Has any one here had the opportunity to attend the best track school in the nation?

They are pricy, but I will probably get more knowledge than I did in all of the local track day schools here is south Texas.

I haven't attended YCRS, but I did attend quite a few schools put on by one of their coaches, Chris Peris. He used to run his own school at Inde after he stopped racing for Team Iron Horse BMW/Evan Steel Performance in AMA.

I actually preferred his schools since the class size were very small... and his wife made us sammiches :) Learned quite a bit every time I went.

I heard he signed on with YCRS and it looks like it's a year long deal as he has no track classes up on his website and only offers private lessons and track rentals for $1200. This is a little more than 2x what his classes used to cost but I'd gladly pay that for the track/instructor time for myself. Especially on Inde. That is a fun ass track. The facilities there are absolutely amazing as well. Enjoy your time out there! You'll have a blast.

I'm excited for you, what a great learning opportunity!
They have a youtube page with a bunch of intro videos of what you'll be learning

Also, there is fastersafer.com created by Ken and Nick with a bunch of articles and videos on different aspects of riding.

There is another outfit, Rickdiculous Racing, that is run out here in CA, and I am signed up to learn from them on April 2nd

Sweet, thanks animal. I'll get on that as soon as I get home. Maybe I'll work my way into having a season like you had last year in the near future.

Speaking of which...
I'll be having a third day one on one with Chris on the 18th. :) maybe another rider if they have anyone else do it. So far I'm the only one and I'm so excited. Thanks Anthony.
