Chang is the 133rd track we have been to world wide. Very nice circuit.

As for the video, that was that person's 12th lap ever on the track, when they let the coaches go out for a few laps the day prior before doing the school, borrowed bike, unfamiliar tires. And you thought we cherry-picked the best possible lap...we were trying to show people the track itself. I was glad to see that someone got the footage, we were busy setting up.

But I don't have any problem with locals chiming in trying to boost their street credit.

Chang Is a nice track but itís very easy to learn and can get boring compared to some other tracks like Sepang. They also donít have many open trackdays so even being a local rider we donít get much track time other than race weekends.

Have always been interested in doing one of the CSS schools just never had the chance. Thereís always something new to learn and Iím sure they could point out some things that I could try, maybe not making me faster but more comfortable on the bike.


Hopefully they come back to Chang again or maybe even a full track school at Sepang would be good.

Appears you got your riding well sorted out and are only 8 seconds off the MotoGP riders at your home track on an S1000RR. Good job. If you had a MotoGP bike what times do you reckon you could run at your home track? Your claimed personal best lap times are within 3-4 seconds of what the World Superbike riders are doing at Chang, and the same times as the World Supersport Racers.

100% agree - and even the track time pre race is now limited. What 4 x 15 minute sessions last race wasn't it? Just not enough time enough imo.
