This day was the most disturbing I have ever experienced on a track event. It was, in essence, everything that detractors of track driving prattle on about; and an object lesson in how wrong things can go if safety is not kept upon its usual pedestal.
Word leaked around the track community about this day. I heard from another vendor that the scuttlebutt was the cones were set up wrong, but that is nonsense. When the first 5 people zig off the side of Magic Mountain you'd think that would be enough to teach an intelligent grownup to exercise some caution. And I saw a guy go so far off course it was questionable if he was still even on the property.
I won't be back to this track unless its run by a different vendor. NASA runs here a lot and I'll look to them to run Buttonwillow, which is otherwise a nice, low-impact, technical course.
