"The Track" section seems like a ghost town, so I wanted to see what new rides (new to you, not necessarily showroom new) people will be hitting the track with for 2018.

I'm still rocking the R3.

Any big changes for someone else?

Don't know if I'm allowed to post in the hallowed cra section... :twofinger:

We are planning a summer trip to Washington state. So I dug around and found that CSS has some dates scheduled at The Ridge in Sheldon Washington.
Anyone familiar? Looks like some decent elevation with a mini corkscrew. Looks like fun.

Did my first 2 levels at Laguna Seca last june on their new 2017 S1000RRs. Had a blast.

Will do the usual track days this summer at Road America and BIR on my '16 BMW S1000RR. Maybe HPR.

Still on the SV. I just sent in my license app for CCS, as I've moved to Kokomo, IN. Blackhawk will likely be my main track now. But I will definitely be at the joint CRA/CCS event at Road America, and hopefully Brainerd too.

Blackhawk! When did they last repave that little gem? Is it still 1.6 miles or did they ever expand it?

Call it 3.14 km. Sounds bigger that way. Autobahn is just as close, but I'm leery of an April 29 race date.

I'm also considering farther drives to new tracks.... Carolina Motorsports Park, Summit Point, or VIR. Any suggestions if I had to pick one?

I do not believe it has been repaved/changed in many many years. Though I do believe some of the facilities have been updated or added to.

I have heard good things about Summit Point, and VIR is a classic track as well. If I was near you I'd be looking at Gingerman also and maybe Mid Ohio.

Jesse,

VIR is an awesome track. Really is world class.

Summit point has 3 different tracks, the main track is a very fast track and was repaved last fall. They added some banking to T1 and T10, as well as widening T3 exit.

Video from Team Pro-Motion GO Moto 300 race last year. With an appearance by yours truly at the 2:10 mark lol

Jon- Thanks for mentioning Gingerman. CCS doesn't race there anymore, but I started researching and realized that AHRMA does, and SV's fit into their Sound of Thunder 3 class.. Sounds like a fun experience! No racing opportunity at Mid Ohio that I can find.

Tyykila, welcome to the CRA.
