    Grand Am Race New Jersey

    Hi guys just wondering if anyone was planning on heading up to New Jersey to watch some Grand Am racing the week of July 17 - 18.

    If you're only going to go for one day, I would recommend Saturday so you can see the Continental Tire Challenge Qualifying and race (3:15pm). Watch the Mid-Ohio CTC race this Saturday at 1pm on Speed and you'll see why this series is special for BMW enthusiasts. Rolex Grand-Am qualifying and other support races will also happen on Saturday.

    I wish our autocross at Waldorf wasn't the same day.

    I'm still debating skipping the autocross. Even if I did the first half of the morning session, I'm still not sure I could make it to NJMP in time for the Continental Tire race.

    BMW Power is doing pretty well in the Rolex series this year too.

    Looks like NJ Chapter is hosting a corral.

    I think you can get there before the 3:15 race, but so much of the experience is hanging around the paddock before and after practice/qualifying sessions, talking to the participants, etc.

    Agreed, we had an autocross last year that made me miss the Koni race/Saturday festivities last year.

    I'll definitely be there Sunday nonetheless. If anyone wants to go, I can carpool.

    It looks like the BMW Corral is a good deal whether going for Saturday, Sunday or the weekend. The inclusion of infield parking is especially nice.

    Correction: a new schedule shows the Continental Tire Challenge race starting at 2:45, not 3:15.
