2.5 Mile Competition Road Course

  • The championship-style Competition Road Course uses portions of BIR’s original 3.1-mile Donnybrooke Road Course, including Turns 1 through 8.
  • At Turn 8, a 300-degree right-hand clover leaf transitions drivers from the old course to the new stretch of asphalt that winds its way back across the infield, eventually tying back into the original circuit just before Turn 1.
  • In all, the Competition Road Course features 13 turns and very little elevation change but is still challenging for experienced drivers and fun for novices.
