MTD @ BHF june 7-8 RECAP

Saturday was beautiful, perfect weather and temperature.

MTD has definitely got the process down, there is minimal downtime between group sessions, didn't really see anyone waiting on the grid for their session to start

attendance seemed low though but that's not a bad thing from a riders perspective at all, tons of track space

rain came in Saturday night and hung around into Sunday, with mist and overcast in the morning, it cleared up and dried out though before the lunch break

all in all 2 good days worth of riding, I don't think I set any new personal best times but I did get some practice in setting up and making passes in corners I wanted to work on which was ultimately my goal.

Jeff and the MWTD crew have it down.

Sorry I wasn't able to make it out. Sounds like it was a great weekend.

We sold out every spot at our first event this year. Saturday was pretty full. Not sure where everyone was on Sunday though.

Our group limits are
Advance - 30
Intermediate - 30
Novice - 35
