Fast Track Cali Speedway 1-3-09

Anyone running fast track riders Saturday 1-3 before the WERA event ? Level 2 just opened up for anyone NON racer to get on the track.

Hey Did anyone end up going to this?
The last "mixed" Fastrack/wera event at ACS that I went to in the summer of 2008 ended up with a horrific crash in turn 2/3/4 with 2 bikes going up in flames and 1/both riders hellevac lifted from the track...fast track kept us informed and both riders are still recovering. All in all with mixed WERA events it tends to be a nightmare for non-racers and usially means lots of WERA idiots crashing into each other making for little track time for the non-racers.

I dont think I would ever do a mixed event again given my past experiences with mixed track days. In my opinion racers should stick with racers and novice should stay at track days.

That being said, I'd like to know how it was from anyone who went. I nearly did go but just couldnt do it considering what I've seen before...namely staying in the garage nearly all day wiating for track crew to clean up a bunch of stupid WERA "racers" who had more balls than skills.

It ran pretty smoothly compared to 2008...we did had a few red flags but

nothing major (on saturday 1/3rd with Fastrack)..

I would say MAINLY because they separated track day riders from racers.

They had 3 groups: Racer A ( 750cc and liter bikes), Racer B (mostly

600's) and level 2/intermediate.

Thanks for the update, I'm aware just now of the unfortunate death of a racer during the actual WERA event and wanted to just clear up my previous post.

After re-reading my post I realized it sounded potentially offensive to WERA and other WERA racers. I apologize to both parties and would like to clarify that my comments.

I clearly understand the competitive nature of WERA and its racing class members and understand that accidents,crashes and even death can occur at these high levels of competition my disparaging remarks were intended more towards Fasttrack for "mixing" racers with track day enthusiasts (in 2008) and that this mixture was extremely dangerous.

I'm glad to hear that the fasttrack event on 1/3/09 was uneventful and that most everyone got their track time in without incident. Again I am also very sorry to hear of the unfortunate accident that followed shortly during the sanctioned WERA event.

thanks again,
