Welcome home to Ohio Valley Region

We have a place for every motor sports enthusiast - from timed precision driving events through pylons, to wheel-to-wheel hard-core racing competition, to working track side, or even the administration of our many activities - OVR offers you many different opportunities to fulfill your need for Speed!

How do I get started?

Do you want to become a road racer? Do you think you want to become a professional race car driver? Are you just looking for a weekend activity that's inexpensive that will let you run your "daily driver" in competition, but with relatively little wear and tear on the car?

September Special Socializer
On September 24th we have a special opportunity to visit theOSU Center for Automotive Research (OSU/CAR). The facility is at 930 Kinnear Rd, just west of S.R. 315.  CAR is the home of the Buckeye Bullet landspeed record machine, the OSU Formula SAE team, and a number of otherinteresting high-tech projects.  Toaccommodate their schedule, we will meet there for a tour at 6:00p.  Following the tour we will move a couplehundred yards east on Kinnear to Champps to enjoy adult beverages and BS.  I plan to pick up the bar tab for one luckyindividual, so indulge (responsibly). Oh, yeah - you won’t know who’s getting a free ride until we break up.
