Hello everyone, My sons and I will be camping about an hour north of Rock Island this weekend for our Labor Day vacation. I was going to bring them down to watch the races… can anyone give me an idea of parking? Places to go? Trip advice? I have twin 3 year old boys so I think they will like it :) Thanks! Colin
Glad your looking into watching the action at RIGP. You can get the schedule HERE for the weekend. I suggest to plan on getting there Sunday when the mains start. There are a few parking lots on the north side of the track, or a parking ramp near the Holiday Inn. Bring some of the camping chairs to sit in, find a spot and enjoy the racing. There are events going on at every turn, but try to get inside turn four (middle of track) as they have kids stuff there from year to year. Enjoy your trip.
3 tips, get there early, parking once all the racers and the racers family and pit crew get there becomes scarce. Be careful where you park, one year I had the pleasent experience of finding my car. Bring something for shade, or sun screen. If your trying to get your kids into karting, its worth getting the pit pass to show your kids around.
