Official turn 1 and 7 BHF Repair - Update!

From representative of BHF ---->


"With regards to the track condition in Turns 1 and Turn 7:

BFR has hired a consultant, met with the engineers multiple times, sent the mix to a laboratory for a test analysis.

The track will be closed July 16-19 for the necessary repairs.

We appreciate everyone’s patience with regards to this manner."

The only way that track is going to be fixed is if they don't let cars on it. period. Thats there own fault for mot letting it cure long enough. Of they pour cement like they did in the bus stop.

Glad they are going to try and fix it. I sure hope they get it right this time. Kind of sucks for those of us racing this weekend though, not to mention the repave happens 2 days before the next CCS weekend so there wont be any rubber down on the new pavement yet, gonna be sketchy both weekends I'm guessing.

I went there today and told them how to do it.





No all jokes asside, it will bring laptimes down about 2-4 dec. this weekend. you have to watch your line, the torn up part is not the worst on the whole thing, it seems like the seams are now really slippy.

I believe that if they repave the whole corner and not just the little patch, it will be fine with Asphalt. Concrete should cure about 20 days in this kind of application.

How long does it need to cure? I thought it had a few months.

Yeah, the seams suck. After pushing the front a few times on the seam in 7 I just started to tiptoe. It's still the same track for everyone but now I have to curse the dirty bike guys that don't mind it.

Not so bad for us slow guys. I just turn in later, clench my butt cheeks as I cut across the rough on the way in, then dont hit the crap on the way out on throttle.

you can help yourself on the seam in 1, just pull a wheelie and you are one running over it on one wheel only...

Or us that raced on it before it was totally repaved for the 2003 season. Compared to how it USED to be, even with the problems in 1 & 7 its still much better than it was then.

You just got to learn to adapt to track conditions. Not every track has a perfect smooth surface. Top guys will still go fast.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

in it's current state it's really a small issue. i ran over the worst part yesterday during an OOPS moment and it was fine. the seams seem to have improved and i had little issue. my question is: is the repair to the repair going to be the same exact section? or will they replace a larger piece? also i am concerned about taking the clinic the next day...

IL state police had a training day there right after it was paved with no cure time.

Why is this even a sticky???

1 and 7 are now "one line turns" which will make for some interresting race starts .... I'm sure to be watching T1 at all the MW races...
