I'll get things started
I started racing with the AFM part way through 2014, only doing the girl's-only (AFemme) class my first few weekends because I was so slow. The last weekend of 2014 I did a couple Sunday races, and 2015 was my first full season. That year, I started out as the clear back marker in most of my classes, and by the end of the year was at the back end of the mid-pack novices.
2016 I started investing a lot more in myself, along with getting some great support from people along the way, especially Ken Hill who helped transform my riding. I started the year right where I had left off the year before, with no improvements at our first round (which was very disappointing to me at the time). That prompted making some changes to my mentality, and things changed rapidly through the year. I went from leading the back pack in my races to being consistent top 5 in one of the fastest novice groups the AFM has seen, and in my Legacy class I was regularly on the podium including my first win of my racing career. I finished up 3rd in that championship, and dropped an average of 5 seconds a lap off previous lap times at all 3 tracks we race.
That blew my goals for that bike (prod legal 07 675) out of the water, so in Dec 2016 I picked up the bike I've wanted to race all along, a 2017 ZX10R which I'm currently building.
For the 2017 season (once I'm over the broken leg) I'm moving up to Expert and on the bigger bike. Should be an interesting learning curve! Thankfully have some great people in my court, so hoping to do their support justice and continue growing as a rider. Faster and safer!
This year I plan to race in Open Production, Open GP, Open Superbike, AFemme, and assuming I qualify, Formula Pacific.
I'm really hoping I can gain some confidence in my bike with the new one - that Daytona taught me a lot about how to ride a motorcycle, and I got a lot more confident in my skills, but I never did get confident in the bike - there was just always something about trying to ride that bike hard that did not inspire confidence for me.
Eventually (once I qualify for the license) my goal is to be ready to wild card the local MotoAmerica rounds - and if that goes well, and finances allow, I may shoot for doing the full season down the road - but there's a LOT of work for me between now and then, so taking it one step at a time with my eyes on that eventual goal.
