Track Night 2017: Seattle Southwest - May 17
Development of the 170 acre site began in earnest in 2009. Asphalt for the road course was laid in November 2011. 2012 was the first full season of operations, with a fully booked calendar of events including car club lapping days, driver training schools and sanctioned auto and motorcycle races along with other bookings. The road circuit was penned by Steve Crawford, designer of Thunderhill Raceway Park and is 40 feet wide, 2.47 miles in length, with 16 turns, and has over 300 feet of elevation gain and loss per lap, including the 50 foot plunge down the Ridge Complex. Each lap of The Ridge Motorsports Park road circuit thrills with high speed straights and sweeper turns, huge compressions and blind weightless crests, challenging esses, a long carousel turn where you walk the tightrope between speed and grip, a double apex turn leading to another valley and cresting turn leading into a heavy braking zone, a short sprint between tight turns and finally a breathtaking plunge down the ridge into a technically difficult sequence of turns, before going hammer down on the front straight again! All of this in a park-like forest setting, with stunning territorial and mountain views.
Advanced, Intermediate and Novice groups: $150
Track Tour Laps and coming out to watch: $0
