Are you looking to hit the track in Autocross, Drifting, Drag Racing, or Time Attack but don't want to pay all the fee's and registration while being unsure if it's for you? Fear not, as MAPerformance's Proving Grounds 2014.1 and 2014.2 allow you to experience all that registered racing has to offer, at a fraction of the cost! Proving Grounds is held at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, MN. The first of two weekends will be June 20-22, 2014 with the second of the two weekends occuring September 5-7, 2014. Events are available for drivers of all skill levels in Imports and Sport Compact cars with varying performance levels. Classes help separate the weekend warrior from the trailer queen, making this event fun for all! Furthermore, the Triple Track Showdown will crown the ultimate racer, challenging the driver in Drag Races, Auto-X, and Time Attack events! Do you have what it takes to the Proving Grounds 2014 TTS Champion? Classes are typically divided up based on Induction and Engine Performance, however some restrictions apply. The main idea is to let everyone have an equal opportunity to win their categories! More information can be found by visiting the Drag Racing, Auto Cross, Road Course, and Drifting class pages! Is it your first track day? No worries. Make sure your tire's have plenty of tread, your brakes are strong enough to handle the high heat environment of HPDE, your suspension is up to date (no blown struts!), and your engine fluids are full. Lastly (and most importantly) you'll need proper head protection that is 2005+ Snell approved. Everything will be inspected at the track, so be prepared!
