Once the sun rises, and the mosquitoes are no longer at Biblical pestilence levels, you can truly appreciate the glory that is the NOLA Motorsports Park. It has everything a gearhead could want. There is a full 2.75 mile long road course with (allegedly) one of the longest front straights in the United States.
While I was there specifically for the Global Time Attack races, that was part of the much larger NOLA Speed and Style event, which included time attack, open track HPDE, drifting, a car show, vendor booths, and probably more. So you wind up getting a wristband when you’re admitted, similar to a music festival, but one with more smoke and fire. And more EDM. So…like a German music festival, I guess.
