Is anyone planning on going up to TWS (Texas World Speedway) tonight to camp out? If so would you have room for one more? I can pay for gas if you like. Please let me know.

I wish I would have seen these two posts sooner because bignmz04 drove up there in a motor home with plenty of room to spare.

Was a great day to ride!

...except I was just cornerworking. My throttle hand was twitching all day, but the only action it saw was the walkie talkie button.

I can pick a Tuono out of the crowd easily, but I'll need a little more detail (number, leather/helmet color) if I'm going to pull pics of a GSXR.

I didn't really take all that many pics though. So far everyone I've looked for hasn't been in the pics I took. I only had the camera out for the last session of each group.

Yeah, legs sore too but sure was fun! Sounds like a few more junkies were born yesterday.


Squeak - what corner were you in? 13?

Ha ha. I was thinking the same thing sort of. As I zoomed by (turn 4) in the morning, I thought "that must be Squeaky." But that's not the best time to stop and shake hands...

I am a level 1 instructor, Black RC51 (w/ Red Honda Wings) and Black/Silver leathers. This was taken at the previous TWS (Texas World Speedway) track day, but it is what I would have looked like because this was in turn 4 as well...

I'll finish going through what I took, but it was just a point-n-shoot.

#12 was pretty photogenic. I got a few of him (let me know if anyone knows who it was)

Ha ha ha, 2 was my next guess based on your photos. I heard there wasn't anyone in 2 in the morning when the first Lvl4 incident happened so I guess that's why they moved you there?

There was someone in 2 all day, but he had to watch them coming off the bank dropping into 1 and through 2. I was in 4 watching them exit 3, through 4, and safely into 5.

Even with people standing there with arms waving, I couldn't see the guy or the bike that ran off before 3 because of the ditch. We called it based on whoever was waving their arms. :/:

That was my wife and some friends waving for some help, there wasn't a cornerworker there, One of my buddies who wasn't riding actually jump the retaining wall to go and help the guy, He was knocked out cold for a good 5-8 minutes.
