I would like to chance to run it.

Wonder if it would be worth while to ask for one last weekend.... Now I meet the requirements to ride there.... but I was too late.

check your PMs

I too loved that track best track for a mini the CMRA ran I liked it on the F3 as well.

By far the best to take pictures at lots of great spots and the only other track that would slow you down and make you work that much was Hallet.

To name a few . . .






Just completed the CMRA school at Harris Hill Rd (H2R), yesterday. Our instructor, Jim said that Oak Hill is no more . . . that the owners sold it to TXU because there was "coal in dem dar hills".

Say it isn't so . . .

That track is a CHAMPION MAKER . . . Nicky H, Ben S have all said that if you can go fast there, you can go fast ANYWHERE!

After doing a track day there, last year on my motard, I believe it.

Anyone confirmed this?

This is true.

That's been on the table for months, and it's very, very unlikely.

I called Darryl months ago to ask about riding it one more time and never got a call back.

Sad to read, that was a cool place. If you ever went and checked out the names of the racers that held the lap records it was pretty cool.

I ate it pretty good out of the school house but would have loved to go back!
