Autobahn Go Kart Track

Does anyone know if they are going to let supermoto bikes ride on that track?

Do they race carts or do anything with that little track?

Nick, I contacted the owners last year about the go kart track. It just looked a little to basic to really have fun on there isn't that many turns. After talking with Colin (local guy who has a lot of experience with sumo racing including AMA) it just doesn't seem like a track that would draw people to ride on. If they put in a dirt section I think that could change.
