    Monday: 8am-5pm CGI track day at Gingerman raceway

    GingerMan Raceway - More than a place to race.
    GingerMan Raceway - Event Calendar 2016
    Cgi Motorsports - High Performance Driving, High Performance Drivers Education, High Performance Driving School

    Gingerman Raceway​

    61414 County Road 388
    South Haven Charter Township, MI

    For those looking to drive their cars fast in a safe and controlled environment with turns, look no further! Here's the registration links for the CGI Motorsports track day at Gingerman Raceway in MI:

    If you have any questions on which group you think you should register for, feel free to shoot me or @MATT DAMOND a PM. We honestly recommend an instructor for anyone who questions whether of not they need one, has not tracked in awhile, or has not been to this track. There are class room sessions for the Novice group, which we recommend on everyone attending, unless you're a seasoned veteran of racing. Don't sign up for the "advance group" to be cool Mr hot shot, they'll knock you down at the track to a lower group.

    The pricing has increased a bit over years past, but is still quite reasonable for the amount of track time when compared to most other venues.

    The cost is $275 for Novice, and $225 for Intermediate and Advance. The extra $50 covers the instructors for Novices (if you've previously been approved for solo track time by CGI as a Novice, the fee may be waived and you may run sans instructor).

    For "Novice Group" Those with little to null tracking experience, or haven't tracked in years, an instructor is required! Register via this link: https://cgimotorsports.configio.com/ShoppingCart.aspx?com=detailview&iid=249&diid=250#Detail

    For "Intermediate Group" Those with plenty of seat time, not necessarily at Gingerman; or a decent amount tracking, and familiar with Gingerman. Register via this link: https://cgimotorsports.configio.com/ShoppingCart.aspx?com=detailview&iid=249&diid=251#Detail

    For "Advance Group" Those with lots of experience tracking, possibly some competitive forms of racing, or a vast knowledge of Gingerman. Register via this link: https://cgimotorsports.configio.com/ShoppingCart.aspx?com=detailview&iid=249&diid=252#Detail

    Woot! Thanks @Nliiitend1 for making a thread! As I mentioned before, if there is interest in a dyno day on Saturday I can set one up. People who dont want to do that can go to Craig's Cruisers. I would need a handful of people to sign up and make it worth it. AWD dyno at Whalen's Speed R&D.

    Just ran this by the wife and she seems game to go so I should be there but only for Friday and Saturday nights leaving Sunday morning. I won't be dynoing or racing just hanging out and drinking beer with Nator homo's.

    Awesome. I'm hoping I'll finally be able to attend this meet. It's only a couple hours away from home for me and I can finally plan for it instead of a last minute dash to see if it can work.

    Thanks for posting this up!

    For the guys wanting to track on Monday, please sign-up ASAP. They're currently holding spots for us, but if we don't sign up soon, they'll open it up for more people.

    Especially if you're gonna need an instructor, so they know how many they'll need for the event.

    Registration links are posted in Nintendo's OP.

    For the weekend of Midwest, there are a total of 30 rooms and I believe, 5 suites, maybe 6.
    To date, 2 reservations have been made.

    Let's take the place over! Start making your reservations!

    Called today and Justin isn't in until tomorrow and the lady didn't know what we were talking about. Just a heads up.

    Was her name Lindsay? If so, I talked to her yesterday around 12.

    When you register all you need to do is mention you are with the NATOR group and what dates you want to stay. They will note your room with "NATOR" and Justin will add it to the list.

    Justin is our contact but you do not need to book your room through him to get our rates.

    Yes, I believe so. She said that a lady had called asking for information, haha.

    She wasn't aware of a group rate which is why we said we'd call back.

    The resort is under new management since we last stayed there, Justin did know who we were but did not say we had any special group rate. We were given the group name so that we would be roomed close together.

    I'll just plan to call the resort again and ask about the rates. I don't want people getting bent about what it is costing to stay there.

    My bad, I should learn to read better apparently. I thought there was a group rate when told to mention our group.

    I guess I'll wait to book then?

    Do as you please.

    From what we can tell from searching on the forums, in 2013 we were given a less than 10% discount but in 2014 there were no rates listed. I'll do what I can but I make no promises.
