Just a few questions for anyone who knows:

Is the WSB round being run alongside the AMA weekend there?

Are both tracks using the same layout?

Is the track good for racing? I caught some of the AMA races there last year and it was pretty damn good (compared to usual standards).

Are any members going? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

You can see what the layout is if you go directly to WSBK site. If you go to Miller
Sports Park site, they will show you the entire track with its potential configurations but NOT the layout that they will use for WSBK/AMA.

Yes, both series will have their weekend side by side. Saturday will have AMA Superstock & Formula Extreme 600s with WSBK practice and quals. Sunday will have AMA Superbike (one race only) and Supersport, WSBK will have both races.

Thanks for replying, even though we're currently going through a rough patch. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

Be interesting to see the lap times, and if any wildcards will happen (very unlikely).

I have heard that the AMA ans WSBK will use different track layouts because of the belief that a Suzuki AMA bike would trounce the WSBK lap times.

I thought AMA bikes ran much closer to stock regulations than WSB bikes? I'm thinking that due to the fact Ducati were so uncompetitive.

Or are the Dunlops Yoshi run THAT good?

^^^ I am going to correct a common misconception about Ducati being uncompetitive. Ducati were not uncompetitive, Neil hodgson and Ben Bostrom were uncompetitive. I will bet my left testicle that if you put Troy Bayliss on the same bike at the same time he would have been fighting for the championship. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif[/img]

I thought hodgeman did alright and got a few podiums. Regardless, do you know how the technical regs compare to the world champs?
