We are always looking at ways to improve the track layout as well as keep it as safe as possible.

When turn 3 (transition from oval to infield) was designed, consideration was given to the fact karts would be coming off a 3/4 mile stretch of wide open throttle and turning sharply into the infield. It was decided to create the turn in such a manner as to slow the karts considerably before entering the infield and giving those who were not able to slow enough room to safely run off. If you were to straighten turn 3 you have the entire back stretch of the oval to regain control and get back racing again.

When setting up the track this Thursday we will look at the turn discuss whats been talked about here and see if there are ways to improve it.

As for the brake markers, we will look into what we can do to improve those as well.
