The Forgeline Road Course Challenge at Holley LS Fest places racers on track at NCM Motorsports Park in a competition for the fastest lap time. This segment was created for those hard core track rats who are looking for constant lapping to hone their skills. Lapping will take place on the 2 mile long West Course. The goal is five 20 minute sessions per day per driver. Cars will be grouped by skill level and instructors will be on site for novice drivers. This event segment is sanctioned by the USCA (Ultimate Street Car Association) whose primary purpose is safety, learning and fun. The Road Course Challenge is open to any make and model of vehicle as long as it is powered by a GM LS (or current generation LT) engine. The segment will be timed and various prizes will be awarded to each run group (novice, intermediate and expert).
The Forgeline Motorsports Road Course Challenge will be run on Friday and Saturday at Holley LS Fest, September 7th and 8th. Road Course Challenge participants are encouraged to check out the rest of the Holley LS Fest activities that continue through Sunday the 10th at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green which include drag racing, autocross, drifting, dyno challenge, show-n-shine and vendor midway.
