Season passes are on sale now providing access to all four major spectator events happening at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this summer. While anticipation builds for the season-opening Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio in June, fans purchasing a 2017 Mid-Ohio VIP Race Pass may also attend numerous club events typically not open to the public happening almost every weekend now through fall at the 2.4-mile, 15-turn permanent road course in Lexington, Ohio.
