Did the NESBA day on the North Course on a very hot and humid Saturday.  

Facilites are first class.  You can pit on the pavement, and you get to watch the members bomb around in their expensive cars on the South track.

Course seems to be easy on tires and turns 3,4,and 5 are a great combo.  Couple of increasing radius corners, including the final turn, let you take them faster than you might think.

BUT, turn 1 is a mother, and will quickly seperate the boys from the men.  It will be interesting to see how everyone gets thru there on lap one.

First-class... Just don't go looking for electricity or showers!  And the grilled chicken salad was excellent!

I ran the same gearing as Blackhawk, although the course has lower top speeds, so a change may be advisable.  

I'm no expert in gear ratio's though, so.....

I ran a 15/47.

I guess taking gearing advice is a crap-shoot.

My goal in gearing is to use the lowest ratio (to reduce the number of shifts per lap) whilst not getting "stuck" anywhere (ie, needing to shift mid-corner)

At this track I used only 2nd, 3rd, and 4th on my 600, redlining in 4th on the front straight.

Used to run 15/46 on my 600gsxr and worked pretty well.

the 14/55 is on my stuntbike and was a joke, not advice  ;)

turn 1 is a mother


As in the little jink to the left?  Why is this such a 'mother'?

For me, it's a little tricky because it comes at the end of the straight and it's tough to gauge entry speed, especially knowing that it's backed up by a tight turn 2.

My guess is that you will have bikes going several wide into that turn at speed and then getting bottlenecked at T2.

I've only been on the track once though so it may just be a matter of getting comfortable on an unfamiliar track.

I hope they did something about a blend line though.  Pit in and pit out are a "pregnant dog", as the censorship software would say.

South course has a blend line... I don't think I saw one on the north.
