Ty, Mike Sanchez and Schwantz.

I'm making a list of all the track schools I want to do next year...thanks for the information! It will be fun to do a lot of 'mini-breaks' instead of one long expensive vacation that I have to wait all year for

I think it depends upon how you learn best. I've seen some guys come out of the Spencer school and pick up wicked speed, but seen the same kind of laptime improvement with a little one on one with a knowledgeable person.

I started out with a local school - it was local when I lived in Virginia - called Cornerspeed. I think a school is an excellent way to start and develop good habits. After a couple of years, I decided to try Schwantz. Loved every minute of it. Didn't walk away with any deep dark secrets, but on the track with the likes of Trey Batey, Lee Acree, Opie Caylor, Britt Turkington how can you not pick up some tips? Plus it's at Road Atlanta!

Swift,

Don't forget as well that you have a good relationship with several top expert riders and a CMRA license that could put you at Oakhill with any of them.

Oak Hill scares the outta me now

But you are correct.
There are many folks who I know would be willing to help.
Maybe I'll just ask for some guidance next season.

Several of them could probably do a day with you at Cresson as well.
