Barber motorsports park april 5-6

Finally, got everything in order before my first trackday of the season.

Anyone heading to barber in April with STT?

I had planned to be there until Josh Herrin decided to have a big money race at his house on minis.

I'll be there at the may event

Re: Barber motorsports park april 5-6

I hope they say yes haha. I'm going to need some help as I get reacquainted with being on two wheels. Haven't gone fast since September at ACC north course!

By help, do you mean be a control rider?

Re: Barber motorsports park april 5-6

I have been hearing a lot of bad things regarding ripples on the track this year. The Indy cars have ripped it up is the word going around. Can anyone confirm or deny the extent of the damage? I plan on going July 12th-13th and want to know what i'm getting myself into regarding ripples.

Re: Barber motorsports park april 5-6

It's not that bad. It is still better than the majority of tracks in the north or west or Texas. T4 you have to pick the right line. The rest is mostly on straights and not that bad. Still an amazing track.

Re: Barber motorsports park april 5-6

Sounds good, signing up for the weekend today Track looks fun in the videos i'v watched. If anyone will be down there that weekend post up! I'll be in novice to begin with to learn the track and my lines then going to intermediate for the remainder of the weekend. Bike won't pass inspection for advanced and to much work to do so.
