I like to session straight aways to work on the skills, so I stop off the track and wait for openings. I am no danger to anyone who picks a line and sticks to it. If anyone should be put in a penalty box, it is kids who go slow in the middle of the straights or ride all over the track when faster riders are trying to gun a straight. I even try to police it so that kids don't clot the striaghts. My local track does gates all night, every night of practice, but they don't enforce the no-stopping rule very strictly. If they start getting nazi about experts stopping even off the track, I will just stop coming. Who wants to just do full laps all night?
Champions /nobody wins at half tracks/But I hear ya/ I know your working on a certain part of the track.
we let riders come off at certain sections where gates are located but never get on.
I have found running the gate puts the gate starter in control of practice and if he or she pays attention to the flow of the track. Don't let the hotrods go when you got a bunch of younger slower riders out there not much of a problem.
I often thoght of enlarging certain section where they always want to stop and wait to get a good shot at the section they are working. enlarge it white strip a box and if you stop here is the chill area other wise stopping on the track is a no no in the chill area is okay.
Saftey First (no Stopping) But also trying to figure out how to make every happy.( it's hard) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/scratch_one-s_head.gif
