Say hello to a group of my friends who are there representing wiriders.com! They are pitted in one of the garages. Black (MSB Racing vinyl wrap) GSXR, red/black SuperHawk, white R6, white cobbled together Hawk, orange CBR600RR. They will be familiar with who you are I'm sure.

I missed you guys. I was under the Designengine tarp. Here is a video of just over one lap.

I was there yesterday. Left early when the rain came. I like that track. Really wish I had a couple more sessions - wanted to work on the perpetual I think I'm hanging off the bike, but not problem.

Veteran novice is a great idea for those not yet ready for intermediate but much faster than the vast majority of novices, and who need practice as opposed to hearing the same class about clutchless upshifts and riding a lap in one gear / no brake for throttle control, etc.

Only having 2 track days this year, one at Road America for first time, and first time at Putnam since the first track day ever 2 (maybe 3?) years ago, I feel like I've regressed, but MAN is it fun.

Anyone catch who the photographer was? Want to see how bad my form is.
