Summit Point, June 8th

Anybody going to Summit Point June 8th with NESBA?
I've never been there, is there anything I should know (e.g. don't eat the food at the cafeteria at Pocono)?
I have space for a second bike on my open trailer if someone needs a lift, I'm leaving very early morning from Warwick, NY.

which course?

the jefferson curcuit is small. it's like under a minute lap time. nesba runs it backwards from tpm, so i can't say much.

if it's the full course, get ready for some SERIOUS speed (and bumps).

and use the bathrooms that are behind the scoring tower, not the ones by the pits.

It's JC on the 8th and 9th

I'll be there on the 9th, but can't make the 8th. I was going to tell you not to touch anything in the bathrooms, but I've heard they were re-done since last year so that may not be an issue. Be careful of the dashed lines painted on the course (esp turn 1). They are there for the driving schools that take place there, and they can really surprise you with a nice little 4 inch slide if you catch one wrong in a turn.

Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.

Thanks Tony & Stake.
I'll be doing jefferson circuit. Sub 1 minute lab times is a pretty short course, but I think I learn more on the short courses where you do each turn more times, so that's cool.
And I'll be sure to watch out for slippery hazards both on course and in the restrooms.

it's a fun place, you should enjoy it. stake is dead-on though, the white lines suck. the first turn (if nesba runs it clock-wise) is a bit blind as well. just remember, you should be able to go fairly straight out of it onto a long straight. it's been nearly a year and my memory is not good enough to run it backward....

but it is a LOT of fun. just be careful, there's not a lot of runoff there.

I'll be there both days. Chris_y2k_r1 will also be there on Sunday. Look me up. I'll be control riding on the red 99f4 #89. The white lines shouldn't even make you flinch. NESBA runs clockwise which seems to be the safest way around. We took a few laps counter clockwise last week to keep an open mind about running it the other direction. The fact is that there is almost no run off room going into turn one (counter clockwise). If you tuck the front there you have exactly 25 feet until you impact the wall.

I will definitely look for you guys there, I don't know the correct lines around the track and I'm not too good at figuring them out.

I have a very ratty black/red F4 (does NESBA let you run without side fairings?).

Thanks

Jake

i agree with geoff, running it counter-clockwise does make turn 1 VERY dangerous.
