Talking Mike Sanchez's Track School

So, I went with Mr. Whoopie to Mike's track school, and might I say.....AWESOME. I think i learned much more than I can remember. Mike definatley has a way with teaching people in a way that they can easily apply it on the track. Great experience!!! If anyone who was wondering if they should do it or not, dont wonder. DO IT!!! Its WELL worth the money. And if your looking for improvement in your riding, this is a SURE SHOT way of getting it.

ITS AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE.

What topics did he cover?
Classroom and track time or just track?
How much riding time did you get in?

Thumbs up

The class helped me out alot. Mike focuses on differant areas with differant riders. Both classroom and track instruction. First he goes over what you think your weaknesses are. Then on track he showed us the correct lines by following him at a slower pace and he slowly picks up the pace over sessons. He also followed us. Between sessons he went over what we each did well and not so well. Where to up shift and down shift between corners and which gear to be in. Body position, braking, throttle control, how to control the bike over bumps. Mike has you work on a specific area you need at a little slower pace. He DOESN"T cloud your head with to much info and have you go out there and try to work on everything. You can ride all the sessons you want. I tried to pace myself and skipped a mid-day sesson. Came in early on some sessons also. The key is to stay focused out there. When I got tired and started missing shift points and not keeping my lines, i would take a break. Mike tells you to be patient. If your riding to fast and sloppy, he'll slow you down a little to work on things. By the end of the 2nd day I was running constant 1:49s. Very good for me and I'm very happy.
Gabe and Rich helped us out with the bikes in the pits. Gabe keeps track of your track times with his timers. Gabe is also a wealth of information and Rich is a great mechanic and fast.
Those were the most fun trackdays I've ever had. I've done 12 to 13 and started back in August. Looking forward to the next one.
Mike will even ride your bike and set it up for you. Mike ran a 1:36.55 the last sesson on Sunday.
A BIG thanks to the Sanchez brothers. Nice spending the weekend with you. I want to do another one. 2 days is the way to go.

It was Mongofeets 2nd and 3rd trackday. He made much bigger improvements than me. I think he was averaging like 1:52s by Sunday afternoon and I think I saw on Gabe's clip board a 1:50. Mongos 1st trackday was Ridesmarts last day at TWS (Texas World Speedway) where he crashed in T3.

alittle slow, unlike your corner speed. You looked good in the corners. Between corners, you need some hp.
Nice to meet the infamous nutmegchoi.

You have a nice house with nice furniture and nice clothes. Wife and kids. Trackdays are much cheaper. And your bike won't get mad if you ride another bike.
