    New Turn 2 at Loudon

    Anyone know what the new turn 2 will actually be for September 6th?

    I see on another forum talk about turn 2 being cut back into the corner workers area and repaved. No one has a clear shot of the final lay out , only shots of temporary cones outlining the corner.

    A new turn 2 would be good for me. I get passed in that damn turn all the time. Maybe they could fix the bumps in 3 while they are working. I get passed in three a lot. Hell 9 and 12 could use some work.

    Why not make it a no-skill dragstrip while they're at it...

    Turn 2 has something in the pavement that is f'ed up ...not sure what it is, but when it's wet, it's the slipperiest piece of pavement I've ever seen.

    Thanks Rob, I couldn't figure out how to say it. The only thing that Loudon has going for it is how quirky it is .They seem to be taking all its personality away.

    The track is slick on that triangle of pavement when it rains. I've crashed there, and I adapt my lines when it rains. When the conditions change, you need to adapt. There are braking bumps on the perfect line into t3. So either work on your suspension to deal with it or do your braking on a different line.

    I'd rather them lower track rental costs so entry fees would drop.
