Hold your friend's hand and ride together.
Or an instructor will hold your hand.

Sometimes that Sunday ride is worse than the trackday

You'll be fine bro just take your time learning the track then you can start to go faster when you have it down pat.

And be EXTRA careful in the paddock. There will be people(pit bikes, pedestrians, and trackbikes) everywhere. I actually think the paddock is almost as dangerous at the track because there are so MANY people. Just kind of poke your head out like a turtle does around any obstructed view and you should be alright.

Don't get caught up in "lap times".
Use the first half of the day getting used to the track.
Don't go there thinking you're Superman, cause you WILL get pwned.
Drink LOTS of fluids(1 water & 1 gatorade between each session).
If you have questions... find any instructor(even if you're not in the class).
Be a sponge, and learn as much as possible.
Most importantly... HAVE FUN!

TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a very fast track, fastest around. So its very tempting. But there are some places which catch u offguard suddenly. So start out slowly, even if u think u can go way more faster easily. Identify some turns which u think u got well and then start gassing up a bit thru them(there r some turns whichspook u, but can be taken real fast). Also identify the tough turns and take xtra care thru them. I would say which turns r fast and which r tough, but i dont wanna give u a biased opinion. but be careful thru turn 9 (8a), its a dangerous turn.best of lck!

and don't get ahead of yourself this time. TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a fast track and getting into a turn to deep there is not going to be fun.
