Default ASA lapping report.

Went and did the ASA lapping today. Spoilers ...It was good.

For those looking for a replacement for Speedway Time Attack, it would be a good start. Granted, it is not timed ... But there are many options to time yourself. It has the advantage of being very affordable ($100 if you are a ASN club member ... Which gives you various club options). Dollar for dollar, I would rate TJs and this pretty equal. TJs is more money, but you get more track time with less traffic and the availability to TimeAttack. As a gateway drug to the need for more open tracking, it should prove quite effective.

Nailed it. It's supposed to be low pressure, relaxed, non-competitive lapping.

It grew out of some "invite only" aka. "friends & family" lapping events that ASA used to run. But running at Castrol cost a bit more $$ to run, so now they're cautiously open but untimed & still relaxed.

We also try very hard to be novice friendly by having people willing to hop in & ride along, as well as a session of lead/follow at the start of the day for them.

Glad to see some of you guys (I saw kueda IG'ing from there) taking advantage of it too!

I enjoyed the events I got to last year and want to hit a few this year as well. Lots of fun and friendly.
