C group with Lonestar will be like riding with the Level2 group at Ridesmart. It won't be to bad for you but, you might get irritated again because of the slow pokes. I will be trying to sign up for that weekend as well if you think you are ready for B group by that time. Although, being race weekend there will probably be alot of sandbaggers in the B group. right:

Re: LSTD 6/3 and CMRA Race 6/4-6/5

i dunno, B group is pretty fast compared to C and level 2 seems to have a little of both slow and fast riders.. so just use your better judgement.

no matter what people told me about the rattle snake it's even more tricky than i thought. especially with that bike laying in the middle of it. :laughing6:

Re: LSTD 6/3 and CMRA Race 6/4-6/5

I had a good time at the trackday, took a while to get back into the swing of things but by the third session I was doing pretty decent. Passed more people than got passed.

Not bad considering it was my first trackday in 10 months, first time on that track, first trackday since my crash and it was a race weekend so there were a few A group guys in B....

Henry, I want to see how bad I was sucking out in Big Bend when you get those pics ready, hehe...*

It was nice to meet some members here: Syd and Bejon.

Did you get your bike fixed and ready to go for Sunday Syd?

BTW... Friday was a baaaaaaaaad day to be on a ZX10. There were 2 there... and they had a total of 4 crashes!! Too bad about the dude with the MV Augusta, dumped it in Little Bend.

Re: LSTD 6/3 and CMRA Race 6/4-6/5

The MV was tooo messed up... but it was definitely in a crash, haha. The guy was knocked out cold for a few minutest so when he came back to the pits he was out of it.

Yeah, there were 2 ZX10's and they totalled 4 crashes... one guy dumped his when he was leaving from tech inspection, said his boot got caught on his peg. He crashed in the rattlesnake later on. He seemed to be pushing pretty hard throughout the day. The 2nd ZX10 was crashed twice also. The guy crashed on the wet track shortly after it stopped raining... then he went too hot into the rattlesnake and lowsided in teh grass. His bike was REALLY messed up.

Re: LSTD 6/3 and CMRA Race 6/4-6/5

I had no desire to get timed, haha... I had so much working against me that I was just out there for the fun of it this time. No competitive nature in me this trackday.

Although, when I passed the GSXR1000 on the outside of Big Bend that ruled... and the time I dragged the 600RR down the straight after Little Bend, that ruled as well, hahaha.

Re: LSTD 6/3 and CMRA Race 6/4-6/5

Yeah... nice and stock F4i. I was really contemplating selling it and getting a 600RR or 1000RR but after this weekend I fell back in love with my bike. Yeah it's not the fastest or best handling, but I still think it's the pretties bike in the paddock and it gets me around ok. I do need to definitely need to get the front forks Race Tech'd and some rearsets though...
