Finally got to track my bike....and needless to say i'm hooked! Ended up going to Summit Main with Roger Lyle's group. Weather was shitty (44 deg and light rain all day) but I still got two sessions in before the track was super slippery. First session was really slow since we were stuck behind a group for awhile which was probably good for me to concentrate on track layout. Second session I got out on my own for a bit without a control rider and had a blast. I was still taking it really easy and not pushing the braking zones since it was wet and cold, but I had a blast. I was hoping the rain would let up so that I could get more time in but everyone basically left. Track was so slippery that two intermediate guys second session didn't even get out of the pit area before they hit the ground. 6 people went down out of about 40 so I didn't want to push my luck in the afternoon when only 4 people out of all of the groups went out.
I think the guys I might go later this month but we aren't going to pre-register and only going if weather is descent. It sucks dropping $200 on a cold rain day. I'm already worried about how i'm going to afford the ammount of track days i'm going to want to do next year! Seriously debating doing some side work just to pay for some extra track days.
Glad to hear you had a good time, at least for a couple of sessions. I was at NJMP Lightning last weekend and Sunday was about 57 deg. and raining. Rode about 3 sessions worth and a couple of people crashed out, but you can learn work on a lot riding in the rain, i.e. your lines, body positioning, and being smooth. Welcome to the addiction.
it really is like a crack addiction. wait til you start prostituting yourself for track days...
then wait until you start racing. It's a vicious, vicious cycle...haha
