yanking the throttle mid-turn will always cease any opportunity of passing.

it sounded more like the rear tire slipped causing the lowside. how many track days were on the tire?

That was the 4th TD on them. I wasn't running warmers and should have taken it easy on the first lap

Bike is ok, needs a clipon and a new frame slider and a little bodywork repair .. while tumbling I was praying for it not to flip I am fine.

A very few places where you can pass on this track which was a bit frustrating .. also the bump on T7 was annoying if trying to pass someone on the outside

It's normal to slide the rear in that turn...it will catch you out if you're not careful. Also, if you're not hanging off the bike or leaning it upward you'll carry too much lean angle to get on the throttle hard.

At that speed (you looked to be taking it really easy) I bet you were carrying too much lean angle and applied enough throttle to over tax the edge of your tire.

Worse in what way?


Deep,

I am just holding maintenance throttle in that spot where you spun up the rear.


BECAUSE I GET OFF ON IT!

That's what I was doing so far .. building up speed after T7 and keeping it through that S .. While I was waiting on the tow I did notice that there was a sudden dip in the track exactly where my rear broke loose .. guess that's one way of doing the track walk

Looks like you decided to go up the inside or the rider in front of you.

Sounds like you grabbed some throttle right as you went over the crest.

The bumps out the outside of 7 aren't that bad.
There are a couple of things you can do so they don't upset your chassis as much.

I have not been on VIR to date but was there really enough room to make a pass like that from that far back? It looks like you would have put both bikes in a pinch if you went for it as you say you were.

But its why I ask because I dont know the best spots on VIR.

I would have left some space on the inside for sure but there is a little straight after that turn which is a pretty good passing spot before the right hander
