Sorry for the delays I've been quite busy these days.


This track is the former No Problem Raceway, which is now under new ownership and has been rebranded as The Circuit at Grand Bayou. (http://www.noproblemraceway.com http://www.circuitgrandbayou.com). We are currently clearing land for a brand-new track and you can read more about that on the site.


My MR2 is the local GT2 class champion car with 266 whp and 2300 lbs and runs 1:19.001 on it's fastest around this track (on hoosier radial GT tires). Spec Miatas go 1:25's average and Porsche Cup cars go 1:15.xx to give an idea of what the track is like. I believe headlights of some sort will be required for this event.


Video of one of my earlier races: http://www.youtube.com/user/harrisracing#p/u/7/j3idWXjzaV8


I would estimate the event to be less than 6 hours of driving (that's estimating 1:30 laps).


Reason why pictures are of other tracks is because lots of our local racers race NASA, BMW, PCA, and SCCA races...so it's more just pictures of their cars.


We would love for some fresh competition to show up for this event. Please don't hesitate to email to ask for more information. dementedmotorsports @t gmail dot com

I drove on this track at the May 1-2 Lemons race and here is my assessment:


1. Track surface is like chip and tar, its quite ruff and hard on tires. Make that very hard on tires. Bring two sets.

2. Very tight track, much like the old Little Talladega in Birmingham. Not much excitment beyond turn 1 flatout and the backstraight.

3. There is nothing around. And I mean nothing. The closest restaurant is 15m away, its a waffle house and a McDs. Thats it. Sugarcane and refineries.



1. Track Mgt is awesome. Great group of folks, very friendly. There is even a 6ft gator that lives at the track

2. You can run in the Drags on Sat night, all you need is a helmet and $20

3. Very easy track to learn. Only two corners will elude most for the first day.

4. Except for the front straight/drag strip, there are no walls..

Thanks for the kind words...I'm sure our management will be proud when I tell them what a 3rd party outsider thought of their manner.


I also wanted to post that we are building a completely new track and facility out there. Lots of people invested LOTS of money into the new track and it will be world class. Ground is broken, and land is currently being cleared and we can expect a FAR nicer surface to run on in probably a year!


The surface and tire wear is BY FAR our biggest complaint as well. I run on used hoosier GT radials to save costs because i know the track eats tires.
