you get some good throughput rates! Big file, I hope you mixed in some good "I'm a little teapot" music for Jeff as we discussed. Or "tiny dancer", that'd be perfect.

Line, schmine!! This was the first session after lunch, so it would have been my 5th session ever. I was more interested in keeping the bike on the track than finding the right line. Later in the day, after Jim helped me out, I used more of the track and found some better lines. Thanks again Jim! I owe you now. Maybe I'll let the Sox win a few more games and stay in first a little longer before they self implode.

But seriously, thanks Jim!

I have some footage of Jim chasing Jeff as well. I need to sort through it all. If you were in B group chances are pretty good I have a lap or two of you.

I believe I have...

Pete
Rob (Lupi)
Slowass
Chris (lots of Chris )
Beef
BWA
and a whole bunch more who I forgot their names

I thought that you were just protecting the inside line

You looked good out there for a first timer no doubt, looks like you got some knee scrapage as well

Thanks Sticky! Yeah, it didn't start touching down until later in the afternoon. What a feeling that was!! I think Kruz got some footage of me on the last session. Knee was definatly down for that, but I don't know if he had it on tape. It might have ran out while he was trying to chase me down.
