    Eagles Canyon - Aug 21-23

    Fresh post on the Fbook page looks like it's a Covid based go. 10 days of discount signup... I guess I gotta check the calendar and tire supply.

    And brakes... lots and lots of brakes.

    I hate to miss it. I like that track and want to try out the changes but I will not make it. Racing in August in Texas is not my cup of tea (and I will be out of state).

    I was there yesterday...it isn't that bad on brakes. I wasn't even running brake ducts. Surface is super smooth, layout is actually sort of fun for club track...racing is going to be pretty tight when mistakes get made in the rhythm section. Surface doesn't provide a ton of grip though but it had rained a ton over night.

    Biggest BS issue was the track rules about going off since it had rained the night before. If a car when 4 off...that car had to stop in its tracks and they black flagged the session to prevent mud/rock from getting onto the track surface. Our novice group got like 4 hot laps total in 3 sessions. Was a serious cluster. They are more protective of the surface than COTA......All I could think was "wait till NASA gets here and you have a race group in the rain". Someone will get lynched because they aren't lifting and waiting for a tow. I suspect the surface is diabolical when wet.....and the MUCK 3' and further off course is like east texas sticky clay. If it rains....it will be a mess for sure. Paddock area is still postage stamp sized and they are making it worse by building more buildings. Not sure how they would support a 100 race car weekend let alone 150-200 car weekend with trailers and haulers. I WANT to bring the CMC car and play would have to arrive on Tuesday to find room to park our monster because they are using a portion of the lower paddock for trailer storage for member's trailers. They spent all their money on Visual improvements and surface improvements but NOTHING to support a race weekend. They didn't even buy signs for "Track entry" or "Exit" which was confusing when there are TWO exits.

    Sorry for the slight "rant" but figured you guys could use the info prior to arrival. The track is pretty damn fun and I like the new layout. The 6, 7, 8, 9 10-11 combo is pretty fun and flowing.

    CBP FTW!
