Jimmy, come on. You're the only one turning this in to a "us vs them". I don't care who rides where, and each track is unique.

I've logged plenty of time at MSRH since it first opened, years of time at OHR, MSRCresson, and TWS (Texas World Speedway), as well as Hallett- I have my opinions as anyone else does about their favorite track. You can place your own stamp on what you think the "most technical" track is, who cares? It's an opinion, everyone has one.

Just like I did when the Pearland track opened, I'll reserve my opinion for when I turn some laps at GSS. I don't know what kind of track it's going to be until my personal wheels hit the pavement there. My suspicion is that it will be tight, and flat, just like the Pearland track is, but a good place for local noobies to get some great time and introduction to the track scene- as well as experienced racers getting some great local time to hone their skills.

Worried about losing business to MSRH? LSTD has been around for a long time, and my suspicion is that LSTD will be around for a long time to come. As I have a history of saying every time the "LSTD vs Ride Smart" debate comes up, we are lucky to have so many options as far as track riding goes! I think it's fortunate for all involved with the sport that there are choices, and now, riding almost year-round! When I first started racing in the late '80's, we didn't have this luxury then. We could travel to California and attend a riding school (or some other distant places), or ride OHR (which was a good thing, but the only "local" one). Now, we have 2 local small tracks in our area, TWS (Texas World Speedway), Cresson (my personal favorite, especially in the full configuration), Hallett, NPR (which I'll not go back to again, but it's still w/in 12 hours of here), and two big trackday orgs (LSTD and Ride Smart) with another one possibly coming, and a local trackday org that puts on local days at their track.

We have it good.

Let's move on from the "us vs them" thing, it's pretty old and played out.

Amen. That's exactly what I was saying the other day, "Tony needs to have the Universal trackday organization"... great minds think alike, eh?

BTW, did you get the truck arranged to be delivered?

ok, so now that LMS, and LSTD have advertised their services to this guy(and not REALLY answering his question)

Im going to lock this.

To the thread starter...sorry things got this way, pretty much every trackday orginization in Texas (almost all are Motohouston sponsors) are great way to get a track fix.... and great thing is, you can do every track in texas, but you dont have to go to one or the other.... , try em all out.... all offer different services/prices/tracks etc..... its what makes Texas great in my opinion.
