The COM Sports Car Club will open the historic 20th season of competition at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 4.
Formed initially in 1958 as Corvettes of Massachusetts, COM is one of the oldest active sports car clubs in America. This all volunteer group has grown into a diverse organization for enthusiasts and racers throughout the northeast area and into Canada.
With an outstanding reputation for providing top-notch high-speed driving instruction and highly competitive time trialing, the competitors of COM will challenge the 1.6-mile road course at the speedway on Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5.
The club utilizes the oval's wide, banked surface and then transitions into narrower sections which include tight ess turns providing fans with a real thrill. The course highlight is the steeply banked, hairpin turn known as "the bowl," which also features several dramatic changes in elevation.
"Cabin fever has been running rampant, so it's good to finally go racing," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "Not only does this open our season here at the speedway, but it ignites the big economic engine that generates millions of dollars locally and regionally."
