Head Start on a New Track NOOBS READ!
I'm in no position to advise anyone (NOOB myself) but I thought I'd share this as it helps me a lot. I do this before each trackday and I think it saves a lot of time just getting to know where you're at out there.
First, find a video of someone running the track you're going to, like this one of MSRH. (the second one in this thread is better)
Next, find a pic of the track you're going to, like this one of MSRH.
Now do what you can to get both on your computer screen at the same time. Start the video, figure out where the rider is on the track and follow them around on the picture with your mouse pointer. Do it for several laps.
I did this before my first trip to TWS (Texas World Speedway) and was surprised at how familiar the track seemed once I got there. Hope this helps and if not, WTF do I know anyway?

I like that! I think it will help me when riding the track.
