Grip 618 “Drift & Grill” Skid-Pad Festival & Cars @ Summit Point (Potomac)

“Drift & Grill” Skid-pad-side Festival & Cars Meet

June 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm


This Father’s Day come slide sideways with Grip! This is a Skid Pad, Drifting & BBQ. This event is more “Fun” than “Technical”. Bring the family out and come show off your ride while you lose some Grip with us.

Test the limits of your car’s “GRIP” on a sealed and sprinkled skid pad. Spinning out is half the fun in this controlled and safe environment.

Families/guests will be permitted to ride along for this fun and thrilling event.
No Helmets Required

“Grip 618 Skid Pad & BBQ” will give you the adrenaline rush you crave, without losing focus on every driver’s safety.

Alongside the skid-Pad, is a massive parking lot where we’ll be hanging out, music playing, BBQing, admiring other cars, and watching all participants drift from the overlook area.

NOTE: This is one of the few events we host that convertibles can attend.
This is a family friendly event so bring the entire crew. Spots will be limited for this event.
