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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
