Pala Raceway National Track 5-21-11

I was the first guy out on a freshly-prepped Pala Raceway National Track today. Conditions were perfect and it wasn't crowded all day. Shot with my HD Go Pro Motorsports Hero helmet camera.

awesome, i need to start getting there earlier before it gets all chewed up. Seemed like there was a fair amount of people there, it's funny how people will sit and wait for someone else to be the first person out on the track.

Not me, I can't WAIT to get out there and I LOVE a fresh track. :smirk:

Great video and awesome track!

How big are some of the larger table tops? There is one in particular that looks HUGE @ 4:13 & 6:55. Looks like you have a pretty good run at it and still come up short!

I'm not sure how long it is but I'm hitting it in 5th gear on my 250F. I used to clear it cleanly all the time but then they added a dip/small bump thingy right before it and it robs your momentun for a split second, making it very difficult to clear.

Looking good out there! I can't wait till July to ride Pala!

another cool video Steve, always look forward to your latest ride..

looks good, you should record in hd, its lovely.

A+ and Thanks again for sharing.

It is always fun being the first one to make tracks, kind of like fresh powder when skiing : )

I went this past thursday and I had such a hard time trying to get that track down because there was sooooooooooooo many people and sooooo many pros!! I counted 12 pros! The pros lines on that track are insane and they dont care who you are they will take you out if youre in their way. I didnt have a good first experience, so when is the best day to go? when is there the least amount of people?

Well I chose the day of the Hangtown National, ensuring no top-level Pros would be there. :smirk: But I also rode it last week when almost ALL the Pros were there but I just got there at 8:30 and hit the track early. Most of the fast guys come later and by then I have an hour of riding in.

Next weekend I will be racing on the National track.

That dirt looked so ridiculous! Im having flashbacks of my road trip down there last year from Sacramento. Stood for a week and hit Milestone and Pala twice. Tracks of epic proportions.. Im moving down there after college, its set. :smirk: Great Vid!
