Testimonials:

“I had one of my best autocross days ever at the Thompson Speedway. The layout was great compared to most facilities, elevation change, fast sections and a variety of turns. The staff was very friendly, helpful and full of driving advice. Looking forward to the 2014 events!”

Fact #1

A street circuit is a racing circuit composed by temporarily closed-off public roads of a city, town or village, used in motor races.

Fact #2

Autocross is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. An autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface. Autocross differs from road racing and oval racing in that generally there is only one car on the track, racing against the clock rather than other cars.

Fact #3

Manhole covers on F1 street circuits, such as Monaco, are required to be welded shut before each race due to the amount of suction created by a Formula 1 car being enough to rip them free and throw into the sky.
