Looking at doing Track Days near Minneapolis, MN. WHERE? Websites?

Just prepping for when we move (retiring in MN) so I'm gathering as much info now. Wifey and I have discussed a yearly trip to Wisconsin to do Road America for at least two weekend track time BUT if there are some place closer then its even better. I thought I saw one in Brainnerd, MN. Thanks!

Will do. How much for a day or full weekend? How far is that? From Brooklyn Park where some family members live, it seems pretty damn close.

Road America, Elkhart Lake, WI But ya gotta wait 'til next year.

Check out: trackdaymag.com to find all the tracks available in the country.

Then checkout: sportbiketracktime.com for, what I consider, the best trackdays available in the Midwest.

Hope to see you out on the track next year.

Re: Looking at doing Track Days near Minneapolis, MN. WHERE? Websites?

ok basically there is one track IN minnesota and that is BIR. From you in Brooklyn Park you are looking at about 2-2.5 hours drive. Other tracks with in a reasonable distance:
-Road America: 6hr
- Black Hawk- Not exactly sure, but about 6 hr
- Mid America Motorplex: 6 hr, but is currently under water and it may not ever be ridable again
- Motorpark Hastings: Closer to 7 hrs

Trackday provider at BIR (the only one) Is ZARS

Sportbike track time effing RAPES you though... That org can blow on my nut sack. I'd rather do NESBA or motovid.com (best value, hands down at Blackhawk farms) any day.

Funny, that's what I think about NESBA and WERA. I do like motovid, but I want to ride on more tracks than BHF.

Re: Looking at doing Track Days near Minneapolis, MN. WHERE? Websites?

All inputs welcome and thanks all. I will definitely hit ZARS at BIR for ALL their trackdays since it's so close. I will check out the other orgs. Any open session formats with the above track organization? Thanks again for the inputs!
