Granogue compared to Mabra races

Thinking of trying Granogue in DE. How does this course compare to technically to, for example, Kelley Acres?

I would rate the Granogue course solidly between Kelley Acres and Charm City. Its more technical than charm city but not as much as kelley acres. granogue is a much more competitive race though with lots of racers racing down a cat to avoid the heavy hitters in their normal class. In that regard its much closer to charm city than kelley acres.

its a wonderful race and one of the jewels of our region because of the talent that shows up and that its on a private land.
