VIDEO: New Orleans Gets Racetrack, One Of America's Longest

September 23, 2009

Racing fans in the Deep South have reason to celebrate: NOLA Motorsports Park is constructing one of the longest road courses in America, and it's located just outside New Orleans. Altogether, the track will offer three short-ish segments of 2.4, 1.3, and 1.3 miles, which can be run all at once as a five-mile lap. TCC staffers in the Big Easy are stoked -- and happy to point out that the track's location in Avondale, Louisiana isn't prone to flooding. Not that we'd oppose a multi-fuction racetrack/boat launch, mind you. [NOLAMotor via Jalopnik]
