tweek Posted July 26, 2008 Report Share Posted July 26, 2008 Broke elbow no track Physical therapy sucks Lines are on my mind During one of the level 4 class room sessions with Mr. Code the topic of the lines I was chasing came up. He seemed a bit peeved that I was not making use of the tape markers he and his crew had laid out on the track. He asked something along the lines of “Do you think we don’t know where to put them?” Clearly that is not the case. I think I don’t understand clearly why they are there. Having read TOW2 many many times and watched plenty of racing it is pretty clear that there are several ‘good’ lines through any track. If there was only one line then there wouldn’t be much passing in turns. You wouldn’t see Bayliss going around the outside of Troy Courser. Or the dog fight between Stoner and Rossi at Laguna. They’d be tucked in single file going through the turns and trying to drag race down the straights. So why are those markers there? It isn’t just for the n00bs obviously. If that were the case Mr. Code wouldn’t have asked the question and responded to me in the fashion he did. So what gives? Is there really only one good line or is there something else going on? Sorry for the Haiku. Been a month sense my last track day and I’m just now ready for another. But I’m still waiting until late August before I go back. Better safe than sorry. See if I can start up another insane thread. I asked one stupid question while trying to figure out how to get my knee down and it goes to 9 pages. Insane I tell you.
