(Chuck did the sweet metal flake.)
|Bedford Glens is a windy two-lane road course.
She's flanked by long straights that lead into gentle
15" radii turns. The infield took months to finally settle on.
It has a combination of 6" hairpins, 9" standard turns with
Aurora Speed Corners, a nice parabolic turn and a few
short straights with chicanes. The course requires cars
with good top end for the two long straights, but still
requires cars & drivers with good cornering to handle the
technical infield. Being a permanent track (that I may finish
landscaping someday...) much time, thought and testing
went into the design so it would always remain a
challenging course to drive on.
