Jennings, PBIR or Homestead? racers advice please

whats up guys.
Would you go to Jennings, Palm beach internatinal raceway (PBIR)or Homestead?

I am an hour away from PBIR and Homestead
I'm 6 hours from Jennings.

There is a weekend at Jennings 29-30-31
and Jan. 5-6 at PBIR
looks like nothing is on for now at Homestead.

I went at Jennings 2 years ago and it was pretty fun. Never went to PBIR....looks like a fast track.

So 6 hour to go to Jennings and do 2 or 3 days
OR
1 hour to PBIR for 2 days!!

any input!??

Thanks

PBIR. The $ you save in gas could be another set of fresh tires at PBIR.

FTD is a great set of guys and the track is a lot of fun. If you have never been then you owe it to your self to go see another track!

The December track day is this weekend though at PBIR, the 9th. Not the 29-30th. There is a two day in January, the 5th and 6th.

Oups my bad!! Your right, Jan 5-6 PBIR!
My concern is PBIR looks like a fast track, well have a first time trackrider with us...I think Jennings is bettrr track to learn because its slower. But its far for sure!!

Im 3 hours from Jennings and have been there 4 or 5 times its a fun track. I have not been to PBIR or Homestead would like to try PBIR. Keep us informed on when and where your going and hopefully we could get a group of S1000s out there.

Novice is set up for beginners. The first session is all lead follow, the second session is 2 lead follow laps and then your own pace.

If your friend feels the need to go slower or wants a control rider to help with body position/brake markers/ corner speed etc they will be more than willing to help.

There is no reason you could say Jennings is better to learn on.

I will be out there again on the January dates---possibly double header.
