A "Good" Line @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

i know there are many different lines you can take around a track but i was hoping somebody could take the time to put up a link to a video of a good line to take around TWS (Texas World Speedway). nothing crazy seeing as i am level 2. one lap is good. and commentary would be badass.

------I havent been to a track day in about 9 months and ill be going to TWS (Texas World Speedway) this summer. i was thinking maybe i could study a good line, compare it to mine,and study the track as well while i wait for the trackday to come thatway ill kinda know what to practice and have a lot of things set in my mind. cause honestly i never know if im taking a good line, or a crappy one.

agreed. you will never know what you're doing right/wrong unless somebody that knows what they're doing is following you and gives you the feedback. have someone with a camera mount follow you for a few laps, go back, and review the tape. you'll be suprised.

^^ No problem.
Use that as a general guide to the turns and track. Then go out there and follow someone with experience and really look at the surface for yourself. Track surfaces change over time with normal wear and from repairs.

don't think you'll find reading material like that for MSRH, but there are plenty of fast riders who can show you the "fast line" out there. again, the fast line for some riders may not be the fast line for every riders.
