vibe at this brand-new track is come one, come all, with motorcycles allowed on
the track and nonmembers permitted day passes.
excellent beginner’s track, with ample runoff and
friendly curbing. A series of rhythmic S-curves are grand fun, but just as you
reach top speed, a tight turn comes out of nowhere -- embarrassingly within
sight of the pits.
Vehicle of choice:
The small and nimble Lotus Exige, ideal for scrambling around without getting
in over your head.
Although the track is only 15 miles from the French Quarter, New Orleans’s maddening traffic means it
feels far, far away.
