CARFEST 2017 This Weekend At Mid-Ohio

1 Sep , 2017  

There’s SO much to do at CARFEST this weekend at the venerable Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course that you might find your mind racing (pardon the pun).

Included in the event are the following:

Drive your car on the Mid-Ohio track. HPDE runs all weekend – choose to drive for 1, 2, or all 3 days. If you’ve never had the opportunity to drive on a road course, we welcome you to join us and see what it’s all about.  Enjoy plenty of track time, small run groups, and a friendly atmosphere.

Drivers are split by experience into Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced run groups.  Instructors are available for Novice Drivers.  Drivers who have never been on track before may register for the Road Course Acclimation Program for a low cost, “get your feet wet” exposure to on-track driving.

Experience Autocross. Who’s faster – you, or your friends?  Find out in a safe and friendly competition!  Race against the clock – best times win!

Please note: helmets are required, and there will NOT be loaner helmets available. This is the best way to experience Autocross – no standing around all day waiting, no working the course – just drive!

Attend a car show. Car Show entry tickets include Saturday General Admission. All makes & models welcome! This will take place on Saturday from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Voting ends at 2:30 PM, and winners will be annunced at 3:30PM

Experience the DYNO. Get your car on the DYNO at CARFEST. $100 cash prize on the highest horsepower for the day. Mystery prize for the lowest horsepower each day. If you can guess your car’s horsepower, your DYNO session is free.

Listen to great music. Including:

  • DJ – All weekend long. Music all day, everyday, with DJ Jai from DC Sound Productions as MC.
  • Opening acts, Saturday evening –Eric Brooke Trio and Hope for the Hollow
  • Headline Act, Saturday night – Runaground
