      Motor State Challenge registration now open!




      Pro-Touring represents one of the fastest growing facets of the performance automotive hobby and Motor State Distributing, Lane Automotive and Allstar Performance Products are pleased to announce that they will host the Third Annual Motor State Challenge. The event will be held June 17-19 and will once again take place amid the lush orchards and vineyards of Southwestern Michigan, on the shore of beautiful Lake Michigan. Several top manufacturers of Pro-Touring components will also be on hand all three days to answer questions and to showcase their factory test cars. This event is the perfect opportunity to safely test a car’s performance in the autocross, on the road course and to show off what the car can really do. A full schedule of activities is already confirmed so plan to be here all weekend.

      Friday, June 17

      12:00 – 3:00 Motor State Facility Tours, 8300 Lane Drive near Exit 41 at intersection of M-140 and I-94
      3:15 – 3:30 Drivers’ Meeting (Cruise) at Motor State/Lane Automotive
      3:45 – 6:00 Cruise through the wine country and along Lake Michigan Shoreline (Approx. 40-50 Miles)
      6:00 – 10:00 – Beach Party/Cookout Dinner (weather permitting) at Warren Dunes on Lake Michigan near Bridgman, Michigan.

      Saturday, June 18

      8:00 – 5:00 All Day Event at Gingerman Raceway (Road Course) in South Haven, Michigan. BBQ dinner will follow at track. Drivers will be divided into groups, based on experience. Novice drivers will be led by a pace car, and speeds will be kept to a prudent rate. Experienced and Professional drivers will be able to run the course at a faster pace, but will still be expected to keep safety at the forefront. All drivers and passengers will be required to wear a SNELL 2000 (or later) rated helmet. There will be absolutely NO fender to fender racing allowed on the course. Convertibles are welcome to participate in the Motor State Challenge however, if competing for times and qualifying for the OUSCI, you will be required to have a roll bar and proper safety restraint equipment. Convertibles without this equipment will still be allowed to run on the road course and autocross but will be held to a slower speed for safety reasons.
      Sunday, June 19



      8:00 – 4:00 Autocross, Lake Michigan College Parking Lot (Benton Harbor, MI)
      Competition will begin at 8:00 and continue until 4:00. Awards for the event will be handed out at the conclusion of the Autocross event. Motor State's Relay for Life team has offered to do a cookout on Sunday during the autocross. They will grill hamburgers, hot dogs, and provide chips, cookies, and drinks for a donation to the charity.
      Join us for three days filled with good times, good friends and the chance to experience the technological creativity and excitement that defines Pro-Touring. Due to the nature of this event, participation registrations will be limited. In order to secure a spot, please register as soon as possible. All events will run, rain or shine.

      I'm in for the Challenge. It was so much fun last year! I tried to get my room at Surfari Joe's, apparently rooms not blocked out yet? Lots of weddings that weekend? The desk clerk took my name and phone # and said she would have to get back to me.

      I was able to make reservations there on the 14th...... They don't seem real organized, however.

      Jim, it's too early for me to say yet. I have a room reserved but I may already have a crowd - I won't know for a while. If I end up not having a crew with me you're more than welcome, but you're probably better off if you can find an alternative in the meantime.

      Hi Bill, I have a room booked in South Haven that I can stop my reservation
      a week in advance if needed, so if it works out I will take the room since it is so much closer to everythin g going on.

      No problem Jim. We'll stay in touch and figure out the details as things progress. I still have no idea who may be coming with me - or not.
