On June 4th and 5th, 2016, Apex Track Events and the MBCA Virginia Section will host Summerfest 2016, a 2-day High Speed Driving Event on North Carolina’s Center for Automotive Research’s road course.

This road course is ideally situated in Garysburg, NC, so it is an ideal location for people from Raleigh, Richmond, and Hampton Roads to attend. The track is a 40 feet wide bi-directional freshly paved road course with a ½ mile straightaway, 11 constant radius turns and large grassy run-off areas.

There is no competition for times or trophies but a lot of fun to be had. Virtually any car is fully capable of handling this type of event. You will be able to download a technical inspection form that your personal mechanic will perform before you leave home. All you need to bring is this and a Snell SA2010 or later helmet.

DISTANCE to NCCAR: I-95 Exit 176 (NC)
85 miles from Richmond
90 miles from Raleigh
99 miles from Virginia Beach
130 miles from Fayetteville
185 miles from Fairfax
231 miles from Baltimore
234 mile from Myrtle Beach
235 miles from Charlotte

Driving Directions:

From Interstate 95, take Exit 176 turning east onto NC-46. Continue eastbound 0.4 miles to SR-1604 (Lowes Boulevard). Turn left onto Lowes Boulevard, drive for about one mile and take the first road on your left - Technology Drive. The entrance to NCCAR is half a mile ahead. Proceed through the gate and to the entry kiosk building.

All you need to run this HPDE event is your car (in good condition) and a SA2010 or newer helmet. (A limited amount of loaner helmets will be available at a first come, first served basis.)

In a convertible, you will also need to have a roll bar. This roll bar must be strong enough to withstand the forces of compression involved in supporting the full weight of the car. A factory roll bar such as those found on a Honda S2000 and Porsche Boxster may fulfill this requirement, but “style bars” or “show bars” found on some other cars like Saleen Mustangs would not work.

We will have an at track safety inspection Friday night, Saturday morning and Sunday morning. We have negotiated a great rate of $89/night at Hilton Garden Inn in Roanoke Rapids, NC which is convenient to the track. There will be a full day of track time and classroom instruction with 4-5 sessions.

We have a block of rooms reserved at the discounted rate of $89 per night. Just call and mention the codeword "Apex Events."

Spectators are allowed free of charge but they just have to sign a waiver at the front gate.

Overnight camping will be allowed at the track. Contact Sam True at NCCAR to make arrangements. There is also plenty of parking at the hotel for a truck and trailer. We can also tech your car if you bring the car to the hotel Friday night.

Only instructors are allowed to have a passenger while on track.

There will be passing zones on the front straight and back straight for novice and intermediate groups. Advanced and instructor groups can pass, offline, anywhere the wheels are straight. All groups require a point by for each car passing.

This event will fill very quickly, so you will need to place your entry soon as registration is limited. The price for two days at the race track is only $299. This event is open to all makes, models and experience levels.

This is a all day track event at NCCAR that is open to all makes and models. Don't miss out!

Why have a fast car that you can't drive fast?? Bring it out to the track for only $299 for the weekend or $169 for one day!
