I was paranoid about missing the sighting lap and starting from pit lane all weekend, lol (pitted on the other side of the hill by the race shop).

That was impressive to watch...

Thanks man ! I was a little paranoid the first few turns because i still didnt get to break in the tires, brand new still had stickers on them

We had issues hearing the calls all weekend, probably best to order a radio

Lookin good. I'd recommend pairing up with a 300 or 500 cc lightweight endurance team. You'll be passing 250's at a rate of 5 or 10 per lap. This will build confidence in your ability to pick out good passing spots and quickly size up slower riders. Your first two laps looked pretty tentative in the passing department. I know, I know, not your forte since you are normally all clear out front, LOL.
