Good Afternoon Racers,

PSRRA will be hosting the upcoming Gold Cup Road Race #1 of the season at The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, WA May 29-30. We are getting very excited for this event, and there have been many improvements made to the track and facilities since last year! You can find updates on our Facebook Page, or check out their website at www.ridgemotorsportspark.com.

Practice will be Friday, and racing on Saturday. The fine folks at Turn-2-Lapping will be joining us again this year for Friday practice. This worked out really well last year, as we got to see some nice cars, and the Porsche guys were able to check out our amazing karts and fast lap times!

We will be doing the Buddy Drive at the end of racing Saturday, so please encourage your friends and family who may be interested to come out and give it a try! We have had success with hooking people in through this opportunity, with just a 15 minute drive in a kart! Help us grow the sport!

The gates will be open Thursday night until 10PM and reopen again Friday morning at 6:30AM. For those arriving after hours, there will be 24 hour security that will be able to open the gates for late arrivals.

Accommodations are available at the Little Creek Casino. They are offering “racer rates” of $85 for Thursday night, $85 for Friday night, and $101 forSaturday night.  Their website is www.little-creek.com or call 1-800-667-7711 for reservations, and mention you are with the PSRRA race at The Ridge to get the reduced rate.
