(KENT, WA) A new road race designed with spectators in mind will take place at Pacific Raceways on October 8-10. The 1st Annual Pacific Raceways Invitational Presented by Michael’s Automotive Group will feature entries from road racing series up and down the west coast.
The Invitational was created to give racers from all sanctioning groups such as SCCA, Conference, SOVREN, Lucky Dog Racing League and other out-of-area associations a chance to compete together at one classic event. The race gives a nod to the golden age of road racing in the 1960-70s and is likely to become a featured event on Pacific Raceways – The Place to Race – annual schedule.
“We built the event with a nod to some of the big sports car races at Pacific Raceways in the past like the Northwest Grand Prix, United States Road Racing Championship races and Trans Am while soliciting input from race groups that race at the facility throughout the year,” said John Ramsey, track general manager. “We expect to give fans an exciting event with cars from vintage to full production race cars as well as open wheeled formula cars.”
Spectators will have access to unparalleled views of the track from infield vantage points that overlook Pacific Raceways’ iconic Turn 3A/3B and Turns 5A/5B/6. The variety of racecars and unique vantage points will not be the only benefits for spectators. The event weekend will feature car shows on Saturday and Sunday, charity rides on the 2.25-mile circuit and a spectator-friendly Karting race at PGP Motorsports Park on Friday afternoon.
Tickets are only $15 for adults on Saturday and $10 on Sunday. A two-day Super Pass for spectators is only $20. Friday’s test and tune day is free for spectators. Tickets for children under 12 and active duty military are free. Spectator gates each day at 8am with on-track action from 9am to 5pm.
