I had a great time Friday! Hope to get out there one more time this year.
Nice meeting some new people and seeing some of you I know.
Thanks to OPRT for the great day!

First time riding track, and it was a serious challenge.

I enjoyed meeting Wyckidan.

Good times.

No I just gotta figure out how to go fast before the races next weekend.

Thanks OPRT!!!!
Good meeting you too. Just brake later and twist the throttle more Lots of passing areas, like A LOT of passing areas.

Too bad it's just so far away, I'd love to come watch the races there, although there's really not much to watch compared to Pacific. It would be cool if they put stands on the inside of 5 and outside of 10.

Suppose to be a bridge going in soon, so you can get to the track infield.

It was definitely a good day.

Some thoughts...
T3 and T4 bit more than a few people. It's a section of track that draws you in, making you think you can go faster and faster... then the exit of T4 magically disappears and you have nothing but dirt. Late apexing is the key to MOST of the corners at the Ridge. When you ride it, even if you've ridden it before, take it easy for a few sessions so you can develop a rhythm.

The new paddock area is huge, and had more than enough room for 100 participants.

The track has some concerning spots.. especially when you pick up the pace. What first seemed wide and forgiving is actually narrow, fast and leaves little room for error. It's one of the coolest tracks I've ridden, and like any track, it has characteristics that need to be learned before you'll be winning races. I predict 1:3Xs this coming weekend.

Are there other pictures that will be up somewhere eventually?

More importantly... if my schedule permits, I'd like to volunteer to do some corner working with you guys some time. Who do I talk to?

I just finished cleaning up the bulk pictures. Went from >2000 down to just under 1500. I'll attempt to put them up at www.optimum-performance.org. Just need some time since the day job gets in the way. Again, thanks to everyone for making it happen. Every single person is a volunteer. That combined with an awesome motorcycle community will allow OPRT to continue to offer programs like these track days.

Shoot me a PM and we'll see what days need additional volunteers.

I am a little late, but I thought that I would throw a video up for the heck of it. I cut a best of 1:55.07 somewhere in the day.

The thought of 1:3X's is mind-boggling to me! That's insane!

The track is only .25mi longer than Pacific and its faster than Pacific, so once the race mix is down and Ross gets some time on the track, Ill put the track record inside of 1:30.
