    Event Location: Manzanar Airfield

    Street: AddressManzanar Reward Road

    City: Independence (just north of Lone Pine)

    State or Province: CA

    Postal/Zip Code: 93545

    Country: USA

    Location Description:

    Driving DirectionsMazanar Airfield: Located 10 miles north of the city of Lone Pine, CA at Manzanar Reward Road. The airfiled is approximatel 1/4 mile east of US 395. GPS: 36.734620, -118.149719 [+36° 44' 4.63", -118° 8' 58.99"]

    The Dow Villa Motel loacated in the center of downtown Lone Pine is hosting the event lodging. 20 rooms have been blocked so please make your reservations as soon as possible! Parking is limited to individual cars. There is no space for parking trailers directly in the Motel parking lot. However, there are several other hotels in town that have a bit more room. All rooms in Lone Pine are filling up quickly this time of year so get your reservations now.

    This high speed time trial is held on the abandoned Manzanar Airfield located in the Owens Valley, 10 miles north of Lone Pine. It was built in the early 40’s primarily for military training purposes. Roughly a decade had passed and the base was abandoned. Since then it has been used for a handful of military activities, TV commercials and special motorsport events such as this. The surface consists of the original asphalt and aggregate and prior to the annual “clean up” effort, can be partially overgrown with seasonal weeds as well as a particular contribution from both the indigenous and domesticated wildlife. This event has always had a surreal aura to it. The mysterious Airfield is bordered to the West by the snowcapped Sierras and Mt. Whitney. To the east, the far more arid Inyo Mountain range overshadows the foreboding Death Valley National Park.

    For a number of regular competitors, this is the only motorsport event they attend all year. For others, it is a unique opportunity to “stretch the legs” of their vehicle of choice in a picturesque yet raw event location. The course is fast and flowing with sparsely spaced pylon chicanes down both sides of the 5000’ runway and taxiway. Most vehicles will negotiate the majority of the 2+ mile course in third and fourth gear, only downshifting to 2nd to negotiate either of two slaloms and the start/finish area. The surface is fairly abrasive with heavy marbles off line, but there is quite a bit of traction to be found for those who drive a clean and tidy race line. The surface characteristics just add to the challenge and unique nature of this event.
