All turns are slick.. There are two down at t17 and two at 1 and there are several place that others went down. Stay within your limits and everything should be all right.

Most street leather jacket are not suitable for tracks due to lack of armors and pads. Make sure you have these in your jacket. After all, it is your life and limbs. The more protection the better.

Actually the suit requirements aren't the track's, it's the track day organizer's requirement (ie- LSTD, Ridesmart, etc.)

They don't even have to zip together at all for LSTD. Ridesmart requires some sort of zip together, can even be the 8-10" at the back. It is required to be 360 for CMRA...

I did 6 trackdays w/ LSTD in my 2-piece. 4 days w/o any zipper at all, last 2 (in A group) w/ 8 inch zipper at the back...

It is recommended for A, not required

Their website:
Quote:
THE GEAR
--Full face DOT/Snell approved helmet not older than 5 years (a flip-up helmet is not a full-face helmet).
--Leather/motorcycle boots that extend above the ankle.
--Full-finger motorcycle gloves, preferably extending past the wrist.
--Advanced Group must have one piece or two piece leathers (it is recommended that 2 piece leathers zip together in some form).
--Intermediate/B and Riders School/C Groups may use full leathers, OR, one/two piece Cordura or synthetic/heavy duty nylon riding suits (lightweight mesh suites are not appropriate).
--Back protector highly recommended.
