Ok please help me understand that lowside
What the is the launch?
All I could see is the rear wheel going away yet I get the impression something happened up from to cause it. Is that what usually happens? Something not so easy to see happens in front to cause the rear to go? Just trying to understand these type of spills so hopefully I’ll do less of them myself

He was pushing to hard trying to stay with Chris. On the same lap he ran wide going into T2. He did the same coming over the launch. He's off line and running wide try to make the turn. That's not the braking zone for that turn. You brake before the launch for that turn. And after (where in tucked the front) for the next turn.

Ok I understand, I guess, a little
I guess better understanding will come to me in time. This is one subject I’d really rather learn by something other than my own mistakes.

This track is pretty much flat all the way around, except for this area that they call "the launch". It's a rise in the pavement like a small berm, as soon as you crest it, the pavement falls off and in to a turn pretty abruptly.

When you come out on to this track, you'll come around what is now turn 1, followed by a fast kink to the left, and then to "the launch".

On your siting lap for your first session on the 4th, take your time and pay attention to the pavement too. It's bumpy and has some patches.

Here's the track map. We mostly run it Clockwise now which is backwards. Jimmy ate it between T13 and T12.

Ok I’ve been on that track and now I understand what we’re calling the launch and the turns after it where he ate it. It’s all much clearer to me now, Thanks!
