I hope it's ok to post a little video here
(I tried to uploaded here but I am getting "invalid file" all the time... so uploaded on youtube instead)
This was my first ever official race, last July at Serres circuit. I qualified in the fifth row (not bad but not good either) but did a great start and turned 4th in turn 1
. Result: 3rd in the "new riders" category
and 7th overall.
Enjoy (14secs but still I enjoyed it
(not much of a video but i think it captures all there is to capture)
That launch was insane! I bet the rest of the guys thought you had some corse gp launch control. When you say the sweet spot is between 5000 to 5500rpm do you rev the throttle to that rpm with the clutch engaged and then let out the clutch with care when the light turns green or just dump it?
Pretty cool to see the diff in your start versus the other guys.
