      Thx for the video. First time I look at the track. Designer really likes double apexes !!

      Anyone knows curbing here. Do u take them or leave them alone or does it depends on the corner ?
      The paint on the curbs are slippery from what I remember and they also kept pushing me away. I'd stay off of them.

      The rumble strips at the corner exits are not too bad, so they should be ok to touch.

        • See you guys tomorrow afternoon. Charles and i will start driving over there in the morning. Clint, i think we have space for one person on the floor. So you get first dibs. We made reservation at the Fantasy Springs Resort in Indio, about 40 minutes from the track. Believe it or not, that's the closest hotel to the track.

                      Manly, any words on a possible open day afterward?

                      Also, I'll see you guys hopefully by 8-8:30am on Monday at Chuckwalla.

                          I assume "public" includes even us that's in the magazine article.

                          Also, anyone got room on the floor for Sunday night or want to carpool to the event?

                            • Definitely only the Challenge drivers allowed on track Monday. Micky told me it's not an open track day, even for trackHQ members who aren't driving in the Challenge.

                              You guys are gonna like this track. Way better than SOW or ACS Infield. I like better than ACS Roval and maybe even Buttonwillow (I will get flamed for that last one). It flows really well, with great combinations of turns.
