Day Of Schedule?


Recommended Posts

When does first bell ring? I don't want to be late and have to get a tardy slip.

 

I'm getting ready to head to Ohio tomorrow and would like to know what time I need to be at the track Monday morning.

 

I'm planning on being there by 7:00am

Tweek;

7:00am was fine at every School I have attended as either a Student or a Corner Worker.

I always rolled out my sleeping bag under my bike blocking the front gate at Mid Ohio so Keith would have to wake me up to get in.

 

That way I could never be late.

 

 

No, really!

hmmm- that is an idea. I could just sleep in my gear so I'm ready to go as soon as they roll up. But I don't want to seem too eager.

 

I'm going to have to take my ADD medication because I'm driving people nuts I'm so excited. We fly out tomorrow. Watch the AMA on Sunday. And then I get to go learn for two days.

 

You'd have to be dead to not be excited.

I envy you.

 

Mid Ohio is the first road race course I ever saw and I spent many days of my younger years attending the AMA National there and staying on through to attend the Keith Code school. The traditional weekend falls on my birthday which was yesterday. (For awhile they moved the AMA weekend to mid-July and got rained on every single year and finally got smart and moved it back ... lol.)

 

Anyway, some of my best memories are there. I saw Wayne Rainey, Fred Merkel, Jimi Filice and Bubba Shobert race Superbikes head to head that first weekend in 1987. I was traveling two up on my GPz750 and camping under the stars with my best friend who has since passed. I saw Randy Renfrow skipping the rear wheel of his 250 in the dirt as he slid sideways on to the front straight kicking up little puffs of dirt on each lap and I was instantly hooked and knew I had to go racing. I can still smell the castor oil and race gas wafting from the 250's that day.

 

I also really envy you for getting to ride on the NEW PAVEMENT WITHOUT POLYURETHANE APEX PATCHES. That was my dream for many years. Oh well, maybe I'll be able to make it over on Monday or Tuesday to say "Hi".

 

Have fun, dude. Mid Ohio is a fun fun fun track. It's like racing on a golf course. Just beautiful.

I've got to agree with Racer - Mid-Ohio rocks! Two years ago I did the same thing you're doing - going to the races over the weekend and then spending two days at the Superbike School. Probably four of the best days of my adult life in a long, long time - and I rode there the year before the concrete inlays were paved over.

 

I have ridden at Mid-Ohio, VIR, Mosport, Laguna Seca, the Streets of Willow Springs, Loudon, Pocono, Beaver Run, Nelson Ledges, Shannonville and Watkins Glen and Mid-O is still my favorite track.

 

Have fun!
