Join Our Skidpad Challenge at the Mitty

Nissan or Mazda, MG or Triumph, Ford or Chevy: Who makes the best-handling sports car? That’s what the staff of Grassroots Motorsports wants to find out, and their yardstick will be the skidpad, a tool used to judge automotive grip for generations.

Here’s where you come in: You are invited to enter and participate. Click here to sign up

The Grassroots Motorsports Skidpad Challenge Presented by Lucas Oil and Powered by GridLife is open to all cars—classic or modern, stock or modified—and awards prizes to class winners.

The Skidpad Challenge will take place during the Classic Motorsports Mitty Presented by Hagerty, the giant historic race weekend that rolls into Road Atlanta April 27-29. The Skidpad Challenge starts at noon on Sunday the 29th, and entry is free for anyone already at the Mitty as a spectator, vendor or race competitor.

The Skidpad Challenge is just one part of a full weekend that also includes HSR historic racing, car corrals, ride and drives and the world-famous Concours d’LeMons. For more information on the Skidpad Challenge and to sign up, just click here.

In reply to crankwalk :

The entry list is already headed up to The Mitty this morning, but regardless we take entries at the event, too, so just show up and either confirm your prior registration or make a new one.

I tried. I really tried. I got a container of Carib Club chicken and a container of curried goat to bring home to my wife. The containers made it to about Valdosta.
