I recall that NESBA fast guys were in the 1:07 - 1:12 range. I seem to recall that Dano was a record holder there. (at or just under a minute I think?)

NESBA Intermediates hang in the 1:13 - 1:20ish range if memory serves.

I'm sure others will chime in shortly.

I would fairly rate myself a solid 3/4 of the way in the back of Intermediate rider Maybe middle of the pack on a good day. On North I ran around 1:17 and South I was at 1:53. This is the I group with STT though…I’m sure Nesba as a whole runs faster.

I think the North track record is 1:03? So I’m getting there

Yup, I ran 1:13's there last time I was there and that seemed to be right around the top of I group. Track record is 1:03, set by Dano too if I remember correctly.

Can anyone please just run at my lap time so I don't feel like totally the slowest one?

I'll say this...that's also the only lap I ever timed on that track. I was there once before prior to having a track bike and had no lap timer. Then when I did have a timer, the whole day something was up with the beacon and it picked up the final lap of the final session.

My first trackday of this season on the new bike with new suspension was on ABN and I was only able to manage a 1:16. I've had about 5 trackdays since then so I'm hoping to do a little better.

I think Robert Jenson broke the lap record this year. If I was told correctly those guys were just under one minute.

Yes! My one and only time at Autobahn north was at a CCS race last year. Think of how fucking hairy it would be to go thru turn 1 and 2 on the start. Blow turn 1 and you're in the armco fosho!

That's probably true, but I'm a lot faster at the North course than I am on the South... oh well

I didnt find the course that much fun until I started hitting 13's and below. After that it began to flow. When you can string 3, 4, and 5 together like one big chicane, then the course is fun.

Through 3, 4, and 5 you don't need any brakes, positive throttle all the way through, and don't take 5 wide, come out of 4 and stay more towards the inside of 5 and take 5 wide on the exit to set up for braking late in 6 . Now if you are running the full course and you come into the north course tracks turn 3 (not sure what turn that would be on the full) then you need brakes, because you are hauling major balls coming down the connecting straight and trying to stay to the left so you don't catch air. What am I typing? Catching air is cool...
