I have Virginia International Raceway (4.5 hours away), Summit Point (5 hours away), and North Carolina Center for Automotive Research (2 hours away).

My first.. 10 or 12 were just one a weekend. Then I decided to really spend some money and do 2 days at VIR. The amount of progression I saw from doing 2 days in a row was amazing, so I just continued doing 2 at a time. Last track weekend was November 24,25th and it was 28 degrees in the morning, warmed up to a lovely 45 degrees.

I signed up for Jennings GP on January 19,20, and 21, but i'm not sure there was enough interest for the day to be scheduled.

Re: Number of Track Days

I voted 12-20 but I am not sure of the exact number. Probably a little over a dozen plus another maybe 6-8 in my Miata.

Have 7 days I am planning for Buttonwillow next year with Let's Ride. Plus, hopefully we can do an R6 forum day at Chuckwalla. Plus a few Socal Supermoto days.

Re: Number of Track Days

My first year at it, really only got the bike track'd out a few months back... Got 3 diff weekends in. The first was a total bust, I was leaking oil. The second weekend was tits, but first session out I highsided like 3-4 laps in... It was rough, spent the day rebuilding, got back out the rest of the afternoon. 3rd weekend out was an absolute blast, and finally had a completely successful weekend! It was also a race weekend, So saturday I practiced all day and got my race license, then Sunday I raced. It was a ton of fun! Came in 4th my first race. The others, were full of FAST amateurs, so I was coming in somewhere 7-10 range...

Next year I'll hit it early and often! Hoping to really build up my skills and hopefully be competetive! I'm also planning on venturing out to other tracks as well next year. A trip to Cali is in the works, and possibly heading east to hit a track or two in TX, possibly NOLA... We'll see how it all plays out. With a track just over an hour away, I think next year will be a very fun year! I'll be there every weekend I can be!

This track thing has DEFINITELY grown throughout the forum!

I'm glad it did too, because I'd prob be dead at this point. I'm sticking to the track... Doubt I'll ever ride two on the street again...

My goal in life is to do well enough in one CCS event to win contingency money so I can tell people I get paid to race

I'm hoping to be fast enough to be competitive by Spring 2014. I'm still way too slow, but I've only done 4 events. Next year I'm stepping it up.

At some point I'd love to race and win... That may take a year, or a few... Either way I'll be out there having a blast and getting better each time! I'm hoping my learning curve is shorter, but who knows. We shall see how it all plays out. By the time I'm Amateur going Expert, I hope I'm winning somewhat regularly. But that all remains to be seen. In a couple years I'll have the salaried job to really support this hobby... Till then, I'm going to make the best of it! Almost have the bike perfected to my liking, now it's time to perfect my skills.

Re: Number of Track Days

2012 was my first time at the track and I only did 6 days. Hoping to do at least 1 weekend a month in 2013 kicking off the season at Road America in May.
When I bought a wrecked bike in 2009 I rebuilt it back in street trim. What a dumbfcuk idea that was. Between the amount of money I put in to make it street worthy and then what I've done this year in track trim, I'd have a VERY nice track bike.
