Tempting...was there in August. If they haven't added anything new, then you will have 1 building there only. Period. When I was there, there was 1 bathroom, about half a mile down on the track. No other facilities. No electricity (other than generators people brought).
They said they were building more and adding to it.
Seemed to be paranoid about having motorcycles on the track.
those were the negs.
For the positives, the track is really technical...I would say a liter bike is an overkill by a mile. Short but twisty and very fun to ride. No elevation changes, but you still get a workout, especially if you ride the two hairpin turns (if they are a part of the track).
Had a lot of fun, but the temp was killing us all...about 110 in the shade...now should be perfect.

Thanks for your input "ciaka". Things have changed since you guys were out there.

It's going to be a fantastic day for noobs and experienced racers alike.

BBQ is confirmed, should be about $6/ plate, proceeds from that going to Alrova too. The BBQ will be by Aaron Gore, and for those of you that attended the OHR benefit he did, you know how good it is!

Thanks all for your participation in this worth-while benefit for a great guy!

Heck, just getting to the track one last time this year as a big group with some of the best people on track is worth going.

Can't wait!

cajun, when you go to the site to sign up ( which i did last night to verify an opening) it will let you know if it is full or closed, as of last night there are spots open in the A and C groups.

By the way, I just checked and only C group has spots open so you better be on the QUICK about signing up..

go here to sign up * https://www.lstd.com/race/index111807_riding_don.shtml*

Even if you guys can't make it sunday for the trackday, this BBQ is awesome and the cooks look DAYYYUM tasty themselves.

DAWG! (i think only Capafool and I know the meaning of this word)
