We are excited to provide the ultimate track experience during the 2016 International Meet at the world famous Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in the rolling hills of Ohio with some of the most challenging corners anywhere. The grounds have been said to look more like a country club than a racetrack in deference to its lush green grass and beautiful trees. At 2.4-miles long with 15 turns, the circuit has earned its reputation over more than five decades of great racing among many of motorsport's legendary competitors. The iconic Goodyear Tower offers a great view of the track for those not driving.
