Next Up Thunderhill West - Bypass - Saturday August 6th
The bypass trims two tenths of a mile off the 2 mile track! Higher average lap speed and the elimination of the slowest section of the track puts more strain on your arms and neck as the number of laps increases and the configuration is reduced to a series of high speed corners with only the front straightaway to gather it back up to attack the sweepers again; all in about a minute per lap!
