Racing School Europe- Catalunya Circuit

In case anyone is interested, here is a link to the article I wrote in Motorcyclist on my experience riding with Racing School Europe and Troy Corser in Spain last October . Such a fun group of people and amazing tracks, if anyone is interested, check it out

MOTM - Jun '16
Mild curiosity -- I saw it said "great for practicing trail braking and quick turning"... I usually find that the places I need to do notable trail are less amenable to quick turning and vice-versa (more of a 'you don't need the advantages of trail as much')... Obviously that doesn't mean it's one or the other, they can and should be mixed to the degree/balance appropriate, but I thought I'd ask!

Yes, absolutely. For a single corner, usually if you are trail braking then you are steering it less quickly then if you are not trailing, however in that series of corners, from 1-2 at THAT circuit, you trail the brakes into the apex for one and then have to come off the brakes and quickly steer it for the transition into turn 2. It was the combination of turn 1-2 that I was meaning in that sentence
