With Fast Frank blasting the 999 out of turn 12 with the rear squirming as the Ducati hammered its horsepower to the ground, the 999’s rear end filling my view slid violently sideways.

Fast Frank Shockley, Julian Taylor from All About Bikes, a Sportbike Track Time weekend, and the two hottest Euro middleweights on the planet wearing brand-new Bridgestone racing slicks. Add in a race-prepped Ducati 999 for on-board camera duties by my film crew from Speed.com and rolling south to Carolina Motorsports Park in South Carolina at the end of last year a mad weekend was clearly in the works.

The flash of white in front of the Ducati told me Fast Frank was inches from the back of Julian’s rear wheel, and as the wily old fox took a short flight out of the seat, he quickly feathered the throttle and got both wheels back in line. I let go of the breath I was holding and stayed hard on the gas barreling into turn 14. Using the Ducati 848 EVO’s superior brakes, I slid by Frank and slipped in behind Julian, as the Triumph Daytona 675R he was riding scythed through the turn and started the run down to turn one.
