    "blew" r1/r6 at mission

    Who was on the blue r1/r6 that didn't make turn 3? Me and Spyke came up beside you along the straight leading into turn 3 and made the turn. I could see that you blew the turn and continued off the track. Obviously you pulled it off to get the license. Just curious how your nerves are. Nothing like that feeling eh?

    Nice evasion of the trick question.

    way to go! glad to see you avoided fixation. that can sure be a bugger!

    10 points for you

    p.s. should anyone not have a perfectly clear understanding of "fixation' or "tunnel vision", catch the new "Kia" commercial with the attacking shopping cart!

    that was turn 4, the hairpin
    realisticly the 'kink' is a turn, then the slow right sweeper is turn 2, the slight DCR lefthander after that is turn 3, hairpin 4...

    or so kathy explained it to us
    no

    The kink is not considered by most people as turn 1. The vast majority of people subscribe to the corner numbering as set out below...

    Well, turn 2 is the left hand sweeper with the wall and hay bails and turn 6 is the left hander pointed at the wall with hay bails. So that hairpin would have to be turn 3. They must of had it messed up, weren't you listening on the track walk!

    Had to be a student or else I would probably hang up the bike lol. Braking in a straight line on a hairpin turn isn't amateur racer I hope. I could hear the brakes been applied while the tach was still hitting 7 or 8 g's( i.e he forgot to stop applying the gas). We comfortably passed him, so I doubt it was amateur. I'm not here to dis only to find out how the nerves are.
