Our new and improved yearly Month of Money tours, including New York City and the Knoxville Nationals, leave Australia in early July of each year. 

A parallel shortened tour is also conducted which commences in Dayton, Ohio on Day 16 of the Full Tour. 

Both tours now include two nights at Pevely, Missouri for the IRONMAN 55 at Federated Parts Raceway and the best part of three days exploring the old Route 66 sights as we follow it south through Illinois.

The Full Tour also now includes attendance at the Brad Doty Classic as your first event, plus Eldora Speedway for the second running of the NASCAR Camping World Trucks dirt track race on Day 16. If you want to see the Trucks at Eldora, but can only afford the time to do the Short Tour, then we can accommodate that too.

Global Speedway Tours Australia is run by speedway people who like what you like ...

Australian owned and operated with Aussie Tour guides all the way.

This website will always have all the details you would want to know about touring the USA for racing across this vast country. Plus where possible, we build in icon events from other auto racing categories.  

Our sprintcar & midget tours will often be piggybacked on another major event ocurring in the USA. For example recent and current tours include the Indy 500 in May and the Daytona 500 Speedweek in Florida through February.

If you want to read the daily Blogs as they were posted each day from our tours, then grab a coffee or a beer and click here.  It may take a while!  The 2011 Indy 500 and Indiana Midget week, the 2012 & 2014 Daytona Speedweek plus the 2012 & 2013 Month of Money blogs are there for you to enjoy. 

We are now offering the Daytona Speedweek tour in Feb 2016 and the Indy 500 and Illinois & Indiana midget weeks tour in May of 2015. Not to forget the flagship 2014 Month of Money tour(s).  We want to do all of them, but it will depend on confirmed numbers.  A minimum of 10 tour members with deposits paid will also trigger the 2015 Indy 500 tour when we reach that number. 

Please let us know by clicking here which tour you have an interest in.  The 2016 tour to the Daytona 500 speedweek and associated World of Outlaw sprintcar and Late Model races will be for 21 days, with three nights in San Francisco and two nights in Key West, plus substantially upgraded Atlantic oceanfront accommodation on Daytona Beach.  Check out the link below for the Florida Speedweek itinerary.  

Unless something dramatic happens to the value of the Oz dollar, or the US economy, our tours will always remain very affordable.  

For the speedway purist there is always plenty of dirt track action on either side of the Indy or Daytona 500's.  Plus sightseeing galore, particularly on the Florida Speedweek Tour. 

 

  

The "Knoxville Nationals, New York City and lots more" tour is always open for bookings for 2014 and beyond. 

We have thought very carefully about our tour schedules and we will be travelling each year for the deluxe Month of Money tour, incorporating the Knoxville Nationals and we will also offer our Florida Speedweek tour and the Indy 500 / dual Midget weeks trip subject to minimum numbers being confirmed as described above. 

Yes the Month of Money Tour is always available to book at any time.   We invite you to review every last highly organised and detailed bit of both tours.  There are two to choose from ...Robby Wolfgang at Knoxville: Pete Richards photo

The first is the absolute ultimate for dedicated race fans, particularly if you like sprintcars.  Not only will you experience the Annual Knoxville Nationals at the sprintcar capital of the world in Iowa, you will also see, in a tour that is across 35 days, (if you wanted your holiday to be that long), the World of Outlaws at the Brad Doty Classic in Lima, Ohio, the Kings Royal at Eldora (2 nights), the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove (2 nights), the Don Martin Silver Cup at Lernerville and the 2 night Ironman 55 in Pevely, Missouri.   

Plus you'll see the NASCAR Brickyard 400 at the famed Indianapolis Speedway, followed at night by the fabulous Kokomo Speedway where the 410 non winged sprintcars unleash all their fury on the bullring.  

In addition we will see USAC's non winged sprintcars in Indiana Sprintweek at Lawrenceburg, the enormous Oskaloosa party races and a whole lot more. Two nights and three days in the best city in the world - New York, two nights in Chicago, retracing the old Route 66 through Illinois, two nights in St Louis and maybe even a day at the fabulous Iowa State Fair. Plus non winged sprints at Gas City, Putnamville and Kokomo in Indiana.

There are 25 included nights of racing in the Full Tour timeframe. 

The tours are offered in two components. The full 35 days across America watching the best in the world, or 20 nights starting from Dayton, Ohio on day 16 of the Full Tour.  

We have put together what we think is a doozy of a schedule. The ultimate itinerary for you. We believe the pricing is as attractive as we can make it, considering the host of inclusions which are built in as part of the deal. Plus the NASCAR Trucks on dirt at Eldora. 

Such as all return flights ex Sydney, all accomodation in high quality Hotels (check out the links in the itinerary) and all race tickets will be included as per previous Global Speedway Tours trips and you will be driven to every scheduled race and event using our own transport. No self driving of rental cars is required. 

Check out the links and pages throughout this website for all the reasons why you should consider touring with us, then review the inclusions, and of course study the itinerary of all the places and tracks you have only dreamed about seeing racing at one day.

Naturally the final schedules will be determined by announcements from tracks and sanctioning bodies in the USA as to exact dates for their events, but we're confident we have got it 99% covered. The many value added inclusions make these tours highly sought after by our fellow speedway fans around the Globe.

We've been a bit quiet since coming back from Florida. The movie clip below is from the 1941 film Buck Privates with Abbott & Costello. This 8 minute clip is all about the craze that was Midget car racing in the USA at that time. I reckon you'll enjoy it. But the message here is that the Mighty Midgets have regained their rightful standing in speedway racing. The Chili Bowl Nationals prove that every year. If you'd like to be in Tulsa in January 2015, keep an eye on this FB page and the Global Speedway Tours website next Thursday.

BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME gets the Castle Films treatment, and makes for a fast paced little short. Enjoy!

Joe Madsen. You should be very proud of your boys. They have really excelled in a tough sport. 2014 should be a breakout year for both.

Testimonials

We loved the "no self driving" aspect of the trip which allowed us plenty of time to see the surrounding countryside and sights. Cannot fault any of the services provided by our two great tour guides who made us really fit in ... nothing was ever a bother to them.

Would recommend Global Speedway Tours to anybody ... in fact we already have.

Marilyn and I were very pleased with the trip. As a race fan and a petrol head, I wanted to see the race tracks in the USA.  Just to be in the crowd and experience the atmosphere of the Indy 500 was my highlight.
