Self guided, ten minute walk about gives new appreciation for early car testing and racing. Must have been something in the age before pavement. Sand was perfect for car racing.

Look in the windows of the garage and there are two old cars that actually raced on the beach here. Small park, but nice and clean, easy parking on the beach access ramp. When we were there, we were the only ones in park.

If you can catch this open, it is a wonderful exhibit of the first race ever....right here on Ormond Beach. Replicas of the first two racecars are on site and many pictures and information are available!
