saturday will be pretty much like RA! they will let us out on to the track in groups.
yes you should race, you can do SM touring or sm heavy with the fast guys!
i am going for two days with my family, hit up Steve so you guys can carpool!
there is plenty of hotels in town! most of them give NorthwoodGP discount!
No Bug this weekend!

Tittays - it is Supermoto Paradise - The grip is INSANE and the banked turns and elevation changes are tops - Like Roman said, Sat is open practice but in groups - (20) min sessions I think and it's $35 to run - Race I think is $75 per class, $65 if you are a NWGP member

The surface of this track is 100% perfect without a crack or seem anywhere

Running 1 weekend with the MX soles is fine - Go to eBay and search Sidi Crossfire SRS and you'll find everything you need

You will learn as much racing the touring class as you would a track day - I did one track day on my old 690 and was racing for the 1st time a month later on my old DRZ

Got on the podium again today and was able to drop my lap times even more so it was a good day. Beat Phil and Jesse today so I am happy as hell.

Check the NWGP site Bro

- SRR
- RA
- USAir

The last 3 rounds then it's just track days till the end of the season - Usually at USAir Sat is open practice and Sun is Race Day

Dude, I am sure with your "rookie" status that if you REALLY wanted to race the 690 in the Heavy Class, they would not even fret about it - Regardless of your displacement, the fast guys on the 450s would have no issue with you out there on the 690

I promise you they would let you race it in that class. Email Chris and tell him your situation. Let him know you know me eddie and Roman and you are on CLSB and we brought you to a RA trackday a couple of weeks ago. I already told Chris that we brought a bunch of you guys to the track day and that you are interested in racing. He was very happy about that. His email addy is [email protected]
