Hutchinson Island Circuit
1.965 mile road course in the Savannah River directly across from Savannah's
riverwalk. It was put together in 1999 (or thereabouts) from access roads
around the new Westin Hotel, golf course, and Convention Center. This
track was used just once, for an Indy Lights race - which lost a ton of money,
which is probably why it's never been used since.
The Grand Prize Races
The Savannah Grand Prize Races were run on a network of fairly rural streets
and roads south and east of what was in the early 1900's the city of Savannah.
The original circuit, used for the 1908 American Grand Prize, was 25 miles
long and prepared using convict labour.
The city has grown quite extensively since then, and has incorporated most of
the area incorporating the various iterations of the Grand Prize course
within the city limits. Part of the track is in a separate town named
"Thunderbolt" that was incorporated quite a while after the last Grand Prize
was run, but with a little effort, the original track configurations
can still be followed on the modern (and now paved!) streets and roads of
Savannah and Thunderbolt.
A one mile dirt oval was used once on the 23rd February 1904.
