I definately liked the layout... gave the ability to have a marshall inside the track as well as some "not so much" in and outs on the chicane... I think we have hit it as well on length of back straight as its giving both the fast cars an area to make up time as well as cars who may be not so fast to hold their own...

I think it was a good mix of technical areas and speed zones where the different cars and drivers could express their unique abilty and also how to set a car up for what and how to drive it to make the most of the track.

My car has straightline speed, but that is only so good if you can hold it into the turn and then get it to respond in the turns and able to pass people in the technical area. the straightaway is just to lengthen the lead, or catch up to slower traffic to get inside them for the pass.

I felt bad cause I got into the ass-end of Phils car in a turn and June & I mixed it up also (into Pattys lap) but other than that there was good racing!

It was pretty challenging for me, being a newbie, but it was fun and I do like that it hasn't been the same track twice!
