Radford Rides


Radford Rides is a quarterly experience designed to celebrate the automotive culture, its vehicles and the enthusiasts who share a passion for performance driving.

Every Radford Ride is injected with unique scenic day drives, activities of automotive interest and hand-selected dining experiences. You’ll gain access to private auto collections, as well as network and relationship-build with other enthusiasts from around the world. Radford Rides are just the beginning of our mission to fuel the automotive lifestyle.

Each ride begins the night before at the Radford Racing School for an exclusive catered dinner and cocktail hour in our state-of-the-art event center. The next morning, the group hits the track for some time in the Dodge Hellcats led by our world renowned driving instructors before taking it to the streets.

Each ride is preceded with light refreshments and followed with a gourmet lunch destination. The ride itself will be approximately 1.5 to 3 hours of drive time. Please take a minute to browse our FAQs to learn how you can be a part of our next Radford Rides experience!
