You should know better !!! After all this time you should know better than to try riding "on the pace" with new guys on the track! bearing in mind
A/ You were once in their shoes and didn;t have a clue.
B/ You've seen what can happen before.
Having said that ..stopping on a track is the most stupid thing and should be banned unless
A/ you break down
B/ you crash
C/ Nil's Mrs is lying spread eagled naked at turn 4
You've been here long enough to know the Sing mentality that " i've paid my money so can do what i like lah"
I don,t think talking to them and pointing out their short falls ( especially in front of their mates) will do anything but get you abuse and or a fight.
As you guys are regular users of the Sepang facilities and support the MSS you should approach the organisers and complain. I'm sure if done right and the safety aspect is nailed they'll listen.
Try and see it from the Sing newbie perspective and mentality. They've spent loadsa wonga on bike and gear and have been winding up their mates/ girls about how good they are. They've got nerves and adrenelin oozing out of every hole.
The organisers will have to instigate an orientation course.
As i mentioned in the Nik of Time post about Zolder in Belgium.
First time there on an open track day you had to take a 30 min orientation course whether you had a full licence or not. This unfortunately means that the track session is 30 mins shorter for everybody, but safety increases no end! It's a choice!!!!!
Spliiting the track doesn;t work either as only old duffers like me are happy to just enjoy the track at any pace. The Sing guys will see it as their pride getting kicked and won;t come which in turn means you'll just get the same few riders and not enough revenue for the circuit ( how PG is still open at 25 sing an hour is beyond me)
Don;t get me wrong Ledge, your get off sucks and i'm well chuffed you will read this from the comfort of a chair rather than a hospital bed but the whole thing bares remarkable resemblance to a lot of SBR stuff. Apart from MSS spearheaded by BC's efforts, we all know the best way forward and the do's and don'ts but nobody ever does fark all about it! SO get off yer arse and start a petition or some form of letter to Sepang Jeff. You have my support and undoubtidly the support of all there on SAT/SUN
Failing that count me in on the formation of the Legend revenge death squad
