2020 VSCDA Gingerman Drivers School & Racing Weekend

VSCDA kicks off its 2020 Race Season with its Driver’s School followed by a weekend of racing at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, Michigan. GingerMan is a safe, 2.2-mile challenge, designed by Alan Wilson and with a growing national reputation.  It rewards excellent technical driving skills with two long straights and lots of complex turns, incorporating camber and elevation changes.

The weekend starts with VSCDA’s highly-regarded Driver’s School on Thursday afternoon, Apr 30th, with a required classroom session. May 1st is an all-day on-track school-very busy, very exciting and very fun!  We try to have a 1 to 1 ratio of experienced racer/instructors for each student.  That evening, driving privileges are awarded and accomplishments celebrated at a great barbecue. Upon graduation, you gain racing privileges recognized by VSCDA, as well as most other vintage groups in the VMC Organizations (3 race events with an “X” on your car, incident-free required).
