Well this will be my start event for 2008? Anyone else? Shooting for Level 2, and aiming for Level 3 by the summer.
Anyone else going Saturday?
Here are a couple of albums from Fontana 2007 to pump you up.

Good Show, my 2 cents, if your funds allow, get into the Novice School. It will get you extra track time, and some great assistance on how to handle your bike better, as well as getting around Cal Speedway.
See you out there, look for the debadged 07 R1.
Oh by the way, its free to watch, no parking costs as well.

.... Heart rate already going up. Caught some of the WERA racing last Sunday, I did not know that they had an "Old Mans Class"! I am sooo in. Let you young bucks go out and rub elbows making a name for yourselves, whilst I roll out with the geritol crew. Where do I sign up and get all legit like? Hopefully by the time the Aug event rolls around, I will be all set to get some. Mean time, I am gonna put in as many Track Days at Fontana as I can.
Anyone else going on the 2nd since the last event rained out? If you see me shout out, I will be garaged with my neighbor and his 08 R6, co worker and his 06 gsxer 1000.

What's up Ray, I'm going Sun level 2. I figured I would have the track all to myself since everyone will be watching the game.

Hey Kenny,
Were you at the WERA races? Thought I saw your Motorhome? Yeah Sunday will most likely be nice and wide open.
Have fun and catch next trip, I will be shooting for March 29th, and trying to bounce on up to L3. (wishful hopes huh)

No I didn't make it out for WERA. As much as you've been hitting the track I think you'll be doing low 1.40's pretty soon, it might take me a little longer.

Slowly but surely, I hope. Now that I laid down the bike, I don't feel so worried about the condition no more.
