It took some 40 min. just to exit and get into the track. They then delayed the run by30 min so that people could get in. What a nightmare for just 3000 people.
From what i can tell, there is only 1 entrance into the track. I could be wrong about that?-- and it's just a 1-way road in (812). So how the heck are 150K people all going to feed into the facility with just 1 entrance?
BTW, the elevation changes on this track are crazy.
V -- at the M day a few weeks ago, I believe you said you're in turn 11; that looks like a great spot. You can see cars coming at you and then make the turn down and away from you.
Construction update: They are still doing lots of construction/installing seats/planting bushes.
The track is kind of in the middle of nowhere. What will compound that is TX-130 doesn't have a ton of exits so the few exits within that vicinity will be packed.

Probably should do a 4x4 and just off road there...this is Texas ain't it y'all? Or stop being such a cheap skate and rent a helicopter.
