TAKE A ROAD TRIP TO SEE NASCAR (OR THE BTCC)

Autocar - - A CARVOYANT’S GUIDE TO 2019 TOP TIPS - JA

With 40-plus V8 stock cars bat­tling on tight ovals, Nascar rac­ing is in­tense, spec­tac­u­lar and very Amer­i­can. So a Nascar race is a per­fect ex­cuse for a Great Amer­i­can Road Trip, es­pe­cially with many tracks in fan­tas­tic lo­ca­tions. You could drive the Blue Ridge Park­way be­tween Bris­tol, Ten­nessee (7 April), and Rich­mond, Virginia (13 April), cruise Cal­i­for­nia’s wine coun­try for Sonoma (23 June), or visit the heart of the south in Tal­ladega, Al­abama (13 Oc­to­ber).

Don’t fancy Amer­ica? Try the British equiv­a­lent and drive to a BTCC race. Knock­hill (15 Sep­tem­ber) of­fers great rac­ing, top views and fine Scot­tish roads.
