Race Tracks


Anyone else fly by race tracks?

Huge open fields, long stretches of straight tar(asphalt)
It's also HUUUGGEE so there's very little wind obstruction

It's awesome!:smilegrin:

It's a kinda "public" race track, and thus is hardly used for racing, we had no problems getting in as it's used by cyclists as training(but not the main track) and its also a "family fun zone"

We have a bunch of airports around here, never thought of those :)

I rode at an abandoned Russian mig base (Groß Dölln) turned into a race track when I flew my Montana 6 for the first time. There was a motorcycle racing club tearing it up on the main track–made it kinda loud.
