I'd be happy to show you around The Ridge, but there are lots of guys with better/faster lines than me.

here's the video from the california superbike school, day 2 for me. This was my FIRST lap right after lunch so I made some mistakes I didn't always make (missing the turn in point in turn 2).

The yellow x on the ground are the suggested turn in points. they are very, very good points. The only change that my instructor and I made is through 8a and 8b...it's not a double apex, push the turn in point a yard or 2 further and it can be done in one full arc, you can see my line in the video, I do this and end up running right over the 2nd turn in X anyways.

also, i'm slow, yes, I was working on throttle control and cornering, not brakes and straight line speed. That being said, the funny angle of the camera makes everything look slower than it seems.

anyways, I highly suggest you study the markers in this video, it'll help TONS on your next track day



approximate map of turn in points and apex points on the harder part of the track line wise. video is better though



oh, one more thing, make reference points on this track! helps tons!

turn 9 into turn 10

What an amazing track. It is so smooth. It strings together beautifully. 170 on the straight is a nice touch too!

It's developing some rough patches though. Right as you enter the Ridge Complex, there are some "rumble strips" near the top (outside line). And I've found a small "pothole" in turn 14 (also in the Ridge Complex). I started turning inside that one.

While it is pretty damn good now, I can't wait for the final "top layer" to go down. It should be really awesome then.
