Sounds like others are as anxious as wel are! :hail

... and remember, for those who had a credit from the Nov. 22nd event, you don't HAVE TO use it for the first one of the season because it's good all year.

Hmmmmmmmmmm. My birthday is Feb 7th. :D Would make a good way to spend the day off I'm going to take. Especially since I didn't get a chance to put the TL on the track ONCE last year. :rant

It's an additional $50 and you even get to participate in a "mock race" (4 laps I think)at the end of the day. That alone is worth the price of admission. :)

YamaHamer... yup... a track time + you get to handle your CMRA class... and as Mike said, the mock-race can give you a taste of racing.

For what it's worth, all money that we collect from the CMRA Racing License School is sent back to the club itself. Our part to help an awesome club.

Tough crowd man! ;)

YamaHamer-AL said:so what you're saying is it matters not if you're fast or not, more about being safe and knowing the rules?
Yama... basically yes. The link that Reyndogg posted gives more info, but in a nutshell, the course is not really a RIDING school, but covers rules, on/off-track etiquette, suggestions on how to keep track of races, etc.

We do suggest that people who are considering going racing get some track time under their belt beforehand. Racing is a total blast, but we have had a few come through the class that did one track day and decided that was enough... then showed up for their first race and was not really comfortable with the environment... yet. :D

RACING = FUN!!!

The mock race is a blast. Like others have said, it gives you a true taste of how racing will be. Passing the test (or like Cathy says, beating me) is easy as 1-2-3. Don't get too worked up over it though just pay attention in class and ask questions. I'll see you on the track next season.

Cathy, running you off the track would be the only way I can beat you in a race. You've got nothing to worry about with me. Trust me.

I agree with you Jeff. Unfortunately I was one of the dorks that did one trackday and thought I could do it after that. Boy was I wrong!

Yamahamer, do as many trackdays as possible between now and then. Especially if you plan to do endurance racing. There will be some fast guys (like Mike and Jeff) zooming past you during the race within inches of you. And you need to make sure you can handle that and keep your line.

Ok, I know I should know this already, but I'm going to ask again anyway.

1. Is it a problem if my inspection/registration is expired? I know, I know, I'm just lazy :redlip
2. It doesn't specify for the Beginner group, but is it safe to assume that I'll need leather riding pants?
3. Would I be able to bum a ride in a truck (and trailer my bike) from someone in Austin, not for this track day, but for one in the short term future?
4. Will someone bring a camera to take pictures and prove to the world how much I really suck? :nanana

1. Not a problem as long as you don't ride to the track.
2. Yes, you will need leather pants.
3. Post a thread a week prior asking for trailer space and a ride for the event you plan to make.
4. I think both RS and LSTD has a photographer taking pictures at the events that you can buy. If you don't want to buy then you need to bring your own photographer.
