No, I haven't.
I haven't even unsharpened brake pads yet!


I'm booked for 28th at TWS (Texas World Speedway).
Since Ride Smart is running the big track at MSRC, thought about going.
Just an idea.

They are running the big track? Do you have a confirmation on that... I was pretty sure bikes where not running on the expansion due to safety issues.

If you guys have ever walked the track and taken a look at the run-off, you may change your mind about wanting to run them both together. The run-off, coupled with the communication problems do not combine for a safe venue, in most people's opinion.

I had a ball running both tracks together last year- LSTD was the first org to run it. But after further considerations, most all agree that it is not quite ready to be safe enough to hold regular events combining both tracks.
Thanks for clearing that up Tom. I can wait until it is a safer environment. I certainly don't wont to deal with any steep downgrades and ditches at the moment.

It'll be great one day there- the track surface is great, and the course is very interesting and challenging. Just not there on the safety aspect though... IMHO.
I have not had a up close look at everything but I did see the spot you guys were talking about were your buddy had his get off. I would have ditched the bike as well.

I ran the big track last year first time out....didn't see any safety concern except the ambulance was kinda slow to get to downed rider. Just take it easy the first session, learn the track, and have a blast. I liked it very much.
