Ty Howard Advanced Race School in TX - Santa Rocks!

Since my girlfriend and I are vacationing Xmas-New Years my family got together today and did our gift exchange. I literally sh*t my pants when I opened my gift from Santa...inside was a voucher good for sending me to the Ty Howard Advanced Race School in Texas for a 1 on 1 full day with him. This dude is a legend and I'm already crazy excited but super nervous. All I have to do is email Ty and get a date set up. I'm thinking late Feb-early March when the Texas weather starts getting nice.

I need to chose whether I want to do it at ECR or MSR (Cresson). Never been to either track so I'm sorta clueless which one is better. His website says ECR is more technical and MSR is faster but not as technical. I also need to determine if I want to do it 1 on 1 with Ty for the entire day for $675 or if I want to invite up to 3 more riders, which would make it more fun and cheaper for everyone. I don't have any local buddies that race so I may create a feeler thread to see if any of you Texas boys are interested in meeting up and getting a private day with Ty.

Pretty awesome Xmas gift I think!!

Has anyone here gone to his race school, met or know Ty personally, or at least heard of his students experiences?

No better way to learn than from the man who sets the lap records

The backwoods guy that still holds lap records at most, if not all of the Mid-West tracks...he isn't too old to teach me a few things and he still has a few tricks left in his sleeve to beat the youngsters at CMRA races.
