Fill us racing illiterate in...

What class would I fit in? Open Amateur?

Am I nuts for thinking about doing this having only been on-track 2 days?

How much does it cost?

Anything extra I would need to do to the bike different from Nor*ay?

I think we will both be in Open Amateur. If I go it will be my first race on a motorcycle. (besides drag racing)

Pre-Registration is only $35 bucks not much more than a trackday.

I think you will be fine, plus I need somebody to race with.

I think the Norway setup will be fine, Sliders and no leaks. I'll bring my drill, and safety wire just in case.

We can share a ride, my wife is in Puerto Rico for a month so I need someone else around in case I pull a BH down there.

yeah, I went down there last year for my first race (and one of my first times on dirt) and tried to pretend like I had big balls and keep up with the fast guys. I ended up falling on my head a couple of time, in practice, and never even made it to the heat races. it was probably one of the most embarrassing things I've ever done. luckily I didn't know anyone there

so then the heat races start, and I felt like an even bigger ass. half the guys in my class were just rolling the jumps. If I would have done that I would have been fine. I still would have finished at (or near) the back of the pack, cause there's some fast mofo's down there, but trust me, last place would have felt much better than a DNS.

so by all means, learn from my mistakes:

- go with a friend. not only will it help with the cost, but there's also the potential injury thing, and it will also help with the nerves.

- don't ride over your head. if you're not sure about an obstacle in the dirt or a section of track, watch some other people do it before you try it.

- focus on having fun vs good results. it's your first race, you're supposed to be slow.

where was Colin to tell me all this shit before I drove down to Springfield for a couple of really expensive practice sessions?

PS: last year they allowed a dab of silicone to be used in place of safety wire.

Yea I think a dab of silicon and drain antifreeze is about it.I am going to run engine ice I checked with a friend of mine who is helping there this year and he said that would be fine. I have done some trackdays on my R6 but this will be my first race too. I just plan on riding my pace and see how it goes.

Is this JR or SR? Yep a trail bike would be fine, there are 3 tracks, 1 mx, 1 tt flat track which is smooth and 1 beginner smooth mx course in the back. That would be cool if you could make it. BY the way i used to ride the mx track with my DRZ400 pig and hit the doubles so youll be more than fine.

MR Huh! Im used to calling your old man that not you.
How about MR Harlow JR?

Tony - yeah Ed Reyes and I are friends. The last couple of years we have carpooled to the races.

Geo - I'm not sure yet. We are finishing a new house which will be done July 25th so I'm not committing to any races in July. It might help if it's a night race or if they don't start at the crack of dawn.

Thanks Bill, I think I'm gonna be geared well. I gonna bring extra chain and sprockets anyway in case I'm bouncing of the limiter in 6th.
