Best Trackday / Racing photos

Since the track crowed seems to be growing on the forum I figured we could use a thread to share our favorite pics from recent or past events. If you have a pic you want to share post up!...I'll start with a few from this month.

Pic taken by a fellow rider going onto the front straight at NJMP - Thunderbolt


Pic taken by SBImages. Been working hard on refining my body position this year.

Stamford very excited about going to NJMP in Sept for the first time it looks amazing. TC what's up with the way your holding the grip? I'm sure it's on purpose please explain.

If you think you can or can't do it then your probably right!

These are my 2 of my favorites, both at Monticello Motor Club (you are missed!)

Purely show boating for the camera:


Just a cool shot that I like shows the rumble strips and flowers.

Screwdriver grip? Keeps your wrist from getting locked when dropping your elbow so that you can get your upper body down more. Notice Unconnected does it too. Without it, you need extreme lean angles to drag elbow (although, I've not done it yet, getting close)

You guys are killing it!

I'm still pretty fresh on the track, but only a couple guys pass me while in Novice. I rode 4 Road Atlanta Track Days in July. Here's a video:

I want to say Sept 22 and 23 with TPM. Just started riding track this year and finally decided to get a few pictures last month.
Might have to try the "screwdriver grip" next time to get down lower, never realized that my wrist might be the culprit.

Thanks! That's my $15 Krylon rattle can special so it's cool when someone compliments the looks. I wanted a design that was carried over from the helmet. It was cheap enough I can play around and change it without feeling too bad

I have a twin!!
I suggest not reserving much attention to your wrist, but rather to just keep a loose grip in general. Thats how I ended up with that style grip. Though my elbow drag I was intentionally holding the grip lower.
You dont want to be putting any kind of input into the bars at that kind of lean angle.

Loosey goosey
