Woopies Instruction

After not track riding for a year I spent some time working with Woopie and let me tell you I already rebuilt my confidence and then some after less than one day.

I highly suggest working with Woop, he has the unique ability and knowledge to ride smooth (stay on line) throttle and brake correctly and the most important part....articulate and teach others to do the same.

After following Woop around the track a couple times I felt comfortable enough to focus on working on a few of my weak points where at my last few track days I was too busy focusing on things that should be second nature IF YOUR ON THE LINE. Once I was comfortable on the line I was calmer, working less to fight the bike, smoother and could spend more time thinking rather than reacting.

Woops the man!
