A new addition to the 2015 GNCC schedule will be the Tomahawk in Odessa, New York. While the track will be new to GNCC Racing, it’s no stranger to off-road racing as our friends at the Western New York Off-Road Association have hosted races at the property for a number of years and it has even received honors as their “Best Hare Scramble of the Year” in 2012. The facility offers up large fields with plenty of room for parking and camping alongside the usual GNCC pro pits, vendor’s row and the track itself.
The track is wildly popular among WNYOA racers with its fun, flowing trails, fast paced grass track sections and more. Elevation changes aren’t much of a factor here as the property is relatively flat with some gently rolling hills; so don’t expect any steep hillclimbs. The soil here is a nice black dirt similar to what we see at Unadilla but don’t expect it to be as loamy as Unadilla.
With more of a clay base to the soil, it can get a little slick when it’s wet but a little bit of moisture will only make it better. Rocks aren’t a factor here either, not even the loose rock we see here and there at Unadilla. You may see some exposed roots as the race weekend wears on, but that’s pretty standard for GNCC racers.
All in all you can expect to be in for a real treat at the newest GNCC round known as "Tomahawk". Its rave reviews on the course’s fun factor are no lie and the GNCC Racing Nation will get to experience it for themselves.
