Nice footage. Have you got a complete lap so I can do my homework (Hoping my April trip goes ahead...)  :grin:

My mate went off at the turn before on the second session of the first day. He stayed on but buckled both wheels and it cost him 500 euros to get the wheels sorted out. He didnt get back out until Saturday PM as a result...  :rofl:

It was a good week though, did a PB but still im yet to crack 1.50 though but not too far away now.

You were going well looking at the timings  :moto:

I did more or less the same thing when I was there last year. Bit more gas through 5 then minor shittage of pants combined with looking at the gravel and went straight on rather than turn right for turn 6. Soon as I was in the curbs I was cursing myself. Stayed on though. Just had to run through the gravel and rejoin at the exit of turn 7!

Not surprised the aprrillia ran off, I dont think they hit a single apex did they?

Random question....but......what speed is accurate? The dash or the overlay?

Yes the camera is with the bike but I've got a 1.45 on camera I think from memory.

Ended up in the top half dozen riders from 162 attendee's behind three superbike/superstock lads in the top 3 spots so dont feel too bad depsite my advacning years lol.

I doubt you'll get too many people much below 1.50 on a trackday fella so thats a good effort !!

So easy to do there ... Must not look at the gravel trap !  Hell I nearly followed him by thinking "where the fuck are you going" and almost rode in after him lol.

The overlay is pretty acurrate although I' although the sync is a bit out I see - all done by the gopro iphone s/w fwiw.  The dash is out due to the non stock gearing etc.

Data logger is coming back with the bike on MOnday so we can see what the optimal laptime would have been over the 3 days ... will spuff over myself if its sub 43 ;-)

Not bad for me as it was the first time back in 12 months, I made the top 40... just by the end of the event so I may have made a mobile chicane for you guys in group 4 if id got to do my time quicker earlier in the week. It is probably the only way I would get sub 1.50 being at the bottom of Group 4 and seeing what you guys are doing rather than now being one of the quickest in group 3 on any event.

Would love to see best sectors added together and for sure id expect to see an ideal lap you could be getting. Get that video up if you get a chance, please

My times are all fairly consistent over a session, typically within a second of each lap so pleased to be able to repeat the times so consistently. Need data (Or most likely Broggie which was the plan at the next event) to drag me round further with times at the circuit.

If we get any more track time out there (I have 6 more days hopefully they are honored when the opportunity returns) been

Steves good - its tought to help folks looking for a second or two ...

get yourself a AIM Solo - you can then take data from elsewhere and compare but as usual the best/safest improvemnts come from being in the right place at the right speed. ;-)

Exactly what I need, have you had any time with him? One of the group I have been with and he got to sub 1,50 so sounds promising, lets hope we don't have to wait 12 months before we can even consider it.

Our bikes are still out there on the Bikes on holiday deal...
