NER Driver Education Event – Sponsored by South Shore Autoworks
Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP), Thompson, CT

Join us for our second of two events in 2015 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Thompson, CT for our second annual 3-day weekend September DE event. About an hour from Boston, this track is even closer than NHMS for many of us. This road course was in use in various configurations on and off for many years starting in the 50’s and running through the early 70’s. It lives again as a 1.7 mile road course with a long, fast front straight and a set of more technical sections including portions of the NASCAR oval.
