The Golden Gate Lotus Club is pleased to announce another full season of Lotus Open Track Days in 2021! There are 3 GGLC Tracks Days
are on the 2021 calendar and there's more to come! Join the fun!
GGLC Track Days are designed to allow the Lotus and sports car enthusiast enjoy driving in controlled conditions without random
traffic and law enforcement. GGLC Open Track Days are not races, but allow the driver to run at their pace and enjoy the
capability of the car.
At a typical GGLC Track Day event drivers will have too much track time, liberal passing rules in the slower group,
and unlimited (safe) passing in the faster group.
The basic rules at GGLC Track Days are:
- Drive within your skill and comfort level.
- Pass only in designated passing zones. Be courteous and responsible!
- Drivers are responsible for insuring that their car is safe. Learn about preparing your car: CAR PREP
- Helmets are required on track and must be Snell SA2010 or SA2015 (see below).
- Driving suits are not required, but wear cotton clothing that fully covers your arms and legs.
- Have FUN!
Each of our events has a limited number of spots available for first time track drivers. These spots typically
sell-out very quickly. Beginner drivers will be required to take one of our designated coaches as a passenger
until they are approved to drive solo. A friend or professional instructor may also serve as your coach, but
this must be approved with us beforehand. Emailevents-at-gglotus.org
HELMETS & ON-TRACK APPAREL
Helmets: Drivers and passengers are required to wear a helmet that meets or exceeds a Snell rating of SA2010 or newer. Motorcycle and bicycle
helmets do not meet Snell SA requirements for on-track use.
Apparel: Drivers and passengers should wear full length pants and shirts on track, preferrably made of cotton fabric. Closed toe shoes are required,
no sandals or flip-flops.
TRACK DAMAGE & CLEAN-UP
The Golden Gate Lotus Club may ask the driver that has a mechanical failure or damages to track property (on or off track) that results in additional costs charged to
the GGLC by the track, to either pay the track directly for the costs or reimburse the GGLC.
The GGLC recognizes that unfortunate things happen at the track that are outside of the driver's control. As a result, in the event that the track applies any additional
charges to us for any clean-up, damage to track property, etc., we will now consider whether to pass on these additional costs to the responsible driver on a case-by-case
The GGLC prices our events with the intent to break-even and any additional costs we incur come straight out of club funds which ultimately has a bearing on our ability
to host these events.
"Thanks for the incredible day, you guys know how to do it right!" BM
