ARC class with Ty following

He was waiting for me so I get to say I passed Ty Howard. He did say aw some pass. It is less than a lap before he went and played.

How about that Turn 1 over shoot by the other guy :)

All that speed an all that weight made for a loooooong stopping effort.

I put up with that all weekend. Ty said after that session he had no idea where that idiot thought he was going. That is a tight corner from where he was. The corner falls away at the top also. The ones that did not blow the tight corners would do all there stopping while up and down and then park. Without having speedo but watching Steves' video I carry 5 to 10 MPH on some bikes thru 1, 11,12, 14, 15 and more in other areas. Was all fun still but not a good series of laps.

The RZ does stop well and Ty's last instructor said I had some serious braking ability. Especially when no one is in front and I could trail brake and stay on a good line.

Looking at that turn 1 incident again, you did an awesome job to stay focused and not fixate on the diesel and follow him into oblivion.

Just held station and peeled off at your turn-in and off you went :)
