Circuit Tracks With Greatest Elevation Change

Palmer Motorsports Park Twisting Through Mountain

Circuit tracks such as Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Road Atlanta were made famous by their multi-story drops however there are many other loops of tarmac in the United States that you can drive on any given weekend that have the same or more elevation change.

Surprisingly, Summit Point in West Virginia was a total standout in this game, boasting 400 feet of total elevation change.  This figure sounds a little high to me but it’s documented on their site so that’s what we’ll honor.  We now present a list of the race tracks and circuit tracks in the United States with the greatest amount of total elevation change.

  1. Summit Point Main has ~40′ of elevation change. The 400′ of change stated on their track information page is likely a typographical error.

  2. This list should include worldwide tracks. Mt Panorama at Bathurst, NSW Australia tops all of these with its 571 feet of elevation change.
