TIS track days (next: 03/29, rookies race on 3/30)

Postby Beast619 » 14 Mar 2008, 12:00

Well Robby and I made it out to TIS on Thursday 3-13-08. We got there at about 10:30am and the place was completely vacant except for the workers. We paid $300 for one session, but ended up staying til 1:00pm without paying anymore. In the afternoon a few more guys came out. Boss Jimmy from GMC, who we met on Sunday, was there with a few other big bikes, RC51s, GSXR1000, R6, and a Ninja.

Robby did a little experimental helmet cam action. So here it is. Robby is taping on his NSR, I'm on the FZ in front.

Yeah, I was in a rush when we left and brought the wrong helmet, I'm an idiot. So it was a pain in the ass because the camera and my helmet didn't fit well, so I was always moving it around. Plus it was hard paying attention to the camera while keeping up with Kyle. Anyway, I will do more video on Saturday if the weather permits.

It was awesome having the track to ourselves though. Well worth it.

got in touch with that other foreigner we saw one time who rides an fzr. he said hes coming out tommorow, but looks like orion's moving up to a 400 so i dunno if his FZR will be out there. Hopefully the weather will hold up. I've been looking at some pretty bad forecasts... Hopefully we'll get some more info on whats exactly involved in starting up our own team.

Great fun today. I apologize for thinking iix23 was anything less than a really nice guy....he's a bit full of himself...but he's French Canadian, and that's part of their culture. I was wrong to judge him so quickly and I apologize. I wanna thank everyone for putting up with me and being hospitable. Lots of fun to be had at TIS (aka GAMFA) on a Saturday morning.

It was a great day, considering the weather report was saying thunderstorms. It was excellent meeting a couple of new people (Kyle, Jorge). Temple, sorry for the spill, but it happens. Glad nothing serious happened. It will make you a better rider for sure. Glad to finally see Marcello and Orion out on the track. Hey Marcello are we going to see you on an NSR soon?? Even mordeath showed his face, but I was a little disappointed that you weren't wearing your mohawk helmet. :) I think maybe my third session I might have shaved a second off my time, we need a stopwatch out there.

I guess next Sunday, they are holding a "rookies race." You don't need a racing license for it. It is basically going to be time trials with transponders. There will be no pole positions. I haven't decided if I will do it, but I will be out there next Saturday for sure. I think Kyle will have a new rear suspension and a few other goodies to try out at the track.

I got you on video for a full lap. You did it in 67 seconds....but I'm sure that wasn't you best lap of the day as there was quite a bit of traffic slowing you down that lap.

Damn! What time did everyone get there? I was there at 9, waited for about an hour watching some guys "racing" in their black cars, then got bored, went for a ride, think I saw Mordeth at the entrance to the 118, and just never made it back.
The idea of racing is about as exciting as it gets, though I'd have to get a LOT better!! That's a great excuse to go riding more often. Probably get a new bike, too, or a second job to pay for the upgrades.

I would like to see that video, my best time so far that was actually timed was a 63 or 64. I really need to get that down to 60, but that ain't going to be easy.
