Went there last year with for the Rogue trackday. Awesome track and event hosted by some great people. I was still new on the bike, but it was fun and I'll be back now that I'm a little wiser!

Enjoy, you'll have a blast. Big step up from Jennings.

Great track, great facilities. I've been there two or three times, it's one of my faves.

Been there under less than perfect circumstances.

I am indifferent to the track itself, but the facilities are top notch. I will be there in May as well and look forward to changing my opinion of the track.

I'll be there with NESBA this Sat/Sun. From what I am hearing, it is suited to smaller CC bikes, but I'll let you know on Tue.

Yes, I redid it. Yes I enjoyed it!

I would say, behind VIR North, it is my second favorite track.
With the RC, I carried much more speed (due to confidence) around the entire track. I was able to adjust lines and use up "all" of the track when need be.

With a sold out track day, i found room to pass when ever needed.

I am not a fan of lefts. VIR is my home track, so i practice rights all year.
This is all I have for a left as far as form goes. I am very uncomfortable compared to rights.


I decided to wash the bike too....

Welcome Skipman. Been to Barber, although only to check out the museum and a race. Would love to do a trackday there.
