  • Always a good time. While I know nothing about the race itself this place is awesome for a party. Laid back and the event staff never bothers you. You can basically do whatever you want. Lots of people to mingle and talk with. My only complaint is terrible bathroom and showers. So expect to be in the stone age with that. Lots of young underage drinking going on so either keep your mouth shut and deal with it or don't come around.
  • beautiful place . maintained well. there is a shuttle service for the to and fro commute in the trail. The trail is of 1 mile each way. The people are very friendly. The bus driver had been our guide also. He explained us the heritage of the place. A clean place. surely going to visit again.
  • One of the best racetracks in the world. Great viewing. So much history
  • We have such a great time when we go ! A lot of Nice people, no fighting ! My grandsons 2 years old and seen 3 or 4 races already ! 😁😎
