Hopefully this time we do not suffer date rescheduling and bad weather issues of 2023. 

 

Thunderbolt circuit - freshly repaved this year. 

 

If your se7en is not working then yes we can arrange for you to participate with a non-7 in another group. 

 

More details will follow

What run group do you go into if your 7 has a history of working at the beginning of the event but changing it's mind before the end?

Downstairs part of same villa is still available too if anybody wants it. Des/Paul? Prices are a bit more expensive than last year for them but win some/lose some.

 

What is it and how do I rent it?

Copied from last years org details to give you full options.

Accommodation: There are a lot of preferred options available.

  • NJMP has pit suites at Thunderbolt and Villa rental options available.  Note the check in time is 7pm and the check out time is 3pm.  This allows you use of the lodging during your day at NJMP. 
  • On-Site Accommodations – New Jersey Motorports Park (njmp.com)
  • In Millville, there is a Fairfield Inn and Holiday Inn Express.  Conventional check in/out hours.
  • In Vineland, about 10 miles away, there is a Hampton Inn or Wingate by Wyndham.  Conventional check in/out hours.
  • Camping is available at NJMP by permit along with power hook ups for RVs with a fee. Showers and bathrooms are at the Officers Club at the back of the Thunderbolt pits.  Those with RVs also have the option of parking outside my garage and hooking up to my power.  
  • Camping and Electric – New Jersey Motorports Park (njmp.com)

 

 

Just be observant of your check in and check out times with NJMP accommodation.  They are different to the usual hotel hours. 

 

The Fairfield is usually the best option from my own personal experience.  The Hampton Inn is excellent but it is a few miles further drive away.

It's a nice "condo" type unit on the track. 

 

I've tried all so far. Hotel in Fairfield or nearby. VIP (hotel/motel) suit on the front straight of thunderbolt and Villa. 

 

Villa is definitely the premium experience but the costs reflect that. If not for the family I'd be very unlikely to be booking villas or even camping in the trailer but with family it justifies the expense. 

 

Rough ball park prices a night 

 

Fairfield/nearby town is $150 to $200 

VIP on the track about $220 (two beds option)

Villa $300 to $400 a night (two bedroom option) 

 

It's also worth considering where our track day is each year. VIP booking when we are on thunderbolt is very very convenient. You walk back and forth. 

 

VIP when we are lighting? Much less so as you still have to drive there and back.

Early response seems to point to a nice turnout this year.   They have repaved Thunderbolt and are finishing up the new curbing.  They still have to let the concrete curbing cure before they can do the painting.  Here is a drone video of the progress.   Word from them is that the track is a lot more grippy and safer with the improved gravel traps, increased curbing and moving back tire walls in turn one.   Going to be fun getting the Se7ens back on track after missing last year.  The more the Merrier!   Tom
