The Sunset Cruise driving experience allows race fans to drive their own car around the iconic Road America racetrack. After a brief driver’s meeting, guests get to see the track from the racer’s perspective as they take three guided, slow-speed laps over the 4.048-mile circuit. The driving experience, which lasts from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., accommodates as many guests as there are seatbelts in the vehicle and includes a visit to the 4 Mile merchant for souvenirs.<p>
Carved out of 640 acres of Wisconsin farmland, the 4.048-mile, 14-turn racetrack at Road America allows roadsters of all size and stripe to careen the original track design throughout the raceway’s full season of stock-car, motorcycle, and vintage-car collecting events. The iconic raceway, one of the fastest permanent road-racing tracks in the world, nurtures aspiring Andrettis through its driving school and accommodates gatherings with group outings, such as go-karting, snowshoeing, or geocaching adventures. On race day, guests can take advantage of golf-cart rentals to enjoy the action and fill up on snacks at some of Road America’s 13 concession stands.
