A look back, and sometimes forward, on the sport of racing

The Salt Lake City metro area is a booming environment for business. Every month, new companies are moving here or starting up. The term “Silicon Slopes” has been coined to refer to the area, which is now home to a cluster of information technology, software development, hardware manufacturing and research firms along the Wasatch Front. Among the big names in the technology industries are companies such as SanDisk and the Intel/Micron joint venture IM Flash Technologies, video game software development companies EA Sports and data analysis software including Adobe Systems.

These are very competitive businesses and industries, and they seek out the best and brightest employees to enhance their strength. However, to attract the top employees, a company must provide the best atmosphere and benefits. One of the ways they do this is to create corporate events for their employees, prospects and customers that are fun and memorable.

Utah Motorsports Campus (UMC) specializes in creating special Salt Lake City corporate events for groups ranging from 10 to 10,000, utilizing a variety of exhilarating interactive experiences, catering designed to match your budget, a selection of different-sized meeting or hospitality spaces and exclusive custom touches that are only limited by your imagination.

UMC is a state-of-the-art, 511-acre facility located in Grantsville, a convenient 30-minute drive from the Salt Lake City metro, situated between the Oquirrh and Stansbury Mountains just south of the Great Salt Lake in Tooele County. If you are planning a Salt Lake City corporate event of any type – a banquet, meeting, conference, or just a fun day out – we have a team of experienced event planners who can create an outing that your guests will enjoy and remember for years to come.

 

Group Karting

Many of the Salt Lake City corporate events we create include our Group Karting program. The UMC Kart Center has a dedicated, state-of-the-art go-kart track and a new fleet of go-karts that will achieve speeds up to 50 mph. This is a perfect platform for team-building, nurturing business relationships or rewarding employees. We have a variety of options to choose from to fit your group’s individual requirements. It’s like we always say: You never really know your friends or colleagues until you trade a little paint with them on the kart track!

Group Off-Roading

If your group is into off-roading, our UMC Kart Center recently acquired a group of Polaris Ace 570 ATVs that are available for group off-road experiences. These are remarkably capable off-road machines, and can be used to create a very unique Salt Lake City corporate event. Our off-road experiences take place on UMC’s Off Road Short Course, the same one used by the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. 

Group Sim Races

Less physical, but still very engaging mentally, is one of our newest additions at UMC, Group Sim Races. The UMC Kart Center has installed a bank of four state-of-the-art racing simulators. These are Sim Experience machines utilizing iRacing full-motion software, and each unit includes three 50-inch screens. These are the most advanced racing simulators available to the public in North America, and identical to the units used for training by professional racing drivers. Let us enhance your Salt Lake City corporate event by pitting your guests against each other for a thrilling virtual racing experience!

Meetings and Banquets

UMC offers a selection of meeting spaces suitable to accommodate groups of all sizes for your Salt Lake City corporate event. Our meeting spaces range from classrooms and hospitality suites to our Legends Hall banquet facility, and we can offer full audio-visual support, WiFi and catering. Over the years we have hosted meetings, sales rallies, conferences, product launches and even weddings and reunions. If you can imagine it, we can create it. 

Catering

No matter where you go, a successful Salt Lake City corporate event can succeed or fail based on the quality of the food service. Our professional food service team offers a menu to fit any budget, ranging from casual hot dogs and hamburgers to elegant pre-plated dinners with china and linens. We also offer beer and full alcohol services, as well as audio-visual support and WiFi.

Group Ticket Options 

UMC is, first and foremost, a racetrack. We host some of the most exciting racing events in the western United States, including sports cars, motorcycles, karts and off-road racing. Provide your clients and/or employees with the ultimate in race weekend luxury with tickets to one of our racing events.
