Steamroller at the track? (Kenosha)

I assume that this is fine? Obviously it's not pure track geometry, but on the other hand it's Kenosha, and from what I can tell it's pretty tame banking-wise compared to most of the other tracks. Just throw on some clipless pedals and take off the brake and I should be good to go, right?

Also does anybody know if they have a new racer clinic or anything like that at Kenosha? Their website is really old and the WCA site doesn't have much either.

Should be ok as long as you have track dropouts and no quick releases on the wheels. Geometry/weight etc won't be an issue for learner races. A friend has done ok on a Soma Rush, which is iirc pretty similar.
