MOTO-D visits Pacific Track Time at Buttonwillow Raceway Park

Posted by

Scott from MOTO-D Racing visited Buttonwillow Raceway Park, a 2.68 mile road course featuring 19 turns, elevation changes, and a 3,800 straight away located in Kern County California. Hosted by Pacific Track Time, a premier trackday provider on the West Coast it was an awesome weekend. New to us we enjoyed the tracks smooth surface and riders familar with the track said it was a major improvement over the old surface which had gotten a nickname "Bumpywillow". Bumps be gone and the track had a friendly flow that featured several fast sweepers (turns 8-9, 13, and 15) and some tight technical spots (turns 2 and 4). We especially enjoyed the corner known as "Lost Hill" which was a cresting blind turn (14) that required turn in before seeing the apex and exit. The weather was picture perfect despite being in the mid-90's and our Xtreme Motorcycle Rental (www.xtrememotorcyclerental.com) Suzuki GSXR-600 was fitted with brand new Pirelli Supercorsa's that offered loads of grip. Also on hand was Meen Motorsports (www.meenmotorsports.com) Jake Lewis who had a great year competing in AMA Daytona Sportbike. MOTO-D would like to thank everyone who was there for their support especially the coaching staff of PTT which did a great job making it an inviting atmosphere for all riders.
