A huge thank you goes out to Faynisha from Flagging by Faynisha and her entire crew that made my experience feel really special.
I really think I got VIP treatment this year because of the awesome station assignments over the weekend.
Day 1: Turn 8 which reminded me a little of the Corkscrew at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Though not as dramatic of a drop, it is still quite an elevation change after a blind apex going into the corner.
(the Ambulance flag wasn’t used this weekend but as this is a very Motorcycle friendly course it was only appropriate to pose with it).
Day 2: Turn 13 and another blind corner that saw a ton of action of cars overcooking it and losing control in our corner.
An elevated station with good views out towards the front straight, the straight between 4 and 6 and 6 and 7, and of course 10 to us.
Day 3: Race Day: Turn 6 the cherry on top station. It’s the hairpin corner that saw a ton of excitement over the weekend. And we too got some opportunities to wave the yellow flag. Nothing too crazy, but exciting nonetheless.
I had a wonderful time and I appreciate this opportunity more than anything. Events like this make you want to come back over and over again and tell everyone I know how great Southern hospitality is.
