Nelson Ledges is a legendary place for many reasons. From the classic races that have been held here for decades and more recently the classic cases of disrepair and hatred. There has been a changing of the guard in the last year, which seems to be good news for all of us drivers. Tons of upkeep and improvements have been evident recently, which is awesome! I stumbled upon this place two years ago, attending my first track day in an LS1 Camaro. Pretty much, I'm hooked as this is some of the most fun I've had in my car since I've owned it.
Last year, my dad picked up a showroom new C5 Z06 and brought that to the track. So our time here has been increasing with each year. Each winter it seems like the anticipation builds and I think more and more about what I can do with my car to make it just a little bit faster around Nelsons. From what I can gather, numerous changes have occurred since our last visit back in September. The new owners are serious about maintenance and upkeep. You really could go track your car anywhere, including Mid-Ohio which is only about two hours away and has a great surface compared to Nelson Ledges. The fun thing about going here though is simple: You can see neat cars, you only drive 40 minutes from Akron and you don't break the bank when you pay your track day fee.
This footage below is my first time using the GoPro at a track event, so don't hate on it, I'm sure somebody will though. I learned some good mounting spots and bad, but overall it's crazy fun to watch your day back once you get home to relax. Hope you enjoy and maybe we'll meet you at the track this year!
