6/30 Grattan with STT - Video of me!

Had my latest track day at Grattan this weekend. My instructor ended up taking some video. This is the last lap of the day. We were told to pass the instructor on the straight. Generally, he would come back up to pass us or we'd slow down. I got into a little chase with a guy on a liter bike and my instructor never bothered to pass me again. The guy in the black suit for part of the time is my husband trying to keep up!

I had that guy on the liter bike in the corners... He just walked me in the straights and we weren't allowed to pass anywhere but the straight. I was so tempted to try elsewhere. I should work on out-braking him!

And my BP is awful from the hips up. I got the foot thing down, but SHIT, I need to get my head down and out.

It's long, deal with it. I don't have video editing software. The fun mostly starts around 4:06 when the liter bike goes by, then I am waved on to pass.

Looking good Nancy!

I think you look comfortable out there.. What's the instructor's feedback on your lines? And I think you could do a little more moving around but I'm sure that will come once the speed starts climbing up on you

Instructor didn't have much feedback for me. I already know that my BP needs work. My speed will start creeping up, then. My lines are ok. There are a few times I went wide or varied a little. I need to work on early apexing. I'm getting faster, so I'm starting to turn in earlier and that's not a good thing. So I'm going to work more on that, too.

^^ Looks like theres a lot more track for you to use....

The faster you go the more track you have to use.

The line you were running looked off and an off line will make you work harder and put you more at risk for a crash.

By what you wrote you sounded like you had a blast and thats all that matters!

Yeah, there are a few spots where I'm off-line. But for the most part, almost! I generally didn't stray TOO far from it.

Looking good! I don't think your BP is too bad. Work on leaning down a little more and getting those elbows bent. It looks like you're really getting fast after the apex out of the corner. You definitely could've passed that guy in front of you if you were allowed.
