Last trackday of the year

Well, I have another race and school in October, but the last track day of 2020 has come and gone. I decided to take my Ninjette out to the Ridge one last time and see what I can do.
This wasn't the best session, but I forgot to turn the camera on for all the others because I'm dumb since I haven't been filming my riding the last few years.
Generally I was running ~2:07 all day, which seems to be a bit of a new wall to overcome. Podium for this configuration with WMRRA is in the 2:01-2:02 territory, so I'm about 5 seconds off pace.

One of my top 3 in the US, absolutely love it. The chicane layout is better than this one, but it's a trip. Technical but also relatively quick.

Nice!

A few reminders

WOT (sooner)
Turning in a bit too early in 11
Could be more accurate with apexes and using more track on exit
Possibly turning too early into carousel

Otherwise looking good! Would like to see a following from behind camera view...actually dammit, I wish I was coaching!!

Anyway, good job- have fun at race school....i was supposed to be there too.

Thank Misti, great feedback as always.

I think the WOT and Apex Accuracy got dialed in throughout the day (this was the first session, then I completely forgot to record anything else). Being lured into an early 11 TP is definitely something I struggle with, I'm still not happy with my RPs and get sucked into the apex too soon. Carousel is a bit of a tricky one to figure out on the 250 and I'm still trying to figure out which 'style' I like most (early turn in with a lot of speed scrub, a later turn in that gets a more double-apex like line and uses more track, etc.)

I'll miss you at CodeRACE for sure
