  • Attended the Petit Le Mans 2019 with my wife; we were here in 2016 also. This is a wonderful event with a lot of things to see. You can get up close and talk with the drivers and check out the race....  more »
  • One of my favorite tracks--enough that I make the 16 hour drive from Houston each year. Track surface is pretty good overall (esp compared to Texas tracks) and has a really good flow for bikes. There is a bump coming in to turn 1 and some uneven pavement on the exit of 1 leading to turn 2 that you can hit if you're not on the proper line that can upset your bike though. It's a very fast track and is what I would consider a liter bike track though I had plenty of fun on my 675. I just spent half of the back straight with the bike topped out so I would recommend re-gearing to get more top end. The facilities are showing their age but everything works. There's showers and bathrooms on the second tier paddock terrace and this year the second tier was blocked off to vehicles I'm guessing because it had just been repaved? The lower/main paddock has electric drops and even some water hookups. Some of the electrical hookups look like an electrical fire waiting to happen while others look good. There's full fluid recycling on site which is really nice. Spectating is really good as there are perimeter roads that allow for access to most of the track. Location is good overall. Grocery stores, super Walmart, etc within 10-15 minutes drive.
  • This place is amazing! Such an iconic race track that will be in our history of racing forever! The improvements are nice. Parking is good. The Georgia clay around the track is awesome! I've had the pleasure of visiting the track occasionally over the year and every visit is wonderful!
