Not sure what level you signed up for, but if you are in L1 - I will probably bring my 250 (if I get the engine replaced in time), so come talk to me in class (I'm the lead instructor) and we'll do some "250 work."

It's not that bad, everyone is respectful, but there will be close passes. Just hold your lines. You'll be fine.

And there will be instructors riding out in lightweight keeping an eye on the mayhem if you need somebody to tow you around to help pick up the line. The cut-through for the short track is a little narrow at first but once you figure out the line it's no big deal.

Plus the 250's seemed to get a little bunched up after a few laps since nobody can just really run off and leave the anybody else. So if that happens you just pit in, let any groups go by, and then you have a whole section of the track to yourself!

It will probably change. Never worry until about 5 days out.
