I've seen the Facebook pictures but no one will share if it a 100% repave or just certain sections.

 

At any rate, hopefully I will get some time to try out the new car soon!

Yeah, kind of funny. You'd think they'd be open about it but they seem to flat out ignore the question. People are funny.

Exciting news, I just hope they do it right and not cut corners.

I can tell from the photos it's only sections being repaved.  If it were the entire track, they would basically do one 'lane' at a time all the way around.    What I've seen is they are doing sections track-wide.

I concur. I'm curious if they are addressing the soil issues that deformed the track in the first place.

Almost certainly not. 

 

I will be interested to hear which parts got a new skin and how much difference it made.

Repave is no fun!

 

 

My RSR would basically wheel hop all the way up the hill.

 

I also came into 7 one time and missed the brake pedal completely I was bouncing around so much.  In a panic I pounced the brake pedal and realized I could take the corner deeper :-)

Not exactly how I wanted to learn that.  I don't think those seats ever quite came out clean.

Phillip says the repaving will be done by the chumpcar race in two weeks! We shall see. We get to learn a new track!

According to a post on Facebook

 

T2-T3, top of the side straight, T5, T6, between T8 and T9, and T11.

 

Can't wait to get out there!

Nice, get any video?! 

I have a rule that I never run without video. Except this time. I forgot to empty the recycle bin after freeing up space on my SD card. So nope. Sorry!

 

There's a bit of oil down, and it's still not COTA smooth, and we'll see how long the smoothness lasts, but I cut a couple of seconds off my recent lap times. And there was more to be had (for example I never went as fast through track out of T8 through T10 as I could have, because I need do some mental reprogramming). Should be pretty quick as it cures. The improvement at the moment is huge, though. Should be really good going CCW, too.

Dang, I need to get out there before it turns into the moon surface again. I've never driven it when it wasn't a bumpfest.
