Track Day!!!!

I'm lining up to do my first track day on the MV. This will be at Willow Springs - the BIG track. The outfit that's running this is MTC (http://www.mtctrackday.com/home.shtml).

I've done a track day with these guys before. It was pretty good. You get LOTS of laps. My complaint last time what that they didn't allow passing on the inside in the fast group. That seems like an OK idea on paper, but at the Streets of Willow (the small track), it's really hard to pass other than at two places: out of the NASCAR bowl, and down the front straight.

Anyway, my understanding is that they now allow inside passing in the fast group. That should make things flow pretty good at the BIG track, where passing is possible in a lot of places (turn 8, turn 2, front straight, between 2 & 3).

I have not signed up for this event, and it is a mid-week deal (Wed.) so that means a day off of work. But I'd really like to see another MV rider out there.

would love to show up.....can someone have my F4 shipped out, cover my travel and set me up? Better add an umbrella girl tot he list, I might need... shade!

I had my Tuono on the track last weekend. Nice, but not a stellar trackday weapon. I'm looking forward to a day on a full course with the F4 in a couple of months.

Let us know how the day goes, and post some pics if you get them!

I'll try to take some photos. Or buy some if there's a "pro" taking shots.

Unfortunately, it never works out very well. I'll probably be going solo, so I don't have anyone who can take photo while I'm out doing laps. And then there is the camera part. My Canon PowerShot G2 is an OK camera, but for good shots at the track you need 300mm or more on the lens. And that usually means an SLR, which I don't have.

I'll do what I can.

Alex, I can't get the link to work. When is it? Probably too soon for me as I am still recovering from a recent lowside, but I would love to get the MV out on the track sometime soon. Have fun and be safe.
