Performance Track Day Adds October Gingerman Event

August 13, 2021 0

After a highly successful event at National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park, Performance Track Day is excited to announce a new addition to the 2021 calendar: Gingerman Raceway, October 3.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Gingerman Raceway is the perfect track for auto enthusiasts to hone their skills and better their craft. Sitting on a 350-acre site, Gingerman Raceway was crafted to come to be one of the safest tracks in North America, simulating the full spectrum of driving situations. With dynamic elevation changes that roll naturally with the landscape, the 11-turn road course offers high-speed straights and sweeping corners, with a tight apex or two to keep you on your toes.

This one-day event held in southwest Michigan will be hosted by father-son duo Johnny and Canaan O’Connell. At our track day event, participants will bring their own car and under the guidance of Johnny and Canaan, will learn all the expert tips to push it to the limits.

Johnny was the most successful American General Motors Factory driver, with three American Le Mans Series championship titles, four Pirelli World Challenge championship titles, and four wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Even with all this success, Johnny thoroughly enjoys working with all levels of drivers to share his knowledge so there’s no one better to be your instructor for a track day in your own car. Johnny’s down-to-earth nature sets the tone for a fun and casual track day experience, allowing everyone to relax, have fun, and learn behind the wheel in the process.

Also a professional race car driver and instructor at the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, Canaan O’Connell will also be an excellent instructor for our upcoming track day, being well versed in providing expert instruction to participants. Together, this father and son duo will provide a track day experience that you don’t want to miss!

At Performance Track Day, it’s our goal to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for all our customers, no matter their background or machinery. Our instructors have a wealth of knowledge to share from their own racing and track day experience and will provide a fun learning environment that will allow you to push your own car to the limits. You’ll learn from some of motorsport’s best in the classroom, then be able to take it out onto the track to see how the rubber meets the road. With each session, the O’Connells will be there every step of the way, coaching and guiding you, to make sure you get the most out of the experience. You might even be able to convince them to drive your car to see what it can really do at the hands of a professional!
