I'm on the same boat in that I'm more comfortable with the left turns than I am with rights, which makes ACS tricky for me since the more challenging corners on this course are both right-handers: the hairpin coming into the bridge and 90 right after the bridge.
Yes, I ran ACS with Fastrack and they were really cool. I didn't sign up for the class though :/ They had to bump us into Level 2 after the 2nd session and that helped a lot with the traffic and being able to ride into a rhythm and really learn though, so that was cool.

cool, and yeah lookig good man. Q2s are good tires but once they start constantly pushing or spinning up I would suggest upgrading. You'll learn alot doing that shit but risk goes up substantially.

Also i would suggest getting a clear windscreen for track days.

I don't know if they do it all the time, but I want to get a 1-on-1 with the racer guy there (as if they're not expensive enough already!) He's with the tire vendor. I wanna be like Ricky Bobby: "Im goin faasst!!"

Others have covered the pointers already so I'll just say sweet pic, especially for a first timer. Enjoy it while it lasts, at the rate you're going you'll be racing in no time and blowing every cent you have on tires and entry fees, lol.
