You guys keep saying that he or she's too fast for this trackday, let Buck be the judge of that. That's what he's for. There is always gonna be someone faster than the fastest guy you know.
+1 Have fun out there!

Well, what some of us are worried about is getting bumped from the day because it was full and then find out later that there were non-noobs out there taking our spots when this wasn't really the day for them. By the time Buck pulls them off the track, it's too late - the day has already started.

Oh well. We'll see how it goes. Still a few weeks left to get attendance sorted out.

Becca calm down!!! Just bc some ppl have signed up for a noob day even though they have done trakc days before, maybe they are wanting to improve thier skills and a NOOB track day would be perfect for them to learn what they are doing wrong. Maybe they just want instruction... I think you are just holding grudges b/c you're on the waiting list!!! If you're meant to be out there on 03/03 it'll happen, if not...well looks like I have a pit girl :icon_bigg

I didn't thinking I was making an issue out of it. I just answered what was asked... I believe I fit the definition of a track newbie, and if there are people that signed up that don't belong (that's IF - I haven't singled anyone out because I truly have no idea) in this category, it would be awesome if they could understand the true nature of a newbie day so that others could attend. Even if the "others" doesn't include me - I'm not the only one on the wait list.

As far as Josh - I just thought he'd done more track days before I met you guys. Maybe I got mixed up with all the drag racing and car racing. Simple mistake, and I'm not afraid to say I boo-boo'd. :notworthy
