Join the Midwest Fiero Clubs at the M1 Concourse on Friday, July 14, 2023 as part of the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Pontiac Fiero Presented by M1 Concourse. Friday’s track day event will feature something for everyone – from spectator to sports car driver. Individuals will have the opportunity to participate in a parade lap experience on the 1.5 mile course or to engage in lead/follow performance driving in small groups based on driver ability.
The all-day event will begin with performance laps in the AM. Each performance lap group will consist of 3-4 cars and drivers will go through a driver seminar before being turned loose on the track with a pace car. New to the road course experience? You’ll be placed in a group that will allow you to feel comfortable while learning how your car handles. Experienced with road racing? You’ll find yourself in a higher speed grouping that will allow you to push your car on one of the finest road courses in the nation.
Those who wish to partake in the performance experience will need to wear a Snell SA2015 or newer helmet. Helmets are available at M1 but will have to be shared among the group. Performance Fieros must pass a tech inspection that requires tires that are date stamped 4 years old or less and in good condition with no dry rot and above minimum tread depth. No fluid leaks are permitted. Wheel bearings cannot have any play and brakes must be in good condition. Fieros cannot exhibit any structural rust near suspension components and must have functioning brake and hazard lights. As we get closer to the event, a full tech sheet will be shared with registered and potential participants. Only 30 slots will be open for performance Fieros and the cost will be $100 each.
Mid-day, the track experience will be open for a wider audience with the parade lap segments. Larger groups of 30 Fieros will converge on the track behind one of the true Indy Pace Cars for a lower speed touring experience (not to exceed 45 mph). Passengers will be permitted for this portion of the day and up to 60 Fieros will be able to partake in the parade laps at a cost of $25 each. As with the performance cars, parade cars will also need to pass a technical inspection; however, requirements are a bit more relaxed requiring tires be in good condition with no dry rot and above minimum tread depth. No fluid leaks are permitted. Fieros must also have functioning brake and hazard lights.
More information regarding technical inspections and driver training will be released as it becomes available from M1 Concourse. In the meantime, get your Fieros ready! We look forward to seeing you in July!
