  Hard compressed sand which has allowed generations spectacular car races at the beach, has created the historical reputation of Daytona as a mecca for motor sports.

The Beach:

  Daytona Beach is known as the ‘World’s Most Famous Beach’ - a 500 feet (at low tide) wide and more than 23 miles long beach with fine sand which was perfect for car races in the past. Today it’s still allowed - in designated areas - to everyone to take a ride on the beach with a car. After paying a small fee, everybody will be able to understand the feelings of the historical race driver - but now with a maximum speed limit of 10 miles/hour.
