I love the PTT Crew! I've attended almost every single event they've put on this year.

They'll take good care of you, and i'll be out there that weekend as well!

Definitely. IMO if you can't afford the enloe and reach coverage - you definitely can't afford to race.

Medical too of course!

It took me 5 years just to pay off 10% of my first accident when I was 21

i am covered with a good medical insurance so i have nothing to worry about medical. i was gonna take my nrs last 2016 but i did not. always change my mind and said 渡ah forget about it but honestly the truth is i知 scared haha. and now decided to take the nrs (if i pass) and start racing before it痴 too late.

I was nervous too. But as long as you are predictable and can hold a line, and don't crash or run off track I think you're pretty much good to go.

The hardest part is running back and forth to class in the heat

I’m still scared every race and until the flag drops I think “what the fuck am I doing here” and “I really need to piss” and “at least I’m going to pass Jay and Ken” and “I hope that one dude from 750 superbike isn’t behind me” over and over

Then once the race starts it’s recently been “wow I can’t slow down” and “at least I catch people on the brakes” and “I wonder why I miss every apex” and “thank god for liter bike power” over and over

After three laps the corner worker puts out the wrong signal because there is no way I have only gone three laps. This has to be the 5th lap, where is the white flag?? Then two laps later I see the white flag and I find a burst of energy, picking up the pace every corner until I make a mistake, then calling it and dial back the pace to where it feels slow. The cooldown lap I seem to lose my fucking mind and almost run off a few times. I’m waving to the awesome corner workers and thinking about how I just got away with riding as fast as I could as long as I could. By the time I get back to the pits I already have something to work on or some feedback and i write it down in my notebook.

I didn’t think I was ready to race, but I couldn’t get the thought out of my head. Track days in A group were boring. I wasn’t getting buzzed, in either sense of the word. So I just jumped in, and do not regret it at all

When you routinely pass AFM racers at a trackday, and you know the track like the back of your hand, you're probably ready. You should certainly be riding the A group by then and be passing more people than pass you. If you don't like it when faster riders put aggressive passes on you, you're not ready. If you love it when another rider steals your apex, and it motivates you to put your head down and try to keep up, you might be ready. Just my 2 cents. Take it or leave it.
