whats your favorite track and Why?

I was asked what my favorite track is and why and I thought about it. There needs to be a metric for determining that. In the seventh grade we as north Americans at least learn to categorize things. So I couldn't stop thinking about it and added it to my blog as a post. Check it out.


Here is my thoughts on Barber for example....
Barber needs to be scaled up in AutoCAD 30 percent. I love Barber though! It's probably the most expensive track to rent for a track day organization. Is that true? Its got great traction in the rain but there are some standing water spots even rivers crossing the track. You will hydroplane each lap to win in the rain there so get used to that if you want to go fast in the rain at Barber. T1 could use some more run off maybe? Museum and paddock make Barber A Class! Barber makes one forget that Martin Luther King was shot and killed in Birmingham. Maybe I should not have mentioned that part?
