    Speculative Lap Time

    Hi All,

    So, I'm going to COTA here in Austin, TX next month for my first track days. My wife asked me what kind of lap times I expected. To be honest, I haven't a clue, much less a care. I'm looking forward to shoring up some techniques without minivans, texters, gravel, etc. It did have me wondering what a Marc Marquez would do on a 2017 RF at COTA with the same set up... no slicks, just the stock Pirellis. I believe the MotoGP record is 2:03

    Having no track experience, I couldn't even venture a guess. Anyone have any idea?

    Well Bobby Fong ran a 2.10 in susperstock, so Marquez on a bone stock RSV4 would probably be about 2 or 3 seconds quicker. If this is your first track day I would say you will be doing good to get down to 2.30

    1st trackday?

    Based on Ridesmart requiring consistent laps below 2:55 for the Advanced group, I'd say you'd be kicking butt to get below 3:00.

    I'm jealous you get to ride COTA. I'd love to give that track a shot - been there 3 times for GP and F1.

    Thanks for the input guys. Frankly, if I lap in the half an hr bracket for my first day, I'm cool with it
