The MINI Hospitality Patio is located along pit road, at the exit end. The patio name is confusing, but that is the term that Daytona uses to describe these enhanced viewing spots. They are right behind the pit wall, giving a view of the front straight and the braking area to the turn into the infield. They are steel framed structures with an enclosed area on the ground level and elevated seating above. The Hospitality tickets will include reserved parking in the MINI Corral, infield passes, and garage passes (you have to go through the garages to get to the patio).

Daytona Rolex 24 Hour Facilities graphic above. The MINI Corral will be right along US 92, behind the grandstands, just below the round orange Lot 1 marker in the graphic. We are located next to the Lamborghini Car Corral. The Hospitality Patio is along pit road near the red circle with SI in the graphic.

This will be a much upscale experience at the races.

How do we get this event on the list of Sunshine MINI Regional Events?
