Summit Point Shenadoah Circut
« on: January 18, 2005, 11:58:18 am »
Since we have 2 dates scheduled for 2005 do we know if there has been any changes to the "track of death"???  Is armco being moved so in case we decide to run off the track and check out the hot girl in the bikini we dont die hitting da big bad scary not friendly armco? ???

I haven't heard any updates to the new circuit recently.

I do know there were a select few racers that went out late last season to do some "test laps"and he just happened to have an onboard camera. I think I recall the top speed being 120mph, even then it was just for a brief moment. It's a very VERY technical track with average speeds being somewhere in the area of 45mph - 65mph.

The first race weekend at Summit is scheduled for April, so I'm sure more people will be chiming in with their opinions once they check out the progress.

I am not a racer, nor do I represent Summit Point. Good luck to one and all if bike races are held on this circuit. You can rest asure though, MARRC will be there to help you out....in case you do pay a personal visit to the armco.

It's the stuff they put around the track to keep you from messing up the grass. ;)

They did not use armco at Shenandoah and after the test Kevin suggested several changes then the karters tested suggested changes some that would be nice some that would be required before either would race there. Last word all changes required for racing were being made and some of the wishes as well.  

Now this is not to say that there will not be hazardous areas, I have not been there, but that those that remain were unavoidable as opposed to concrete placed next to track just cause they didn't want to clear a few more trees like the plans had called for which was most of the problems with the circuit in its as tested state.

PS the track runs counter clockwise (opposite of what everyone keeps thinking) and does not run the full straight
