My First track day!!!

Yesterday was my first track day ever, i entered in Level 2 out of 4 lvls since i ride in the hill country and was told lvl 1 would prob be a little to basic for me.

Anyway the day started off kinda discouraging but by mid second session and deff third, i started having a blast and learning the track.

By the end of the day, i popped my knee cherry and was able to down both multiple times, and actually started gaining on SOME of the people that passed me in earlier sessions, even though i was still getting passed at times, i was improving at my own pace.

Im def addicted and will be selling my organs to support my new habit. Here is one pic of me, im the first one of the three!

Re: My First track day!!!

Not a bad line through that corner, are you guys running the new configuration or the oldest? I used to race there in 95-97, as well as Oak Hill, Monterey, Mx. You can pass alot of people on the outside there but new guy feel more comfortable on the inside. Once you hooked that's it.
