I will be heading down Friday evening to set up.

Anyone else?


I'm there on Sunday in an official capacity, hopefully in the one shaded spot.

As long as they take partial credit I would. With the low availability of a makeup day at Cresson, that may be more of the norm anyway. The surface is going, so the sooner the better.

Re: COTA May 25-26

I guess that number of people would be equivalent to 30 on the 1.7 at Cresson if people were spread out evenly. Matt, do you know how many they usually book for Cresson? But if Cresson is any indication people are not going to stay spread out evenly, and it is a long way to get to the pits to pull ...

Re: COTA May 25-26

It went well, another successful day. Let’s see: there was a full on Harley bagger and 54 other sorts of sport bikes, so that was new, kind of like a Grom in level 2. 55 riders in level one. So sit and bake to be up front or lose 15% of each session as 60 rides and staff start in front of you, the c...

At an AirBnB 2 miles from the track. It’s hot, it’s humid, it sucks. But at least it’s dry out

That Grom blew his motor right in front of me between 2 and the hairpin. I paced him at 70 on the front before turn one right before that

Re: Makeup Makeup day MSRC 1.3 Monday April 29 2019

How did it go? It went well. 50 drops of rain total. It was low 80’s and plenty of humidity, but not bad at all. Good grip. Couple of minor falls in 2, one in level 1. Turn out was really light I thought for a sell out. There were maybe 20 in level 1.5. Shane and Justin were there and a good time w...

COTA May 25-26

Just in case it’s filling fast now. Normally we can’t use credits to Cota, but since that March date had no makeup we can. I am signed up for level 1 Sunday.

Re: YCRS at MSR Cresson April 16&17

I got a nice email from the COO. They were not able to secure enough riders to make this event. Huh. I wouldn't have even known it was available except purely by chance. I guess they should advertise better if they want to grow. How did you hear about it? He mentioned what he really needed was more...

Thanks for posting. Seems like Champagne money for a hotdog track, but maybe it's for aspiring CMRA racers. Of course I emailed them about a flag job. Again thanks

Re: 3:16 track day 3-18-19 Cresson 1.7

There were considerably more number plates than at a RS event. And at any time past the 20min point the field could be down a third to two thirds. With 4 groups at COTA you get the hour between sessions and it makes for a nicer track experience.

3:16 track day 3-18-19 Cresson 1.7

So I corner worked for 3:16 yesterday as a fill in. It's a little different. There are 2 groups. Passing is allowed anywhere and on either side in both groups. Each groups first session is 30min. After that it's one hour sessions per group. There are less riders as I saw about 26 in the slower and a...

Re: MSRC Sun Mar 3(1.3)/Mon Mar 4(1.7)

Not surprisingly, both days are cancelled. As no makeup day can be secured, credits for another event are available.

Man these cancelled days are getting old. And no makeup either.

Re: RS 2019 Schedule

MSR in Houston was just licensing the MSR name, no other affiliation as far as I knew. Now that they are up and running and a decent customer base they probably decided to drop the MSR name and stop paying for the license. Regarding weekend trackdays at Cresson, everyone got spoiled basically. In t...
