Road Racing

There’s nothing like a day at the races. You can participate in the action either as a driver or as a track volunteer. Members can compete and volunteer in road racing events, consisting of drivers schools, Regionals, and Majors races. The Detroit Region SCCA also serves as a volunteer backbone to the Detroit Grand Prix — volunteers get a behind the scenes look at a SCCA Pro race weekend.

The first revival the Hill Climb saw an entry list ranging from a Formula Ford to a Modified Circle Track car – which actually won! This is the fourth year of its revival and looks to be bigger and better.
