Re: new orleans to pensacola

Excellent pocket bike track! The facilities are basically abandoned, but the track itself is still in great shape, and just about the right size for pocketbikes. Pavement is excellent shape and kept clean, curves are cambered, it has both left and right hand turns, and it's slightly hilly, even. Mowed pasture grass all around the track, no obstacles in case of a crash, and no tires or hay bales needed. Very nice.

The club that races there is a mini road race club, really nice group of folks too. Their classes go up to 550 four stroke, but no one runs bikes that big there, the track is too small. Most of them run in the class that goes up to 150 four stroke / 85 two stroke.

They have a class for which our pocketbikes would qualify, but it's not a very good fit. However, they said they would create a new class for us if enough show up, and one of the members already has a Cag. Even if only one or two show up, we would still be able to run on the track, we just wouldn't have a class race.

Cheap, too, 20 bucks membership, plus 20 bucks a day track fee. Track day Saturday, race day Sunday, with plenty of practice time both days, weather permitting. Next event Aug 13 - 14.

Forgot to mention - outside the fence, and in the pit area, and over the little set of bleachers, there are plenty of shade trees. Quite a plus in South Mississippi in August!

The races are on! Yo, DBNinja, what happened? We txtd Sat, u no sho Sun. I was there both days, we had a blast. The boat was a no show, so I was able to attend.

I'll be there for track day Aug 13, and race day Aug 14, with my big bad Blata. Wassa matta, ya skeert? I wouldn't be, I've never had it on a track before. Here's your chance to smoke me and show what that Polini can do!

Any other pocket bikers in the area are welcome. Bring your bike and gear, and dig this way cool track. You'll meet a great bunch of folks.

Re: new orleans to pensacola

with only a few races left in thier current season i finally got all my race attire in and am ready to rip this track, maniac you are mine!

we still could use a few more bikes to make pocketbike a solid class on the schedule. saucier MS isnt that far from new orleans or mobile so come take advantage and lets make something happen.

Ha! We'll see about that, Polini Guy! Oh, wait, you were there last time. You saw me on the track, didn't you? Never mind.

Bring it on, pocketbikers!
