I don't recall any of the finishers listed coming on here and boasting about how fast they are. I also think you are jumping to a SERIOUS conclusion when you assume all those people listed in the first page have been riding trackdays for "years"
I think that this statement is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard. When I started riding on the track..my form was horrible...I knew nothing about race lines and was lost and honestly was a danger to those around me because of my lack of knowledge. Through coaching I was able to learn the proper race line, how to properly get off my bike and how to actually ride the track. Not with that said...I probably could have dropped laptimes much quicker while racing...but for me, eventually I would have hit a wall because there were so many other things that would have been wrong with my riding. I may have improved more slowly doing trackdays but my improvement while riding trackdays has been in the areas where I will truly recognize faster times when the time comes to race...and what I have learned will keep me safer when racing.
I didn't ask if you would be comfortable....I asked "Who would you RATHER...."
Come on Speedy, it's OK, you can out yourself...Hi, My name is Speedballer and i'm a...
Wow. Let me slow things down for you. I assumed nothing. The conversation is about people doing track days for years, and then showing up to race. I know nothing about the people on the first page, and have never assumed that I did. If you look at my first post, you'll see that I address that fact right off the bat.
The simple fact is this....Some people do many trackdays before they decide to race, and some decide to get out and learn as they race. Who here should be able to judge one way better than the other?
and before certain people jump on here and CLAIM they haven't made judgements....please reread your posts WITH AN OPEN MIND.
I will give your deserved dove-clap when you are picking up your amatuer trophies at the end of the event
Really..... So what kind of clap do i get for the results at MAM, HPT, and Gateway? I never turned a lap on those tracks before i was there to race....
lets see... 1. Michael Jordan spent all that time shooting jump shots before he competed??? He never once played in a match until the NBA? I dont believe he waited until he had the skills of an allstar before competing. 2. Tiger woods. Are you really trying to throw in a golfer?? LOL. You think he waited until he was one of the top 3 golfers before he competed?3. Dale Earnhardt... yeah he didnt race anything at all before going to nascar... He waited until he knew he could run in the top 3 and THEN he went and raced.4. Frank Sinatra. He didnt wait until he was the best singer to start recording. someone saw talent and had him record.and really I would have used more "grass roots" examples... as the top 3 obsiously had SOME experience in competition before they landed in the NBA/PGA/Nascar. Yes Red... people practice. and yes they practice before they compete. to hold out until you are sure you can win... as speedy said, its about intent.I asked the question earlier... I'll ask again. Are you going to bump to expert this year? Or are you shooting for AM championships?and finally why are you so intent on impressing me??? really, I'm not that important.
