No Problem Raceway Open In Louisiana

No Problem Raceway is a new road course/drag strip that has just opened for business in Belle Rose, Louisiana. The new course is 1.8 miles in length, has a 2000-foot straightaway, and 15-turns, two of which are banked 10 degrees. No Problem Raceway appears to have little, if any, elevation changes. <BR><BR>Members of Texas-based road racing clubs CMRA (a CCS affiliate) and RPM (a WERA affiliate) have sent representatives to inspect No Problem Raceway as a possible venue for their organizations. Both came away saying that the track had some safety concerns for motorcyclists, particularly with drag strip retaining walls where the road course joins the drag strip. According to members of the inspection parties, No Problem Raceway has agreed to temporarily move those retaining walls for motorcycle road racing events. RPM has scheduled a date to race at the new track September 14-16, 2001.<BR><BR>For more information on this new track located near Interstate 10 between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana including photos of the track and layout diagrams, go to www.noproblemraceway.com. <BR>
