Pics & Vid from Last Track Day

Hey guys. Headed to the track yesterday. First time running in red (group a) and boy was it a blast. Got to ride with some ASBK riders and some other amateur racers and ex racers, and just all round monsters. The speed some of these guys have is incredible, and it's amazing to try and chase for a couple corners and pick up some tips.
Managed to knock 2 seconds off my previous PB due to less traffic and some line adjustments, but that's still 8 seconds off the faster guys, and 12 seconds off the fastest O_O


Green (group b) from last day for comparison of the skill jump.

I'd prefer to be running 40's and 41's (chasing a 38), and been going over the footage and realised I fucked up and for some reason was running turns 4 and 5 in second instead of third. And turns 9-11 in third and second instead of fourth and third. I noticed comparing footage that the engine braking and lack of drive that was giving me could've been costing me 1-2 seconds a lap. So need to sort that out for next booking.

For the most part I'd stay green until a comfortable 40, but the groups seem to be getting slower, there's now people in green running 2:12's and not being moved. Dunno if this is just bad luck on the days I've been, or if they're not paying much attention to shifting people anymore. Few mates in red told me to move up to get some more space to work on pace and pick up tips from the faster guys.
Was a sobering experience getting my ass handed to me.
