Reno Grand Prix was held on a 1.27-mile temporary street circuit set up in the parking lot of the Reno Hilton, Reno, NV. It was used by SCCA Pro Racing for TransAm, World Challenge and supporting races in 1996 and 1997. This page was contributed by Guy Watney, Kansas City Region SCCA.
Although it was short, convoluted and lined by concrete barriers, the track was not as 'mickey mouse' as most parking-lot courses. An interesting feature was that the cars raced through the porte-cochère of the hotel. The track was popular with the corner-workers since, at the end of the day, they could walk from their turns straight into the air-conditioned hotel bar. What the regular hotel patrons thought of this influx of hot and sweaty bodies dressed in dirty whites is not recorded.
