They changed the breakfast into 2 pancakes and 2 sausage links. It wasn't even that good. The race was poorly planned and wildly unsafe. Wouldn't recommend.

Death waiting to happen

They couldn't even be bothered to properly close off the roads for the event. I was able to get my vehicle onto the raceway several times trying to get to my destination. Somebody is going to die, and I don't recommend you ever join and be put at that risk.

Dangerous

So many cars on the raceway. Cops didn't give a shit about safety. Avoid at all costs.

Couldn't even get in

They closed off access to the parking lots. Paid for the race and they prevented us from even participating. Definitely avoid this scam.
