Have you been on it? How do you compare it to Hallet or MSR?

I heard the pavement was possibly getting torn up. I am supposed to be racing there in a couple of months, but on two wheels, not four.

I've been out there on two occasions. Its a great track with good flow. The track is starting to deteriorate already though. The braking zones already have washboard. It would be really fun with a high hp car i would think. My 1973 Formula ford turned a 1:58. Still not as good as MSR cresson IMHO but pretty close to Hallet.

I can't wait to get out there with some power. sucks about the pavement, but that's what they get for backing out of my Jr. Membership.

Ya they just did a bunch of stuff for safety out there too. Redid the pit entrance and whatnot. Got a friend who races vintage with me that got that badass deal on a membership thy had a few years back. He payed like 2000 and got full mmbership for life. Anyways, he took his 94 ZR1 out there and said it was a blast having good HP on the track (he drives a 1275cc MG midget in CVAR). that is until he went off and fucked up the right side suspension and wheels. Going off out there is rough, I have first hand experience.


BTW first time out beware of that pit lane with cold tires. Decreasiong radius turn will make you look like a fool.

I have done hundreds of racing laps at TWS (no exaggeration) but also on two wheels, not four. Also done Hallett, MSR-C, MSR-H, and Barber. TWS is fast fast faaaaast! Easily the fastest of the bunch. I've been 170 mph on the front straight, 130+ easy through turn 1, with lots of knee dragging though the other corners there. I love that track.

Ya I have. But I lack money. I want to do the [email protected] but I'm not sure if I'll be in town. Im about to throw in a custom rollbar so that will help me for the track days. I'm doing a track day tomorow at MSR cresson but in my 125 shifter kart. Its gonna be a blast.

Don't forget about more HP!

I'd like to goto Hallet, but I'm still up in the air.
