Who's gonna be there?

What skills are ya gonna work on?

Who's up for the rider challenge/shootout?

I'll be there control riding intermediate and doing the shootout. I'll be working on getting my upper body off the bike a bit more on apex and exit, consistency in lines/using reference points and being smoother on the clutch while downshifting(I should have had this nailed down by now, dang bad habits) among a bunch of things to choose from.

Can't wait!

Pshhhh with your new pace I'm not even close to a threat, so please help me become an almost threat. If you have time for a session that'd be awesome!

I will be there control riding INT (I think) and doing the shootout.

I plan to help anyone that asks! ...and work on braking later into T3 and T4. Also hoping to catch a tow from a fast guy in a session or two.

Ill be there provided I can get my brakes sorted out before then!

Also, does anyone have a spare front warmer that I could borrow for the day? Mine took a dump last weekend at CRA and is currently enroute to chicken hawk for repair.

I'll be there giving you all the thumbs up to go on track at pit zero.

While riding, I'll be working on faster corner entry, using the entire track width, and nailing the Joker. I'm also after a first place sprocket in the Rider Challenge, but I may just be dreaming. Wagaman and Meech are pretty quick.

~3:50 below, carry the brakes deep! Takes lots of practice to get the feel just right.

~4:40 below, half track, don't stand the bike up (biggest thing I see slowing people down) - just find your "spot" that you lower the throttle and your line will tighten up. Follow the curbing on the right, turn left when it stops.
