    Default Super Teams

    Ok, so after hearing about the endurance races while attending the NRS classroom this weekend, i really would like to see us get more of them! It sounds like a great way to get a run of the track and focus on the technique, lines, etc for the real races. As being a Novice, I am hoping to get a team together IF we can get a shorter race together, the 8 hours of Memorial Day sounds fun and all but not this season.

    I have a 2007 Suzuki GSXR that WAS my track bike, but now it just sits since i found my R6R. If anyone is interested in setting up a super team OR if anyone is interested in getting a newer "door knob" bike, let me know.

    Here is the problem with endurance racing or at least setting up a competitive endurance bike ....
    I have a $1100 into just being able to put 5 gal of gas in the tank
    in under 6 sec

    $1400 in being able to change tires in under 15 sec

    Pluse all the suspension and other race parts you need to be competitive

    And here is the best part I have 2 other riders that can toss my huge investment down the track and be out nothing hahaha

    And all this for 1 endurance race on the calendar ....

    uh yeah I don't think anyone changed a tire the last endurance race , and if we did it was to swap to rains just so the we could switch back 30 min later

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that 99.9% of the bikes on the grid last endurance race poured their gas in the tank

    so

    yeah its not like you see on TV but pretty damn close most oh and most us had a gentlemen's agreement about wadding up the bike

    How do you not change a tire in a 6 hour race?

    Awesome. Like i mentioned, i have a K7 just sitting. If that bike gets wadded up, I'm really not out anything at this point. I'd like to sell it or see it get some use. As with that model, it has the recall on the front master cylinder-i know it has issues since it sent me into the pavement at Jennings a couple years ago.

    Anyway, IF any extras are added (hopefully shorter than the memorial day race) I appreciate it Thadzx10R! Really i see it as an opportunity to get more track time and actually be able to see/talk with the more experienced guys. The way i figure it, if you're teaming with a novice, you're really not expecting to win it but that's the goal. I'm interested in getting the experience and having fun!

    Thanks guys!

    As a novice, I couldn't really care less about being competitive in an endurance race. The seat time and general fun of being at a race track for 8 hours is what appeals to me.

    If anyone is interested in starting a team, or is looking for teammates let me know.
