    Media center as part of registration. You can buy one outright from Miles at S&C, or he has 'flex' units that are essentially a lease with built in insurance for a bit less. You'll need one eventually so I'd make a point of pricing them out. They tend to go fast when offered up used too BTW.

    Re: When to start LRRS

    do the penguin class now and get your license, but dont race.
    use your license to get Friday practice for the last round at $135.

    then start racing in April after you've thoroughly gone over the bike in the winter.

    No incentive to buy this year, use the free one for the last 2 rounds.

    Someone stop me from doing this (and buying TrackRat's SV to do it with).

    On a more serious note, how much track time do you get on a practice day? Enough time for 5 laps, 50, 500? Assuming you have gas/tires to run, that is.

    When to start LRRS

    Friday practice is a 15 minutes session every hour, starting at 10:00 for racers, 5 sessions iirc. How many laps can you do in 15 minutes?

    I dunno, what's 15 divided by 5?

    Thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, what do they do with the other 45 minutes?

    there is no september round of racing! this weekends racing is the September round. there were event scheduling conflicts when the LRRS schedule was made up and we got 2 Aug rounds and no sept round.

    If half the sessions aren't red flagged, delayed, of scrapped all together. LOL

    True, the novice sessions are a crap shoot. Been a while since I've done one.

    Oddly the last two penguin practices that I have done the red flags came from the AM/EX practice groups and the NV ran every session. Not that I don't agree that the novice sessions are a crap shoot. Holy strange what people call "lines"!

    This is what I wanted to do in July but there must have been some confusion on my part because I didn't think it was possible. Thouht you had to do your rookie race on Saturday then you could do the practice sessions. If Jim's quote is true then that's what I'll be doing in April or May.

    I did Penguin in the last round of the year. did rookie race and novice races in april of the next season. You're allowed 1 year to do your rookie race after completing the Penguin course

    Re: When to start LRRS

    But could you do the Thursday/Friday practice sessions before you did your rookie race?

    I don't know what they hell I'm talking about.

    Based on rumor, myth and legend, for some reason I believe that you fill out all of the license paperwork before hand (i.e. during the basics course), but that your not officially licensed until after you have competed in the rookie race.

    I would imagine you absolutely could but someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Usually this is a non issue because you are participating in the penguin school during the practice session but I don't see why you couldn't sign up for racer practice if you are anticipating on racing.

    Also I just noticed Jim recommended it so...

    Re: When to start LRRS

    Thursday practice - no license needed
    Friday practice - unlicensed and novices are in the same group.

    so whether you've received your license or just waiting to complete it, you're in the same group for friday practice.
    it'll expose you to some of the riders you'll be competing against.

    Re: When to start LRRS

    nope, i stand corrected. thought you didnt need a license, but they may let it slide if you're registered for penguin.

    i'm sure they'd let you ride if you completed penguin, and havent done the rookie race yet. Thursday practice gets like 8 riders all day. so they'll take your money.
