Don't have my license, otherwise I'd be down.
You don't wanna just wait and do the trackday/practice on the friday prior?

It only takes a a minute thirty to get around that track, Greg. How hard could learning it be?

I'd go, but then there's this job thing. You know, job?

oak hill is easy to learn......kinda, sorta.

it's a point and shoot track. just work on braking there....that's what really counts at oak hill.

it's best to learn oak hill with someone who has prior experience there (with decent lap times)

Man Tony, I can't go with the "point and shoot" mentality at OHR, corner speed rules there in so many places, which is opposite of "point and shoot" to me.

Greg, just think GSS with elevation and a bit more room to wind out the tranny!

that is true also....i'll take my words back. 3 out of 8 turns i believe are the point and shoot. the rest do require corner speed to drop the times.

me thinks turn 2, 7, and 8 are the turns where u just wanna get in and out quick without worrying too much about cornerspeed.

racing tip at oak hill: if you're in the lead on any of your races......stick to the point and shoot method and ride defensive lines, make the guy with faster lap times work hard for the pass.

Fack, it's hard enough to pass at the Hill, you're going to make it harder?
