Can we run the track backwards?? The turns are sharper in reverse and would suit supermoto better... Also can we get crazy and use dirt on both the north and south ends of the track so we can cut out parts of the long straights on the east and west side?

Ok just got off the phone with the owner. The track has drainage all over. So he is asking that the drawings for now concentrate on the back side inner field. He wants the last part of the dirt section to come back onto the first part of the straight so tires will be scrubbed before the left sweeper turn on the back straight. Understandable..

No I am taking clockwise. At the south end of the track it looks like the turns would be tighter going into them in this direction

Ok I see it now I was looking at the big photo not the sketch...The track has more room to scrub speed and back it in going clockwise. We do not need the run off like carts do coming out of the corners we need the run off going into the corners so you can back it in and scrub speed out there. If you look you can also see that the turns are sharper going this direction.

OK, I think mike should design the track his self, cut out both of the longest straights is a great idea. It would be better to have two dirt sections instead of just one.

Great Job Wes!! Sounds like this has the makings to be a very good start for Supermoto in Houston!

Any time that I am in town I am willing to help work on the track, and will be able to ride.

I would be interested in riding on August 16th, regardless of how far along the dirt section was.
