Oregon Raceway Park is amazing...

Its truly in the middle of nowhere, but it's an incredibly challenging track with lots of vertical to complicate things and create a lot of blind horizons. It was a great track for the E90. I went on a PCA Club day and had a great time with the GT3s and GT3RSs.



Much different that the local PIR or Pacific Raceways. I'm looking forward to The Ridge (and coilovers).

It's a hoot. So much fun. This is CCW, the "normal" layout is clockwise.

Looks like fun but yeah, the horizon is pretty sparse. What's the nearest town?
