It seems like a lot of the pictures posted are from the afternoon sessions when everyone was picking up speed. But, just because someone looks like they're leaned over pretty far doesn't mean they were going super fast. In the morning EVERYONE was slow and learning. As the instruction continued and people got more comfortable, it was impressive to see the vast improvements that some riders made. In the afternoon sessions everyones pace picked up quite a bit. For the riders who feel you may not have improved as much as others around you, dont worry it will come. Everyone reaches a point where everything you've learned suddenly "clicks". That point just comes at different times for different people.

For the most part I thought everyone did pretty well.

Patricia....nice job on the alteration of your line through T16/T17 in the afternoon

i cant express how much of an eye opening experience it was...
its just an amazing feeling when you are on these machines treating them how they were designed to be handled.

Buck and staff are extremely awesome folks that made my debut track experience so much more gratifying!

you guys will start seeing me out there from now on (budjet allowing)...

thanks for turning me into a track junkie!!!

Alright guys...I'm having a little trouble with the whole video uploading thing, as it turns out I don't have the proper cable that I need to upload from the camera to my computer. Give me a little bit to figure it out, and I will post the video as soon as I can

I have the cable, but my computer is not fire wire ready, unless I'm overlooking the connector. I tried the usb port, but it reads error, doesn't
recognize the connection.

what Camera were u using?. You probably just need the correct usb driver so your pc recognizes the device.

I will also be uploading some video footage so check back tomorrow hoepfully I'll have it uploaded by then.

I had a blast and thanks to all the instructors for their help, I learned alot

I got an hour of footage, I guess I could go through it all and edit out all the parts that I am not behind anyone. I was not really following anyone though.

there will be plenty of trackdays to come. don't wait for a noob day, because the next noob day is in like october or something like that. plus you'd get much more instruction and attention on a normal trackday (because most of the guys there don't need the instruction, therefore the instructors aren't doing anything but riding as well).
