That would be scary riding with karts especially cause it looks like those are kids.

That doesn't look like a very safety oriented track. The poles Brian mentioned, plus the bikes with the carts at the same time, plus the lights aren't taped up and the mirrors are still on the bikes.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I think the fast guys on carts run around or under a minute lap times at BHF. At RA cars smoke the fastest bike laptimes, I know for a fact that the open wheeled cars run under 2 minutes there.

Ron? Where did that photo come from?

My favorite is the guy "headed to the store for milk" on the GSXR in the back.

My guess is this was some sort of toned down lap around the track (like when they allow two up laps with some orgs)...can't imagine they would let bikes like that and kids on carts run together....maybe the guy getting the 'milk' is one of the kid's dad or something, otherwise he does need some serious help with his form
