Iíve wished there were a day at COTA we would have time to try, but that hill would probably sap the legs before finishing 29 laps even so. Iíve though about trying it at the Veloway, but thatís twisty enough that again, the accelerations (and one hill) would likely catch up before the end of 34 laps.

I may still try though, driving out with a car full of bottles to not need to spend any time in traffic and much faster refill.
What is the Velo way like? Always wondered if it's worth giving a try. Now that my daughter is in Austin again, I expect to be down there more.
