7 whole laps.... wow
« on: May 09, 2006, 10:41:44 am »
Gosh, 7 lap sprint races at BHF... I hope no one worked themselves too hard ::)

Are americans so lazy that can't even do 8 laps in a row?
 
Or is that CCS's attempt to be "Green" and help save gas?

Squeezing in a 2 hour endurance race is not easy without cutting something...

Combined GT races and 1 lap shorter sprints were the result I guess...  I found the 7 lappers fun!  Go balls out as hard as humanly possible for 7 laps.  Now that's a sprint!

If you want to do 8 laps, the pit bike fee is going to go up...

Last year they were cutting it close to the mandatory event cutoff times at BHF.

Dang...  didn't see that...  Makes me glad I'm running GTO...  I think we got in 14 or 17 laps this weekend, and that was in THICK traffic.

GTO was lots of fun Saturday.. and the first race I've ever tried.  Definitely felt like I got my money's worth. ;D

Let's see.... 7 lap sprints, a 78 lap Team Challenge and we finished right at 5pm.

Guess we could do 8 laps sprints and cut out some of the other stuff...... like throw away the red flag, send out the ambulance for only the even number races (sorry if you crash in an odd numbered race, you should have been more careful!), bike pickups only at the end of the day, etc.

I love to see critical comments from people who weren't even there!

Hey back in my day sonny we did 9 lap sprints, on crappy skinny tires, with bike that had spindley little fork tubes and no suspension.. and we liked it..
Our GT races were 50 miles....

I'd like to see you do 50 miles on a 1991 ZX-6 D model with no front end suspension a crappy Fox shock and worthless EBC brake pads....

Last weekend I was getting fat over at Putnam and I was on the track for 10 laps in a row when I got around to getting out on the track... And I had lots of fun doing it.

Whatever
