Over three years, Michael Ramies went from novice to champion at Laguna Seca. What does it take to win? Practice. “The saying that practice makes perfect is absolutely true” about auto racing, he added. Also important: good training,
natural talent without an overabundance of fear, and knowing when to back off. “You definitely have to know your limits,” he said. “You don’t go into a corner at full speed and see what happens. You work up to it.” The top five racers in a class tend to have lap times that are very close to each other, he said. Right behind them is the midfield, who tend to be less than a second slower than the leaders. The rest lag by a bit more than a second. “A second sounds like

Regular weekend trains, which will continue, make more than 20 stops on north and southbound routes, Caltrain said. Caltrain officials said the new service, which will initially run as a pilot project for three months, is a response to public requests for faster weekend trips from the Peninsula to San Francisco. Caltrain said it is trying new ways to boost ridership and revenue in the face of a projected $2.3 million budget gap for its
