The do have break check points but I think it was just visual last time I was there. "93". I see now they paved the upper portion which ruined the track in my opinion. Last time I was there was the week before the race. Some guy was practicing illegally and shattered the windshield on my brand new car with rocks. Park Rangers ran him down and brought him to the front gate where we were waiting. Some Oriental guy got out apologizing profusely and paid us $ 500 for the damage.
