I would probably kill myself if I rode RA on my first trackday. I'm jealous of you too getting to ride 3 freaking track events in the span of a week.

I'm not ready either. Looking at the track map gives me the shudders. However, I know it'll be fun when I get there.

Just don't go in too fast and you will be fine Craig. Road America is wide open throttle (top gear) in three places. This tends to create some "pucker" moments for many riders as they approach 1, 5 and 12. Be your normal mellow self and you will be fine.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

The other thing is that, especially in 1 and 5, a lot of us pucker way before we need to. You think "crap, this is fast" then get on the brakes and by the time you turn in you nearly have to put a foot down to not fall over! It is a sledgehammer of a track, but you're ultimately in control of how scary it is.

It just does that
