Yeah, you are right, went up to TMS a few years back and did a 170mph ride along it, was great. They had a corvette driving school going on at the same time on the infield road course, real flat track. Not so good for scooters.

I agree at first look it doesn't look suitable but if it's 2.324 miles then it should be okay.

Not to mention 150mph to 30 mph braking off the banking with 100 feet to where traffic rejoins the oval. Someone would die if the whole track were ran.

I'm only taking about the infield, the oval is one of the fasted for sure wouldn't be suitable for bikes.

I emailed Dave Wonders about the track and he emailed me that he actually has called them to get rental rates but was unable to get a response from them. He said maybe I have more luck getting the inf. So, if anyone has a contact Dave is interested in renting it.

Well if dave thought the infield track was a viable track then maybe. probably a 50 buck track.

ok...i think that it would be cool riding another track. I bet riding a mini on that course would be fun! We need more lw racing in TX.
