Not any more. It's sticky from the first session to the last now.

I dig the 1.3, and it's a great track to have fun on any bike from a 1k to NSR!

Personally, I like the 3.1 the best (combining the 1.3 and 1.7 tracks), that configuration should be back on our schedule next year too.

Don't sell the 1.7 off either- plenty of fast folks have tons of fun on their motards, and your KTM should be no different!

greg, the 1.3 is a great motard track and as jeff said, tons of fun on any bike really, the 1.7 is a good motard track as well, it's a bit fast for a motard but it's still fun. the 1.7 and ronnie hay's 450 motard broke my motard cherry at Cresson. i'll never forget that day!

The 1.3 is a LOT of fun with big elevation changes and tight turns.
Hey anybody know what kind of lap times they ran there?

I've never run a lap timer there. You can look at the CMRA results there for the mini lap times.

My team was running 1:14's on an 80cc 2-stoke mini. I think Dominguez set the fast lap of the 3-hr at 1:10 something on a ninja 250

Thats a really fun track also, lots of different lines to run (on a mini at least) and tons of elevation change.

I didnít realize there was a beacon there until my last session. Slapped my timer on and was running around 1:12. Great to know my extra 920 ccís got me around two seconds faster than the 80ís. Too bad I couldnít have hung with the big 250 .
Not that I care, it felt like railin to me. I had a blast on that track. I may try the 1.7 here soon and really look forward to trying them combined sometime.
