Talking so many people to thank!
I don't usually write a bunch, but I'm compelled to thank all those who helped me get back on the track.
TurnOneRacing team does the job again!
Thanks Tom, Joe, Marshall, Benji, and of course my son Chris!
I really wanted to run Pirelli's, but I didn't order them so I was left with the new Bridgestones.
After Chris scuffed them in for me I gave it a try. After a very good final session Sunday, I can tell you that they worked perfect. I can now recommend them with confidence. They offer very similar feedback and wear like iron. I had no problems getting on them hard after 2 corners and no warmers. Marshall was spot on with the 28/26 psi cold setting.
That was the first time I ever lined up in the front of the "B" group. Stevie "B" let me by after the first couple corners and I never looked back.
It wasn't long before I caught up with the back of the group and worked my way through them. Its been a long time since I smiled that big!
I was really concerned that I would never ride the track again since diagnosed with nerve damage in my left hand. The last time I rode, I could not run more than 4 laps without total fatigue. Now with the weight loss and hard work at my part-time job, I am able to run at least half the session and recover quickly.
Thanks for all the positive feedback from Fred, Steve, Wink, Jim C, Alan and all the rest I forgot to mention. (my old man memory can't recall all)
To everyone else, thanks for making me feel at home again.
I wasn't planning on attending RA this week, but now I can't wait to give it another try.
I can't wait to see you all out there.
