    Re: Rate that Track


    After riding NYST uptown Sunday and Downtown Monday, I have demoted downtown a bit. It doesn't flow as well, and there are far less passing opportunities.

    Hey, I was there monday.

    There seemed to be some new bumps this year. I had more fun downtown than the last time (two?) I rode it, but I still prefer uptown.

    Agreed. The G-out is better uptown too.

    Roebling has been improved its facilities big time since i last went there. But Summit Point has been repaved, and Roebling is desperately needing a repave. i'm swapping these two in my ranks.

    i didnt think anyone would put NHMS above NJMP t-bolt, but at 7:55pm, i suppose you could be drunk posting at that time.

    I might be rating my experience instead of the track itself.
    And my ranking is probably influenced by weather, not by alcohol
    I went to NJMP in October and it was pretty chilly. Lots of people crashed early in the day and a few 20 minute sessions turned into 5 minute session. I grew to fear turn 5 (first left turn in a track of right turns apparently makes that side of the tire cold).
    But I ought to go there again.

    if you think NJMP is cold in october, then you would want to avoid NHMS as well. There tends to be a lot of "i wanna go fast" customers at their track days that do crash a lot.
    NJMP is flat, so i can see why some dont like it. the facilities are pretty top notch though, and it's well maintained as it's a pro circuit. dirt track next door. pub onsite between the two tracks. kart track with miniGP racing. they even have paintball and a swimming pool there.

    Re: Rate that Track

    Thompson is a bit repetitive and stop & go. But the run onto the front straight is fun and saves it from being a snoozer. It does have a few safety issues.

    Thunderbolt is a great race track in my opinion. A bit flat, but it has at least the one blind rise, and one technical corner, A few fast corners, a slow one, a chicane, and LOTS of passing opportunities.

    Re: Rate that Track

    Need to update and add by order of preference .
    Results only matter At Daytona boring but has the best trophy.
    Roebling should be higher on the list but a Crash there makes it suck.
    Mid Ohio was is just the best mix of fast and technical.
    VIR and Barber are close 2nd and 3rd
    NJ is fast and would be higher if the others weren't so dam cool
    Old Loudon and the Bridge are what I learned on.
    NHMS needs a repave but is my home track.
    Homestead is very fast but boring in a way.
    Carolina needs help, The repave will help but??


    Mid Ohio
    VIR
    Barber
    NJ
    Daytona
    Homestead
    Bryar motorsport park
    Bridgehampton
    NHMS
    Roebling
    Carolina
