"No Haybales Required"

ABOUT OUR DESIGNS

We strive to design tracks that are challenging, fun, flowing with a nice rhythm. All of our tracks are popular with both the motorcycle racers and auto racers. One of our track owners only hosts motorcycle races at his facility, but they are always being asked, by car racers, to use their facility.

One of our best known and popular features, we design in, is safe functional pit-in and pit-out lanes. Our pit-ins & pit outs allow racers to enter or exit the track during hot track situations. Pit-outs are designed to allow the racer to enter the hot track without being dumped directly on to the active race line. The same with our pit-in designs, the racers will move off the active race line before slowing down to pit.

Another key feature of my tracks is that no haybales, tire walls or air fences are required. Those types of barriers are just stop gap measures, to cover a design flaw. The total number of soft barriers, required for all of my tracks combined, is zero!
