Thunderhill Oct 6, 2007

Hey all, just wondering if anyone is gonna make it to the Thunderhill track in northern cali (willows) on )ct 6, 2007. My brother and I are going to be their and we were wondering if anyone from this forum is going to show up. Also this is our first time riding at thunderhill because we recently moved from san diego to Lodi, ca . I have really only ridden the southern california tracks ( fontana (both infield and big track, willow springs (both big willow and the streets of willow, and buttonwillow), Im wondering how thunderhill is going to stack up against other tracks. I hear its really big and has nice rfacilities. Anyway, hope to see some of you out there!!

Re: Thunderhill Oct 6, 2007

Thill is ****ing awesome! its the only track i go to because laguna and infineon are too expensive and dont work with my schedule, the track is so ****ing smooth, its wide and theres plenty of run off if something happens. ive been able to save it twice. its a pretty fast track and has a nice flow to it. so cal tracks suck....youll love our nor cal tracks. i wish i could go but im done for the season...moving in oct and ill need a new set of tires if i do. whos it with? Keigwins also puts on a pretty good event i just wont ride with them anymore because i bought a 2 day ticket and crashed the 1st lap of the 1st day and Lance wouldnt help me out with a refund or anything and usually hes good about things like that

Well I'll be there for the first time on October 2nd and 3rd with PSSR. I've heard nothing but great things about the track. I'll try to get a review up in time for your day on the 6th.

theres only 2 tight turns, T5 and T11. your line is definitely more important than your speed cuz your not gonna drop any time there so dont even try. T5 aka "the Cyclone" will bite hard if you take the wrong line...a lot of crashes happen for 1st timers there. T11 is also a slow late entrance turn and if you dont take the right line youll drift wide and mess up your lines through the esses and your drive down the back straight. if you want a tight technical track id suggest infineon.
