held at VIR.
