Took the little bike out to race this weekend and had a blast. It was the first time I had ever raced a 250, having dropped down from a Formula Twins class. I did it for cheaper tires that last longer and to be in a stock class where people can't dump thousands of dollars into their motors.
Anyway, I ran 4 races over the span of the weekend. I qualified front row for them and by the last race of the day I got down to within a second and a half from the lap record in my class. My teammate owns the current record so now we've got a great rivalry going. A 5th, couple 4ths (one of them by half a wheel), and a 3rd place rounded out the weekend. It was a good first outing. Looking forward to dropping that remaining second or so and hanging with the 2 aliens at the front the whole race.
