Maybe for you, but I've never spent $10,000 in a year on all those combined.

However, it is a lot more fun.

i would say around 2:00 or faster and not get all spooked or off because someone just stuffed you to the edge of you running off the track.

because the advanced group is the group with no passing rules, just be responsible about it.

i did a trackday with (insert whoever you think here) and stuffed someone really close, elbows, legs, and probably some paint rubbing......to have them go off and complain to (insert whoever you think here) and was scolded for making that pass. it was either pass, or run into their rear wheel, which probably would've made me go down, so i made the pass. i did however give a "my bad" wave to them as i wheelied over wheelie hill after the pass was made.

moral of the story, if you run advanced.....be comfortable with close riding and unfriendly passing.

I ran off later, in the vid, trying to pass on the outside of turn 12. These are 2:00 laps. I have a lap timer. a new one that works.




This next video is my bike cam, running same times, but took off in front of some fast guys. I get passed by Wes, Derek and I think Jason. (I dont know who that was on the front straight at the begining) and I dont know who that was that passed 3 of us in the horseshoe. These 2 vids give you an idea of what it is like getting passed runnin 2flats and what it is like passing with 58's-2 flats. I would consider 00's to be mid pack. Can anyone name the guys that were passing me?

Yeah, I know LSTD does that, they've done it for years that way. The only thing that's wrong is that every time my brother has been to an LSTD event and gotten instruction, it was 1:1, not 3:1 and that's why when i get ready to do some trackdays, i'm doing it with these guys.

Like dude with the nice said, nothing like the original.

Hmmm....never heard of them offering 1:1

Could be wrong though

we actually do try in most cases to instruct at a 1 on 1 basis.
