Designed to Fool You

A racetrack is another sort of beast. Not much of anything is done for your convenience. The designers have purposely constructed a course that will continue to create changing situations for the rider, to fool and challenge him. Hairpins are put into the most difficult sections, usually after the fastest straight, and "S" turns, or chicanes, often have a slower exit than entry. Corners may baffle you with several camber and radius changes to break your flow and force you into unusual situations. And always, the faster the turns are negotiated, the more difficult they become. There are, however, only five major changes that can be designed into an asphalt road.

That's a spot-on description of Reno-Fernley. God, I effing LOVE that track! Keep your fingers crossed that it's still "alive" next season. Thanks for posting food for thought. :D
