May 5th Course Feedback! Nice Job....

Post by Pete Loney » Mon May 06, 2019 3:21 pm

Anthony and setup team, overall nice job! Loved the flow and challenge of the wide open skid pad.

I liked the added variety/changes between Saturday versus Sunday.

The cross over reminded me of some older Craig Angel tricks he would throw in :)

Commentary: The people chalking the boxes felt a bit abused when they heard that we almost used all the cones in the trailer.
Also, not sure if this was changeable layout wise, but we were one left hand turn shy of being a nascar course on Sunday. i.e. all right hand turns.
Next time, if the layout lends it self, choose a CCW loop against a CW course.
My left front tire will appreciate that :)

Thank you for the feedback. While I designed it I didnt set it up. Typically I add cones for the newer folks, but when I do setup we only box the cones it's possible to hit, like the last 4-5 in a wall.

My priority was balanced (slightly towards power in this case), and to introduce some new elements. I'll think of some ways to get some different loops in contrary directions.
