MAP Proving Grounds

Two Turbo Weekends! Import and sport compacts take over BIR

MAP_WLook to BIR for a massive collection of imports and sport compact cars June 17-19 and Sept. 11-13 for the Modern Automotive Performance Proving Grounds, which is back again this year with a bigger and better show that features drag racing, drifting and autocross competitions, burnout contests, open lapping on the road course, a car show and a whole lot more.

The Proving Grounds features turbo-charged cars and trucks. The fan favorite has been the drifting competition, where drivers are timed as they navigate through a course mostly in controlled (or uncontrolled, in some cases) skids. Translation: lots of smoke, burnt rubber and screeching.

Autocross is similar in that drivers are timed as they maneuver through a course, but they’re slower and more controlled without the skidding. Open lapping – called Time Attack – is on the road course, where cars aren’t racing against each other but race against the clock while gunning for the quickest time.

248pxby201pxWebDrag racing is also very popular as fans get to watch some very quick cars in several classes. It’s not unusual to see some 8- and 9-second cars on the quarter mile. Import bikes have their own class as well.

There’s also a competition for those who want to compete in Triple Track Showdown, where drivers accumulate points by competing in drag racing, autocross and the Time Attack open lapping.
