TRMP Lap Time Tips

Opening myself up for some critique and criticism.

For those of you running laps at or below 1:50, where do you think I have the most room for improvement? Where am I slow? (Entry/exit of specific corners). I know from watching other guys that I have a lot of room to improve going entry and exit out of the carousel. I never quite have the confidence to hold the throttle open coming out of the carousel and entering into 8a, over the drop away kink.

This video was from June of 2014 on my 848. I was unable to attend track days in 2015, so April 3 will be my first time back since probably August of 2014. I have not ridden the new T13 configuration and will be on a 1299 now. Excited to be back on the horse and re-learn the track and a new bike.

t1, you're braking early at the blue cones (not the brake markers), and not accelerating into...
t2 and continually coasting/braking down into it instead of getting on the gas again then braking for t2.
t3 coasting up the hill, give her a little gas, helps body transition too
t7 you can brake later, set up wide and dive down straighter, lets you square off the corner.
t8, letting off gas and braking too early as you go down crest/hill into 8. its deceiving but you can go much faster than you think in 8a/8b. helps to follow a fast guy through there to show you yeah, this is how you do it.
t10, letting off throttle over the crest of 10,
t12 early apexing and pushing wide.
t13, braking at/just before blue cones, set back and wait for at least the first set of orange

you're in for a surprise at t13 cuz, it's new now and not nearly as fun.

being on a 1299...is going to change everything. so really, ignore everything i just said, go ride and come back with a new video

More gas, less brake. Easy peasy
