The most we do is 1 instructor to 2 students. Most of the time, it's 1 instructor/ 1 student. Been that way for years.

As for lap times Randy, don't get too wrapped up in that. The advanced group is more marked by folks who are predictable, capable, and don't get spooked. I can be on an SV running 56's at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with the same folks who are running mid-40's and not have a problem one.

Usually though, by the time someone gets to the point where they're able to run lower or at 2:00, they've just about made it to the level of riding predictably and capably too

So Godzuki can do 1:41's at MSRH and Brena can can 1:50 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). What does that classify them as?

I can?? I wish I could run a 1:50 or even consistent low 50s but I have never said I could run a 1:50 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I am stuck in the upper 50s and am pretty happy with that for now.

I know it was a dumb question but I thought it would make for some interesting opinions, and it did.
I think Tom (Mr. Miyagi) said it best with this. ďThe advanced group is more marked by folks who are predictable, capable, and don't get spooked.Ē
I voted 2-2:05 cuz thatís where Iím at. If I were under 2:00 I probably would have voted for that just to encourage crowd control. If youíre faster you wonít have a hard time passing me and I think itís cool as when it gets close. I canít take the rules and waiting to pass in the lower levels and I got yelled last time I tried even though Iím sure I didnít break them.

Having done several trackdays at TWS (Texas World Speedway), I voted for 2:00-2:05. This is more than fast enough to not be in the way and/or dangerous. Additionally, to be able to run 2:00, you have to (for the most part) use the correct line and be somewhat smooth...except Curt - he uses power, technology and 300lbs of muscle...
