QOTD: Which Racetrack Would You Buy?

Earlier today, we brought you the news that the iconic Willow Springs Raceway in California is for sale.


Now I am wondering -- if any racetrack in the world was for sale, which one would you buy?

For me, the answer is simple -- Road America in Wisconsin. That's because it's the closest world-class circuit to me, and I have a lot of familiarity with the track and the nearest town.

Second place would be Laguna Seca, because Laguna Seca.

Or maybe Gingerman -- an underrated small track for drivers to get their feet wet when it comes to performance driving.

Now it's your turn -- which track would you buy? IMS? Daytona?

Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Monaco, definitely. Lots of nice bars around the track. 😁

    Totally agree with you on Elkhart Lake, and for the same reasons. Plus, my mom's family was from this part of Wisconsin- my grandmother grew up on a farm just a few towns away.After that, I'd say Barber, which is super-pretty. And it would it be great to own Suzuka- that's the funnest track on a video game, it must be fun in real life too.Can you buy Spa or is that public roads?Oh, wait- I'll just buy Monaco and then sell it back to them. For double.
  • William I feel very sorry for those who attempt to use an attack on a product as a way to deprecate an individual whose politics they disagree with. They delude themselves and mislead others.
  • Arthur Dailey Have to admit that I love that interior colour. And also like the upholstery on the seats and the inside of the door panels. And when was the last time you saw a door hanging coffee cup holder? Some here probably didn't know that such a device existed.
  • Buickman this is about cars. I miss Robert.
