Just bring some snacks or energy bars, motocorsa serves lunch, but do bring out plenty to drink and drink some after every session.

My bike is down for a few days, I had to slide out to the 7/9 track day. Was going to get new front tire put on Friday, unfortunately what usually takes 5min took a couple hours as one of the wheel spacers binded to the axle. Have to wait for a new spacer to come in.

Thanks for the update. I was on the fence last night if I wanted to drive the 3 hrs and go, but the chance of rain had me change plans.

How were they about the sound level? I知 99% sure my bike doesn稚 meet the db level requirements, but it was run there often in the past. So I知 not sure to baffle or not?

for my first time back on the track since 2010 I had a BLAST!

C group started off pretty dang slow, but i honestly needed that to rebuild some familiarity. reference points, shift points, the feel of the bike and the track all came back to me by the 3rd or 4th session. 4th and 5th sessions went awesome, minus being held up in some corners due to the no passing rule. I understand why they have that rule but it can be frustrating.

There was some confusion in the afternoon and the officials announced that c group would be done for the day after only 5 sessions. I went and talked with one of the officials and mentioned we had only done 5 sessions. I asked for permission to ride my 6th session with B group as I really wanted one more session before the end. They obliged and slapped a b sticker on my bike and let me go out for the last 1 1/2 B sessions.

HOLY COW B group is a different world! You can pass anywhere except 7-9 and boy was the pace quicker! The good news was I had nobody to slow me down which allowed me to really work on my corner speeds. Bad news was that I was the speed bump for everyone else lol!

I think ill stay in B group for my next track day.
