lukem Posted August 2, 2010 Report Share Posted August 2, 2010 Hi all, First post here so a small bit of background - Currently racing 600s at club level in New Zealand since last year having been doing trackdays in UK and Aus for the past 4 years. I have completed levels 1+2 at the school and have 3+4 booked at the new NZ school in a few months time. In my racing, I have recently jumped up from the novice class to the main supersport class. My laptimes have remained pretty much the same, only now I have gone from the front of the field to the back! This is a great learning curve but I have found that running in the faster class, I find myself starting to charge turns as I get sucked into corners quicker than before following faster riders and end up late getting back on the gas. Problem is, for the riders in front, they aren't charging - just carrying higher corner speed which is ultimately what I want to be doing. I guess the question is how do you up the pace, yet not fire off all your SR's in doing so!? I record video of my racing and watching them back, it is easy to point to certain corners and say, "should get on the gas early here" or "coasting too much here" etc. but when I get back on the bike it is much harder to do. I can slow the pace down and then things click into place, but when I start to pick it up again, I end up back to square one. Any advice would be much appreciated or is it just a case of patience and practice and taking small steps at a time? Thanks Luke Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
