You should consider doing the second loop for improved safety.  

 

The second loop would do two things.

1. Slow speeds at the transition onto the banking that killed 2 cars last year by near head-ons into the wall

2. slow terminal velocity by reducing initial velocity on the oval.

Yes, I know I drew the roval entrance incorrectly on 2 of them.
waiting for a call back from Chisek. then have to get with chelsey as it is her race.

 

UPDATE: this is the config we will race. the 2nd inner loop is not an option per the track.
I will redo the art

As a car that hit the wall there, I  think Huggy is onto something.

This track is a car eater and not very fun anyway.   I will still come up and party if it happens!

Lies. Charlotte is a fracking awesome track. Yes, it takes balls of steel to go fast. But it rewards those that risk it all!
It does take skill. But it's in my top 5 list of tracks

I agree it takes balls.

 

It isn't fun. It doesn't flow.  It's pieced together...

 

The banking in 3 and 4 is kinda cool.  The rest is meh.

I stand corrected. We are racing the inner loop. I will redo the art work.

ewwwww.  Glad I'm not going.  Never discussed as a Board, that's for sure.
