Event Info:

At 3 miles, Buttonwillow is the longest and most technical track in the Los
Angeles area. With twenty-three turns, three elevation changes, the banked
"Riverside" sweeper, and a perfect drift over "Lost Hill" (AKA "Magic
Mountain"), Buttonwillow offers both a unique learning environment, and a
challenge to advanced drivers.

We will be running #1 CW as highlighted in yellow below. This track is
suitable for street cars, though we suggest that the Riverside turn should
be approached at conservative speeds of 70-80 mph in cars without race
rollover protection. The remainder of the turns on this track are
moderate-speed (35 - 70mph). Most Turns have wide runoff areas, clear of
major obstacles.

There will be 3 run groups at this event with limited registration to keep
traffic light. click here for the schedule.
