HMRC Veterans Celebration Day

Hallett Motor Racing Circuit (HMRC) recognizes the need to thank, inspire, and support our veterans. To fulfill those ends, HMRC is devoting a specific day to honor them: the HMRC Veterans Celebration Day! Scheduled for November 13th, 2021, and lasting from 9AM to 5PM, the HMRC Veterans Celebration Day will feature free high speed rides around the track in sports cars for veterans and a car show with all types of cars and trucks. All veterans, active duty military personnel, and guests wishing to support veterans are invited: veterans attend for free (with proof of service) and guests can attend for a nominal entrance fee.

To offer something that will interest every attendee, the HMRC Veterans Celebration Day will feature:

  • Free high speed ride alongs for veterans
  • Car show with specific classes and awards
  • Delicious food at HMRC’s on own restaurant: the Finish Line Café
  • The best in local food trucks
  • Parade laps for all
  • Raffled rides with championship winning professional race driver
  • Vendor booths supporting the veteran community (depending on sponsorships)
