Washington Pacific Raceways off road series?

Recommended Posts

In the schedule I picked up from Pacific Raceways last time I was there I noticed in the Motocross Track section it shows a "off road race" in November and a series of "Moto GP" races in November and December. I heard they have trails around the motocross track. Does anyone know anything about these races? I cant find any info on their website. Would be worth trying if its only 20 minutes away....

Sound like its a mix of track/trail. There is an email contact on the flyer. I emailed him with a few questions and he got back to me right away.

What is the soil like at this place.  Does is handle the rain?  I would expect wet and mud, but to be more specific I want to avoid a clay based, snot fest, that is more survival than race.

 

Thanks in advance.

It is a full on mix of racing, the course will be around 10 min lap times according to Lance Smail, and with him building it you had better believe it will be amazing it is supposed to be a mix of MX, trails, and part road course. There is plenty of trails on the Pacific Raceway grounds. They used to run the Nasty Wench race and it was nuts. They also used to run a round of the WORCS national series out there.

Pretty much completely different than rimrock. :)

Sounds excellent- I dont mind the wet.  But I do have a hatred of nothing but wet clay - i.e. Washougal when it rains hard

 

Thinking I may have to hit some of these races.

What is the difference between c and d class. I ride mid pack amateur on the oregon GP series. Would I race b class in this race or c class? I'm absolutely horrid on the moto track.

I raced it. It was basically the motocross track with a section that went through some trees and then a grass section I guess I would call it. Really muddy, but fun. Entry was less cause they said something about not being able to use a part of the course.
