Allan Campbell (Whoop) Vid - 1:49 at TWS (Texas World Speedway)

Allan and I worked together to get data and video from his bike on April 4th. This is the first video with data from a GoPro HD and an XT Racing GPX Pro. Allan rips some 50's - 52's in traffic and then ultimately a 49 in his final lap.



Enjoy.

-Curt

Hmmm...lots of braking at extreme lean-angles? Is that a good thing?

Great video - thanks for sharing

N00B QUESTION: What is the best data acquisition available for motorcycles? I see your unit costs about $1k with options...

Wow, it's interesting to see how it's done. Really amazing.
I was surprised to see the times he would tap the brakes, I suppose to adjust his speed, in places you wouldn't think he would brake at all.
At other times he would hammer the throttle before it seemed like he was upright enough to get the grip. I learned alot about lean angle and traction from watching that.

Unfortunately it didn't make my sack any larger, so I still won't be going that deep into turn 1!

he's fast !! The loud smack in the turn 1 transition gives me the creeps. I have always been scared of that place.

Keep in mind the brake/accel is actually the output from the longitudinal accelerometer. Rolling off the throttle will look like braking. It's not a brake pressure sensor and throttle position like it is with my other data acq.

That vid made my heart start beating fast.. When is the next TWS (Texas World Speedway) trackday? Im ready to go BACK!



Is he on a 1000? Saw him eat a few 600 on the front straight like they were just playing around. One was a VERY familiar R6... with a big head? lol

Yea, that's insane carrying 120 to the apex of one. I'm lucky if I hve enough to break 85 at 1.

Okay, so he is not riding the brakes in the turns? The other guy mentioned the art of "trail braking." Is there a site that explains the technique of braking while at maximum lean in a turn?

He is referring to trail braking. Twist of the Wrist II covers it. I'll bet you'd find a lot with google too.
