Stay in a turn of the century (20th) 5-star hotel, take a sunset dinner boat ride, drive interesting back roads, visit an engine and transmission plant, go to a casino, sightsee in picturesque small towns of the Midwest, tour the US Air Force’s Museum…and that’s just on the first few days of the 2013 MiM Race Tour.  The MiM Grand Am Tour follows in the footsteps of the Lime Rock, Mosport and Sebring Race Tours, combining the fun of touring with the excitement of racing by taking participants on an interesting and enjoyable road tour and ending with 2 days at a major race, in this case the Grand Am and Continental races at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.


Leaving the National Corvette Museum on Monday, June 10th, the tour proceeds north and visits the French Lick area of Indiana, spending two nights at the West Baden Springs Inn.  Continuing eastward on the third day, with a stop in Nashville Indiana, the group checks in for 2 nights in Dayton Ohio to allow a full day for touring the National Museum of the USAF including the hanger with planes designated Air Force 1 over the years. 

The participants resume their eastern travels over the scenic back roads arriving at the Mid-Ohio racetrack in Lexington, OH.  Over a 2 day period Tour members will be in the Corvette Corral and view the Continental and Grand Am races.  In addition to regular Corral activities, MiM participants will be treated to private tours of various team garages including the Corvette based DP cars, enter private drawings for a chance to ride in a Pace Car and visit the Hot Pits during a race, separate from the general corral activities. 

The inclusive Tour member price is $1899 per car with 6 nights hotel, Lake Patoka dinner cruise, lunch on Monday, corral tickets and a close out pizza party Saturday night.
