Welcome to Global Speedway Tours – Australia
USA Speedway Tours
Knoxville Nationals … Indy 500 … World of Outlaws … Sprintcars … wings or no wings … Midgets … Silver Crown cars … Chili Bowl … Late Models … Dirt tracks … Paved tracks … Drag Racing … Daytona 500 … NASCARS … X-FINITY cars … Trucks
We provide what you want.
The world is opening up and Australia is running strongly with the rest. Rather than xooming on computer screens we are looking forward to zooming back into real life in 2022 and beyond.
We have tours ready for sale as soon as we are confident they can proceed. This website lays out what we want to do in the area of dirt track racing when we are allowed to. Not to mention NASCARS, Indy cars plus plenty of sightseeing and fun.
Both of our 2022 tours are now fully subscribed. Good for us I guess and for those travelling, but unfortunately it means you will have to wait another 12 months to join us in the USA or Darwin.
But we will be back in 2023 and 2024.
Click on everything that is in orange to read more.
You can get all the information you need by swapping to the Itinerary page to read all about the 2022 tour and how it shapes up. You will get something pretty similar in 2023 and 2024 because our USA tours in those two years will be constructed so you can take in Ohio Sprintweek, PA Sprintweek, Indiana Sprintweek and the Knoxville Nationals. And dozens of races in between.
To fit all that into one tour means you would be away from Australia for three months. (89 days to be exact, because unless you have a full visa to visit the USA, you can only stay for 90 days before you have to leave the country.) Three months is a long time to be on the road. You can do it all if you want to, but most people will prefer to choose the time period they want to be away. We are proposing that the tour will segmented in 2023 & 2024 which will allow you to choose the period of time you want to be away and what you want to see.
Across the course of the next few months you will see new itineraries and ideas popping up on this website for you to consider. Please keep checking back to see what’s changed!
Many of our committed Global Speedway Tours customers return year after year for their fix of racing in America and now that the Covid era is hopefully behind us, we expect that more and more will want to get back there. But new customers are a vital part of our growth and we would sincerely welcome you to our team if you haven’t travelled with us before. Provided you get in early, there is always room for more, so please don’t be shy and contact Peter Physick via this link, or ring him on 0419 264159 to enquire.
Our return to America in 2022 is marked by the BEST of the BEST tour. It’s now sold out but it will be replicated across the next two years as described above. “BoB” temporarily ook the place of its “big brother”, the flagship Month of Money” tour that we have run every year since 2011.
You can read all about our BoB by simply clicking here. The tour is 32 days long, (or 39 if you want) and takes in seven nights of Pennsylvania Sprint week, non wing USAC sprints at Putnamville, a night at Knoxville Raceway, midget racing at Angell Park, the Lucas Oil Late Models at Davenport and Deer Creek Speedways, the USAC Nationals at Husets Speedway, the Brad Doty Classic at Attica, four nights at Eldora for the Historical Big One and the Kings Royal, Tri City Speedway in Franklin, PA, the WoO at Port Royal, the PA Posse at Selinsgrove, the USAC Silver Crown cars at Winchester, three, five or seven nights of USAC’s Indiana Sprintweek, the NASCAR Trucks at Lucas Oil Raceway, the unique doubleheader at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Indycars and the Xfinity cars on the same program and finally the NASCARS on the roadcourse inside Indianapolis Speedway.

This popular tour is on sale and will depart Australia again in May 2024 if there is a minimum of seven people who want to jump on board. for 28 days in the USA’s racing heartland of Indiana and Illinois.

For the moment we’ll leave that in place so you can get a feel for what your holiday will be all about. Across 27 nights and 28 days you will see the Indianapolis 500 in all its glory including Carb Day at Indy on the previous Thursday. The USAC non winged 410 sprintcars headline the show at Terre Haute, the Silver Crown cars are on the dirt at the one mile Indy Fairgrounds dirt oval, the extraordinary Little 500 at Anderson where 33 non winged sprintcars race for 500 laps on the high banked 1/4 mile bitumen oval, the World of Outlaws winged sprintcars at Lawrenceburg, six nights in Kentucky and Tennessee visiting Memphis for Graceland and Sun Studios, Bike night on Beale Street, the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, two nights of the World of Outlaws as they invade Nashville, TN for the very first time, six nights of USAC’s Indiana Midget Week and lastly five nights of POWRi’s Illinois Midget Week, plus regular shows at Kokomo and Bloomington, not to mention two nights in Chicago for sightseeing.
Perhaps our most intensive racing tour yet …..
Like its cousin the Indy 500 tour, Florida can only proceed if we have a minimum of seven confirmed paticipants. Enquiries are welcome.
The Coronavirus outbreak caused us to defer the Indy and Florida tours for a few years. But they are such good trips that they deserve to go every year. Just imagine this!! After getting the Warrnambool Classic under your belt, you’ll have just enough time to get home and repack before leaving for America. Across 21 nights you will stay right on Daytona Beach, see the Daytona 500 and up to four lead up races during NASCAR Speedweek, including the X-Finity Cars and the Trucks. Plus watch the World of Outlaws sprintcars as they open their season at Volusia with the All Stars for five consecutive nights. Plus the WoO Late Models, more Late Models at East Bay Raceway and USAC non winged 410 sprintcar and misget racing at Bubba Park Raceway.
All this along with two nights in Florida’s extraordinary Key West, three nights in Orlando for the theme parks, a full day at Kennedy Space Centre, plus three nights in San Francisco on the way home.
Oh, and not to forget your Airboat ride through the Florida Everglades!
Perhaps our most romantic tour yet ….. here’s what the 2020 itinerary would have looked like.
