This is the track and "'Murrican Urn" post. Blackhawk is a very agreeable place at which to watch racing. Or, for that matter, to drive. I enjoyed my HSAX days there. BFR is not that fast in a low-powered street car (Turn 5 is the only fast corner) or, for that matter, that demanding to learn. I was once told that the Newman-Haas CART team tested at Blackhawk. I can't imagine why, or what they got out of it. A CART race car could barely get underway at Blackhawk, and it's not especially hard on brakes. Maybe N-H used it for initial shake down of a new/rebuilt car.
|Nowhere near as fast as the car above, but still fun. The glory days of Trans Am still pull my chain.|
