Star At CVR

Well guys, this past weekend I was at Chuckawalla valley speedway (CVR) with Jason Pridmore and his crew. It was amazing, I walked away the first day thinking the $550 was money well spent and that the next day was just a bonus. We covered everything from lines, body positioning, Braking, and my favorite was RPM management.

Attend this school if funds are available. I know they go to the east coast for the summer. Weather your a track beginner like me or your a race veteran I think you'll defenatly walk away with some new knowledge that will help you improve your track times.

Yes, I did the two up ride with JP it was crazy. I wasn't amazed by the speed like most other people I was really blown away by how deep he trail brakes. I've never thought of holding on to the brakes that long during lean but will start to little by little. I was also impressed on how smooth he was with his up shifts and downshifts I never felt the bike chatter once.

If your in the military they offer some free days so check the schedule and sign up.

As a current one time track day novice, would I benefit more using the money to use STAR once or get 3-6 track days on my own?

I always hear that paying for professional coaching is worth it , but Iíve never done it. Wife wonít let me spend $1500, also thatís a lot of money.

You'll learn a lot more in a weekend taking a school than you'll ever learn riding on your own for 10 track days. I am sure they have changed the curriculum since I've attended but hopefully they still have a beginner and an advanced course. If its in your budget take this course or the Yamaha Champions School.

save a little every few years or just ask for cash when the holidays come around.

Yeah. Seems easiest to just sign up for and do a military enlistment and hope to get one of their free sessions.
