      2010 Motor State Challenge registration is now open!



      http://www.motorstatechallenge.com

      Motor State Distributing, Lane Automotive and Allstar Performance Products will once again be hosting the
      “Motor State Challenge” on June 18-20, 2010 in Watervliet, MI.

      This Pro-Touring /G-Machine event mirrors the very popular “Run Thru The Hills” event that will take place later in the year. A full schedule of activities is already confirmed so you won’t want to miss this happening. Situated in the Southwest Corner of the Great Lake State of Michigan, participants and spectators will be surrounded by lush, rolling vineyards and, of course, beautiful Lake Michigan.

      Scheduled events will include facility tours of Motor State Distributing, one of the performance industry’s top warehouse distributors, a cruise through the back roads of Harbor Country and along the winding coast of Lake Michigan, a cookout dinner on Lake Michigan, road racing at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI, and a timed autocross to wrap up the event on Sunday.

      Join us and experience what Pro-Touring is all about. Three days filled with good times, good friends and some of the meanest Pro-Touring/G-Machines in the country. This event is the perfect opportunity to safely test your car’s performance on the autocross as well as on the road course. A great deal of hard work and preparation is involved in building a G-Machine; this is your chance to show off what your car can really do.

      I had a great time last year in my ’72 monte, and I didn’t do any track time or autocross (other that some blistering passenger seat time at Gingerman in Matt’s Camaro).
      This year I’m coming back with my ’71 Chevelle Convertible.
      I’m sure autocrossing isn’t a problem in the convertible; But will I be able to do (novice) laps at Gingerman in my convert?
      I’m ready to sign up, but I need to know what I can sign up for

      Thanks!

      Looking forward to this above all.

      I hope we can still run DOT APPROVED R-compound tires, unlike the rest of the so-called racing events.

      I was hopping it would be open to all R compound tires, Could not run my Hoosiers last year in competition so I destroyed a set of run-flats. I do not want to have to buy a set of tires just for this event but will do what ever the rules say. I am just glad they are putting on such a good event again. Randy

      Crawled out of the bed and got registered for MSC. Still "recovering" from the flu. Should have spent the last two days lapping VIR, but no. Had to catch the flu and miss one of the best driving schools available this spring.

      I'm cool with that, hell I dont car if cars run full blown slicks. The group I run with in my neck of the woods include full blown race cars. I just want to use the competition tires I bought and not have to dumb the car down / make it slower.
