Here is the 11:20 session from today's 6/16/17 Thunderhill East track day with Fun Track Dayz. Times vary between 2:10 and 2:23. It was hot. I need new tires. And sleep.



Also, testing cruise control. Next time will go for knee down >:D

cruise control on the track. A very BMW-like rider behavior lol. Lucky no coaches saw you, you would have gotten a warning for that. Or at least with some of the org I ride with.

TH is awesome!

Yesterday was much less crowded than today. 2nd session B+ got red flagged. Big crash that somehow snapped the front wheel off the forks and dumped oil all over 10. :frown2: Yesterday I had no issues with sweat inside the helmet. Today, it was like there was a water faucet on my forehead. :rolleyes:. Need a bandana/ skull cap or something to keep sweat out of my eyes on these scorchers. :surprise:

I like your idea of wet / frozen neck roll, that plus a cap should keep me going all day on these hot days! Wonder what could have caused the wheel to snap off!?

Here's some snippets of traffic from the full session for those with adhd symptoms

Skull cap is a must, be sure to eat salty foods, and pee before going on the track each session so you don't sweat as much :wink2:
