Full course ACC

Trackdaymag.com

The Video they have is Full Course.

If you are new to the ACC track, print out a map of the course so you can figure out where you are when you are watching.

I'm sure there are plenty on Youtube too.

If you want to ride the course.....Memorial Day weekend STT runs North course on Saturday, South Course on Sunday, and FULL Course on Monday. AAAAAAAND, in two weeks, June 4th, STT is running full course at ACC. ( If we get 65 riders signed up.)

See Ya there!

The video is what I was looking for thanks!

Yep doing the full course on Monday for the 1st time.

I've been away from the track for some years but have ridden the north and south about 6-7 years ago each a couple of times.

I was asking as each track has its nuiances. Putnam comes to mind as it gets one side if the tire warmed up before the other and sends people over the bars that forget (or don't know) this. So I guess this is what I'm asking for at this course as well

Thanks a bunch

Worst trap is 1:32 ..... Chicane ..... It's slow, insure you set speed correctly.

Big bikes wheelie pretty good when you go from South track to North track 1:47

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-jvB...1&feature=plcp < Rear Camera View... this is funny. I got yelled at a couple times and this is one where I get reamed for not slowing down after the checkered. I was slowing down but not that much "thats not the rule" he said.

I was there last Sunday. I toned it down some Just drove from Atlanta (did the wera road atlanta cyclefest) It's funny how unbearably cocky I can be.... some self mocking humor.

Thanks.

I feel like Im getting faster and smoother. Now I want to work on getting off the bike more and not so much creating a heavy lean angle.
