The other image, I have tried marking the best lines, and the apexes(its all theoretically done, I have seen the track from outside, never been on it), based on the the way the turns looked to me. They might be VERY different in reality, I undestand.
I would not mind hearing about what you think about those lines and all :biggthumpup:
i think most people take different lines.. personally, my lines arent the same very often in some corners.. depends on my speed as to which line i take...

Re: I know it's a little early, but 09/05/05

when you get in the middle of 1 ( as a new rider ) then you will be slowing down for T1, there is a bump on the outside line at the end of T1 that will send you offroading.

Most new guys will be slowing down way before T1. Especially when the speedo says 160mph and you just hit a big bump and caught air. :laughing6:

Sweet. I was a little worried about not having anyone to hang with. See you guys there!

Anything I should bring? Like pop up tent, chairs, ice chests?? Also, I have a truck with ramps/straps if anyone needs a ride.
