Thinking of booking the Pocono inside track S/E later on this month with TPM. I heard that the layout was changed and it was repaved. I usually avoid this track (south, southeast or whatever they called it) because it was really tight and in sh*tty condition. So I've been spending most of my time at NJMP. But Pocono is an hour closer to me so if they did a nice job on the new layout I'd like to check it out.
Anyone have any feedback on the track?
Thanks

Ok so I did the track day on Saturday and figured I'd update the thread for anyone thinking of going to Pocono who hasn't been there.
It's no NJMP but the track is fun enough and worth the trip...especially because it's the closest track for us downstate New Yorkers. The track is totally repaved and the surface is very smooth. For those of you that remember the old Pocono South course (or whatever it was called) this layout is different. It's definitely longer and not riddled with pot holes. There are some elements of the old layout that they still use (the tight right hander...I believe they used to call it the "bus stop"). Even though it's longer than the old layout its still a short track and not very flowing but still fun. Also, the paddock is no longer 1/2 gravel. it's totally paved.
Fun track and a nice change of pace but since I only have time for a few track days a year I think I'll spend most of my time at NJMP.
