    Default Thinking about Doing MSRH Saturday with Whoopies Track Day

    Well, I'm so sad about the end of the LSTD/CMRA season, I'm actually thinking about hitting MSRH for a Whoopie's Track Day this Saturday. It's essentially like the old LMS trackdays, except Whoop isn't such a hard***.

    You don't have to be a racer, just have the ability to hold you line and do a 2:06 or better around MSRH. Let me know if anyone is thinking about going.

    I have not done it with Allan (Whoopie), but I used to run with Buck when he had LMS, 30 minute sessions every hour was what made it good for me - I think he keeps his grids small too.

    Allan is a good gut (very fast, too). Schedule is now looking doubtful. Probably just go shoot guns or something.

    I'm going to be there late morning. I'm shooting for 11am, so warm that track up for me!

    Kent, forget about the guns and fire up that big CBR!

    Nice day out there with perfect weather, and great to see Oskar out there!

    Now I guess it's time to start wrenching the bikes for next year (that's right Tom, you can expect a call soon )

    Might still try to sneak out to GSS on 12/4 for a little mid-winter action.

    Great day - and great having such small grid. I ended up running 7 out of 8 sessions (skipping early morning session because it was too cold) for almost 3.5 hours of track time. This was first time to this track with the new suspension, so I had little more confidence.

    I did turn my best time ever in the second morning session at that track, and felt like I was improving through the day, but the lap timer quit working. Oh well, maybe next time.

    Good seeing Dave out there, and good meeting some of the others.

    I was trying to get out there. However, returning from Iraq on Dec 8th and then getting married on the 17th, I can't seem to convince my fiance to make it a "bonding" trip :-)
