Unhappy 1st Trackday + Rain?

So as i posted before im going to the track for the first time on the 13th and it looks like its going to be raining in NH. I have stock tires on the 05 (218s) so any hints for what to and not to do in the rain. I wont be pushing it hard at all... so no need to tell me how not to drag my knee :) Basic info would really help.

THanks

The biggest thing to remember in the rain is to ride smooth. Make all of your transition smooth. Get off of the bike as much as possible. This will allow you to keep the bike more upright through the turn.

once thing you can do in the rain is ride a gear higher than you think you should, will help you stay smooth and keep the bike from being jumpy

HAVE FUN. It will be great experience for you man. Be positive and learn from it. COncentrate on hitting all your apex markers and being smooth. Allow yourself more time for everything.
