Event announcement:

Palmer-1 registration is now open- new curbing included!

Registration for our first event of 2016 at Palmer Motorsports Park is now open.  The event will be on Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th. Our visits to Palmer last year were two of the most attended events of the year!.  As you may recall there was no curbing installed last year.  In the off season some legit curbing has been installed in key areas.  An example is pictured below.  This should make for far more rewarding laps and less rocks on the track!

The event cost & other information can be found at the registration link: Palmer-1 Registration Page

NOTE: Garages are now available for renting directly from the track here: Palmer Garage Rental
