I wish I had someone there to time me. we were all there for classes so in no means was it really competitive.
It is really hard to make it work in the corners if the guys won't "breath" the throttle a little bit to let you go on the straights.
If you are better in the corners and are on a guys ass coming to the straights the proper way to run is the guy let's you go and then the next lap you will stretch out on them.
Most guys ego won't let them do this though and unless you have good corner workers that will help you with passing flags, ect or instructors that pay attention it is hard to do.
