The RoadXNigeria Car racing track is open now at Evbuobanosa, KM32 Benin-Asaba Highway. The 2.5km long track follows the best tradition of car racing tracks worldwide and has something for every racing enthusiast. Currently setup for dirt racing, there is an active E30 (BMW 3 Series) racing event going on with weekend qualifiers and monthly shootouts.
The current leaderboard is available at http://roadxnigeria.com/roadx/lap-times/
Car racing enthusiasts have been homing into the track from all across Nigeria and giving it their best attempt. With all the kilometres travelled and petrol burnt, the current leaderboard is topped by a local boy, Jerry Omigie, who is set to win the N100,000 monthly prize if he holds off challengers by the end of the month.
I am in the market for an E30 after just 4 laps of the track! That is how good it is and actually driving around a race track in Nigeria is a priceless feeling.
The best way to spend a weekend is to arrive at the track early with your mates, carry along a cooler filled with drinks, drive and show who is king then kick back and relax. The swim back at the hotel will even feel much much better and if you are into pastries, have some freshly baked ones post race to even things out.
