road atlanta or barber

I am just trying to to decide on where to do my next trackday.
I could do barber again or try road atlanta, I do like barber, and will go there again but I would also like to try something new.

Anyone been to road atlanta? Is the track as bad as I hear it is?

I love Road A. It's FAST. Can't wait to go back! I'll be doing the DiSalvo school there this year.

Barber is only about an hour from my house. Cool track.

I always ride barber cause I'm so close. But I agree with Ramm... I can't wait to do Road Atl again. Its an awesome crazy fast track. Who you doing it with? And when?

I am looking at going with Nesba on 6/23 6/24.
When you say crazy fast, is there any part of Barber or VIR full that is close to the same type of pace? I like going fast but prefer technical tracks more.

Can't speak for VIR but Barber is no where near the speeds of Road Atlanta. It is technical in a way of blind turns. The turns themselves aren't very technical...if that makes sense?

Road Atlanta (if you get a decent drive out of T7) you will top your bike out. Also, turn 1 off the front straight your suspension is under so much load it feels like your bike is going to bottom out and the G's push down on your body. Cool feeling.

Re: road atlanta or barber

well then I guess I will have a go at RA in June, It sounds like it should be a "cool feeling"

Anyone have any R6 vids on youtube from RA?

I like the back straight and topping the bike out. I would be doing that weekend too with NESBA. You would love road Atl. Turns 3-8 is pretty technical. Gotta get those right to flow thru with ease and quickness.

Re: road atlanta or barber
