David, would you by any chance have a pic of the layout of the entire course? I'm curious what the course "in the infield" of an oval "stadium" looks like.

What I had meant was an aerial photograph of the layout - or something which would go somewhat towards putting in pictures what many riders have commented about how, although the track is basically limited to an "infield," the vastness of the complex as a whole "releases" the infield track from what one might presume would be a claustrophobic atmosphere.

Anyway, I will try to find an image somewhere...

I rode the track yesterday (charity ride) and there's nothing claustrophobic about it. If anything, it's bloody huge, especially compared to something like Virignia International Raceway.

OK, so it was supposed to be calm quiet ride, except for three of us (1098, RC51, and me on my '69 Bonneville cafe racer) who quietly hung back so we'd be forced to catch up with the group. I've got a lot of admiration for those guys, I was having trouble at 50-60 on a couple of those corners.
