Willow Springs MTC Track Day report 7/25/06

Well that was my first crack day with the 10...could have been worse..
up at 6.30, my buddy ('06 R 1)shows up 1 hr late...loading the bikes, hitting north...and I almost dumped the 10 on the 5 fwy(not tight enough and 1 strap bailed out...).we finally arrive at [email protected], missing all (the relatively cool)morning sessions.
That desert heat was a killer: 110 in the pits area around 2 pm and someone had a infared temp reader, the ground outside the hartman garage was 139 f.
I did only 2 sessions, probably 12 laps total and on the 2nd one was a couple of mn from a heat stroke (new leathers don't help..).
Track was in poor condition: due to last week/end heavy rains, dust remaining in turns 2,5 and 9....
Bike was running good, running Supercorsas SC1 front and rear and pulling 16x40.
Overall, smoothly run by MTC, thanks for the water and Gatorade on da house
I'll post some pix manana.
Next day @the track: Fontucky this sat. 29th

Felix, glad to hear it wasn't too bad. The way you described it, I'm starting to think that working today wasn't that bad Man, you arrived at the track just before lunch heh? I would've been burning up too, did anybody crash...hope not. Are you doing the Fasttrack day @ Fontana? If so, looks like a fun course, it's just a grip of cash for a trackday & no included lunch or drinks ($259)

Yep. Fontana at $ 259.00 a pop....BUT the track is awesome, it's the shortest drive for me (50 mi.), you get free garages and power, don't have to struggle with the focking canopy flying away like @Willow.
I'll be there saturday (early for a f.... change) and I'll pit with Katoom

Glad to hear that you are having fun this summer, Felix! Fontana will be cooler. Good idea to pit with Katoom- he knows the track and is fast!
