Lap Attack Returns to PGP With Round 4 This Sunday

1/7/2011

Rarely in these day of sports over-hype do you get an event with a name that fits perfectly, a name like LAP ATTACK. It almost begs to have an exclamation point on the end, doesn’t it? LAP ATTACK! ... LAP ATTACK!

Lap Attack returns to PGP Motorsports Park with Round 4 of the Fall-Winter Series this Sunday. No previous experience or expensive race cars are needed, either. Just bring your daily driver, or any other street-legal car, and see just how quick you can turn a lap around PGP.

Drivers in four categories, Open, Race Tire, Street Tire and Novice (see below for explanation of classes) will compete to turn the quickest times around PGP’s 14-turn .82-mile asphalt track. Drivers must possess a valid driver’s license.

Competitive sessions during each round will be four laps each, with drivers turning one out-lap to warm their tires before three hot laps. The best lap time for each session will be combined with the lowest overall total in each class winning that round. The top three drivers in each class will be awarded trophies at the end of each round.

Practice starts at 9 a.m. The cost is $60 for members, $80 for non-members, $25 transponder fee and $10 per pit pass. No passengers allowed. Pre-registration for PGP’s Lap Attack Fall-Winter Series is strongly recommended. To register for Lap Attack, and for more information, visit www.pacificgp.com.

The Lap Attack Fall-Winter Series will resume with Round 5 on Feb. 13 and the finale on March 13.

There will be a live broadcast with commentary of Sunday’s event provided by eventbuilder.com and accessible through a link on the PGP website at www.PacificGP.com. The event will also be available for “on demand” viewing after Sunday by following the same link.

Lap Attack — like all racing at PGP — is rain or shine. A substantial amount of time and money was spent during the construction of PGP to mitigate all water issues. More than two miles of drain pipe sits under the specifically formulated asphalt that includes additional polymers and hardeners that increase the traction in the wet. This means you can expect great racing rain or shine year round.
