Death Week is a Go!

The tracks are confirmed and pre-entries have begun flowing in for the first (and only) Death Week.

Death Week will be a one-off, eighth-mile event featuring four days of racing across 2000 miles of the most beautiful and extreme landscapes this great country of ours has!

As well as racing, we will be visiting the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Sequoia National Park and more. This is as much about the road trip as the racing, a journey you will never forget.
