Individual & corporate experiences
Driveway Austin was conceived and designed by Bill Dollahite, a professional race driver with over 25 years of world class racing experience (notably as very successful driver and race director with Ferrari and as a DOD sanctioned tactical trainer). Bill created Driveway Austin's famous track by combining some of the most interesting and challenging racing corners from the around the world to create an unparalleled training circuits in Austin, Texas.
The location and strategic configurations have made Driveway Austin a top choice for major vehicle manufacturers for development testing, media sessions and launch (Ride and Drive) activities.
The course has 3 main configurations with different dynamic elements.
L1 (Short Course, modeled after Fiorano in Italy)) focuses on flat surface vehicle dynamics,
L2 (Elevation Course, modeled after the Laguna Seca Corkscrew in California)) highlights elevation change and off-camber
L3 (Grand Prix Course modeled after the Nurburgring in Germany) showcases high-speed dynamics with a long straightway and signature turns.
More than just the layout design, the course was engineered from far beneath the surface with deep compacted and chosen soils, a premium grade of base material and an exotic asphalt design that is extremely smooth with exceptional grip. It took over a year to layout, prepare the elevations and soils, cure the base and compress the surface. Driveway Austin is truly a work of art in racetrack engineering and design.
