Hopefully I can make it. Right now I should be able to. So, about how much track time does one get at one of these events? On the bike I'm used to 5-6 sessions, about 20 minutes each. Usually by session 6 I am getting pretty tired and back off a bit.

What is a decent lap time out there in a boosted Miata with summer tires on the 2.9 mi course, going CCW?

In a car you normally get 4 sessions a day for about 25 minutes each.

Honestly, i don't know what a good lap time is in a boosted miata as i have never timed my laps. This time will be my first with a lap timer. Most of the time the course is run CCW and it is pretty rare it is run CW.

Yeah we never, ever race it CW on bikes. The entrance to the chicane going the other way would be... interesting.

My best time on my SV650 is a 1:57 something, which is decent. The really fast guys in the CMRA on liter bikes can run in the 1:41 range, which is just sick.

I'll contact you in the next few months. My youngest son is going to be staying around those parts for the next 2 years. He's no gearhead but he's a nice guy.

I will write my laptimes in the blood of the non-believers.

San Antonio...I think I have had time on almost every track in Texas plus Hallett. Most of my time at TWS and Cresson, followed by MSR Houston...
