Glad to Join!
« on: June 15, 2020, 04:27:07 AM »

Hello Everyone! My name is Vu Nguyen and I am new to PRE. Just had an amazing weekend with y’all at VIR North! I was 769 on the white and black R6 and was part of the pile up at the grid.... unfortunate that happened and never expected that to happen but thanks to the people in the paddocks and the PRE staff, I was able to get my bike back and out there!

Also thanks to the PRE staff to get myself familiar with the track again! Haven’t been to VIR since last September and only been a handful of times.

Also, I’ve noticed quite a lot of problems on the track, too. Is it that common to have that many crashes/mechanicals? Seemed like intermediate had the most problems...

Thank you all for an amazing weekend! Hope to come back soon!

Hi Vu, it was nice to meet you. The pile up on the grid was crazy. Glad you were able to get back out there.

The number of incidents and mechanicals is not typical. I think it had to do with the extended time off. Maybe a little pent up excitement and also bikes sitting in garages longer than normal.

Hope to see you out there again soon.

Yeah everyone needs to keep in mind while it’s June ,that was the first or second day of the season for many.
Add to that people not being honest with themselves about their talent level.

It’s a trackday zero reason to take someone out.

You can push just do it solo.

First thing everyone should do on the track is Think. Then twist the throttle.

Glad you got back out there thanks for riding with us. Hope to see you out there again soon.

Was good to meet you, Vu. Glad the friendly folks in the PRE paddock got you back on track. They’re a great bunch.

I'm not slow; I'm deliberate :D
