Head-to-Head Racing

If you reserve in advance, with a group of at least 8 drivers, you can compete in head-to-head, two, three or four race events. The main event will be lined up in pole position. The first driver to cross the finish line on the final lap wins. Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals will be awarded at the Winners Circle Podium. This is popular for company team building events or group parties.
