Here's crash video from a few years back. The guy in front (James aka Crash... That's what he goes by now) did his first track day. Matt had the camera and I was just behind him. We raced with CCS for seven years and took James for his first track day.
He had fun Saturday, wrecked on Sunday, and left for Afghanistan on Monday evening already in all kinds of pain.

Long video. The first few laps is me trying to get my tires warm and figure out what kind of pace these guys were running. Very slippery that day. The middle is some lap traffic boring stuff. The last few minutes I passed all of them and stayed in front:)

End of novice group. All these guys (3 guys in front of me at first) got moved to Intermediate. My instructor said I was ready for I group. Told me to try and keep up with these 3 guys, but don't ride over my head.

Here are a few from yesterday at NJMP with Team Pro Motion. I was riding in Red Group. I had some issues in the morning with my quick shifter randomly cutting the ignition which was kinda unsettling...

Knocked 8-9 secs off the lap times in 2 track days and still leaving some time out there. New track scheduled on the calendar next month so I'll have to wait a bit to see if I can improve on the 1:57-1:58's at Buttonwillow.

Track : Buttonwillow Raceway Park - Configuration #13 CW - Let's Ride Track Day Organization

I'm missing riding a ton, with COVID-19 this year I wasn't able to do any coaching with the California Superbike School or track days elsewhere. So, I'm going through old riding videos.

Here's a video of me riding the Ridge in Washington State during lunch hour at one of our California Superbike School events. I'm being followed by another CSS coach James Thooey. I'll post a few more shortly from some other tracks :)
