“The Race to the Clouds is one of the most well-known motorsport events in the world,” stated Fred Veitch, board chairman. “It is such a unique spectator event. While it is not held on a traditional track with views of the entire racing circuit, each of our spectator areas holds something special. The Start Line welcomes fans to enter the pit area, see the cars up close and talk to the drivers. Halfway Picnic Grounds is typically the fastest section of the course, and Devils Playground offers unobstructed views from above the tree line of turns below. There’s really something for every race fan.”
Tickets are on sale now with incentives to carpool reflected in Family Pack pricing. A limited number of overnight camping permits are also available for spaces at 9 Mile (tents only); Halfway Picnic Grounds, Ski Area and Glen Cove. Maximum length for all motorhomes and trailers is 26 feet. Due to limited parking space this will be strictly enforced at the Gateway. Everyone in a camping space must also purchase a race ticket. Children ages 9 and under are admitted free of charge.
During Race Week, early morning practice sessions are held from 5:30 am to 8:30 am. Tickets to attend these sessions are also available to a limited number of fans.
