Utah Region SCCA - Track Cross at UMC

Utah Region SCCA has announced a series of three Track Cross events will be held on the race track at Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC).  The dates and track configuration are:  Friday, May 31, west track;     Friday, July 12, east track:     Friday, August 9, east track.  What is Track Cross?  An SCCA Track Cross event is run similar to an SCCA auto-x event, that is one car at a time competing for fastest time on a course.  However, the Track Cross event uses the UMC race track as the course.  So.... higher speeds and longer course, means more grins per mile !  Track Cross events follow the SCCA Time Trials car classification rules.

Each event is limited to 75 drivers, on-line registration is at Motorsports.reg.  The link for the events and registration is located on the Utah Region SCCA schedule web page.... https://www.utahscca.com/autocross/schedule


Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC)

On November 5, 2018, Tooele County agreed to sell the former Miller Motorsports Park facility to Geely division Mitime Utah Investment, LLC.  Mitime has operated the racetrack facility under contract for the past two years.   Geely is the largest private automaker in China, and the company‚Äôs holdings include foreign automotive marques Volvo, the Volvo performance brand Polestar, Lotus (and its former parent, Proton), taxicab builder The London Electric Vehicle Company, and flying car manufacturer Terrafugia. The company also owns 9.7 percent of Daimler-Benz, making it the largest shareholder, plus 8.2 percent of truck and construction conglomerate Volvo Group.

Geely is heavily invested in motorsports as well. In addition to (now) owning Utah Motorsports Campus, the company has plans to build an additional 10 comparably sized facilities across China, including the Ningbo International Circuit, which opened in 2017. The company is also involved in the FIA Chinese Formula 4 Championship and is poised to enter the FIA World Touring Car Championship with its Chinese-Swedish automotive brand Lynk & Company.

The UMC sale includes the 511-acre property, 4.438-mile reconfigurable racetrack, 0.9-mile reconfigurable kart track, an off-road short course, a rock-crawling course, a rallycross track (which debuted at the 2018 Nitro World Games), plus all buildings and physical structures.
