Two Days At Barber


Recommended Posts

Yes, I am headed to Barber a little later in the day for two days of well deserved track time with my NESBA brothers and sisters. The weather maybe a little warm but I am expecting good things from my Dunlop tires and a hot track..I need to set a personal best this weekend! I will need a 1:40 or better to place in the Senior Superbike class at the WERA Nationals in September. GET R DONE!

Good luck with it mate, make sure you keep it shiny side up though eh?

 

Let us know how you get on with experimenting with tyre pressures.

Thanks Man! I am going to stick with Dunlops. I know how they work and what tire pressures to use...If I go down on these there will be no crying.

Are you on a 600 or 1000?

I DID IT! The second session of the first day...1:40.93, 1:40.88, missed a lap 1:41.23, 1:40.77 then a 1:40.26. It was very hot, about 98 ambient. I had to take a couple of cold showers between sessions to cool down. I started slowing down a bit after lunch and couldn't break the 1:41 mark. I had a plan for Sunday to come out the first session and get loose, find a couple of 1:35-1:39 riders and hitch a tow. I was on my way when the rider in front of me through up a hand with mechanical problems and put me off the pace...I finished with a 1:40.22. I started making mistakes in the third session after lunch with a couple of missed shifts. The tires were starting to feel a little greasy with the heat of the track so I called it a weekend. There is just so many Bananas, potassium, gatorade and water one can drink and when you're done you're done. This was a goal so now on to the 1:39's at Barber.

THe 600 is still in intensive care. I road the 1000 with the Dunlop slicks.

HURRAY! Nice job! OMG, 98 degrees. I'm so glad you're doing so well. Pretty impressive to come back off a crash and kick butt like that, awesome. Thanks for letting us know how it went!
