UPDATE: Added some pics!
Good morning race fans!
They taught us:
- How to do a tech inspection
- Exercises we can practice to improve slow-speed skills
- Cornering techniques
- All about tires
- Emergency maneuvers
- How nightmarishly hot Thunderhill can get
- Group riding
And, as a special treat, they took us newbies out on the track for a follow-the-leader session where we were given the opportunity to ride race lines. That’s when I was able to put my 45mph top speed to some really good use. But that’s not the end of it, or rather — that’s not the beginning!
First, I had to actually get to Thunderhill. And how, pray tell, did I do that?
