Novice Group Orientation

I'm always looking for good info for newer track riders trying to get started, and looking for the basics. The Twist of the Wrist 2 and other books are very helpful, but I thought this might be useful for a rider looking to do his or her first trackday. It's a little old and I don't agree with everything stated, but it's a good primer. Remember to read, but think for yourself.

Dude I read this twice last night. Thank you!

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

'In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.' ~Some dude named Friedrich

'Never trust authority implicitly. People are fucking scumbags.' AvE
