It looks like a nice track and unlike anything in the Houston area. Note the POV bike's speedometer is set for KPH

I don't know what they call it at that track but here it's known as a Mock Race and as far as I know, only for advanced riders

This looks like a race and not a track day. They are gridded up at the start. I hope the riders are ok.

I have no idea what the ČMN Prospeed Cup is but I know it's not in the US and it's certainly not a FIM SBK race

Hammering it in the straights and parking it in the corner, perfect example of why not to start out on a 1K for riding the track, clearly the other guys were faster.

yep. same thing that happened to me. stupid on a gixxer 1k couldnt take it that i was tearing his up on my lil 6. he kept trying to drag race and parked it on an exit cause he came in way too hot and i smacked into his end cause i was already pretty well committed to my line. i have been riding for yeeeeears and I still feel more productive on the track with a 6 rather than a 1k. guess some folks need that extra 400 to make their nuts feel bigger. idk.
