Barber turned out to be one of the most amazing places I've ever visited. The museum, track, landscape, and the people we met were incredible. We met people from Florida, Tennesse, New Jersey, Lousianna, Ohio, North Carolina, Georgia, and the list goes on. The whole facility was beautiful and almost too good to be true. If you guys have the time and money, I would totally recommend that you head out to Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama. The museum itself is worth the trip IMO.
Well we visited the museum on Friday and hit the track on Saturday and Sunday. Track temps reached 108 on Saturday and about 105 on Sunday. We had a rough start to the trackday on Saturday with 4 crashes in the second session of the day. A few guys were riding way over their heads but we got rid of them early in the day. One guy almost took me out going into turn 1 but I was lucky that his bike missed hitting me. The guy was tumbling all over the place and I missed running him over by inches, no joke. Dave(5axis) and his bro, Mike, had a good laugh the rest of the day about this. I guess the joke was that I was so slow that even a guy sliding on his ass passed me. Whatever guys that's not funny
LOL JK Despite the heat and the close call, the weekend turned out to be almost perfect.
Big thanks to Dave(5axis) and his bro, Mike, for providing Ashwin and I a ride down there. I don't get to travel much so I really appreciate everything you guys did for us. Also, thanks for helping me out with my body position and for making me laugh the whole weekend. My body position is still really bad but I promise I'll work on it.
Here are some pics for you all to see. If you can't head out to this place, at least you can get an idea of how nice this place is.
