Laguna Seca December 1st & 2nd Track Masters track day

So, I thought my track days for the season were over, and in the middle of prepping my bike for next season, Zoom Zoom decides to send me an e-mail about a Laguna Seca track day hosted by Track Masters on December 1st and 2nd. It will be a joint day with two groups of cars and two groups of motorcycles. $320 covers both days, and there are no single day sales.

I was wondering if anyone else was going or if anyone had even heard about it? I was totally unprepared. I just got track plastics put on my bike but they aren't even painted yet. I'll be going with the factory primer.

I'm a little nervous because I have a midpipe with the factory muffler. I am worried about blowing the 92 decibel limit without the stock header. Does anyone near Monterey have a spare? At first I wasn't worried about putting on a midpipe. I figured if I go back to Laguna Seca I'll just baby it past the sound booth but now that the time has arrived I am wishing I had a spare.

Anyway, I haven't heard much about this track day and the information on the website is pretty limited. I found out that the novice and intermediate level riders will be together in the same session and advanced will have their own session. I hope I'm not getting in too far over my head but I signed up for the advanced group. I hope I'm not too much in the way but the last time I rode with C group on Laguna Seca I never got a single clean lap.

Let me know if anyone else is attending. Here is the link to the site:

I have a stock pipe..located in SF tho..

Watch out for dirt and sand on the track as cars usually go off course and kick up dirt onto the track

Thanks, but I just found someone who is letting me borrow her stock pipe. And that is a good point about sand and dirt. I didn't think about it. The same thing happens with motorcycles, but I guess cars probably kick up a lot more.

Damn! That is an awesome deal!!! I cannot see if they are sold out...wants me to sign in.

I would be really tempted if the weather was looking better. The only trackday I have ever done at Laguna (in my car) got cut short because it was raining too hard and they closed the track.

Re: Laguna Seca December 1st & 2nd Track Masters track day

We typically have pretty good weather in Monterey around this time, but then again that can change. Sometimes the weather changes 2-3 times in one day. As of now rain is in the forecast for next weekend. I hope it is nice out though. Otherwise this will be an expensive rainy day. One thing I have learned, you never can trust the forecast in Monterey.

No need for envy. We are under a flood advisory on the Monterey peninsula. This weekend is going to suck. I wonder how many people will even show up.

Re: Laguna Seca December 1st & 2nd Track Masters track day

Well, today wasn't too bad. The the sun actually came out and dried up the track for most of the day, the last session got a little rain and made things slick at the end. Tomorrow is supposed to be a 95 percent chance of rain so I might not be so lucky. I did put on a pair of race rain tires, so we will see how those do.

I also got meat balled on sound. I went by at 99 db in the first session. That was taking it easy with stock exhaust and race intake. After that, I went by the sound booth in 6th gear, with no additional problems.
