Cresson 3/5 Roll Call

I am in for a full day of riding on the big track. I am pretty excited! I have not been to Cresson in a couple of years and have yet to see the new setup in person.

How does Cresson compare to the "fast" track (TWS (Texas World Speedway)) or the "technical" track (OHR)?

I'd like to hear the positive and negative aspects of this location.

I liked it last time i rode it. Good traction, elevation changes and plenty of technical stuff.

I am just the opposite I didn't like the old to the new. That turn felt weird to me.

The 8 hour drive from corpus sucked soooo bad I would rather not thing about it. I just can't believe no one has built a track around SA yet.

I did the new portion last year in March at the first trackday there... the new section is just badass. The elevation changes were ridiculous... those first 2 downhill lefthanders are just awesome.
