Race fans visiting New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 Week activities will find it easier to navigate around the 1,100-acre complex with the introduction of a new Disney-like tram system.
The tram system, similar to that offered to visitors at Walt Disney World, will move guests from the parking and camping lots to grandstand area, providing a more efficient route to and from the races.
This system, which features 10 trams and a designated route around New Hampshire Motor Speedway property, is being implemented as the initial step in New Hampshire Motor Speedway's efforts to place ‘Fans First', according to speedway executive vice president and general manager Jerry Gappens.
"It is our goal to provide our fans with the best possible experience when they visit New Hampshire Motor Speedway," said Gappens. "We have taken a page from our other Speedway Motorsports facilities and Disney, in implementing this new tram system here for our guests. It is important that our guests be able to get from their cars or RVs to the grandstand area quickly and comfortably. Our fans will have the choice to ‘trek or tram'."
Manufactured in Iowa by Featherlite, and sponsored by Nationwide, the five tandem trams seat 65 guests each, and will run continuously throughout the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 event weekend, starting on Friday, June 27. The trams will follow three different routes, which will service almost every corner of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway property. It is estimated that over 20,000 fans will be shuttled in the trams each day.
In addition, more than 60 buses will be used to shuttle fans from outer parking areas as well.
