Had this conversation with a couple of folks who spend much time on the track. One of the big things that they advised me is that some folks aren't comfortable pushing on the throttle hand. Seems to make some sense, but I can't say that is my reason for feeling more comfortable in the left handers. I think it has more to do for me, with the fact that on the streets here in the US, seeing through the rights is rough (as someone already posted). On a racetrack I don't really feel a bias (unless I just blow the entrance).
