Palmer Motorsports Park

Is anyone planning to attend an event at this new track in MA?

There's a 5/15 event with HOD and a 5/16-17 with Del Val BMWCCA. I was watching some video on YouTube and the track looks very fun (technical and fast). My only hesitation is the lack of curbing / barriers and whether they will be completed in time for the events.

Please respond with thoughts / info on this track and /or if anyone is planning to go to these events.

I am headed there on may 8 with northeast track days. It looks like a fun technical course although very little runout... Looking forward to trying it though!
 
It looks like Precision Track Time is going to be there on 4/10. I think I might do that one. Their events are awesome for intermediate and advanced drivers. Open track all day long with lunch included for $325.

I'll be there with the Audi NEQ club instructing this year, hopefully at least once more at some point just to drive. The runoff on this track will be very interesting, I see a number of spots in watching the videos where you really need to avoid going off or risk being ping-ponged back into traffic. There are MANY blind turns also. Our club has discussed this at length, there will be a lot of focus for beginners and novices about the more dangerous portions of the track.


BE CAREFUL OUT THERE ! ;-)

Two Davids own the company. Really terrific folks.
Here is the contact for David Connelly. [email protected]

Instructing is not an easy task and these two guys really appreciate their instructors (and their clients).

I sent an email to Dave letting him know and pointing him to the thread.

Did I torque down that damn sway bar at all points ?? :)

Tomorrow looks great, one novice student also. I hear there's no gas there. I'm thinking this track is going to drink gas like crazy...

I'm not sure on the gas... yeah, the elevation change, but I don't think there will be a lot of heavy braking and heavy accelerating like Watkins or Thompson. It looks like there will be more "conservation of momentum" sort of like NYST, but who knows. I'm bringing 10 extra gallons :)
