About the Event
We will be driving to High Plains Raceway (HPR) to look for the “Brick” with our club’s name inscribed, and to spectate. HPR is about 45 minutes east of DIA. You will be required to sign a waiver and wear a wristband in order to enter the facility. We will arrive at HPR near 10AM. Head home when you want, but plan to stay through lunch. There may be a lunchtime surprise.
In the mid-2000’s, several club members provided donations for the initial construction funding of this racetrack facility. At the 2022 plannual meeting, many club members expressed interest in a weekend day drive to HPR to spectate at an event, and that is the goal of this drive. We will be parking in the newly created spectator parking area, then will be walking the paddock, watching the cars on track from the various bleachers, looking for the Peak to Peak Miata Club Brick, and eating lunch. Bring your own water, sunscreen, jacket, and a hat as there is minimal shade and the weather can be variable. Restrooms are either port-a-potties or primitive with cold running water. Be prepared for lots of walking. This event is for current Peak to Peak Miata Club members and is aimed at those who have never been to HPR as an introduction to the facility as a spectator.
Cost to spectate: none. If you purchase lunch there, about $15/person (hamburgers and hotdogs). Otherwise, bring your own lunch in a cooler (recommended).
