In early May, my better half Kenny spent 2 days at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama doing the Kevin Schwantz 2-Day Track School. Astride a school-provided Honda 600RR and Suzuki GSX-R 600, he had an absolutely great time riding and learning from the talented riders and instructors.
The 2 day school was a mixture of classroom instruction and on-track sessions. Under the tutelage of the instructor riders Brad Coleman, Reuben Frankenfield and Lee Acree, the class clustered together in groups of 3 or 4 riders and put what they learned in the classroom into action on the 2.38 mile track.
“We had driven the track in the truck once, so we already knew what the track looked like. The usual nervousness about the track was already gone. The first session was reasonably slow as people were learning the track, so it was different from a normal track day where 3 laps in you are already going balls out. It was a nice pace. I was immediately excited by all of the elevation changes and how dynamic the track was.”
