Good to know it’s available there. I don’t really plan on riding Summit but know to ask if AF is going to be deployed should I decide to go.

Thank you Kevin. We just want everyone to use it at any track where it is available.

There is still another track in the region where it's available but its not always used. PRE doesn't ride there, but some of our customers do.

John do you mind if I ask which track?

What bothered me the most is that some of those ORGS are 100% aware that the soft barriers are there for them to use.  They just wont put forth the effort to deploy them.  Personally.  If i owned/Ran a track day org and one of my riders got hurt due to me being lazy or unmotivated, i couldnt live with myself.

I usually cant make it in time to help deploy the air fence.  But i damn sure make sure i donate at the meet and greets and im trying my best to make it to the fund raiser.


Some people just blow my mind

Finally posted.   S2 and S8 had technical issues but here's the rest of them.

Joel,

Thanks for the videos, great tool.  I was the short bus rider in session 3 - sorry to hold you guys up for a bit there until Steve escorted me out of the way.

Next track day my primary focus will be on body position, secondary of improving my lines through 2 and the carousel/hog pen sections.  If the stars align I'll be on a smaller bike, and I have your videos to watch showing clean lines.  Both of those should help with some effort on my part.

I really enjoyed the day and look forward to seeing you guys in June.

Sorry for the delay...  good talking to you at the end of the day. Glad you had a good time.  :-D    South course is wicked fun and a good place to practice braking since there's run-off at the top of the hill.   Everybody thinks I'm nuts, but I love rain track days.  Great way to practice BP.

Thanks John. I didn't realize that. I am lot sure how much it helps but I know I'll continue to look out posts about air fence and posts about track days where I see no air fence was used. I do think continually bringing it up and those threads getting hundreds of comments ultimately gets someone's attention. Hopefully that means some day they will all use it.

Another thank you for all that everyone involved does. Makes me proud to call PRE my home org!

I simply didn't want to muddy up the other thread by talking about FB but I just wanted to post something that I think is progress and I think is working toward what John always talks about... Awareness.


Some of you may have seen a large thread on FB ( 2 different ones actually) that were about VIR the other day and no air fence being used. No clue how I became known as the airfence nazi but someone I am not even friends with messaged me asking if I saw air fence wasn't used on Monday lol. Weird to randomly tell me that but I'm glad they did.

 Anyway, Some words were exchanged and lots of things said from lots of ppl and lots of ppl that are on this forum and ride with PRE but at the end of it all I saw a post from a director of another org saying they will absolutely be deploying air fence at their next event.

It made me smile because I think this hits on that next level John talks about beyond raising money. Social media provides a great platform to be able to talk about these things and bring awareness. It's a fine line to balance org bashing and bringing awareness because ppl kind of stop listening and you lose credibility if you start with something like "tpm sucks" or "just come ride with PRE". Lol

I just wanted to come in here and say thanks to everyone who commented. Also for those who aren't on Facebook much, to point at that it's possible that this Facebook thread results in an org using the air fence at their next day.

I've been riding with this particular group of folks (before PRE, it was called something else)for 13 years now. We have witnessed first hand how somber a day can turn without that air fence up. That paddock grows silent. And a helpless feeling comes across you.

Last Monday brought back a lot of memories only because of the tears of joy that came over me after arriving at T6 and seeing no one in a panic.


This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ :adore:
