Willow Springs International Raceway (Big Willow or WSIR) is a high speed track with long sweeping turns. This track is only used in a clockwise direction in one configuration. The track is 2.5 miles long. There are nine turns at WSIR. Highlights are “The Omega” and turn 8. “The Omega” is called this because it resembles the Greek letter omega when viewed from a distance. One can carry triple digit speeds in turn 8. There is a lot of run off space available for off road excursions. The hardest braking occurs before turn 1, after the long front straight, and before turn 3.
