Ridesmart Ty Howard School

How many of you have attended the Ty Howard Riding School @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)?
Did you learn anything you didn't already know?
Did the school help your track riding?

Also, How many trackdays do you recomend someone attending prior to enrolling in a school such as this?

I may be doing it on the 23rd. However by doing the racing school you ride with group 4(racers etc..) so I'm still debating

Is there a Ty Howard School on the 23rd?
I'm going to be doing Corner work 1/2 the day on the 23rd and riding the other 1/2.
I would rather dedicate an entire day if I'm going to attend the school

i guess u will have to be riding full day to take the school. I was supposed to take it on Labor day, but Ty cancelled out cos he was racing AMA that weekend. Dunno when i m takin it next, though my money is paid for.

And Eric, its too early for u to take the school IMHO. its supposed to be good, but only if u already are at a decent level already. check ur PMs, I am fwding what one of top CMRA experts had to say about TY school when i thought of taking it at the begining of this season. for clarirty sake, lemme say its mostly good things

Thanks for your input. That's exactly what I was looking for some strait forward advise. How will one (I) know when he/she (me) is ready to take the class?

Must I first be able to catch fly w/ chop stix? :icon_bigg

There has still got to be a class that dials in on the "basics" and getting comfortable on the track.
Isn't there?
Or you just feel your own way around / wreck a few times hopefully don't get hurt then when you feel comfortable out on the track, find a class like Ty Howard to dial in on the few things you may have missed or may need polishing up.

Ridesmart has a class in every level. LSTD has a class thats extra but i think its free now.

LSTD is a open trackday and Ridesmart is more of a school. I dont like Ridesmart now because I have to ditch the class and hide from the instructors

point is, WHAT is HOW beneficial at WHICH level. for a person doing first trackday, The level 1 classroom is the MOST beneficial thing, not TY school. For a person with 5 trackdays, ty school wil be good maybe, not Superbike school. for a novice racer, Superbike school will be beneficial ...
so take ur pick..its ur money..u can always do it agin if u hv spare lying around..
