A big "THANK YOU" to the great folks at N2 for hosting such a fantastic event. This was my first track event and I got to spend 2 full days. I can tell you that it was well worth the investment. I say "investment" because the skills and confidence that I took with me far outweighed the paltry admission price. The entire staff from N2 was bloody awesome and the attendees were great, too. There was an overwhelming spirit of helpfulness and kinship present, and I must say that my expectations were exceeded. There was classroom instruction, a walk of the track, 2-up rides with Scott Russell, repairs by Marietta Motorsports, and a 20 minutes of riding every hour. Chris even loaned me his gloves after some douche-bag spectators stole mine. I didn't ride with Russell because of the never-ending line list, but I heard that it was phenomenal. They passed me on one wheel several times, which made me chuckle. Marietta Motorsports was doing their best to keep up with the heavy demand, too, and weren't gouging people in the process. I had my clutch fluid changed a few days beforehand but it wasn't bled properly so Huey fixed that and my Brembos were rock solid again. Jonathan led the track walk on foot and showed us all the important points along with great advice. Chris ran the in-class instruction with help from Anne Roberts and Scott Russell (plus one other young racer that I can't remember by name - sorry). I learned a ton of riding skills that I will take with me to the streets and back to the track forever; trail braking, body position, foot position, engine braking, tire pressure, targeting, etc. Day 1 was a bit rough since I did't know the track and I was operating on only 2.5 hours sleep, but the CRs really helped get me acclimated and to feel secure. On the second day things started to gel and I was able to put together all the stuff I was learning. I am now braking later, cornering faster, and my overall skill and comfort level has increased significantly. I dragged a knee in every corner except turn 1, and I'm doing it better and more confidently. Just one question... when is N2 coming back to Road Atlanta?
