New Orleans is the largest city in Louisiana, a major United States port and a metropolitan area. The city got its name by the French city Orléans, situated on the Loire River, Centre, France. New Orleans rests in the southeast of Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. It is bounded by the parishes of St. Bernard to the east, Jefferson to the west and south, St. Tammany to the north and Plaquemines to the south.

Near New Orleans approximately 20 minutes far, in Avondale Louisiana, lies one of the most amazing motorsports parks. NOLA Motorsports Park is a road race park, very popular among drag racing drivers. The park was designed by the designer of other famous motorsports parks in the US, Alan Wilson.

It is a relatively new facility, as it opened its gates to drivers in 2011. The road course tracks include the North Track with long and shorter courses and future plans include completion of the South Track and Full Track, which are currently at phase 2 of development. The specifications of the tracks are just indescribable.

The long course of the North Track is a 2.57 mi/4.1 km long track containing 16 turns, 3360 ft/1024 m straight and has 40–50 ft/12–15 m width. The short courses of the North Track are 2.32 and 1.91 mi/3.7 and 3 km long with 16 and 12 turns, 5090 ft/1551 m straight and with 40–50 ft/12–15 m width each.

The under phase 2 of development South Track will be 2.8 mi/4.5 km long with 13 turns, 3150 ft/960 m straight and with 40–50 ft/12–15 m width. And finally, the Full Course will be 5.5 or 4.64 mi/8.8 or 7.4 km long. All tracks are covered with asphalt.

Besides these, the facility has some additional specifications that make it unique and innovative. Three karting tracks, a single lane drag strip, on site speed shop, 8 ac/32375 m² autocross pad, clubhouse, padlock and for residents luxury villas. Another asset to the facility is the brilliant idea of placing forward thinking electronic systems.

With this addition many options are now available, such as the latest timing and scoring equipment and over 100 mi/161 km of fiber optics. Safety of the tracks is guaranteed, as they have all been built using international industry standards, which provide safe, fast, exciting and challenging driving, especially when it refers to drag racing.

Even if you are not such a speed fanatic, watching a race will definitely make you want to try it. Why not perform your trial drive or even race in one of the most popular and safe parks in Louisiana?
