Experience is one thing you are lacking & needed if you want to travel fast, but every darn ounce you can remove form the bike is a MUST when it comes to racing. I saw both as an ex-road racer on the circuits & you should have seen me shaving off weight on the bikes to even drilling holes in gear change & rear brake levers to hand control levers, sprockets, to even a few ounces or POUNDS in an oil tank or petrol tank, to lighter rear chains that would last for the race-----it was endless.
Besides it is best to learn to ride on Track Days or in comp events rather then public highways for in the last if you prang ("crash") you bike you will not have to wait for the ambulance & police for on the circuits they have the ambulances & trained personell. As Cookee says anyone can buy a faster bike or try to become faster which is the outlook of a novice or young person.
