Anyone going to NOLA this year

I've moved to Mobile, so now my only two options are NOLA and Barber for track days. Is Sportbike Track Time the only org that does NOLA?

I'm thinking about hitting the one up in May this year. I see that track time at NOLA is a lot more expensive than MSRH or TWS (Texas World Speedway), and I would hope that means a better track condition?

I'll be heading to Nola in April for the wera races. The track will hold it's own trackday on Friday (anyone can ride) and then the races on Saturday & Sunday.

As for your comment on track conditions. Yes, Nola & Barbers conditions is way better than what we have here. However, even though Nola is smooth, there is no elevation. But both tracks are fast and very fun to ride/race.

Usually it was track tactics but since we all know they've gone belly up, the actual track has been hosting the trackday on Friday before the race weekend.

I'm going again too. It's more expensive than MRSH but when you see the track you'll realize why. I went last December on NOLA track day and turn up was half or less than a Ride Smart day.

Thanks for the tip because they've redone the NOLA home page and it isn't easy to fine the dates.

I was thinking about going to NOLA later this year but it is quite a drive from Killeen. Maybe someone would be interested in carpooling. I have room in my truck for one more bike and even more if someone had a trailer.

Sport bike track gear is having an event at NOLA this weekend (May 3 - 4). I'd love to go and carpool. NOLA is amazing. And I have a trailer. Share gas and hotel in Avondale. Leave Friday at noon and come back Sunday night (or even Monday if you want. We could stay with a friend of mine Sunday in Lafayette, and break up the drive).

I live in Midtown (Houston).

Give me a shout.
