Track Review: Oregon Raceway Park

I wrote a little track review of Oregon Raceway Park on my friend, and fellow bimmerpost member, brave1heart's performance blog onehotlap.com.

Thought you guys might enjoy that. I will write about another "soon to open" track in the NW soon.

Thanks for the review Nicolas. Since it is like 4-5hours away, I assume you go there a night before. Can you give some info regarding accommodations around the track?

Yes, we usually go down for 2-day events. Arrive the night before the first day, and leave mid-afternoon the second day. They are a number of cheap motels and a few nice B&B close by.
Best options are on the ORP lodging section http://oregonraceway.com/our-partner...ravel/lodging/

Hope this helps

Not bad if you can get home at the end of the second track day.

I'd love to see a turn-by-turn write-up on how to drive the track. Does anyone have links to those?
