If you grew up watching motorsports like Formula One, NASCAR, and MotoGP, knowing where it’s being held and on which race track is almost second nature. Motorsports is one of the most enthralling sporting events in the world, mashing a driver’s skill behind the wheel with breakneck speeds. Unfortunately, most of the race tracks you spot on TV aren’t open to the public, especially when it’s not a reputable racing event.

In today’s automotive world, sports cars have evolved to the point where it becomes nearly impossible to push to the limits on public roads, with safety being a priority concern. The only real way to test out your favourite sports car is on a proper racing track, one that has unique turns and bends as well as elevation changes. All these will put your car and your driving skills to the test.

What’s great about these race tracks is that they have been around for centuries, bringing with it a storied past. From the likes of the Daytona International Speedway in Miami to the Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Monza and even Nürburgring in Germany, these iconic race tracks are known throughout the world for being some of the best race tracks to put cars to the test.
