Who's raced what tracks?

....write down if it was just a track day though....

I'll go 1st, add a little description maybe...I've raced all 5 of these in CCS racing many times...

1.Moroso Motorsports Park, W Palm Bch- my home track for the CCS Fla region, fast and fun 10 turns 2.25m

2.Daytona International Speedway-twice a yr, 3 races ea, bikeweek and biketoberfest, what can you say, its DAYTONA! road course 3.56m. 31 degree banking

3.Road Atlanta, Braselton GA- AWESOME hills and curves -2.54m -12 turns

4.Roebling Road, Savanah GA - kinda small and windy- 2.02m 9 turns

5.Talladega GP Raceway, Munford, AL- tiny bumpy gocart track that i hate... 1.3m- 7 turns

....and 1 trackday at Sebring, Fla, bumpy and too many walls.....

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Sears Pt Sonoma, CA- 11 turns 7 elevation changes. Skill wins over horsepower.
Thunderhill Willows, CA 15 turns 4 elevataion changes. Long fast turns, wide open racing.
Buttonwillow Raceway, Buttonwillow, CA 13 turns only 1 real elevation, flat fast, but technical
Willow Springs, Rosamond, CA The fastest road in the west! 9 turns 2 elevation changes, but you're in 5th or 6th gear for most of the track. (trackday)

I would love to ride at:
Laguna (85db limit!)
Miller
VIR
Barber
Monza
Assen

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Oak Hill Raceway
Texas World Speedway
Texas Motor Speedway
Motorsports Ranch
Hallett Motor Racing Circuit
Autodromo de Monterrey
Hawaii Raceway Park
Willow Springs
Indianapolis (Raceway park, not the 500 oval.)
Road Atlanta

I think that's all.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Is that Road Atlanta before or after they got rid of gravity cavity?

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Yes, it was back in the day when it was scary. Gravity cavity and NO runoff to the wall.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

re: gravity gavity

I know, was that a wild ride or what? top gear over that lip weeeeeeeee....down then weeeeeeee back up hard on the brakes, down the hill and right to that dang wall going into the straight, my brother passed me there on the outside in the rain once, almost bought the wall so to speak..

Also saw a guy buy it dead at the bottom of the cavity on a 750/1000 when he had a tank slapper at the top and went off to the right at the bottom...

My brother and i both ran off the track in #3 on our 1st time around that track......(its a blind right/left at the top of a hill)

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Yeah my wrench Chip was there racing once when i was camping in the infield, he was on a GSXR-750 with a 1100 motor stuffed into it, did not look fun to me, but the wheelies out of 5 every time were cool...

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Ok, so can anybody tell me what Louden is like? I hear all sorts of godlike things about EX racers from Louden.

Loudon is a tight technical track that rewards late braking, cornerspeed, and tight lines.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?


does look extremely difficult. but I'm biased to my state and will say Barber's > Loudon even though I've never raced at either or at all.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Until you have raced Loudon, you have no idea of the many challenges of the course. It's pretty much bumpy enough to be motocross on pavement.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Hey Jason, where did you get that tracklayout of Loudon? It shows a layout that is never used for Motorcycles omitting the south Chicane.
We did run a race weekend that way once whe they were Paving pit road , but that was it.

A little side story: That weekend was when I learned to slide the tires, front and rear. going around the Nascar turn 1,2 took forever and you reached you maximum in the first 100 feet, then you just crused around the rest. I found that I had plenty of time at full lean to speed up a bit and feel the rear tire give up a little. You could mess around with the throttle and hang it out as much as you wanted. Great Fun.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

I just searched loudon on google images, that had another one that was bigger so I used this one, it still shows the south chicane but it isnt greyed out as travel.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Re:gravity cavity. Yeah ,Wolf, that was a trip!Light,then heavy,then light,then set up for that weird right under the bridge,seemed like it sucked you wide toward the hay bales,then down the hill on the gas,trying not to stare at the WALL,right again,feels off camber but it isn't,then the finish line.Really gets interesting when somebody tries to be a hero on the last lap.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

Exactly, when my brother past me there in the RAIN on the OUTSIDE on the last lap of a CCS Lt Wt Superbike race I thought he was nuts.

Re: Who's raced what tracks?

I don't race, but I would love to go to Laguna Seca. The hill drop would be crazy, also I would love to race at Road Atlanta.
