It is hard to believe with all the snow still on the ground, but according to the astronomical calendar, spring will be here on March 20th. The coming of spring will quickly be followed by Blackhawk Farms first motorsports event of 2013.
During the off-season, more changes have been made to the track and facilities. As you may remember, mid-season repairs were required to a few places last season, and we are happy to report that the repair has held without any further surface deterioration. Additional repairs to the shoulders on the outside of turns 4 and 6 have also been implemented to help redefine the racing surface and to provide a safer periferal area.
After successive seasons of improving the facilities buildings on the infield, this winter we turned our attention to the entrance of the track. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by an overhauled registration building. We also have retired the old gate shack, with a new gate house being installed just before the track opens in April. Both projects have been designed to help ease the process of registration for quicker entry into the track.
Darleen and staff also will be returning for 2013 at the Cafe Fastee, bringing you more of the fabulous food and specials we have all come to love.
On-line registration for BFR auto and motorcycle track days has also been added to our PitStop online store. Please make sure to follow the instructions through the registration process.
Everyone at the track is excited to start the 2013 season, and we look forward to seeing all of you this year at Blackhawk Farms Raceway!
