Coming off 2022 when the 530-acre complex built in 1993 hosted 951 event days, 1000 would seem like an easy objective but not according to track CEO David Vodden. “We are fortunate to have four paved surfaces and the beginning of a Rally Cross course in the dirt, noted Vodden but then added that hosting1000 event days is a bit too much for the dozen or so full-time employees that staff the San Francisco Sports Car Club of America track. Vodden says that the volume is possible because the track can host events simultaneously. “We have had five surfaces running simultaneously on several occasions,” Vodden said.
The breakdown of event days counted as single-days on each of the surfaces was: 322 days on the three-mile course; 278 days on the two-mile course; 239 on the big skid pad and another 108 on the smaller skid pad. To this were added 4 days on the dirt for Rally Cross. The track was built to ensure that the men and women who enjoy recreational motorsports would always have a track to use. Just recently this has included four different SCCA groups starting with road racing and adding autocross, Track Night in America, and Rally Cross. “It is great to see all facets of the SCCA taking advantage of Thunderhill,” observed Michael Smith the chairman of the Board of the track company known as San Francisco Region Properties, Inc.
Additionally, 23 new garages will open up at Thunderhill Park in the spring of 2023. These taller and larger garages will be located where the small skid pad has been for years and allow for more paid trailer parking at the track. Several garages have already been spoken for so call now or e-mail your request to be on the waiting list and one of the lucky racers who has a garage at Thunderhill Park.
