Track Name: NOLA Motorsports Park

Configuration: 2.75 Mile with the "Esses"

Direction: Clockwise


Attention NASA Drivers - Registration is now open for the February 11/12 NASA Gulf South Event


To start off the New Year, the first thing that you should know is the NASA NOLA Region has a new name. While most events will still be held at NOLA Motorsports Park, the new region will now be called NASA Gulf South. Actually, it is a more than just a name change since the region will no longer be operated by NOLA Motorsports Park. This is a positive change which has the blessing of NASA National and NOLA Motorsports Park. Click here for the press release on Speed News.


February will be a joint event with NASA Florida Region. We are expecting 30+ cars out of Florida. The track configuration will be the 2.75 mile with the "esses" which is the same circuit used by SRO for the Fanatec GT World Challenge Events at NOLA Motorsports Park.
