We recently had our first R1 Track Day event in its history, and boy it sure was a hot one!
Our R1 Track Day event was held at Buttonwillow Race Park on June 18th and hosted by Turn 8 Track Days. Temperatures soared well over 110 degrees throughout the day and over 150 cars registered for the event, with 20-25 of those cars equipped with our brakes.
We also had two time attack competitors compete in the time attack format. One of our time attack competitors took home 2nd place in the race class, with the 2nd fastest overall time of the day. Smelly Panda, one of our vendors, raffled off tree frog products, stickers and swag.
For the main raffle, we gave away a few sets of R1 Concepts rotors and brake pad kits, as well as an R1 swag license plate, lanyards and keychains. During lunch, our media team was able to capture some awesome footage of the track and our sponsored track cars.
Even under the blistering heat, our track day event was a huge success. We would like to thank Turn 8 and its staff for hosting our event and all competitors, drivers, and vendors that came out to support our event. We look forward to seeing YOU at our next track day event at Buttonwillow Race Park on December 10th.
