How were you introduced to the racetrack? I always had a fascination for getting out on track. When a friend of mine invited me to join a course held at a local track (Moto Survival School @ Apex), I jumped at the opportunity. I arrived nervous and left addicted. I'm fortunate to have had mentorship in the beginning. Without it, I think things would have been too intimidating.
