We live about 5 miles away from RA and go there a couple of weekends a year. This year we'll for sure be at the Indy Car race.


A good place is along the fence line coming out of turn 4 heading to turn 5. Another popular spot is the "carousel" area. If you go to the RA website you can see the map. Book early because the good spots go fast. Also if you have a ATV or golf cart it'll save you a lot of walking.


The past couple of years they have been installing Huge TV's in the popular corners so you can view the entire track. They are also doing many other upgrades in the concession areas.


The entire tack and surrounding areas/small towns and villages are very family friendly and you can walk around day or night without issues.

Thanks for the info. I booked in the area coming out of turn 3 going into that 4/5 area, as the carousel is already booked. We are doing corners this year as last year was all straightaways.

We bring our bikes. They work great at our favorite tracks Watkins Glen and Mid-Ohio. Thankfully, management FINALLY allowed bikes last year at Mid-Ohio for their Indy car event. Though Mid-Ohio is a bit smaller, those weekends of walking got brutal at times.

Looking forward to a great time and establishing another yearly tradition.

I think you/family will like that area. The bikes are a great idea and that's what my wife and I usually bring along. In our younger years we would go to Indy Car races all over the US and Toronto. All of Wisconsin fans were saddened when RA screwed up that race. But they brought in new management over the years and the track amenities and races have improved over the years.

If you ever get the chance you should come up for the International Challenge with Brian Redman. A canít miss spectacle for enthusiasts of all ages is the Nationwide Concours d'Elegance racecar parade on Friday night, which runs from the track through downtown Elkhart Lake to where the cars park along Lake Street from 6-8 p.m. Throngs of people fill the town and line the street. Led by a pace car and directed by the police from the track the quiet town is taken over by millions of dollars worth of vintage racing cars. The sound, while not as visceral as being at the track itself is unique in that you are seeing the pinnacle of vintage motoring rumble through public roads. "copied from their website.

We are selling our Coach in the next couple of weeks but we will for sure be at RA for the Indy Cars.

Take care
