    I like WP,

    it is a track that makes you work hard for your turns :) It is very hard on the RHS of your tyre thats for sure, as there really is only one left hander. Although that one left hander is the hardest corner to get right!

    here are a couple of vids from my first WP trackday on my track bike. And my first ever experience of race pattern shift....

    I am on a 95 ZX6R, and my mate is on a ZX9R.

  14. hey MG,

    that is funny as hell... that is me on my old road 05 ZX6R.... on my second ever track day! Unfortunately that bike met an unfortunate end on Mt BawBaw last year :( So thats why i have the 95 ZX6R track bike now ;)

    I also lost all my vids etc after a bloody PC crash of a mega scale! So was funny to see that one again! I think i originally posted it on Metacafe... not sure now, will have to look for it!

    *EDIT* Found it! http://www.metacafe.com/watch/200009/the_first_session/

    lol and another from Oran Park......

    Cheers MG as I had pretty much thought I had lost all this stuff! I had not thought about where I had posted it! You spurred me into tracking it down!
