Another Fantastic Evening at Perris Raceway

Thursday, August 5, 2010
2010 Honda CRF250R First Ride
The boys and girls at Perris Raceway have once again come up with a new layout that is fun yet challenging and is well suited to all sized motocross bikes.
I just got back from an evening moto session at Southern California’s Perris Raceway and all I can say is wow! The boys and girls at Perris always have a fun, challenging and safe layout but the current configuration is almost too good to be true.
 
There are a variety of obstacles including tabletops, doubles, one triple jump, or if you’re really adventurous you can quad it. No one actually cleared it but a few eager young bucks tried to on their 250Fs. Even though they came up a wee bit short on the landing the consequence was no worse than a big bounce on the landing.
 
They also cleverly crafted dirt walls on the inside of many of the corners which quickly morphed into rail-type ruts that you could rip around at foot peg dragging lean angles. Credit for the awesome layout goes to both Matt Sjostrom, a private track designer who builds tracks for pro racer Nick Wey, and the new track manager Rob Wake.
 
All night long the track’s staff puts just the right amount of water on the dirt to ensure tacky and dust-free conditions. Plus there weren’t a whole lot of riders practicing so the track was smooth all night.

If you’re looking for a fun track to rip around at I highly recommend visiting Perris. Make sure to check out their recently redesigned website for the schedule and hours of operation and like always riding only costs $25 with no membership fee.

Woody -A tale of two Perrises August 6, 2010 09:19 AM
When even one talks about Perris, its important to clarify which Perris you are talking about. Not only does the Perris Auto Speedway (dirt oval)have a motocross track on the premises, but the Perris Motocross track (which has been around since the 1950's) has a dirt oval for speedway and flattrack!
