Traqmate Skidpad Challenge

Apr 26 at Braselton, GA

Grassroots Motorsports Skidpad Challenge

How well does your car grip?

Here's your chance to find out. We’re issuing an open invitation for all car owners to attack our skid pad: any make, any model, any vintage, any modifications. The occasion? Our first-ever Traqmate Skidpad Challenge on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.

What: The inaugural Traqmate Skidpad Challenge. It's a very safe and simple competition: Drive a car around the skidpad as fast as possible while Traqmate equipment logs data from your run. The more lateral g's the car can produce, the higher it ranks in its class.

Have you made suspension upgrades on your car? Here's your chance to witness their effect.

Where: The Turn 7 skidpad at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.

When: Sunday, April 26, during the 2015 Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty. Registration and tech opens at 10:00 a.m. Runs start at noon with trophy presentation at 5:30 p.m.

Signing up is free, all you need is a Sunday ticket for the Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty. To get your tickets, click here.

After claiming your ticket, sign up for the Traqmate Skidpad Challenge by downloading and filling out the entry form and the vehicle information form.
