MSR - Houston, TX...any new info??

Just wondering if anyone had any pics or info on how the track construction was progressing. With gas prices being what they are, sure would be nice to have a track closer to home.

They started laying the track today... they are framing the main building this week... the plan on having all the paving of the track done in 10 days I think... there is an update on HSN (too bad the sites down)

MSR Houston is having an open house this weekend. The track is laid out with asphault... I was emailed to bring my bike to take a few laps around the track. Bike is sold, but we may stop by Saturday on our way to Galveston. If I do, I'll take my camera and post some pics.

From Houston, take 288 South, pass the Beltway, pass Hi-6, pass 1462, look for South County Road 48, turn left, look for big yellow awning.

The wife and I are going to try and be out there between 11am and Noon. They said they're gonna have BBQ on the construction site.

I'll take some pics and post 'em back here for grins.

The turn in the center of the track is like a Super Carousel! I can't wait for this place... Jeff, are you guys going to have any LSTD event there next year?

That turn does look very cool... and the plan is indeed to have track days there! I'm looking forward to it!

Jeff... I think we need to have a LSTD staff only trackday, so the instructors and owners can get used to the track layout before a normal LSTD event!

Ya know... an excellent idea. I hear the track is going to be rather pricey to rent though... so we might need your credit card for this event.
