Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Alabama
Barber Motorsports Park is an 880-acre, multi-purpose racing facility located on the eastern fringes of Birmingham, Alabama. It was built by George Barber and includes the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum, which is considered the “World’s Largest Motorcycle Museum” by the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Park, which opened in 2003, features a 17-turn, 2.38-mile road course that was designed by Alan Wilson and is viewable from several naturally wooded or grass-covered banks. The track is designed to be run clockwise, and the layout is compact with a number of elevation changes. Pit lane is on the outside of the track, parallel to the front stretch, and the pit wall is on the riders’ left. Two cutoff turns, which are barricaded when not in use, allow the track to be shortened for club events or testing sessions. An entryway between Turns 8 and 9 provides access to the museum garages. A tunnel underneath the track at Turn 12 allows emergency and maintenance vehicles access to the infield area.
The track is unusual in having no general-access spectator seating at the start/finish line. The area outside of the front straightaway, bounded by the track on three sides, is occupied by the multi-level Paddock Building. Barber is noted for its landscaping and greenery, and the track has been referred to as “The Augusta National of Motorsports.”
