for those attending GSS this sunday!

anybody attending GSS this sunday with Fastline should really consider signing up for the race school with Alonzo Contreras. He is not only a good friend and a very talented racer, but he is also very talented with track instruction.

I remember when I first started riding on the track, he was one of my inspirational instructors that has helped me cross many milestones with track riding and racing. Not only does he instruct you on how it's done, he has a way with motivation like no other. He'll get you where you want to be. If you don't believe me, sign up and see for yourself, it's worth every penny.

ill vouch for him! he never instructed me but when i was doing trackdays i got some great bits of wisdom from him.

ill put it this way, he went out on an intermediate session and followed me for a lap at msr-h. when i talked to him at lunch and took his advice into the afternoon sessions, i dropped 3-4 seconds off my lap times and dropped below the 2 minute lap mark in basically one hour of track time. that aint bad!!!

I agree. I've been friends with Alonzo for a few years and have been one of his sponsors this season. He has a way of making you faster without you feeling like he told you were slow. Very inspiring guy that has made me faster thru the years for sure. Can't wait to get time to take a class with him. I would this weekend, but I'm vending out there so I'll just have to bend his ear with more great advice on the sessions I make it out.
