    Small track in western PA. 50 second lap, but it's technical, fast, flowing and takes a big set to go really fast on.

    Re: Rate that Track

    Perspective of a slow-ish TTD yellow (intermediate) group rider.

    1) Palmer "normal" (ccw) and "reverse" (cw) - tie, with reverse maybe getting a slight edge
    2) NYST downtown
    3) NYST uptown
    4) Mid-O
    5) Thompson
    6) Loudon

    1) Palmer is a "right proper road course" in that it really feels like you're going somewhere. Big, long sweepers with super-late apexes both ways, huge elevation change, beautiful setting. Reverse might get a slight nod because the flow seems better to me. Decent facilities with lots of potential for improvement. A few years in some degradation starting to appear -- chewed pavement from cars and a few bumps.
    2) NYST downtown. Most of the lap climbs so you get the warm fuzzies about getting the power on, and confidence abounds. First turn not as scary as it might seem but people do overcook it pretty regularly. Nice elevation change, nice flow. Wheelie Hill takes a lot of trust going this way. Facilities far from the best, but at least they've got good showers.
    3) NYST uptown. Also good flow, though the last third can be a bit challenging to get right, starting at the diving Turn 12 complex.
    4) Mid-O. Lovely park-like setting. Great facilities. Track is pretty beat up in places (especially the Keyhole) and can be "moody" with grip changing as the day warms up. A good bit of fun roller-coaster like elevation change.
    5) Thompson. Got a soft spot here because it's where I rode my first track day. Short track, point-and-shoot with a decent variety of corner types. Easily the best for spectators because you can see every inch of the track if you walk around. I prefer the counter-clockwise direction (backwards) for its flow through the first section leading onto the oval, but there's a big trust moment at the end of the front straight going that way. Very good facilities.
    6) Loudon. Old and it shows it, with a few bumps so harsh you'd better make sure your tongue isn't between your teeth. Fun track with "character." Not a real flowing ride... it has distinct sections. Best facilities by far.

    It's wild to me to see so many people ranking downtown nyst over uptown. I do not like downtown at all personally lol.

    Re: Rate that Track

    To me NYST is very similar either direction. All the double apex corners still tighten a little at exit requiring a patient throttle hand. I do like to rip the fast section downtown better, but I don't like wheelie hill as much. I prefer T1 uptown to T18 downtown, so uptown gets the nod... by a whisker.

    I've yet to have the chance to ride Downtown, but I love NYST overall. Hoping to have another go at it as T11 and I have some unfinished business...
