Default improved lap times

     

Today I went for a training session on one of my favorite track. The track was in a very good condition and me and my father thought it was a good idea to take out the chrono and take some lap times. Last year, while I was on the 2 stroke, I had a lap time of 1min. 49 sec.!! I stopped after my first training session. My father had clocked my fastest time at 1.48. Not bad!!! Okay, drink some water have a rest and off we go. The track was a little bit rougher now but I felt good and cornered pretty nice. After I stopped by my father I saw my lap times. They all where in the 1.48 - 1.46 category, and not just one lap with 1.46 but 6 of the 20 laps I did. That are 3 sec. faster then a year ago. I feel good now

Just wanted to share!!

The great thing is, if you use a stopwatch every time you practice, your times get better and better. It makes you focus on what areas you can pick up time, like flying lower and cornering better. It's an awesome training aid. Highly recommended!
