No you see those little plastic yellow thingy's those will keep people from hitting the embankment! And those little markers with the numbers tell you when to stop on the front straight... no need for run-off.... i mean come on this track is way safe.......

What ubber fukkhead built this thing ? Those bridges seem to be a horrible design.... Notice how there isn't just grass at the embankment it is metal over concrete.... they want to make sure they don't let anyone hurt the grass

Those air walls work. Hay bails..........not so much.

Airfence sucks to hit if you go under it. Femur snapping action!

Man, what about all the safety BS they've been spouting? WTF? I wonder if Mladin will refuse to race there....

I don't know man that looks pretty scary and I haven't even ridden on that track... no run off at all at the end of the straight in the third picture... blow it there and yikes

I hear you Tom, what happened to all the safety they have been spouting?

At least Laguna Seca got it right. How come they did not follow this design? Unless it is for autos and not just foot traffic.

Yeah, not to menition that the above is not in a turn/ curve unlike the Joysee folks built.

I'm really curious to see if any of the top riders will refuse to race there or make very public comments about it's safety. I think ima call my AMA insider friend and see what they think of all this...
