Good book, but starting to become a little outdated, IMHO.

If it's your first trackday, do yourself a favor and sign up for the rider's school class.

Sign them up for the riders school or you can send them over my way (which will probably be close to your way) after lunch.

And, if you get with me in the morning before I head out to my corner we can discuss what they should work on in the morning.
