12hrs of Lehigh Valley Grand Prix
Lehigh Valley Grand Prix is gearing up for it’s biggest race of the year. The 12hrs of LVGP is a test of speed, endurance and mental toughness. Teams from all over North America will be arriving in the Lehigh Valley to prove who is the best. Last year’s event yielded teams from Michigan, Canada, Charlotte, Phoenix and the surrounding regions. The competition was fierce and one critical tactical error can cost a team the race.
What is perhaps the most amazing part of the race is the fact that some teams will only have 2 drivers! 6 hrs behind the wheel is a long time to be driving on an indoor track. These drivers tend to have a tremendous amount of time behind the wheel participating in all realms of racing from outdoor karting, sprint cars, indy cars and some even from NASCAR.
These drivers will all be fighting for some big prizes. The first place team will receive $2,400, 2nd- $1,600 and 3rd place will win free entry to next year’s race. Teams are starting to confirm for this big event. The entry is $1,200 and to reserve your team you must put down a deposit of 50%.
Even if you are not racing, it will be a great event to come and watch some of the best drivers from around North America fight it out for 12hrs!!!
