  • I love drag racing, especially the nitro and funny fuel cars. Night of Fire/Thunder is what i love the most. We go every year, it is reasonable and affordable. HEARING PROTECTION STRONGLY ADVISED....  more

  • Watching the racing was a blast, I wish they would set a minimum time. We had to watch rusty F-150s racing Honda civics! Fun for the drivers, not the crowd. The place is looking run down.

  • They do an excellent car show! Came here for the first time and was extremely impressed by the races and cars! I wish they did a better job at keeping everything on schedule to ensure the fans get to see the best possible experience, and the place itself could use a little face lift exterior wise. The staff were kind and the show was spectacular, would love to come back in the future.
  • My first drag race event and I was not disappointed. The grounds as well as the spectator stands were all accessible along with the vendors on site. The staff was courteous and help me navigate my way around. If you want to check out drag racing at its best check out the website for racing schedule.
  • Had a great time at the Berlin Klassic car show this year with my son! The place had everything you could possibly want including vendors, drag strip, race track, lots of parking, and even areas to put up a tent and do some camping. Will definitely come back next year for the 2023 event as it was such a great time. The Motorplex is also really close to Grand Bend so if you want to go grab something to eat or go to the beach it's as easy as a 5 minute trip up the road. I also liked how easy the location is to get to from major cities like London as it's not even that far from there. Would definitely recommend active going to any special events they hold at the Motorplex as you'll probably have a great time!
  • My Dad and I were there on Saturday. It was our second time attending (2019 being the first). We had fun (and would like to return), however, we do feel that for the cost of admission, improvements could definitely be made to the facility to enhance the experience… - The bleachers feel like they’re ready to collapse at any moment. As did the floor under the toilet in the women’s washroom. - More food stands so you’re not standing in line for an hour, as well as tables to sit at (with umbrellas to get out of the sun). - Shaded areas! The only spot with shade was behind the one set of bleachers, but then you can’t see anything on the track. It was ridiculously hot on Saturday! We saw SO many sunburned people! - Music playing or audience interaction should take place when the crews are working on the track. This year that happened a lot and the audience ended up entertaining themselves by starting a “wave off” between the two sides of the track, which was fun, but the audience shouldn’t have to put that together themselves. Luckily the night always ends with “Hellfire”, and that’s always a blast!
  • Great time great atmosphere. Always a great show when we go. Been at least 8 years since I've been last. Definitely coming back again.
