Hear the V8 engine roar as you power around Gateway Motorsports Park and get a taste of what it is like to be a pro racing driver. Feel the excitement of sitting behind the wheel and passing the other drivers on the track. All cars are actual race cars previously used in the NASCAR Nextel Cup, including the Chevrolet Monte Carlos, Pontiac Grand Prix, Ford Taurus and Dodge Charger.
Newly re-opened for the 2012 season, Gateway Motorsports Park is a 1.25 mile oval track that’s a firm favorite with the drivers who race there, thanks to its unique shape and different degrees of banking in each corner. Turns 1 and 2 have characteristics similar to New Hampshire Motor Speedway while Turns 3 and 4 are similar to Phoenix International Raceway and the track’s egg shape mimics the legendary Darlington Raceway.
Drivers must be aged 18 years and over and have a valid driver's licence. All racing suits, helmets and safety equipment are provided.
