It is not the GP racetrack, it was a future housing development that we had a makeshift track set up on!
10 minute laps, it was long! Part of it was a long straight away that paralleled a railroad track.
We rode this place for about 8 months before they locked it up!

Here is another pic from the same area, I'm sure it's houses there now.

The only time I ever went to the Carlsbad facility was for the 1983 ABC Superbikers race, that year Lawson
won on a YZ490. I wish I could have caught a GP while I was out there, but we were deployed both years at GP time while I was in San Diego. I did go to Speedway 117 a couple times, and we rode at a track called Coyote Loco MX in Mexico. Natrually the place we rode most was Palm Ave! I miss those days!
