Tips for TWS (Texas World Speedway):

Trackday one: C Group: Learn the track. Stay slow, look for pavement conditions, ripples, seams, bad places to go off track. Watch from off track to see the lines the good riders take.

Trackday two: B Group: Ride swift, get used to being passed at speed and riding close quarters. Pay attention to the line, learning from those who know it best.

Trackday three: B Group: Maybe you will break 2 minutes, maybe.

Prove me wrong, that you break 2 minutes in your first trackday, and I'll tell you that you were riding in over your head. You may be fast, but you disregard your own safety and the experience of all the other paying customers who might have to wait on your ambulance ride to town.
That's why the CMRA requires 2 crash free weekends to get a novice license. Fast does not in any way equal good when you are learning.

Bring your bike 2/3 to 3/4 full and bring a 5 gal can of extra fuel and you'll have plenty...

Just take it easy out there in the morning and spend that time working on body position, throttle control, braking and picking up the race lines. In the afternoon as the track comes in pick up the pace a little (whatever is comfortable for your abilities) and have fun. One word of caution for you on the liter bike is do not get over your head on the big bank. It is a 3/4 mile stretch and on the liter bike you can cover some ground really quick but have to be able to slow down enough to get into and through T1 and T2.

Thanks again ....had'nt riden TOO long but enough to realize you have to respect the Liter, or it will own you . I really want to drag knee, but from what I hear you should be too conserned with that...and that it will come in time. Also that TWS (Texas World Speedway) isnt the "BEST" place to get your knee down for the first time:eh: . Anyway...I do plan on taking it very slow and just learning as much as I can from the people there . I can be "SQUID" like till i get some trackdays and classes under my belt, I was out at oakhill month or so ago and man some of those guys can move!!!!(HOWARD,SANCHEZ) but I gotta log time in the saddle!, Thank for the advise and please tell me more.

I am not trying to be an , but any moron can go fast in a straight line.... i just think that people that try to act all bad have self esteem issues.... therapy, not motorcycles will cure that....

They will probably be there Saturday helping you get moving too. Just ask alot of questions and ask for personal help with your body position on your bike. I personaly feel like that is the most important thing to develop early on. Then practice it for several sesions. Screw everybody else if they think you are going slow. Work on sitting on the bike properly and looking through the corners and understanding where you are going on the track at low speed and before you know it your pace will be picking up and naturally coming to you.
