Freaking puggle breeders.
Anit no denigrateing puggle breeder. Puggle isnt anything more than a mixed breed with a fancy name to scam people out of money. Sad when you have to deal with people who think pugs came from puggles. Yep, pugs, a 2000 yr old breed, came from a designer dog thats not been around more than 5-7yrs. denigrate yuppies and their 'need' for having 'breeds' for their mixed breed dogs.
My post is not nesba or Garth relatedA big +1. I don't have much (if any) respect for a trackday guy waiting for his laptimes to reach a competitive level before sacking-up in amatuer....at that point, even the best amatuer finishes are not going to be impressive to me. Like K3 said, these multi season trackday guys put in hella more laps than a racer, so they should be faster than the normal amatuer.

I would have never started racing had I not started with track days, racing was never my intention. It has been said before and I'll say again, that it might be wise to cultivate more racers, and welcome track day riders into racing to help keep the sport going.
Personally I found more enjoyment testing my abilities with peers of equal experience (real AM's with minimal laps), then sandbaggin at TD's for 2-4 years to make sure I can finish in the top 3. I dunno, just seemed more... pure. Maybe thats my underlying issue. Everyone has their own motivation.
that are really the "sole" of racing
I'm thinking about racing next year and have been following this thread and I have a few questions regarding this post. 1. If I'm a former trackday rider and I choose to race then I'm not "worthy" of any credit for my accomplishments? 2. If I choose to work on my skills before racing in order to be a safer and more competitive rider I lose respect from my fellow racers/riders? and the final question3. Who would YOU rather throw your bike into turn 1 with.... someone who knows there way around the track or someone who decided they wanted to race and has never set foot on a track other than the licensing school?
I mean seriously, come on, practice before you go racing?? Measure and hone your skills at a racetrack before trying to be competitive on a race track? That takes all the fun out of it for us guys that just want to go out there with no practice and win races... , it just aint fair....
