A few roads? Try a whole state full of great roads, a handful of which end up right at this location. Pretty sweet, hope they do it right. Can't believe I didn't know about this one.

The information in the link talks about track rentals and hosting club racing events. From that information i'd say "not like autobahn".

Wow, that's quite a generalization and I don't appreciate it, having lived in KY for many years.

Talking Smoe Bluegrass Track Day INFORMATION

We have been getting a ton of questions about the new track in Northern KY, Bluegrass Motorsports Park (BMP)

Below is the 2009 weekend schedule at Bluegrass Motorsports Park
All events are hosted by Sportbike Track Time.com through our partnership with BMP

This awesome new venue has a ton of elevation change, a straight long enough to land a jet on and a great combination of fast and slower turns. WERA is holding a National at Bluegrass in June so our April or May events offer a good opportunity to learn an "all new" venue (in addition to the WERA Friday practice round).

We will also be adding some "Wide Open Wednesday's" to our schedule as well. These days offer six uninterupted hours (noon till 6PM) of open track for one low price. So plan your sick days now....

2009 Weekend Schedule..... Enjoy

APRIL
11 & 12 (Bluegrass Grand Opening)
MAY
30 & 31
JUNE
20 & 21
JULY
11 & 12
AUGUST
15 & 16
SEPTEMBER
7 & 8
OCTOBER
3 & 4
