Who rode the track this weekend?

I was out there spectating with a buddy. I saw Alonzo and Deano, but everyone else were complete strangers it seemed.

I plan on going in June to do a trackday with a buddy. Anyone else planning on going?

Truthfully no.

I sat in on a level 1 class session and there were only 8 of us in the room. On track however, there were more. Maybe they had a bunch of instructors?

It's my 1st trackday as well so I figured I'd start at the bottom. Hopefully I get enough space to actually put a decent time in.

I don't think they let you free till after lunch, That's the only bad thing. Good idea on running lvl 1 1st though.

My quickest time out there is a 1:46, but that was ages ago and on my then full race r6.

Let's do it, man.

Any chance you could come up to the Beyond the Track meeting this week? If not, let me know if you're ever in Houston and we can try to meet up.

Other than that, I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna be at MSRH on June 3rd or 30th...
