Gingerman Raceway
South Haven, MI

Event Info

The Chicago Region invites you to join us for our 21st annual Drivers Education weekend at GingerMan Raceway, which is located just outside the scenic Lake Michigan resort community of South Haven, Michigan. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 23rd and Sunday, July 24th. We hope you can join us for one of the season’s premier DE events.

GingerMan Raceway is a challenging 2.21 mile road course with 11 turns, a number of elevation changes, and plenty of runoff areas. Not only is it fun to drive, but it was built with optimal driver safety in mind, which makes it a great choice for less experienced drivers.
