View Full Version : NW Ohio track day (Nelson Ledges)

Its $100 bucks for the day. 9am to 4pm
We'll be out at least 20 min out of each
hour. Beginners will be with instructors
until they feel your all right to go out
by yourself. You will need a helmet.



Track Map

a few members of our local car board will be there, including me and a few other 240s. the track is kind of beat up but you cant beat the track time/price ratio as last time i went through a tank and a half of gas on track. it is a very casual environment and it is a ton of fun. so if you are looking for some cheap track time in the ohio region here you go. also, last time there was only one instructor so if you dont want to be waiting around to get instructions i wouldnt come to this one.

Wow small world :) There is a group of SE-R pilots (two of us also have 240SXs) that are doing a Nelson/Cedar Point weekend on the weekend for 9-5. Here are the details:

Thursday night we are driving all the way to Nelson and staying at the
beautiful Newton Inn...

Friday and Saturday night we are staying here...

Make your reservations now. I just made mine.

We need to be at the track at 9:00AM Friday. Go here and read up on the
track requirements. Chris, any snell helmet is Ok.


I would also suggest everyone bring a large container for fuel. The
closest gas station is 7 miles away and you will go through at least one
tank...I promise.

Friday afternoon we will load up and head to the Days Inn in Lakewood,
OH. This is 5 minutes from The Flats where we'll be partying and
swapping race stories.

Saturday we will need to be at the park by 10AM. It's a good 1.5 hr
drive from Lakewood. After a day of creaming our asses off on Top
thrill Dragster...
...we'll head back to the Flats :)

Hey Aaron, this is Luke. Just checking out
the sight and seeing who was going.:cool:

hmm.. makes me actually wanna get my car setup and get out there :)

We should have about 8-10 cars. I either need to get my 240 running (doing engine swap now) or replace my rear hub (stripped out the splines on one of my studs) in the next 3 weeks so I have a car ready to go by Sept 5th lol. The NX is heavily modded so thats my first choice for the event. The 240 will have a Fujitsubo 3" exhaust and a POP charger. Plus I've never driven it so I don't know what else its going to need. I just found out last night the brake master cylinder had died and was *completely* empty. I guess I may as well throw a z32 one on while I'm at it :)
