Jennings GP

yesterday was my first track day ever and i was wondering the first time you were at Jennings what did you struggle with. For me it was turn 11 and my lines. however i did get the hang of turn 11 and even put my knee down twice in that turn but only that turn.

Re: Jennings GP

The toughest part for me was the T4-T5 area my first time down, because you can go into that a shitload faster than you think. By the end of the weekend I was a little better, and after my first race weekend down there I had it a lot better.

Re: Jennings GP

For me it was T8. That corner sneaks up on you. That whole T7/8 area still gives me a lil trouble.

But i love me some Jennings; it is one of my favorite tracks. Last time down there i got into the :19's and can't wait to go back again.

Re: Jennings GP

My first time there it was T3 thru T5 that I had problems with!! I was being told by the CR's and instructors that you can enter that section alot faster but I could not bring myself to increase my speed! I still need some work in that area but have improved some!

Re: Jennings GP

T3 at Jennings is actually one of the fastest turns in the Southeast. You can definitely haul the mail through there. Depending on what bike im on, I will generally downshift from 6th to 4th, blip the throttle, let out the clutch and enter T3 without braking.
