if you have an RV and you want to hook it up, that's what the RV spots for. If you don't have an RV and you just want a wall outlet, go in on a garage rental with someone. Otherwise people use generators.

Ok, thanks Dub.
Will be bringing toy hauler and was wondering if there is room in the pits to set up or if I need to reserve a rv spot.

Plenty of room in the paddock, just no hookups unless you pay for an RV spot.

Do they run paddock lights whole night like Sonoma does? Or it gets to normal level of darkness that you can sleep and doesn't feel like you're in middle of stadium?

Quick Review:

Carters at the Track we`re fucking amazing. (excuse the language). The registration was seamless, the tech inspection was awesome as they had about 8-10 guys working the tech.

The riders meeting was the SHORTEST yet most informative meeting ever. Straight to the point. I loved that part.

You Norcal Folk can keep the shiny side up as we only had ONE red flag ending a B- session. I was riding B+ all day so it cut into our time for about 2 minutes however the response team was quick and proactive. I appreciate the small battles I had with a few Ducati`s and ZX10`s.

Too bad Carters only came around once down to Buttonwillow. I`m thinking I need to make the long haul and ride T-Hill this year with you all.

Doooooo it! T-hill is great—east side is more open, west side is tighter—both sides have elevation changes. Our group of north-north Cali peeps had a blast at BW—one in A-group and two in B-. Our first trip to this track was a success! Such a very different track with minimal elevation changes! Personally, I went from wandering aimlessly day one to “sorta” getting it on day two. Discussion/analysis in our pit was comical since ya’ll name your corners rather than number them....track maps were essential. We’ll be back!!

Buttonwillow was my first track via Cali Trackdays March 11th of this year. I was a turd on my GSXR 750 lol. This weekend I hit a personal best of 2:05 at Buttonwillow(only 6 track days in, second time on my new tracked R1). I had so much fun with you guys.

About T-Hill, I`ll need to find lodging options for a weekend. Im not one for camping LOL. any suggestions?

Awesome.

I also met a Norcal rider from Richmond. He was on a green and black ZX10R with white wheels and a Monsters Inc. HJC. He offered lodging at his house(what a guy!).

Motel 6 is not bad, it's a good Motel 6. AC works, room is clean, dogs allowed. Great price.
