MSRH advice.

Looking for some pointers on overnight camping and pit areas. I'm a long time track day rider and am going down to MSRH for the first time on the 28th with R/S, planning on arriving Fridays evening in my 26 ft. Rv. Where is a good spot to park/pit to be out of the way and not have to walk a mile for the classroom? Riding L2, you know 1st time at MSRH. Any track tips won't hurt my feeling.
Thanks.
Chris

Other than the coned off area which is where the instructors park and the red lines you can park anywhere it doesn't stick out. Many park along the fence next to the track. Smart idea to get there Friday night. I'm sure someone here has a parking map. Level 2 classroom is upstairs near the front

Along the fence, close to the pit in/out , is prob best for an RV. Learn the track best you can before you get there.. only major bumps on track i can think of is the second corner of the only tight right left combo (called bus stop) (corner 10) keep that corner reall tight and dont miss apex or it will mess your corner up a bit.. between corner 4 and 5 do not ride the left side of the track or it will feel like your on a bucking horse, stay middle to right side.. if you want any help in any way im at your service. I will be in a black 2002 F250 super duty , riding a ducati 1198 with painted red, black, white #23 race fairing. Dainese suit with Rosi boots.. My name is Jonathan, look me up when you get there.. i have another friend in lvl 2 so i will be riding lvl 2 as well..

Plenty of CMRA videos on YouTube. The left after the launch catches a few people out. There is also some sketchy pavement going into Diamonds Edge. Sneak up on it. Make sure your pressures are spot on. Good Luck. Have fun.

This video may be helpful for you to learn the track:

I'd take Jonathan's offer and get a tow with him. He knows the track really well and is always very helpful with tips.

Thanks man, I know R/S usually Emails a parking map out a couple of days before the event. Yeah, I was thinking it's a good idea to show up the night before at a new track. I have pitted next to you and your son a couple of times at TWS (Texas World Speedway).

Thanks man, I'll do that. All ways good to meet new people who have insight on the track. I'm 62 y/o fat man riding a Ducati 1100 Monster, mostly track an SV but I'm trying to figure out the Monster. See ya at the track.

Thanks man, we have meet before I think, I use to ride track days with Dan Moody before he went off road, dual sport. I think we might have owned the same Gen 1 S.V. at one time or another. I have been tracking an SV for a long time, gonna try something a little different with an older Monster.

We use P1 for our tire guy and John will be there if it's not a race weekend. I'm sure he can help you out.

Toss some tape over the weights. That's what all the tire vendors do. Sometimes you get duct tape with unicorns on it. Worth a 1/2 second per lap....

Thanks for the help fellas, it was nice meeting you Jonathan. The track day went off great, parking by the fence was the ticket and worked out well. It was the 1st time I rode with R/S using the new format, I liked it, a of a lot LESS rush. The sweeper and the switchback coming out of the carousel onto the club house straight are fun as .
