Oh man, that track looks fantastic! Have you been helping with the construction/design? Judging from the video, you seem pretty familiar with the track already.

This track will be fantastic. I love the cork screw like corner at the end.

I need a second job to finance all the track days next year

btw: at the last PCA driver skills day, I heard that there is a possible 3rd track in the future...

Thanks for the info.

I might move to Seattle - the last section looks awesome! God bless Laguna Seca for what it has done for new tracks!

I agree with the Laguna Seca corkscrew analogy. That front straight looks mighty fast too! I like how the high speed straight ends in a dual apex sweeper rather than a tight chicane or hairpin. It makes me think of turns 1 and 2 at Suzuka.

Or Turn 2 at Pacific Raceways, although the school line is go wide for the fist apex, and then do a late-apex for the second one.

In any case, it is good for the brakes The owner of the video said he was able to do 150mph on that straight... That would be a serious job for the brakes if the Turn 1 was a tight hairp(a)in
