Exclamation TEXAS TRACK DAYS 2/24

The day was absolutely incredible! Meril and Manu ran a very tight ship. All of the groups were on schedule, the grid and corner workers were first class, and the students all showed marked improvement by the end of the day. I even had one student drop from a 2:30+ down to a 2:07! The novice instructor/student ratio was 1:1, so they really got lots of attention.

Overall I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and flow of the whole day. If you're considering doing a track day this year, especially if it's your first time, I strongly encourage you to check us out. I am most assured you will leave with the same feeling I did!

It was a priviledge to work with such a great group of instructors and staff!

to TEXAS TRACK DAYS, and a great year ahead

Meril and Manu did a fantastic job this weekend as well as all the instructors and corner workers. The service they offered was second to none. Running both Saturdays and Sundays really gives everyone an opportunity to get out there

The whole weekend ran very smooth and like Tim mentioned lots of 1 on 1 time with the Novice Group who learned alot and just as important had fun.

See you all at the next one for sure

It was good to see all of you out there yesterday. MSRH has come along way since they first opened.

Everything was running super smooth - hats off to Texas Trackdays. The suspension guy had some good info too!

Everyone else has hit the nail on the head. From an instructors stand point, you really get alot of time with your students and can really concentrate on their weak points and help them improve upon them. Compared to some other track days I've been to, I think thats great for a new rider. You don't learn alot of the bad habits some of us did right off the bat with someone watching you all day, and two of the guys I were working with were very similar to Godsuki's and improved tremendously throughout the day. So again, hats off to Meril and Mamu for putting together such a great organization! See you guys at the track.

I was impressed with the way Meril and Manu set up Novice instruction... they designed it to be a very dynamic and "flowy" group, suitable for both the super-green noobies AND those just needing a refresher.

On track, instructors were given full control of their student, so they could progress AT THEIR OWN PACE... "tailor-made", if you will.

^^^He only had one business card with him so I posted it on the newbie classroom dry-erase board, circled it, and wrote "PHOTOS" in big red letters...^^^

But no, I don't know who he was...

I guess that didn't really help, did it?
