​​This newly-refurbed hotel is so close to the track that it seems almost silly not just to drive your kart there when you’re done. The extended stay suites are fresh and contemporary with ice-white, spa-like bathrooms, designer light fittings and sleek wooden workstations – for when the trip is about business as much as pleasure. If you’re travelling with a group, it’s ideal, as the hotel hosts weekday evening socials –and there’s a pool for a post-race cool-off.

With its white-painted balcony railings and grey clapboard-clad exterior, the Residence Tewksbury could pass for a New England boating club. You might find a sail or two at the American Textile History Museum – a short drive away – but really you’re here for the modern, welcoming suites, decked with lashings of dark woods, pops of teal and sleek mid-century furniture. After thrashing your friends at the track, make sure you’re in pole position for the waffles at breakfast.
