Road America, Unabridged
Kind of old news but for those that don't know....
Road America has undergone a major change over the winter. The bridge that spanned Turn 13, making it a blind, spooky corner with zero runoff, is GONE! Access to the infield will now be gained through a tunnel beneath the straight section of track between Turns 13 and 14. In addition, much work has been done to improve the aprons and rumble strips around the course, and Turn 1 is being redone to remove “The Bump.” (Not actually a named feature of the track, but if you’ve ridden turn one at the limit, you know about “The Bump….”) Together these changes should make a great track even better! Not to start any rumors, but in the past, the bridge at 13 has always been the major objection of a certain international motorcycle racing series when they considered holding an event at Road America….
