MSRH CW results

First off thanks to EVERYONE who made such a beautiful day to ride even better. Perfect weather, and not one second of track time lost to accidents. I'd say the CW consensus was a 98% positive so we'll definately be doing more next sesason, probably one each way per month. Much more technical CW and the times seemed slower despite the fact most riders felt they were lapping faster thatn CCW.
Dr. Gonzo gets the Iron Man award for runnong every minute of every session. Dude you were walking like I felt. Woody 2.0 was sickness for the two sessions I rode him and actually lapped faster on the '07 in only two sessions. Potential is looking better!!
Thanks to the staff........Larry, Bill, Alanzo, Derek, Jason, Jimmy, Alan, you guys rocked today and were a big part of the no crashes, I thank you all.


Lets hear what the other riders think....................

i loved it. the wall is no longer a distraction whatsoever. it takes some getting used to....because you THINK you know where you're going and stuff because you know the track the other way.....but oh man.....i sure as was wrong. it's definately a technical track....and THE LAUNCH WAS ABSOLUTELY THE FUNNEST TURN NOW.

thanks Buck and the longhorn crew for a much needed trackday....it was beautiful outside.....and i wish i could've been an iron man like mr. gonzo.

I had a great time today! Thanks! Being able to run MSRH backwards was a great change of pace. I don't want to have to drive for hours to get to a track when I have one 40 minutes from my house. Now I can look forward to essentially running two tracks at the same location close to home. Yes, there were new challenges. THAT is what makes it so nice. MSRH is a completely different track when you run it backwards. That may sound like common sense but when you run it, you get a whole new appreciation for it.

I can't wait till next year, if my schedule permits, I'll be alternating directions every month.

Mike

I really enjoyed it. It is certainly more technical, but I like that. There was the potential for a crashfest, but it never happened. Congrats to everyone for some good riding, and congrats to LMS & crew for some solid work.

Totally different animal cw! Took some getting used to, but was a lot of fun. What a workout! Will definitely be sore tomorrow. Sorry I had to leave early-but sometimes when work calls we have to answer. Look forward to more days running both directions. Thanks to Buck and crew for an awesome day. Good to see Jason on a new bike!

I have to second what Tony said. The track seemed so familiar
but was so foreign. I got there late but had a great time learning
the "new" track. I thought it was cool that everyone was starting
from scratch today. Sure the fast guys would be fast but no one
had any experience with this layout. I think everyone who bailed
because of running CW really missed out. Don't get me wrong,
running a track you know is cool but I enjoyed the challenge.
Thanks to Buck, Alonzo, Derek, Bill and the whole Hee-Haw Gang.

Thanks Buck and crew for a great day. Taking the time to explain where the potential for disaster was and how to avoid it at the beginning of the day really made a difference. Not only did Gonzo win the ironman but he made a special effort to walk the paddock between sessions and help with lines, braking points, etc..... As always everyone was very curteous and quick to come make a face to face explanation or apology for close passes or running someone wide. My son and I had a freaking blast. Can't get enough of the feeling coming across the launch down into the horseshoe.

I couldn't sleep the night before, because I kept running the track backwards in my head. I was a little apprehensive at first but I am SO glad I went because it was really fun.
A whole new track close to home. Buck was right tho' it is punishing to ride CW. So much more technical.
The weather was perfect, the LMS crew was their usual helpful selves and the riding was awesome.

DO NOT let yourself miss the chance to experience a trackday with the LMS guys. And don't let CW scare you away it is a blast!

MSRH backwards FTW!!!

It's like having a new track to choose from, the surroundings and settings are all the same but the layout is oh so different...I love it. I'm still feeling the rush from the launch... ohhh man I can't wait to go back and ride CW again.

A huge thanks to Buck and MSRH for trying something new and allowing us to run the track backwards...

my legs...they feel like jello...

What can I say....the day was awesome, great weather conditions (seems like a friggin' first this year) no crashes and totally spent after the last session of the day.
CW the track as mentioned flows much better - from the old turn 17 to the back straight-away leading into the diamonds edge the track really has a rhythm and flow when you get cooking. The diamonds edge is still a beast but I give CW thumbs up too!

Buck and staff - you provided another great day with more track time than most could handle it appears. THANK YOU !!
And hey this old man ran every session too!

Awesome day! Probably not the best day for me to try different rake angles/triple offsets, but that's another story.

Took a couple of sessions but started to put it together in the 3rd. Turns 17-16-15 are the new bomb! It's one big triple-apex turn at full tilt... The launch-keyhole-bus stop section is just as fun as it was CCW, tho' you have to be careful on the gas out of the exits. Diamond's edge? Well, I still suck as much CW as I did CCW... And last but not least, the entry into the carousel (VERY HIGH SPEED) separates the bold from the...well, less bold.

I see double Saturday-Sunday track days in our future! One direction on Saturday and the other on Sunday! Seriously, great times mixing it up with you guys and gals...AND NO ONE WENT DOWN! Great job!

Big thanks to Buck and crew!

Like I already said, I had a great time. I just realized something and I have to throw it out there.

SO now we can say that LMS GOES BOTH WAYS!

After the morning session my afternoon times were handing around 1:59's consistently with one in the 1:56 range...but keep in mind I'm slow and old..these are 4-5 seconds off the CCW times for me at tihis time.

Had a great time Saturday. CW direction definitely presents new challenges and variety to keep everything interesting and motivating.

Thanks to Buck and the crew for another successful event and all their efforts to keep things fresh and exciting!
