it was fricking awesome.
it startd pouring at 0630 but by 830 itr had stopped, there were 2 advanced guys so they didnt do much as far as drying out the track.
the intermediate grp was full, they went out and dried it up pretty good. its stayed overcast almost all morning. the beginner grp was full too, i babied it, i was scared, damp track, and supercorsas plus 1000cc dont mix AT ALL.
so i just went out there and got a feel for the track.
cats were crashing left and right, just pushing too soon, man, lots of lowsides exiting turn 1, a few over shot it, a lot of em ran of at turn 7
no one crashed at 11 or 11a, but the oaktree stayed damp pretty much until in the afternoon after lunch.
turn one is a mofo, that thing scared me everytime i cam ove the crest of the hill, but by noon i had it, and i had figured out how to late apex it so i didnt run wide to the rumble strip.
the oaktree didnt stop bothering me until it was completely died out.
the last 2 sessions i ran some really good times, i was stuck on a best of 1:23.00 but i started folowing a CR that was working with a guy on a gixxer 1000 that was pretty fast and i got a few more tircks on the race lines, and by the time that session ended i ran a 1.20.75.
the last session there was this CR that was just circulationg not really working with anyone just flying around the track, i saw him way up ahead and decided to close on him, i think he had a 750, not sure tho, could be a a 6.
anyway i stayed on him, he was passing in corners as he could, but i coulnt, so i had to be setting mofos up like crazy, i kept at it the entire session and by the time i caught up to him it was the last lap, and i stayed with him, until he took a few guys going into turn 4 so i had to chill till after 6, and when i came in, i had a 1.19.98 felt pretty good man, the CR and a few I guys said that was intermediate pace and i should have tried to get the bump, but i dont feel im ready yet, i was still working on my position and late braking more, as i trail braked going into 1 every lap, but i still feel i can brake later, especially since with those SBK lines i put on friday and my ole trusty vesrah RJL pads.
all in all it was a great day, VIR south is a very good track, no pics yet, wehn i went ot buy the CD the guys had shut down for the day, and im not sure if im gonna buy it because last i saw he only had 28 pics of me, im not spending the money for 28 damn pics, altho some looked real good and my form is getting a lot better. hell im dragging toes now, i dragged toes on T1 and T6. i did have a camcorder mounted the 1st and 2nd session, but it kept shutting off after about 2 mins, i guess from the vibration. and on the last session we ask our neighbor to record us as he sat it out. so once i get those clips sorted out, ill share em.
Buy my Pirelli supercorsa takeoffs. sizes 120/180
...I'm slowly prepping the FZ...Goin to VIR with NESBA most likely next year since they are reasonably priced
