TWS (Texas World Speedway) CW why not?

I notes from Hart Photography that a Drivers Edge event they ran cars CW. Have bikes ever run CW? Obviously you need to scuff a lot of speed after the straight.
But other wise would there be any concerns. Not that it matter too much giving the future of TWS (Texas World Speedway).

I heard a few things when I talked to a couple of them, just saying it was weird and hard to get used to. That made sense to me because well it was only one "session" so you dont learn a track with one session.

I rode it CW. Amazing experience. Problem is run off issues. For example going into 10, if you had a problem, you would head right to the flagging bunker. A few others as well.


Cool stuff..

Coming onto the front straight was wild...HUGE opening up. Coming off the straight is not as bad as you would imagine, although it took a few laps to get it. The oddest for me was coming out of eight, going into 7. Very cool, and a whole new perspective.

Out of four, you hit wheelie hill and unload suspension, then brake hard to handle three. Pretty cool.

Lots of fun, but safety issues are there and hard to ignore.

There are 3 turns with safety considerations going CW. Would need air fence for sure and that may not be enough. I would NEVER want to race that direction no matter how much air fence there is in those spots.
