And I wouldn't think those guys are necessarily coming out and riding A group. They might but surely they'd be the outliers.

And I'm not doubting that. But CMRA membership =/ A level rider.

If you're averaging about 2:20 on a track day, you should be in the beginner class. My slowest lap of the day was a 2:22 because in level C because I kept getting caught up behind slow riders. And most people DROP lap times in a race.

In the past I've been what seemed like one of the faster guys in A/3 where I would come up on people and go by them thinking they really didn't belong in 3. Then again I've had days where I was pushing 95% and had someone come by me in turn 1 like I was standing still. I was running :56s consistently. I'm sure it was mentioned but the best way to keep yourself and others from getting hurt is to be very consistent with your lines and DON'T change at the last second. That's where people can get seriously hurt while passing/being passed

+1 on that. I never care if your faster or slower then me. Just consistent so I can pass easily. I was following a guy around the other day getting caught up by him at GSS. He wasn't real slow, but had the most inconsistent lines and would ride out to the race line exiting curves and then drag race to the next one. It was agrevating as he never kept the same line, plus I ran across him about every 4 laps again slowing me up. I eventually found a safe spot to motor past him though.

Apparently not. Bike displacement disparity, especially at TWS (Texas World Speedway), has a significant impact on laptimes. A dude that's comfortable with the close passing in A group might not be up to """"A group pace""" if he's riding a small displacement bike.
