Track Etiquette- Getting On The Track Properly

Please donít be this dumbfuck when you enter the track from the pits. He moved immediately into the racing line of the front straight where people on the track are going 140+ mph and caused a ZX10 to go off track and bin it. Afterwards he didnít even know he did anything wrong. And this is the advanced A group. Stay over to the side you enter on until the apex of the first turn after the front straight. Then you are on the racing line. Please people, be predictable on the track. Donít cause drama to other innocent riders. Ok 👌🏽

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in

I guess A group doesn't always mean A riders. And me thinks someone skipped the riders meeting, if there was one.

Wow! The rider that crashed has a whole lot of self control! Surprised he didn’t go off on the dude.

I will say that even at the track, you have to look out for the “other guy”, this video is proof positive. Doing some corner work earlier this year, I caught a few riders entering the track without looking before enter the course!

Be diligent and ride safe.

Hopefully another zx6r






I'm somewhat familiar with the guy riding the zx10. Keeping his cool likely came from him being a control rider for that organization plus he is also an older gentleman. If I remember correctly the guy entering the track was taking the racer school to race that weekend .

I know the riders meeting are sometimes repetitive but always pay attention to the rules of entering and exiting the track, it could save someone's life.

Totally unacceptable. Somebody could have died. Needs to be banned from the track. After somebody died it's too late.

This happened with the Ferrari Owners Club of San Diego at Fontana. Guy pulled out in front of Carrera GT and the two guys in the Carrera GT died. Guy swerved to miss him and lost control and hit K rail. Passenger had a Lamborghini and was going for a ride for first time in the Porsche when this happened. Everybody got sued. Penske, FOC and Porsche too.
