I have some simple questions:

What direction does the track owner run the track? Will we have to design it to be safe for cars/bikes running both directions?

Is there a standard buffer/run off distance for cars/bikes? I'd hate to be involved in turning someone's miata into the General Lee.

What areas of the track are we not allowed to bring dirt onto the track? I would assume we are not allowed to drag dirt into any of the corners. Is that a safe assumption?

Cliff, GSS alternates it's direction monthly

We want to keep berms and jumps out of runoff areas. Some dirt will inevitably be brought back onto the track. We want to minimize it as much as possible. Those areas will have to be swept before the cars enter the track
