Groups 1 and 2 (both 2A and 2B) have class between each session.Ridesmart is a good group. Novice group has class before each session on track. Plenty of coaches.
COTA is a world class facility. Best track in the states, period. The math adds up, RS really doesn't make much money at COTA but having it on the roster creates excitement so it's a smart move to have.Once you do your first day at lv1 the next time you come are you lvl2 or is there something else that had to happen first?
Also it seems like cotw is $459 while all the other tracks are $160. Why such a difference in price?
Jesus how big are the groups there? I did some simple math for chuckwalla once. 3 groups of 30, so 90 riders. $150/ticket, so $13,500. That wouldn't even be enough for half of what COTA is asking lol.I did RS at Cresson last year to test out the R3 and they made all bikes under 500cc run in Level 1, so be ready for that. After they realized half of the class was there to get lightweight practice for the CMRA race the following weekend, they said we could skip the classroom portion.
The reason they charge so much for COTA is it costs $35,000 a day to rent the track, if you use your own cornerworkers. If you use their staff, its $50K a day.
That was the rule. Not sure if it's a normal thing, or maybe they just expected a lot of ULW bikes because we were racing there the following weekend.They made lightweight bikes ride Level 1? I've never heard of them doing that. They just will not let lightweight bikes ride Level 3, especially at COTA where the speed differentials can be near triple digits.
Ridesmart charges $400 per day, per person to ride at COTA.Jesus how big are the groups there? I did some simple math for chuckwalla once. 3 groups of 30, so 90 riders. $150/ticket, so $13,500. That wouldn't even be enough for half of what COTA is asking lol.
You need to get comfortable with the track layout/lines and also with passing and being passed. If you find yourself getting stuck behind slower riders, then learn to pass. IF you find yourself passing most of the riders, then get an instructor to follow you and see how you ride, they'll bump you up to Lvl2 if they think you are ready.Once you do your first day at lv1 the next time you come are you lvl2 or is there something else that had to happen first?
