Post: Grattan weekend June 23/24

Since nobody's started this thread, I'll go ahead and do it!

I had a fantastic weekend after being away from the track for over a month. Saturday I just worked on getting comfortable and re-learning Grattan, since I've only been there once before. I really like the layout - each turn is distinct and memorable (once the "oh crap!" feelings go away, of course )

Sunday the B group thinned out considerably so I had a lot of open track to work on skill building. I had some homework from CR Tony, and spent a lot of the day working on corner entry speed and coordination of braking, downshifting, and throttle control. It was definitely a challenge...

Grattan bit a few folks over the weekend - the ambulance had to go out a few times, but overall looked like everyone was going to be OK. Hope that Heath, Dave, TifanieMarie, and everyone else are doing alright today

Congrats to Mike Lockhart on the bump to "A" and thePro8 for his "I" bump! You guys were looking great out there!

Props to all of the Control Riders, who worked their butts off all weekend riding multiple sessions in a row on a physically demanding track. You guys and gal are awesome!

Here's to another great NESBA weekend!!

Glad you had a good time out there, Kim. I hope you're feeling more comfortable on the bike.

TiffanieMarie, I hope you get better.

thePro8, congratulations on the bump.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Man did I have 2 full days of fun! Grattan is the most technically challenging and physically demanding track that I've been on so far. Props to all the CRs that were there and rode all day on both days. Congrats to Mike and Steve for their bumps. I hope the injured have speedy recoveries. I can't wait to get back out there again. BHF on 7/14-7/15... woohoo!

First a big thanks to the CRs many of them doing two sessions an hour! WOW I couldn't even finish most of the sessions and would come in a lap early. Tough guys and gals!

I started out Saturday rusty and waaaaaay out of practice after 14 months since my last track day but by the afternoon I was getting into it. T2 gave me some advice on body positioning and I started Sunday morning working on putting his words of wisdom into practice. In the afternoon a GSXR1000 passed me just before turn 5 but I hoooked on to him and stayed with him the rest of the session only falling back down the front straight but reeling him back in thru the backfield. I looked him, Wayne, up after we came in and we went out and I chased him for another 20 minutes. I turned my best time of the 2 days in that second session, a 1:42 after running 1:45"s earlier.

TiffanieMarie had a first lap get off and it shook her up so she sat it out. She wasn't hurt and her bike was just slightly damaged. Thanks to all the folks who stopped by to check in on her a give her words of encouragement. I'm very proud she tryed it out but her confidence was gone and though she tryed going out the next time she wasn't comfortable so she came in. Maybe next year after some more miles.

Grattan is still my favorite track in the midwest in spite of it's less than billiard table condition. I wish I could get back to it again soon but Putnum will probably be my only other TD this year.

I expect to see you in I very soon.

Thanks everyone. It was a great weekend, well Sat night-Sunday. I got to meet and get to know some new people and I received great tips from Tony, Tom, Chris, and Carol.

Tom, my evaluation with you was by far my most enjoyable run of the day. Thanks a lot!

Sunday was my first time at Grattan, and the first session of the day the patchwork they call a track had me thinking I would regret coming out. But as some have said, ride the track and don't dwell on appearances. By the afternoon I was comfortable, confident, and loving the layout, which is much more demanding than all the other tracks I've been to so far. My best laps of the day came in the second to last session when I lined up early and rode with CR Chris Frye who pulled me around for several laps and then let me by to see how I was doing. I had a blast, those laps were the most fun I've had all year. To top it off he bumped me after the session and I was able to finish the day riding with Advanced. It was a great day!
A big thanks to the CRs that rode this weekend, they all had a lot on their plates with such a physically demanding track. I was utterly exhausted at days end and can only imagine being in their boots.

not my best

weekend

Funny thing though, I still enjoyed being there and seeing everyone. The bikes and myself will heal up $$$$$$$?

Congrats on the bumps. Yeah, I am proud of my little bro making it to A.
The CRs did a superhuman job. Blarney did a excellent job with the B group. The new CRs really stepped up and my favorite Drucker was great too. (matt is 2nd so far)

I hope to see everyone again at MAM in August.

I only lapped you cuz you didn't know the track. I knew that once you warmed up, it wouldn't happen. I had the best times gridding up last and dicing through traffic with you and still able to pull 1:34-35's. I really enjoyed passing people over the jump until Butch told me I was a foot off the ground and then I was worried about a bad landing going into the next turn.

But to Chris's point........ before becoming a CR I knew at some
level how comitted these guys and gals were to NESBA and it's
members and how hard they all work to be there ready to ride
their asses off for the club weekend after weekend.

Now I know what it takes......

I have a much greater respect for the CR family and the work
they put into making NESBA events possible and as good as
they are.

Oh....and by the way..... CR's have alot of fun at these events
while we are there so it's not exactly without reward.

+1, Tom.

Before becoming a CR, I really had no idea what was involved. I absolutely love being a CR, and I think teaching is the best way to really solidify your own knowledge. But it is exhausting at times.

Like you guys at Grattan, we were short at Barber this weekend on CR's and it was 120+ on the grid while we were waiting to go out according to my lap timer.

After riding double sessions a bunch on Saturday, I put some new tires on the "A" bike on Sunday to see if I could try do a "mock" qualify for AMA Superstock (get to within 110% of the pole, which is mid 1:25's or so if I remember correctly).

I did an I group, then a B group on the "CR" bike, changed to the "A" bikes and ran really hard in A group, came in changed back to the "CR" bike and did I group, and then went on to do the B group. I was focused on working with one of the members and all of a sudden I almost fell off the bike in turn 5 when my inside leg just seemed to stop working!

I came in and grabbed some fluids and laid down for a bit and I was OK again in about 30 minutes.

I always wondered where the exhaustion line was...guess that was it for me.

Lotta work, but nothing I would rather be doing. I love it!!
