Anyone have a link to a track map of the TMS 2.3 mile CCW course?

I'm guessing the answer here is no, Jerry. I sure don't.

Have you tried looking for satellite imagry? :lol:

TMS sent me a track map. However is was a track map with all the possible track surfaces. It did not show the specific course to be used. Guess I'll have to wait until the time gets closer and hope the sponsoring region has the info in the race packet.

Oh well.

Here's a track map from some data a customer sent me of TMS23CCW

I've attached a PDF of the screen shot.

Hopefully it helps a little.

The thing about maps from data systems is that they are the of the driven line not of the track itself which is why they sometimes look a little odd.

Cheers,

That and the map that TMS sent will get me what I need. Thanks.

7/8ths of the oval and mostly left turns. Oh well, it will be something different.

Bring a book or a Gameboy, there's nothing to do for a few minutes every lap. :yawn:

Chris,

Not your favorite track, huh?

Not in the least; paved paddock and fresh urinal cakes just aren't in my "top 10 things I require in a good racetrack".

The facilities are among the best I&#39;ve ever seen. The cost of the services are among the highest I&#39;ve ever dealt with. The track is one of the challenging courses I&#39;ve driven due to it&#39;s simplicity. Diving off the oval onto the rough-as-hell apron is intimidating. The infield is entertaining. Probably 30-35 seconds of a lap are fun. All else is just another lap...unless you screw yourself or someone else up. Then it&#39;s a hand full. <_<

Can the banking used or do they keep us down on the apron?

NASCAR 1&2 they always shove us onto the apron. Last 2 times they&#39;ve allowed us on the banking in 3&4.

The apron for 1&2 are pretty entertaining, I do have to admit. The rest of the track is a snoozefest. I guess that&#39;s why most people don&#39;t call TWS a roval, huh? :D

TWS has done some repairs on the oval. Last race they had some formula cars running the big oval to check if it was safe for them to run. We may see some of the roval configs in use in the next year or two.
