Qualifying Notes from the Mexico 200

Mexico City- The talk is the track. Yes, it is Mexico and one driver was overheard saying, "I've eaten so much carne asada I'm turning into a Mexican." The teams are now out on a tourist stop at the pyramids. But earlier today, the talk was the track. "Some turns are banked the wrong way, turn 8 is off-camber". As a Baja California driver, it sounds familiar. Some turns on the transpeninsular route 1 are banked the wrong way, off camber. And the results are often on the roadside. Wasted hulks of autos, trucks and semi's strewn over the landscape, just off of these notorious, "curvas peligrosas", dangerous curves. Baja Racing News
