    Headed for Beaver

    I'm packing tonight and driving to Beaver Run Tomorrow. USGPRU is holding a 2-stroke only event there this weekend. Should be fun to race at another track. I can't wait!

    I know a few of you went there last year. Any tips?

    wide open passed the kink

    find a good skid mark to use for a marker in turn 7 and stick to it.

    Breaking on the end of the straight is uphill so you can go deep.

    The first section of rights can be taken very fast as one turn.

    The locals are slow in the first turn since it's a lefter.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    If I remember right they both do, the front more than the back. Dan and I walked the track one night and got a real good look at it. That made a big difference in laptimes the next day. He recently did a trackday there, so it's probably fresher in his mind.

    The course reminds me a lot of VIR south.

    Yeah, good luck, PAul.

    I hope the rains have ended in PA and that the track dries out for you.

    Peter told me that a major bridge on the thruway washed out. RT 80 was all backed up as well due to it. Might want to look into the repair and traffic status and map your route accordingly.

    I90 untill Eire PA, drop down from there (79 I think).

    More traction than you are used to, wack it coming out of the turns (put your hand on the track surface to see for yourself).

    The Holiday Inn is great, $89 with a Beaver discount.

    Shazaam! All the way up through Buffalo? Is that the best route? I was planning 84-81-80.

    Edit: I called PA-DOT. 80 and 84 are closed. I guess I'm going thru Buffalo!

    Paul good luck and make sure to do a race report afterwards.

    Going the truway to Buff isn't to bad but VERY boring and adds tolls! Shouldn't add to much to the time though.

    Oh yeah check to see if they reopened the NYS thruway Between Albany and Utica (Dodgeville or something like that). It was closed yesterday!

    Good luck Paul. I hear there is a slight bump down the straight that can cause the front to get light and tank slap on you, so be light on the bars.

    Wilkes-Berre was all flooded out and there were under a threat of their levees washing out so I bet the whole state is a mess.
