OHR video

I made this last year before the season opener. Gives you a good Idea of the lay out for those who have not been there and are hopeing to race the CMRA opener. Watch and learn...........

http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...hortwsound.flv

The blind uphill between T3&4 is tough, find a tree inthe distance to look at as you crest the hill. T8 is critical as it leads to the front straight. T1&2 are also huge in terms of winning or loosing. Be sure to take a look OFF the track in one or two of your early sessions and familiarize yourself with what is off the track incase you need to go there. If it is your 1st time at the hill you WILL run off somewhere if you are trying for race pace. There is VERY LITTLE run off area before you get to trees, ditches, etc. Sort of like raciing on a double wide drive way with lousy pavement. Good luck to all, and be safe!!

Yes VERY bumpy. And if you are following someone, expect to be pelted with stones and small rocks. Take a spare face sheild. That is Tim Chason's first time at the hill and that is him that goes off. The rider that came around the outside was Jeff Grant, and the inside guy was either Ronnie Hay or Brandon from Motorcycles Unlimited

That's almost poetic, Tom! I absolutely agree with you... count me as one of those who loves Oak Hill. I have memories of some incredibly intense racing at that track. Heading into turn two on the first lap of a C-Superstock Expert race will seriously get your attention!

Despite the bumps, traction is actually pretty good. Everyone should try it at least once.
Well put VFR..... There was an article a while ago, can't remember where or when, but a common thread among all the top guys who started in CMRA. They all LOVE Oakhill. When asked why so many fast guys come out of Texas, Schwantz said" if you can go fast at Oakhill, you can go fast anywhere inthe world." .....or something to that effect. That track is indeed hallowed ground, and a true rite of passage. Everyone should ride it at least twice, don't base your judgement on your first time out there. Technical, tight, and fun!!! Racing there is another story.........


I found the version with sound track......dig that '80 techno beat.
