I don't think I'm going back to BW this season. I'm saving up for two days at Laguna though

I need to get out there and give it a shot, but I hear nothing but bad at Bumpy Willow.

You guys need to get down to some of the other SoCal tracks!

Yesterday was a great day!

My first day in the intermediate group...definitely one of the slower one but I feel like that is where I belong for sure. So glad we had a garage as it was a HOT day! But overall one of my (if not the) best day I have had out at the track.

Then you are talking to the wrong people!

The only negative is that is is super bumpy...but you learn where the bumps are and which ones to not worry about. Plus, their facilities are really great for the price.

I used to dislike Buttonwillow when I first started tracking my car there but now it is my favorite. I have no interest in Big Willow, Streets weather is just too unpredictable, California Speedway (and Laguna) are too expensive...especially since my husband and I both go! and we have yet to get out to Chuckwalla. We keep saying we will but it just has not happened yet...maybe November.

The weather at Willow Springs is totally predictable! If it's summer it will be hot as balls. If it's anything other than summer, it will cold as a witch's titty and ridiculously windy.

I really need to give Buttonwillow a shot and form my own opinion. There's a bunch of tracks that are closer that are similarly priced and not notoriously bumpy though - so it's kind of a tough sell.

Tracktactics has been having some KILLER deals on days at Auto Club lately, which make it comparable to other tracks (a specially if you're coming for the whole weekend). You should try to get out there - it's a really fun track with great facilities. Also, no bumps.
