Waterford Hills is located north of Detroit, not far from the Pine Knob Resort & DTE Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan. This is a 1.5 mile road racing track (not an oval) with right and left turns, hills and straight-aways. The fastest cars hit over 120mph on the back straight just before heavy braking to make a 90 degree right-hand turn. With one corner speed as low 25mph and another at 80mph, there's a lot of acceleration and braking every lap.
Wide, fully-paved paddock areas are located on the North and South tracks and are easily accessible from all tracks and comfort facilities. 120-volt, 50-amp electrical service is available throughout the facility. Paddocks are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Pitt Race has eight garages for rent adjacent to the North Track paddock area and eight garages near our Events Center. Garage bays are equipped with roll-up garage doors.

The GingerMan Raceway was established in 1995 by racing enthusiast Daniel Schnitta. Dan knew what was important to him as a driver when visiting a race track. His vision is to share that experience with visitors and their families.
The GingerMan is located in the appealing lakeshore town of South Haven, Michigan. Rather than spending your trip to the track in isolation visitors are just six miles away from the beach, boutiques, events and dining that are common to any beachside community.
The facilities rest on more than 300 acres of land that includes sprawling areas of a shaded wood, plenty of paddock space and a pond fully stocked with fish. They believe that visitors to GingerMan should feel the comfort of a state park.
Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of GingerMan is the dedication to the safety of the driver. The course layout was designed to minimize the chance of damaging yourself or your vehicle. GingerMan is considered the safest track in the region and among the safest of tracks in the nation.
