The GGLC Track Days are not a substitute for high speed driving instruction. For those new to track events
and/or have limited experience driving at high speeds on track the GGLC usually has a limited number of spots. These spots
are with a coach and will help those with limited or no track experience to become aclimated with on-track driving rules and
technique. Contact the GGLC Track Day chairman to reserve one of these spots - email firstname.lastname@example.org
As an alternative GGLC suggests you consider gaining knowledge and track experience at any one of the many instructional track
events or at a driving/racing school such as:
GGLC Track Day - Monday, October 30, 2023 - WeatherTech Raceway at Laguna Seca
Come join the Golden Gate Lotus Club for this open track event at Laguna Seca Raceway on Monday, October 30.
Registration is open!
You do not need to own a Lotus to attend this event.
Entry fee is $360 for members and $380 for non-members.
We will be running (3) run groups with approximately 20 minute sessions each. Your options will be Advanced Group,
Intermediate Group, and Novice Group. There are a very limited number of Beginner slots available. Beginners will run in the Novice
Group and will be required to have a coach assigned to them to ride in the passenger seat in order to enter the track. If we can find
more coaches, we will send out an announcement for additional beginner slots. The groups will be classified as follows:
Beginners (sharing track with the Novice Group)
Very limited Beginner/1st Timer slots in Novice.
You must have a minimum of 1 track day or equivalent previous experience. This group is intended for drivers with less
skill/experience. Passing without a point-by will be allowed on the long straights and some of the short straights. Passing in turns
will be allowed with a point-by.
You must have a minimum of 8 track days previous experience. This group is intended for cars with drivers with some skill/experience.
Passing without a point-by will be allowed on the long straights and some of the short straights. Passing in turns will be allowed with a point-by.
You must have a minimum of 18 track days experience or equivalent. Passing without a point-by will be allowed
everywhere except between Turn 7 and Turn 10 (Corkscrew section).
SOUND RESTRICTION - 92db
Laguna Seca enforces a strict sound limit of 92db. Elise & Exige owners note that most aftermarket exhaust systems may not
meet the 92db level. DO NOT COUNT ON LIFTING AT THE SOUND CHECK!
This event will run rain or shine. There will be no money back cancellations. If you need to cancel before February 22nd and we
can fill your spot, then we will offer you a rain check for a future event.
Sessions will be about 20 minutes long. You can expect to get at least 6 sessions.
Open top cars must have a roll bar. Factory installed roll bars are okay. Open wheeled cars will be allowed in the Advanced Group.
We will not conduct a tech inspection on your car. You are solely responsible for the safety of your car.
There will be no formal instruction offered at this event. You are always encouraged to ask more experienced drivers for help,
advice or ride-a-longs. This is NOT a driving school and it’s up to the individual drivers to request assistance.

will almost certainly sell-out.

GGLC 2023 Track Day - Saturday, December 30, 2023 - Buttonwillow Raceway
Registration is open for the Lotus Club of So California - Golden Gate Lotus Club Buttonwillow Track Day on Saturday, December 30, 2023.
At this event we will run the Track 13 configuration track in the clockwise direction and counter-clockwise in the afternoon!
You do not need to own a Lotus to attend this event. We run our events as close to non-profit as we can and you will not find a better price for
a full day on the track.
LOW car counts per run group. Ever get frustrated that your track time is just spent in traffic? Each of our groups are capped at lower car counts than what other organizations run. Drivers at LCOSC events are sure to be able to find plenty of clear track.
LOW total car count. Not only do we run low car counts per group, we also run only three total run groups! This means that you’ll get an hour of track time in the morning, and over an hour in the afternoon. If you run all the sessions, you'll end up with more than 2.5 hours of driving time for the day, double of what most organizations offer!
SAFE AND FRIENDLY environment. We’re a club that emphasizes track safety. If you’re a beginner looking to just begin tracking, we help provide coaching and an environment you’ll be comfortable with. If you’re a seasoned driver, our low key atmosphere ensures a fun filled day.
Pricing is $250 for members and $270 for nonmembers, if you register before December 9. Pricing changes to $270 for members and $290 for nonmembers on December 10. If you are not a LCOSC or GGLC family member, you can become a LCOSC member for $25 when you sign up and take the member discount immediately.
We will be running Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced run groups. Advanced Group is for experienced drivers with 15+ track days/racing experience or equivalent who are comfortable with open passing conditions (although point-bys are always encouraged). Intermediate Group is for drivers with a minimum of 5 track days experience who are comfortable with point-by passing anywhere on track. Novice Group is open to all drivers and will be point-by passing only on the main straight and other designated zones. Drivers with no track experience should register in Novice and e-mail email@example.com to request a private coach.
We have a low registration limit to ensure the best possible track day experience, so register now! We hope to see you on track!
