A Racer's Excellent Adventure At New Track In Florida

This just in from David Roy, Ducati North America Manager of Racing Operations, and a former AMA Pro Thunder racer:<BR><BR><BR>"I went to the new North Florida Motorsports Park track this Sunday for a few laps on my 996. The track design is quite technical with a few high-lean, high-speed corners, that make you pucker pretty good, and every corner has lots of run-off.<BR><BR>"Their facilities are still a bit primitive but it looks like they are working on them daily. Overall it is probably one of the most fun tracks I have ridden in awhile, and most likely has the best track surface in the U.S., no seams, no patches, no concrete.<BR><BR>"Unofficially I set a new track record of 1:21.972 hand-timed by Bill Weber, or 1:22:002 by my wife Debbie, or 1:21.9 on my lap timer. I don't know if you are supposed to average them or take the lowest?"
