Nothing to worry about mayn. Sounds like you would do fine in the B+ group or A group even.

They do things a lil different. B- is a slower intermediate group and B+ is a faster intermediate group.

Here is more info on laptimes to help you group your self, that is if you know your pace at these given tracks.
http://www.keigwins.com/aboutevents_general.php

I have only been to buttonwillow once so I have no idea what my lap times are like there (and this when I was a complete newbie to trackdays).

I have done trackdays with the keigwins all season long so far, I bought a 20 ticket pack with them. Lance (the owner) runs a top notch show all the time... You will not be disapointed.

I am in no way affliated with the keigwins, I am just a happy customer that pays them good to money to ride

If you are running a B group at most other tracks, the B+ group is for you. The B- group in my experience was pretty slow, more like a "c" group pace.

I have been to Buttonwillow once before for a two day track event. I like the flow off that track.. not as smooth as Thill but still fun.

I will be in the B+ group... an yeah this year I have been a track whore:all_coholBut I am loving every bit off it!

sometimes it sprinkles a lil golden shower at night, but it's clear and ground is dry by the time we're riding.

bwahahaha, thats how we roll! lol.

youre a super duper uber track whore mang! thats alot of trackdays in one season. why are you still running B groups? figured with all that under your belt, you'd be A group by now.
ive never done miller or cali spdway. those are on my list of tracks to do. just expensive. im gettin all my kicks and practice on the cheaper trackdays for now.

I have been playing it safe thats why I am not in the A group yet :icon_lol:

I have just been focusing on the fudementals, being smooth, using good lines, bp etc.

Currently my pace is a upper B group pace. I should be in the A group within the next couple trackdays though.

haha dont be following me either, I am slow too. That an when I did ride buttonwillow the first time, I was pretty new to trackdays back then and I had no sense off what a "line" was:icon_lol:
Trackdays are awesome they really put your ego in check. Because there is always some one thats going to make you feel like your standing still haha.
