So who is going to come out for the trackday at Summit Point on April 21st?

I will be and it sounds like Wadehead will be also.

Ya my slow ass will be their! Can't wait to have some more fun! It's only 175 bucks and being a Tuesday not a bunch of traffic. Perfect reason to call in sick!:thumbsup:

Weather is looking good for Tuesday. Not really hot or too cold. A little chance of the wet stuff around 3pm. I hope it is a low turn out. Just more seat time for the people that come out.

Well considering it was my first time at the track and it was wet, I was really slow. But tomorrow I will find out how I do on a dry track. The track is slicker than snot in the rain. I wish they would fix the track instead of patching it but dry conditions the patch work doesn't really effect you unlike the uneven spots in the pavement around Turns 5,6.

turns 6 and 7 you should be able to stay on the new patch the whole way through both those turns. i found as long as you stayed away from the seams you are fine. obviously you have to transition onto them but i mean as long as you dont run along a seam. turn 3 looks bumpy as hell but if you keep it tight to the curbing its fairly smooth.

Damn I am slow. First time riding in the racer group and wow. I had maybe 1.5-2 feet between me and the outside of the track going in T10 and got blown by like standing still! But damn it was cool. I learned a lot more from some of the other racers out their and found a group of people willing to answer questions about set-up and different approaches to the turns. Learned that I blew about 4 of the turns and left them wide open to get stuffed. I gotta say thanks to the other racers out their. You guys gave me some room and let this slow and old fart do his thing. I don't think I held up anyone really since their was plenty of room for getting around people. I know I wasn't the slowest out their actually picked up the pace and passed a few people.

Another awesome day and very few on track problems! Good turn out and awesome track conditions once the sun came out. To bad it started hailing around 2pm. I pretty much called it a day and went home.

Thanks to anyone else that was their from this board.
