Area 27 is now fully paved. All 16 corners. All 4.83 kilometres/3 miles. The pavement is a total of 4 inches thick and 12.2 metres wide/40 feet wide. The total elevation change over one lap is 109 metres/357 feet. Turn 7 consists of two parts. 7a is nice. 7b has 11° banking and is absolutely incredible.The huge paddock is also paved along with the pit area – which is a combination of pavement and concrete. A trailer is currently housing the offices but clubhouse planning is in the works. In the not too distant future, members will also have the opportunity to have onsite condo's. Obviously they will be complete with expansive garages! This is among the best of the best tracks in North America.
Coming through Turn 1 this classic Mustang sounded awesome. Landscaping, gravel run off areas, Marshal stands, bundled tires for the soft walls – just a few things that must be worked on during the off season. However, once the pavement is down everyone wanted to be on track. Who could blame them!
The key focus in designing this track was to make the best use of the natural landscape. Even so, tons of material had to be moved in order to effectively set the foundation for the track. As the land was already farmland, the natural habitat had already been disrupted. As a result the required environmental impact studies were not insurmountable.
