Road America

Road America is located near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on Wisconsin Highway 67. It has hosted races since the 1950’s, and currently hosts some of the biggest racing series in the world. Road America is considered among the best road courses in the world, and open-wheel racing journalist Robin Miller says that Road America is “the best test of road racing in North America”.

A recent upgrade to the facility saw spectator viewing and paddock access improved by the replacement of the Bill Mitchell bridge with a tunnel a hundred yards further down the road. A further nod to the performance gains wrought by modern technology is the addition of an optional chicane at Road America’s famous “kink” in the back straightaway, providing a second configuration for race series that don’t wish to expose their drivers to one of motorsport’s biggest thrills every four miles.
