I'd go and check it out for yourself. It seems to be a good small technical track; that is not too hard to get a feel for. I'll be out there this Monday.
Good times.

John

Nice picture. I am thinking I will make it out there for the TTD event. That is still a little ways away, but I need a track fix and that is the first one that works out with my schedule. Any tracktime is better than none. We will see if I still have my bike by then also.

I was not aware that it was an older track. I thought it just got built this past year? Is there more than one track there? I know there is talk of another circuit at the same facility, is that underway yet?

Thanks for the replies.

The old track has a lot of racing history, the meekums used to do testing out there. A lot of the old track was dug out so the new track could be put in. The new circuit "tiger" is looking like it might be completed towards the end of the year. The land has already been cleared for it.

Thanks for the replies.
The track shown in the pic is the new track. The newer section isn't done yet. If you look closely, you can see a portion of old track in the top-center. The new surface is very smooth and great on tires they say.

It's been 5 months since I've ridden. I hope I can find the throttle.
