NESBA Roll Call: Blackhawk 4/14-15/07

So, it looks like it is just around the corner folks! End of winter, or at least the end of the NESBA hibernation in the Midwest. I was just curious who was going to Blackhawk Farms for the first Midwest event of the year?

Blackhawk is a very popular track and registration limits have been further reduced this year to provide more open track for folks. If you are interested, register soon in case it sells out. And remember, even if you aren't riding on the track, this is a GREAT weekend to come out and meet everyone, hang out, eat and get to know everyone. For example, Odysseys isn't riding, but he will be coming out just to hang with everyone.

So, back to the Roll Call part. If you could list handle, name, bike, days and class, it would be great for those of us who don't know each other yet. For those of you that want to pit together, the CLSB crew normally pits near Turn 5. RonHix and I will be pitted at the Tech Shed (right near T5) as always. Look for the White/Silver RV and the White 32' Trailer.

For those of you that don't know, Blackhawk is considered by many CLSBers to be our home track. This is a short and tight track that is an absolute blast for the beginner and for the expert rider.

More importantly, Blackhawk events are not just about the daytime. We have cookouts on Saturday night, usually a camp fire, and a ton of fun. Plan on camping out at Blackhawk if you can, or staying nearby. If you are only riding Sunday, be sure to come Saturday afternoon so that you don't miss out on the festivities.

Here is a map that I modified of Blackhawk. For more detail, click on the image.



Here are VIDEOS from last July of CLSB members riding at Blackhawk Farms. These videos can be both used to get an idea of what the track and lines are, but also to look at what you should and should not be doing in terms of riding form.

Here is a LIST of CLSB NESBA riders that you may want to print out and bring with you. It is great to have names, numbers and bike info to try to figure out who you are pitted next to, who you are riding with, or even who you are watching out there in the other groups.

From the NESBA Midwest Track Info sticky:

Blackhawk Farms
South Beloit, WI
Lodging: Most of the NESBA folks camp on-site. Camping for the weekend is FREE. Shower and bathroom facilities are available, power is available for $25 for the weekend. Camping is in the paddock area, CLSB usually tries to gather near between turns 4 and 5. We try to have a nice cookout on Saturday nights, bring your food to cook and liquid to consume. if you want to hotel it, Comfort Inn is nearby.
Description: 1.95 miles, 7 turns. This is a flowing and TIGHT technical track. Two small straights and hard braking technical sections. This is a very popular track and hosts many CCS racing events.
Repaved in 2006, this track is a blast, and has the most relaxed feeling of any of the NESBA weekends in the Midwest.
Track Map
Track Record: 1:09.6 by Mark Junge, prior record 1'09.89" by Larry Denning
Lap record may have fallen last year, I need to check.

It is going to be a blast!

So, post up if you are going.
