Guys,

Scotty and I picked up a suggestion from a "wise old" racer to spend some time on a road course training. One thing about the "old guys" the've been there before. Thankfully we took his advise.

This course really gave Scotty and I a new perspective as we look at the racecourse. We communicate better and plan our lines with the knowledge that we are creating the fastest line. Ever heard of the saying you don't know what you don't know. We'll it really applies here

The course cost about as much as a couple of tanks of fuel for the boat and was worth more than any test day we ever had. I encourage all our fellow racers to take a couple of days and hone your skills. It will make you a better racer.

Some may not be happy we are letting this training secret out but If it helps any of you get faster run safer and win ....were cool with that.

Marc and ScottyB
