I was thinking of taking notes after each session, per track. But I was unsure if what to put, probably stuff like "go faster into turn 1." "Turn 3 is banked, I can carry more speed. Take it a BIT quicker." "Turn 7 is full throttle all the way through, don't be scared."
But idk lol. For now I'm just taking lap times and recording them.
What kind of notes do you take?
Well everyone approaches things differently, so you have to find what works best for you.
But for me, I write down EVERYTHING I can remember from that session. Literally everything.
I have this personal issue with the lack of emotion. An actual clinical issue... lol Because of this I have a hard time focusing on the task at hand. My mind likes to wander... I find myself looking off in the distance, what's that corner worker doing? Hey, look at the birds... LMAO!
So I write down EVERYTHING!!! How many birds were there? What was that corner worker doing?
When I read this back later I can asses how much I need to work on. If my mind is free enough to do this, then I can go MUCH faster.
EVERYTHING is relevant!!! Everything!
But, for suggestions? Start with noting things you don't know, as opposed to things you know.
Saying T-X is a full throttle exit, that's something you obviously know. How's that going to help you the next time out?
But things you DON'T know... Now that can be helpful!
"Man, I didn't like how the front felt in T-x..."
"Think I'm catching the limiter on that exit of T-x... Maybe I need to look at gearing? Or rolls speed so I can use a higher gear?"
"I had 3 feet of track left on that exit, I must be able to be more aggressive on the throttle there"
"I kept getting out-broke into T-x... Can I improve there? Was the bike stable? What was I feeling? Can I move my brake marker?"
Now afterwards you can go back and read these notes and then think through these things. Grab a track map, watch one of your videos with these questions in mind. Maybe watch some other peoples videos and see how they approach these areas. Do you see them doing or struggling with the same things? Do you have an advantage? Do they have an advantage?
I hope that makes SOME sense...
