I saw this video the other day. It's really kinda cool to watch since I've never done track stuff before, but it really gets into some good details and points for guys who have done it or are looking into doing it.

I was going to post it on Friday, but by the end of the video I was on my way out of work so didn't get a chance. Good find!

I'm going to buy a new R6 and try those maneuvers at the racetrack. I'm going to dominate the CCS Amateur class next year!

I love how they throw "Backing it in" at #4 like it just ain't no thang

More importantly, where did he get the fly specs he has on while driving the cage?

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

I saw this posted on another forum. Some nice basic tips. Wish I would have watched something like this before my first track day. I would have been backing it in on T5 at RA like nobody's business...yeah right.

Btw, have fun at lil Tally next week. I'll send you some pics of the blizzard we'll be getting up here.

I think you need to be a NESBA Cr before you are allowed to officially be a sandbagging cherry picker in CCS AM.
