    Not sure if I'd have enough balls to do that. I'd like to say yes, but I'm pretty sure it'd end up in a fucked up highside. That's badass the the extreme

    This is why I titled the thread "The Mountain".

    Circuit HistorySet in the rolling Lincolnshire countryside, Cadwell Park was established in 1934. The length of the track almost doubled to 1.3 miles in 1953, when the ascendant 500cc motorcycle-engined F3 class was invited to race in a traditional bike meeting. Reg Spreckley thus became the track's first car race winner in his Cooper. Some 30,000 spectators were said to have watched the meeting.

    The original track, with its fearsome and photogenic Mountain feature, grew to its current 2.25-mile layout in 1962 and hosted the British F3 series the following May. It has three configurations - the rarely used Woodlands circuit, the short Club circuit, and the splendid, daunting Full circuit.

    These days, its car racing exploits are confined to club meetings but they are invariably superb, the track's swooping nature providing fantastic racing, and the challenge proving irresistible to drivers and riders alike.

  12. Seen it before, but always good for another look. Even the crazy Brits appreciated that.

    Just looked at the Ridge track map trying to figure where Rod could squeeze a "Mountain" in. LOL.

    I'd call it SPG Hill.

    How about running clockwise and coming out of 13? (shudder). :scared
