    Default looking for karting/race track/car experience destinations

    hey guys, i run a credit card and travel hack/trip blog. unlike similar blogs where when you click on cars and get a bunch of info about rental cars, i want mine to be all sorts of cool car experiences around the world and what you can actually get on.

    i'm looking for examples of places to go and do these experiences. for example, cool kart places; not so much the smaller indoor type, but for larger more destination worthy karting experiences. for example somewhere that one can rent rotax karts, or somewhere that has a larger big deal kart track. in either case, tracks someone can actually get on.

    i'm doing dirtfish rally school later this month, so that is another example. i found another rally school in france, once that will accept hilton points to reserve an experience. another would be race tracks, although ideally ones i can actually get on. i'd like to try out a track or two in japan for example, although it seems questionable if this is even possible to do. the nurburgring of course is another example.

    i recently got back from abu dhabi, where i only had enough time to explore maybe 1/3 the stuff you can do up there. this included driving a formula 3000 car on an f1 track.

    my blog is at I Go By Plane
    car stuff i've written and published thus far is at Cars | I Go By Plane
    and my bucket list is at Bucket List | I Go By Plane

    i'm looking for more cool ideas, particularly cool car things, that i can add to my bucket list. would appreciate any advice or ideas. thanks!

    i've added quite a bit of good stuff to this.

    i've also found F1 to be prohibitively (ridiculously) expensive.
    baja looks really fun too - also quite expensive though.

    i also think yas marina has some of the best and most reasonably priced programs, and abu dhabi and destinations within day trips may actually be where you can get in the most car and karting experiences of anywhere in the world.

    Monticello Motor Club in NY. It is a private club, but I think you can pay to drive Radicals and karts. It's definitely worth looking into. My buddy is a karting instructor there.

    thanks for the suggestion - seems similar to the autobahn country club by chicago in joliet, il. cool experiences although cost prohibitive to me.

    there are a lot of really cool experiences i have kept off because of budget - if anyone is looking and spendier than i, a lot of cool F1 experiences out there as well as baja experiences!

    Watching Suzuki Swift on race tracks is really amazing, As compared with other rides Suzuki bikes are good but as with their cars they are neither reliable nor efficient as compared with other mega cars and suv's
