Re: Trackday Clubs?

We have 6 trackday orgs here in Texas and none of them have membership fees so I end up riding them based on which weekend I want to ride then I pick the track because they are all within 2 hours from my house.

Blue because it is faster.

Re: Trackday Clubs?

I've done quite a few and enjoy team promotion trackdays the best so far. They are pretty laid back like myself and the groups seem to be grouped correctly as far a riding ability is concerned. Nothing will improve your riding skills like riding on the track. Me and a couple friends are doing the first one of the year at VIR North Course (same course AMA races on) March 17th. This will be the first time I will ride my 2006 R6 on the track. My last R6 was a 2003 model. Come join us, we'll be in a big all white fun mover RV.

fee is $40. doing may 09 pocono raceway east course. its a small org. and they claim to be not strict and laid back. i spoke with jose plamenco, and he seems very nice.

side note-they have a schedules at the new track in NJ Millville motorsports (thunderbolt or something) not familiar with this town, but i might try the fresh pavement.

Re: Trackday Clubs?

ya im prob going to do most of my days through teampromotion, only heard good things from them. Only problem thats stopping me is finding either a tow hitch/trailer for my jeep, or finding someone near me to ride with.

+1 on NJ motorpark. I got a thread up of that place with some recent pics on here somewhere. Looks nice, and not to far from me, about a 30min drive

I'm one of the coaches for Team Promotion, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Might want to check out each of the clubs to see which one you like the best. I'm of course partial to TPM but I've ridden with Nesba and I've never ridden with Absolute but I know the owner over there Roy Cadoo very well and I'm sure it is a well run event.

Put the suspension back on the bike today, installed new throttle bodies, ajusted the idle (pain on the 2006 have to use a manual screw to block the throttle from closing all the way), just need to change out all the fluids and she is ready for VIR in three weeks.
