The M1 Concourse is the playground for the Detroit automotive community. While the track is new it is already receiving acclaim as an exciting place to drive.

Enjoy an exhilarating 1.5 mile state-of- the-art road course. The Champion Motor Speedway is the central feature of M1 Concourse and was professionally designed to accommodate a wide variety of vehicles and driving experiences, including high speed lapping and skills training.

The GingerMan is located in the appealing lakeshore town of South Haven, Michigan. From the beautiful beaches along Lake Michigan and the eclectic eateries, to the award-winning wineries, quaint boutiques and the natural scenic surroundings - there's just something special about this place. Rather than spending your trip to the track in isolation, visitors are just six miles away from the beach, featuring boutiques, events, and dining that are common to any beachside community.

Shift into gear on a track that simulates a country road, but in a controlled environment without the risks of pedestrians and oncoming traffic. Built in 1995, the track opened for its first full season of racing sports cars and motorcycles in 1996. The original track is 1.88 miles long. Corner 10 was extended in 2010 to add dynamic elevation changes on a naturally rolling landscape. This extended the length of the back-straight to more than 1,700 feet. Take advantage of the full spectrum of driving situations: high speed straights and short sprints, long sweeping corners and tight apexes, heavy and light braking, and elevation change. And yet, the GingerMan Raceway is considered to be among the safest road courses in the nation.

Each year the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum Driving Experience explores great tracks and new opportunities; participants from prior years cannot say enough great things about the experience. Prepare for a full day of driving on the track Saturday and Sunday. This is a fundraiser where 100% of the net profit goes towards the Educational Programs of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. A racing tradition was bred through the classic cars and history displayed at the Museum, and its mission continues with support from the Driving Experience.

A deposit to hold your position and secure your hotel accommodations is due when you commit in the amount of $500 for one weekend and $1,000 for two weekends. The remaining balance will be due ten days prior to the event. No reason to wait until the last minute, hotel accommodations are limited and attendance numbers must be supplied to the venue.
