Here is your chance to race on a new track in superb weather with a group of people who love cars & racing.

In an effort to make up for the cancelled February 28 Thunderhill event, and to explore the viability of a June event, as requested by a number of people in the recent Member Survey, we have the opportunity to run the new 2 mile West track at Thunderhill the weekend of June 28-29. The track expects that the West track Club House, bathrooms and control tower will be fully operational before then.

The program will consist of at least 40 minutes of practice on Saturday morning; a half-hour Mechanical picnic each day; a 30 minute qualifying race by Run Group Saturday afternoon; a paddock party Saturday night, featuring assorted racing movies to go with the usual finger food; then at least two 30 minute races by Run Group on Sunday.

Spectator Information

Northern California’s Classic Sports Racing Group will host its 11th Annual Charity Challenge at Sonoma Raceway on the weekend of October 3-5.

The event will include all the usual CSRG race groups, with Vintage and Historic race cars dating from pre- WWII into the 1970s, running in eight race groups, as well as Masters Historic Grand Prix run group for 3 liter Formula 1 cars.

In its first ten years, the CSRG Charity Challenge Series has raised more than six hundred thousand dollars in contributions to Speedway Children’s Charities of Sonoma.

Highlighting the fund-raising activities will be a raffle of both racing-related and nonracing items, and the always popular Charity Track Rides in cars that will be competing during the weekend.

The schedule kicks off with open practice on Friday afternoon before moving to full days of practice and racing on both Saturday and Sunday, with each of the eight race groups on track twice each day.

There will be a Food Court with a wide variety of food and beverages in the area in front of the Cafe in the Paddock.

For more information, please contact Tom Franges, Race Director, at
race_director@csrgweb.org (415) 342-1229. Check csrgracing.org for developing news on special events and features and, two weeks before the event, the weekend schedule and entry roster by Run Group.

47th CSRG Season Finale and Awards Dinner
Thunderhill Raceway Park
October 31-November 2, 2014

 

Register online (preferred) or download Entry Form (PDF)

Join us for the best party weekend of the 2014 Vintage racing season: our 47th Season Finale race weekend at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, CA, supporting the Glenn Clinic Foundation, which provides emergency medical support for the track as well as the rest of Glenn County. Please make a contribution to this essential service in the space provided on the entry form. Every $10 helps the Clinic maintain and improve its medical capabilities.

We're running on the 3 mile, traditional Thunderhill course. Thunderhill Raceway Park is a fast, technical driver’s track with an excellent surface, plenty of run-off, and outstanding amenities, including covered paddock space, plenty of electric power in the paddock, a comfortable lounge with WiFi, and an enclosed third-floor Tower Viewing Area with elevator service.

All CSRG eligible cars are welcome, and we also invite a new Historic racing class, which will have its own Run Group. The requirements for this class are:
1. The car must be an SCCA Sealed Spec Miata
2. The driver must have a Medicare Card
3. The driver must have a current Medical Card from a VMC Member Organization

Thunderhill is a sound-control track, with a maximum of 103db sound allowed, so fit mufflers if in doubt.

Willows is a historically significant agricultural town and County Seat, with some interesting architecture and good quality overnight accommodations in a wide price range. While there is perhaps a shortage of four-star restaurants, there are some good eateries within fifteen miles of town, and the catered CSRG Saturday dinner is always very good. Some 40 minutes away is the quite sophisticated University Town of Chico, which has great shopping and food.

Schedule:
This is an Open Admission Event: no tickets required, only signing the gate waiver, so bring a cheering gallery.
Thursday: Paddock access at 5 pm. Tech Inspection 5 pm to dusk.
Friday features afternoon Test & Tune by Run Group.
Saturday is Morning Practice, a Qualifying Race and an afternoon Feature Race, all by Run Group, followed by the ever-popular CSRG Awards Dinner for all entrants, their guests, track workers and volunteers, again held at the Willows Veterans Memorial Hall. Transportation from and back to the track for those staying at the track will be arranged.
Sunday, a morning warm-up followed by a day's racing. Mechanical Picnic both Saturday and Sunday, so you can exchange cars, or give rides to anyone sixteen or older.

Check csrgracing.org for developing news on special events and features. Schedule and run group lists two weeks before the event, or check who's entered on your CSRG.Motorsportreg.com home page.

Fees: You must be a Member of CSRG to enter this racing event.
If you have not registered for this year's CSRG Full Racing Membership and paid $100 dues, you must pay the Single-event Membership dues of $75.

CSRG Full Racing Member Entry Fee $500
