Fan Tips

Welcome to Southern Ontario Motor Speedway (SOMS)!  We are excited to welcome you to our facility.  Some tips that might help you with your visit:

Cash Only At This Time

During our transition to new ownership, our track is cash only.  We are working to get our debit/credit options up and running as soon as possible.

When Should I Arrive?

Early arrival allows for best seating selection.  We recommend about 20 minutes before event start time.  That said, many fans arrive throughout the heat race qualifying races that build towards the feature events.  Arrive at anytime during the event to see some awesome racing!

How long are the events?

Most race events run about 3 hours long, including heat races.  Some events will run longer or shorter depending on unpredictable on-track events.

Hats & Sunglasses

While the sun is up, having hats and sunglasses may be helpful in getting the best view of the races.

Seating

SOMS has a variety of seating options from small wooden grandstands to our larger main grandstand.  Some fans like bringing seat cushions for a more comfortable seating option.  Some fans have brought lawn chairs as there are some limited areas for lawn chair seating towards turn four.

Hearing Protection Recommended

Some fans recommend wearing hearing protection: ear plugs or other hearing protection may improve your enjoyment of the event.

Food is Available!

Our food concession is up and running for your convenience.  Come on down just past the main entrance for great food options and beverages throughout the night.

Zoom In!

You may wish to bring binoculars to get an even more up-close view of the action.

Parking

Plenty of free parking is available on-site.
