[B]All track junkies please note[/B]

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' started by jap, Mar 19, 2012.

  1. All track junkies please note - If you get a chance you must have a crack at a race meeting. I did my first interclub on Sunday at the Island and it was way better than a track/ride day, a total buzz. I raced my 02 ZX6R in the novice race and the pre-modern class, I was more than happy with my results and times. Thanks to Gilesy for helping out on the day.

    Jap - in :dance: :biker: :cheeky:

  10. At the NR track day, you were in the novice group, but you well and truly belonged in a higher group. I reckon you'll love it! (y)
  11. haha thanks, was just hesitant to jump up (though in hindsight, perfect opportunity!) next time!

    not sure if i introduced myself, you were on the viffer?
  12. Yep, when you're lapping the other kids in the class, it's time to move up ;)

  14. Might be Jap?
  15. Yes, that was me... who you lapped on the odd occasion... ;)

    You were certainly fast through the corners! (y) Be a devil... Go up a group! :biker:
    (it will help us lesser mortals to look better by not being passed as much... :cheeky: )
  16. Looks like jap.
  17. Love it!

    I also did my first actual race meeting not long ago, and can't wait to go again. I didn't win anything, but I passed a lot more people than passed me and I did score fastest lap in my first two ever races. Pretty happy with that. So I decided to be a trifle more cautious on the Sunday, because I've seen what a rush of blood to the head can do when your first efforts are immediately successful. My Sunday results were about the same (place wise) as before, but I didn't score any more fastest laps. Three or four people who'd been taking it very easy in the slow / beginner group on the Saturday suddenly found a set of big ones on the Sunday and dropped about 8 seconds a lap overnight.

    There's another meeting this weekend, which I can't do because I still have plaster on my leg, but the next one (end of March) I should just about be able to get there.
  18. Hey Daz,
    Thanks for the pic mate and for all your hard work at the loop. =D>

  19. plaster? you didnt throw your bike at the ground did you?
  20. Good to see you had fun Jap! The novice race was great with big numbers (31 on the grid!) and start line was pretty funny when everyone was lost on their position, but we got it sorted :). No crashes from what I remember and was awesome weather for you novices :).

    You managed some good times for a novice :)
