The New Hampshire Motor Speedway Driving Experience

The New Hampshire Motor Speedway is located in Loudon, New Hampshire, about an hour north of Boston. The SCDA has been hosting high performance track events at NHMS for over a decade. This unique facility is a 1.6 mile road course that utilizes both permanent road course, as well as NASCAR Sprint Cup Oval sections. Furthermore, there are some dramatic elevation changes that keep drivers of all ability levels on their toes. The facilities at NHMS are first rate, and the track surface is smooth as glass. Please remember to check out our new in-car video clip from a hot lap of NHMS on our video page.

Safety Information

Dress Code

Long sleeves and long pants are suggested at all tracks. Open-toe shoes are not allowed. Drivers of competition cars are encouraged to wear fire-suits.

SCDA Convertible Policy

For safety reasons, all convertibles (Boxster, Miata, Corvette, BMW Z4, Honda S2000, Pontiac Solstice etc.) are required to have a roll bar that meets the following two criteria in order to be eligible to run during any event.

  1. The roll bar must be in the fixed position and visible at all times. This means that roll bars which are designed to automatically deploy are not acceptable unless they are in the full upright and locked position at all times.
  2. The roll bar must allow the driver to pass the “broomstick” test which means that the top of the drivers helmet must be below the line from the top of the roll bar to the top of the windshield.

There are aftermarket roll bars and/or seats which can be used to help meet these requirements. If your convertible meets these standards, then you are welcome to participate!

Factory hard tops ARE acceptable at SCDA events.

  • If the Driver is a registered SCDA Instructor or Coach
