Step One Automotive Group and Step One Motorsports to host high-speed thrills at Step One Motorsports Festival
Step One is set to host the ultimate petrolhead extravaganza at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida on Saturday, 24 June 2023, for what promises to be a fun-filled day where automotive excellence and high-octane motorsport thrills meet.
Throughout the day, there will be opportunities to interact with professional racing drivers Chris Walsh and Juan Manuel Correa. Walsh, an ex-United States Bobsledder and active-duty service member of the United States Air Force is debuting in IMSA’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Pirelli GT4 America series while Juan Manuel Correa is pursuing his dream of becoming a Formula 1 driver, competing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship alongside driving in the World Endurance Championship’s LMP2 class.
At the event, attendees will have an opportunity to participate in an exclusive meet-and-greet with Correa and Walsh (10:00 AM – 12:00 PM), followed by adrenaline-fueled hot laps around the Five Flags Speedway track (12:30 PM – 4:30 PM) with a bona fide racing driver at the wheel, showing you exactly what a high-performance vehicle is truly capable of. The hot laps are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The circuit itself is a half-mile (0.8-kilometer) paved oval in Pensacola, Florida. Having opened in 1953, Five Flags Speedway has since held a number of high-profile NASCAR events including Grand National races, predecessor to the modern-day NASCAR Cup Series. Five Flags Speedway is also known for its famous Snowball Derby race, an event at which Step One Motorsports Ambassador Chandler Smith claimed victory in 2021.
On the track’s infield, a day-long car meet will take place where you can join fellow automotive enthusiasts reveling in a fantastic display of vehicles and engaging with like-minded motoring aficionados.
Also, on offer at the free, family-friendly event will be several food trucks, a DJ, and a variety of interactive motorsport-themed games among other petrolhead-pleasing activities.
