Does ME know about the huge Barf turnout that will be going down on the 13th?

Thanks for the great writeup, I'll be there on the 13th and you can bet that I'll be trying to imitate Michael's' lines.
1:49? not even in my dreams, but I'd be stoked with a 2:15.
Thanks for the post!!!!!

If you get the chance, sign up for PTT's next fast way around T-Hill. It will take big chunks off your lap time.

From what M.E. told me, it is going to be even better than the last one. It sounds like they are going to have much more support and feedback.

The last school was off the hook. It helped me a LOT.

Thanks for the advice Jake, I'd love to sign up for one of those days. This Monday will be my second trackday (both at T-hill). The first one was spent trying to overcome that nervous, excited, "oh my God I'm on a track" feeling.
I spent most of the day in C group, and it wasn't until I bumped up to B for the last few sessions that I was finally able to follow some faster riders and get an idea of the best lines to take. I think I managed a 2:22, which is by no means fast, but I was happy with it.
This walk through was very helpful in gaining some insight into corners that had me stumped; Transition from T2 into 3, and the best line through 14 and 15. I can't imagine how helpful a school would be. It would probably be like night and day for me.
I'll definitely look into it.

You betcha; there's going to be a crew of 10+ barfers that I ride with going.

I just got back from the Red Shift Laguna trackday; it was amazing. The instructors there helped me out on my first day there by talking thru the track like Mike did, but without the Earnest flair. I posted a 1:39.86, which I'm told is a decent time. I couldn't have come up to speed so quickly without their tutelage. I can't wait to put Mike’s tricks to the test on Mon.

There is a CLASS school coming up at T-hill in October that I was thinking about going to, however I WOULD GO TO ANOTHER PTT SCHOOL in a heartbeat in the fall over those guys.

So who else would love to do a winter/fall PTT FAST WAY AROUND THE TRACK SCHOOL?? Last one was great but I'd bet the second will much more refined, sign me up now.

Depends on how shoulder #2 holds up. I was planning on having it done in Nov.
