“America's Nurburgring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Europe has the nurburgring, we've got Road America. If you are a road racing fan and haven't yet, make the pilgrimage. Also, get yourself on the track on one of the sponsored track days, or at least during touring. The "Drive for Babies" event put on as a fundraiser by the SCCA for March of Dimes every October is a great event. Go to the vintage races in July, the ALMS in August, and get to the NASCAR guys when they are there too.

“Great track with wide variety of races.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

I'm a season ticket holder and love the variety of racing available, motorcycle, vintage, SCCA, and now NASCAR. You can drive to many great viewing spots and except for NASCAR the pits are accessible. Buy your tickets ahead if you can because that is a huge discount. Local organizations sell food at locations around the track, leans to beer and brats. Great value as most racing starts at 8 am and rund till 5 or later. For major races they have drivers autographsessions, etc. You can rent a golf cart.

“Beautiful Racecourse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

My husband and I went to the ALMS race in August with our two young adult sons. The race course is surrounded by trees. It is a large area so there are a lot of places to view all the angles of the race track. We only went for one day. They have a go cart track for public use with a fee. There are places to eat, a vending area, and the paddock area where a person can see the race cars. The restrooms were clean and odor-free. This is the third time we've been to Road America and plan on going back next summer.

“Rolling Thunder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

If you enjoy racing that is more than left hand turns, add Road America to your "Bucket List". Beautify rolling hills of Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine area. 4 miles of straights and hair pin turns. Track runs through open, as well as forested areas. Parking is liberal, allowing easy access to a variety of viewing locations. Golf carts are available for rental, although the most popular means of transport seems to be moped, or scooters that people bring. Very nice camping facilities, with realistic concession prices (other than Cigarettes - $13.00!). A great experience!
