AMA Pro Supersport at Laguna Seca: Thursday, July 22
I drove down to the track early Thursday morning and set up the pit. My crack team of Munroe Motors master technician Todd Chamberlin, and friend and fellow-racer Bill Brown, arrived after lunch and we got new tires mounted on our 2008 Ducati 848 – on loan once again from our long-suffering friend, Pat Blackburn of Trackside Moto. I was entered in Friday morning’s Monterey Challenge, an exhibition race hosted by Jim Doyle, so we got my trusty 2003 Ducati 999S ready for that race too. The track was opened to foot and bicycle traffic from 2pm for an hour, so we took a nice stroll around, looking at the track surface, sighting bumps and camber changes, as well as admiring the views and shooting a few goofy pictures.
