SOo you are telling me that we will be pitting off the straight away? Correct me if i'm wrong but that would make us have to stop completly to make that sharp right turn into pit lane. You don't think someone is going to come by there in second gear and tear the back end off somebodys car

We're going to run a club race on Saturday, October 13th, as a pre Pursuit Challenge II race. Racing starts @ 9:30am.

The straight is still in the back but it's shorter. I guess you can call it a halfway, yes theres a dip and Turbo T your straight away is in the parkinglot

We stopped running the full track because people say it's a engine killer. I say run the layout everyone knows, it's good.

Its too bad the lay out was changed. The track was just getting in great shape, and finally everyone had a track that when we arrived, it was ready to go, instead of standing around until the track was cleaned and sprayed.
I thought the crew at SVM was doing at great job maintaining the surface, and everyone enjoyed themselves.
If they are getting complaints about the track being too large, tell the ones
complaining to adjust their gearing. Is that not the reason for being able to change spur gears, and or pinions?
I say put er back the way it was,

Look I started racing at SVMand never blew up any motor .12 or.21. All the people complaining about blowing up motors are the ones that cant
tune or dont know about changing gears.Now you guys are saying the track is too big,But there are bigger tracks in the U.S. And their not crying
