Here is the calender http://www.gamfa.com.tw/modules/piCal/
When is the next Racing License test? Does anyone have a translation of the test or could write a quick one up, or a quick English Version of the rules we should know...
License tests are the first saturday of the month. Still no translation, but its not really necessary..
How about the next Rookies race?
How about some riding pointers to get around the LongTan track quicker and smoother.
The best thing you could use now would be practice and good tires. I can tell you more about the conditions for each corner next time we're out there.
How about Lap Times for the different classes of bikes, like, if I want to at least look competitive on my NSR, even if I am towards the back of the field, but not so I am being lapped every 5 or so laps, what should I be doing for a lap.
Here are the lap times from the race before last. http://www.gamfa.com.tw/modules/tinyd0/ ... C2T-2.html
How long is the usual race? How long is the track?
Last time was 12 laps, the time before 11 laps, the track is 1.4km I believe
I would like to race, (in a team) but I don't want to be an embarressment to the team...
I'm still working on that myself...
TaipeiSean wrote:Well, as for joining the team... I need to get my times down a bit. I gave my 7 year old son the challenge of timing me today. He used the lap timing function on his cellphone to time 5 laps in a row. He did this during the beginning of my first session. Ha, just getting used to the track again, as well as my new tyres and brakes...
So what was the damage??? 1m:30s.99 WHAT!!! Didn't think I was that slow... My boy said he started and stopped the clock when the bike was at the same place... He didn't clock me during my second session, but I sure felt like I was getting through some parts of the track quicker after trying Mordeth's tip, and beng a little bit braver. Ha, maybe I got it down to 1m:25s.
So, at this rate, I will be lapped every 2 or 3 laps by the fast bikes in a race...
But anyway, it was still a blast out there today.
