  • You can take a peak at the cars through the door window in the museum store before buying your ticket. Store memorabilia was reasonably priced, though there was little that had only the track's name on it (without "museum"). This was an informal practice day. Afterwards was able to drive to the track area customer parking lot, walk up to the top of the roof and take pictures of the pit lane from above, then walk back down to the area behind the race car garages, where from I was able to take pictures of the inside of the garages and saw others take pictures with some of the drivers. I didn't know any of them do i skipped it!
  • Absolutely amazing, I loved it and so did my little man. Highly recommended to come and see this place of your a big car fan
  • Excellent. Great display and information about racing cars and bikes. Highly recommend
  • Good to see cars you saw racing, however it's not that big a museum , and is quite basic. Could do with some interactions.
  • Entry is well priced, and good little collection of racing cars for proper gear heads. Would be nice to get a bit more close & personal without the banners/ropes.
