Default First Track Day!!

Had my first ever track day at Putnam Park yesterday!!
Must say that i am now addicted! Had a great time, and all the classroom time and control riders/coaches were awesome! Really couldnt have asked for better weather either! 80 degrees, low humidity, and not a cloud in sight!
have video of the first 3 sessions after lunch, i had my gopro on the tail of my bike facing me for the last session, had it on, but forgot to press the record button

and yes, the sounds quality does suck.

Good action shots. Looks like a nice track from the video, lots of long curves to sweep around.

it is a pretty nice track, especially for a novice. Its really safe, only corner thats not 'safe' is turn 10, not much run-off room between the track and the barrier for the pits, and it was really easy to learn. The surface is fairly rough, definitely needs to be resurfaced. But I definitely had a blast and cant wait to go back!!
