anyone going to mid ohio on monday? weather looks decent and the keyhole is slightly less crappy after the patching

I think a few people are going, I won't be making it though.

 

Had a good day at NCM last Saturday palling around with the TDW crew & Hoblick, despite the rain - that track dries out so fast. Didn't hit the lap times I was hoping for but still shaved a bit off of last time at least.

I also got to see what happens when a dumdum rams a coach right when his knee is touching the apex marker... ratty SV650 vs a stupid expensive R1. Luckily for the coach his left leg took 100% of the impact. Also luckily for the coach his femur didn't snap in half when the SV rider bent his forks back slamming into the coach's leg. Somehow he managed to keep it up and there was not a scratch on his bike, but there were a few large chunks missing from the left side of his rear tire - looks like tire vs brake caliper as some of the cuts were clean like a blade had sliced out sections. No bone damage, just really bad contusion, glad he didn't get hurt worse, it could have been really really bad considering where it happened (turn 15, the left right after table top)...  As for the SV and its rider -  the bike is totaled and the rider got banged up a bit but to my knowledge didn't require any medical attention.

 

Takeaway from this - keep your eyes forward and keep yourself/bike under control.

I will go. Are you sure it isn’t cancelled? They are pretty bad at communicating their cancellations.

This year (at least so far) they've been emailing anyone registered the friday before, by noon if it's cancelled.

 

I emailed Gwen Friday and it wasn't cancelled as of then. Should be good to go this time

Unfortunately, the wife vetoed my plans for Nelson's. Apparently, we have others plans that's she failed to tell me about. Maybe Pitt later in the year.

Better sign up now. Pitt sells out pretty often. Last weekend we were there it was sold out 3 weeks in advance. Also by signing up early you can tell your wife YOU have plans then.

Anyone know if Nelsons Ledges paddock is open the night before to drop a trailer like PittRace is?  I'm going for my first time on 7/31.  Their website is a little sparse on details.
