SP main is already hosting races and HPDE's. They paved it last month on Tues-Thurs, can and hosted the Porsche Club races on Fri-Sun. A lots of HPDE activity and and an EMRA race since then.
For last NASA race on the new pavement, lap times were on average TWO seconds faster per lap for the fast guys.
They laid the ashpalt directly over the old stuff after grinding away the worst of the bumps. In addition to making the track smoother, it lowered all of the curbing by two inches, making some of it more usable (carousel, T10), but also increased the dropoff if you run wide. Hopefully, they will fill some of it in as there was some nasty accidents on what would have been routine 4 wheels off incidents.
