First "hilly" crit for me.. Keihanna

Running counter clockwise, points F to G is 300 meters at 6% through corner #3. This will be a new type of race for me. Only 9 laps for 21 km and some change. Half hour of pain in my future!

If the start is also the finish, I would have to say it's a very odd course. Sprinting down a hill to the finish just seems wrong.

And dangerous. A Crit I did a few months back at a short but very step hill that went into the final turn. To be honest I was more focused on not dying then I was about placing, and that's saying something.

Keihanna? Is that somewhere in Kansai? If it is, how do I sign up if it's not too late?

Yep.... it's.. um.

Here's the application form. I think past the deadline but you might still be able to get in if you work through the LBS or give them a call if you speak the language.

I'm registered for the C2 (Elite Non-JCF). Will be driving up on Sunday night.

Don't forget two other great events coming in your area (closer to you than me) in Okayama:

Nakayama 3 hr Enduro / Road Race (Aug 12th) - http://t-masaru-web.hp.infoseek.co.jp/

Okayama Aida Circuit 2, 3, 6 hr enduros (Oct 8th) - http://www.webtsc.com/event/Cycle/2006/body06c.html

Thanks! Yeah, it's past the deadline for the Keihanna race, but I should be able to make it to the one at Aida circuit. Are you going to Suzuka next month?

Nah, I'm kinda in my "off season" waiting for October/November. I'm racing Keihanna for fun (driving 4 hours for a 35 minute crit!), and racing Nakayama to get a look at it before I race it with some priority again in November. Suzuka is another hour+ drive for me coming from Hiro area. Looks like another fun MotoGP course though. I love racing those courses.
