Taking Sbs At Mmp, Which Level To Take?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm planning on taking Keith's school at MMP this June, in signing up there are 4 level of options with an extra CODERACE option? My intentions in taking the school is, obviously to go faster, but with the primary idea of improving in the local club races. Currently i'm in the novice race group at the bottom of midpack, I've ridden on the track about 4 or 5 times now and I feel fairly familiar with it, which level or option should I choose?

 

Also,

What configuration will SBS be running at MMP on the 20th and 21st? The whole track (perimiter or full track)? The East or West?

 

 

Here is the track configurations for those who havent seen them before and might be going.

Saruji,

The four levels of the Superbike School are like secondary school - they are progressive and must be taken in sequence; if you haven't attended yet, everyone starts at Level I. No matter how well you ride, you cannot skip grades.

 

CodeRACE is a stand alone school but if you are just beginning club racing and have only been to 4 or 5 track days, I would recommend getting more track/school/race experience before you take that plunge. I have taken all four levels of the School and attended CodeRACE and I can say with some confidence that you want to be "ready" for CodeRACE before you go there; 5 track days wouldn't seem to be enough experience - IMHO.

Well I've had 4-5 track days at MMP, but I've been doing track days for the last year or so, with a good 15-20 or so track days. I've also taken the local ridding school a few times. So I guess the only option is CodeRACE or Level 1 am I correct in this?

 

What can I expect with CodeRACE, am I just in over my head along with AMA racers or maybe its more of what i'm looking for. What will I be getting into, do you still think its a bad idea? Am I just too eager to go faster? :unsure:

It all depends...if you want to go faster, I can tell you CodeRACE is very fast. When I attended in 2004, Roger Lee Hayden was there with his crew chief and his factory Zx-6RR. If you can ride with Roger Lee, then CodeRACE would be perfect for you.

 

IMHO, If you want to learn how to go fast, then I would recommend you go to the School. There are many things you need to learn how to do correctly to be fast and consistent and there isn't a short cut that I have found. I simply couldn't get there from here so I went to School.

Alright, sounds like decision sealed, i'll do the level 1 school. What about track selection? And are we going to be in the classroom half of the day and then the other half we ride?

 

 

 

Thanks for answering my questions Kevin, I really appreciate it.

I would start with level 1 as well, actually I did lol. Anyways I just got done with a 2day camp of theirs L1-L2 and now I am doing L3 and L4 individually at Miller same time as you 20th 21st.

 

You learn sooooo much with L1 and L2 its amazing and overwhelming but then you get out there and practice it and it starts to make sense...Good luck and have fun, see you there
