Send an email to steve@lstd.com and ask about our new program for intermediate and advanced riders as it's not ready for public release yet. Our planned debut is at Cresson on March 22nd considering all goes well with our pilot at ECR.

That's good, but that would place you in the minority imho.

Many people equate the enjoyment of riding/ paying for track time with the above statement. It's a direct translation to a provider's structure and organization that makes that happen; hence my comments about it.

But if that isn't your concern, that's good on 'ya.

Well Bubby is dead sexy in leathers so you should prolly stay away from him. I think he is riding intermediate that day so he can get Irak back on track!(or should I say keep Irak on the track) You can't go wrong with Tony but beware he likes to talk ALOT! but he will give you some awesome advice and have a lot of fun at the same time.

Irak's lines and body positioning are good, he just needs to build confidence!

Tony does talk alot, but just listening to the guy will make you faster...

My 2 pennies, it doesn't matter what group you are in so long as you are having fun.

That being said, I've done 4 days on a SV and 2 on a SM, all in novice, and I am fine being in "that" group. I still continue to learn little things about body position, lines, etc. Bored being in novice, hook up with an instructor and chase them a few laps or have them follow you, guaranteed to way to make the most of the day.

i might talk a lot...and 90% of what i say is not related to anything that pertains to track riding techniques....but i can guarantee you will have the time of your life and walk away a better rider and a bigger smile on your face

as jason canuck mentioned.....it's all about fun. learning and improving is the byproduct

C=Novice
B=Intermediate
A=Advanced/Race
I was working with one of the novices this past sunday. We safely lapped most of the C group. You are allowed to pass if you are following an instructor. Look me up on the 21st. I'll be more than happy to work with you!

You are indeed allowed to pass later in the morning and in the afternoon. However during the parade/paced sesssion you're not.
