Chuckwalla Raceway

If anybody gets the chance to do a track day at Chuckwalla Raceway outside Palm Springs CA, I would highly recommend it. Awesome track 17 turns and a couple challenging corners. I went to a TrackDayz sponsored event there a couple weeks ago. Great organization, really helpful staff. All around great experience.

Ohweeeee! That looks like a fun track. Great to know - my folks live in LA, I visit there often, and usually take my bike with me.

Weather must be pretty nice there in winter time. What kind of temps did you see the day you were there?
I'm digging your Rossi helmet.

I went the week of October 25th and it had to be 90+, I was sweating quite a bit, and I am from Vegas and very used to the heat. Track was hot never had to worry about cold tires thats for sure, after each session they were quite melty.
I though the Rossi helmet would make me faster.....it didnt
