Grip 716

July 15 @ 6:00 pm July 16 @ 7:00 pm

EVENT SUMMARY

This is not your “usual” track day experience. We put together a full-service, all-inclusive packaged, private track day for fellow supercar enthusiasts, who share similar “gripes”—too many cars; no food options available; no access to convenient accommodations; lack of on-site service offered; etc.

“Grip 716 Track Day” will give you the adrenaline rush you crave, without losing focus on every driver’s safety. This event was exclusively designed for intermediate- and advanced-level drivers only.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Grip’s Private Track Days are all-inclusive:

  • Reception and registration (evening before)
  • One-night of lodging
  • Hot breakfast, coffee, and lunch buffet (at the track)
  • Snacks, water, and soft drinks (all day)
  • Instructors available throughout the day
  • Open track format (all day)
  • Track-side sponsors perks
  • Indoor bathrooms and showers
  • All-corner flaggers, workers, and EMS
  • VIP pit area for breaks
  • All stickers, decals, and numbers
  • On-site media team (all day)
  • Access to all photos and videos from the event (download on our website)

GUEST POLICY

Non-driving guests must be registered online to attend the event. They can share lodging with the driver-participant, and they will be able to partake in all the same activities, except for track time. Please add your guest registration at the same time as you complete your driver registration.

ABOUT THE FACILITY

NCCAR is only 3 hours from the Metro DC area and only 1 hour south of Richmond, VA

Grip has rented the entire facility, exclusively available to our limited number of attendees. This beautiful 620-acre site houses a two-mile track that has four left corners; seven right corners; and a long straightaway. It was built and designed by Lotus as a testing facility, until it was sold. It is now one of Grip’s favorite technical tracks. For more track details, visit www.nccar.us.
