Berry,  Moving from the 'Shot Gun seat' to the left seat is going to be a different experience.  I am absolutely sure that you will do well.  In 2008 when all four of us camped in the sun in the 110 mph division from 8:00 am to 2:30 or so waiting as rookies for the course to open was an adventure by its' self.  There were a lot more of the grumpier first timer's than the four of us.  Turns out that it was my "Lucky" day as I blew / melted the hydraulic   clutch line following 4 others @ 125+ back to LV .  Got the fire out with an ABC extinguisher.. and a tow later that evening from LV back to to LV  just in time to see the sun coming up .  Don't think I'll make an appearance this yr but next May will will give my shark grey  Z06  " El-Tibu" a run in the 125 division.

Thanks John! Yeah, that May 2008 race was one heckuva intro to ORR, wasn't it?!? I'm so glad we came back for more after that debacle, or else look at all the fun we'd have missed out on all these years! Hope to see you & your new Z06 on 318 in 2017!

BTW, if you're running 125 next May, you may find yourself lined up on the grid close to me ...
