I've only ran the old MSR track and Harris Hill here in Austin.

That track looks like fun though. Hard to tell any elevation changes with that pic though.

I could never afford it...and its too bad there is no elevation. I drive at MSR and Hallett frequently. I'd like to run Eagle's Canyon and Harris Hill, but these places are getting so expensive I just can't afford it. Hell, ECR wants $300 just for a non-member track day, and they treat you like a novice on day one, regardless of 40+ hours of track time...lol.

you gotta go when a club or group rents the track out. i went
to harris hills during a pca (porsche club of america) event and it was only 150.00. i go to houston msr and texas world speedway all the time with NASATX and it's 180.00 for the day. 4 - 20min. sessions. trust me, by the end of the day you tired. next event i'm going to is at houston msr on july 9th
with these guys: www.texas-racing.com go to that website for more info...

When I used to autoX alot the Houston SCCA held their events there. Most cars stayed in 2nd gear because of pylon layout.

It's a very small track. Great for Miatas up to 3rd gear.
