I'm not sure I can swing two weekends in a row. I don't know if the boss will bite on that.
I know what you mean about pussyitist. I've got a wicked case as well!! My biggest fear is getting in someone's way or hurting someone cuz I'm slow-n-stupid. lol.
That's the class I was thinking but then I started thinking that vet didn't necessarily mean "old dude" but "old dudes that have been racing their entire lives and need a place to get away from all the crazy young folk" class.
Listen to the advice of the wise old men on here.
Matt and Tony, both came into this sport recently from little experience and/or a lot of time off, and this year they were both rockin out there having a good time and continuing to get faster every race (though Tony was taking a few soil/pavement samples more often as the year went on).
And don't think that you can wait around and the class will get slower, the top 2 guys in the +45 class also finished 2nd and 3rd in the Open class this year. Even the SS class had a couple cherry pickers in it this year.
As the guys mentioned, everybody is pretty laid back, and pretty much everybody has to go to work the next day so they don't do anything too crazy. If someone is coming up to lap you, they may yell at you, but that is more to let you know they are coming, just hold your line and leave a little room, don't guess which side they are going to pass you on, bacause they will invariably pick the side you didn't guess.
I hope to see you out there next year. Even though Benny Carlson is a Factory Aprilia rider, and he basically grew up in the SBK2 series, I still don't think anybody has lined up for one of their races on one!
(Geo, you should feel honored that I have graced you with my presence, now get another tube of that ointment, get rid of that rash, and get out on the track!)
