NC Bike Track day

http://nccar.us/
http://www.teampromotion.com/tracks-we-ride/ncbike/

The itch to do a track day is getting worse and worse. So, I've been looking for a track that is not overly technical just to "pop the cherry."

Has anyone ran this one? What you think?

I've watched a couple videos, the track looks really wide. NOT MY VIDEO


I'm planning on going next season, I already have to much going on right now to add track prep'n the bike.

Thanks for any insight,
James

Hey, the next time you think about heading out there, let me know and I'll try to make it too.


I've done a lot of training courses based off the California Superbike School when I was in the Marines. Now that I'm out, I'm really jonesin.

Sweet, that's what I have.
If I have the time that weekend, I'll come up and play spectator.
