Road America

I just signed up for my first track day (May 29th) at Road America through NESBA. Does anyone have experience with the track and/or NESBA? Any heads up would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey thanks cookeetree! I was hoping that Tourist Trophy for PS2 had the track but no luck there. I will post some pictures as soon as I get back for all to laugh at

It's on V8 Supercars 2, but you guys probably can't get that over there. Oh well. Have a great (safe) time!

Hey I'm back from Road America and it was a blast! That was one of the most humbling experiences I've had on the motorcycle. There were so many good riders out there and the track was very fast.

It was hotter than hell with temps around 90 F, but the track was super sticky due to the Porsche races the day before. Unfortunately, I did go off track at Canada Corner into the gravel trap, but kept it upright with only minor scratches to the lower plastics.

I'm still waiting to see how the track photos came out but for now;

Not too much to see really, but it's good to see that I was looking down the track
