Palm Beach Intl Raceway is located at: 17047 Beeline Hwy, Jupiter, FL 33478 

Enter through the racetrack’s main gate and reference ‘Xtreme Xperience’ as you pass through Security. Due to a major karting event, attendees are spread amongst the foregrounds. Please SLOWLY make your way toward the Road Course and be mindful of low vehicles.

We ask that you arrive at the scheduled time listed on your confirmation email. This will allow you to have ample amount of time to get checked in prior to your driver’s meeting.

Once you enter through main gate, continue down until you see the first main lot. From here you will see signage that will direct you to the appropriate parking lot. See Map below for designated parking areas.

Spectator viewing is FREE beyond the check in and registration in the designated areas (see map below). If any non-participating guests would like to get behind the registration area and into the drivers’ waiting stage or VIP area located in the pits, you must purchase a VIP Pit Pass ($10 ea). Consult the map below for designated viewing areas. 

You can purchase a VIP Pit Pass online, or at Check In/Registration. Click HERE.

The classroom will be located indoor “chalet” near the registration/check in area. Please note, this room is meant for driving participants, and is an essential part of the Xperience. Pit Pass holders are allowed to join the drivers, however space maybe limited.
All participants are required to wear closed toed shoes and pants. Helmets and head socks will be provided to all participants once they are in the pit area.
PBIR does have concessions, however they may not be open at all hours during your visit. Please ask a track representative for more information.

We are a rain or shine experience so on average, our experiences are not postponed and refunds are not provided due to inclement weather (as long as track conditions remain safe). A day-of reschedule request is a $100 fee, unless we have postponed. 

If we postpone an event you will be alerted via Email and we have up to 12 months to provide a reschedule date at a track location close to you. Please visit our FAQ for more information on postponements or cancellations.

Turn-by-Turn Guide of PBIR

Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR), formerly known as Moroso, is home to a fast 2 mile road course, a drag strip, karting facilities, and more. The track has been featured on such shows as Top Gear and Pinks, and has hosted many types of events in its long running history. The 2 mile road course is not particularly hard to get around, but to do so very quickly takes some practice, lots of patients, and stacks of rubber.

PBIR has an enormous back straight, several long carousel like turns, and a short esses section that combine to make up most of the track. This is a great place to showcase each car’s ability, but more importantly develop some life long skills.

  • Let’s start with Turn 4, the first carousel you get to. A carousel is usually a long turn that is circular in shape, but is longer than a hairpin turn, and often times wider than 180 degrees. These types of turns require a lot of patients. You need to wait on your turn-in, and wait on your throttle to achieve optimal corner exit speed. The same will apply to Turn 5 that immediately follows.
  • After the carousel’s, you approach the esses, or a series of quick turns, back-to-back. They generally make the shape of an “S” when looking at them on a track map. Many racetracks have a version of esses, done differently, and the tricky part of this section at PBIR is the first turn, Turn 6.
  • While the first right hander you approach may look like you can carry a lot of speed through it, you need to have your eyes up looking at your track out, which also happens to be the apex of the left hander, Turn 7. A lot of drivers can easily get caught going too quickly through Turn 6, causing them to run wide on their track out. This is also an issue for drivers who turn-in too early. Even if you get the first part of this section down, there is still more. After you apex left on Turn 7, quick drivers will find themselves having to apply the brake before they turn-in for Turn 8. This is important for everyone who wants to get a good run onto the long back straight, as mentioned earlier.

  • The back straight here at PBIR might make a Miata driver yawn; despite having their foot to the floor as they make their way down the 3,100 ft long straight. Since you will most likely be in a 500+hp supercar with Xtreme, this straightaway comes and goes by FAST! Getting a good run onto the straight starts in the esses, and relies on the driver maximizing the width of the track. Once you have hit speeds sufficient to get you arrested on any highway in the US, you notice the brake markers telling you to maximize the G-load forward. Following this aggressive brake zone, once again we have a carousel, and then we head back down the front straight to your next lap.
  • Like most tracks, PBIR rewards its drivers who are patient and focused on what’s ahead. Avoid the early turn-ins, don’t get in the throttle too soon, and keep those eyes up. Finding your brake zone or locating your apex and track-out here sometimes requires you to look way down track. Drivers who excel in these areas will get the most out of this track.
