Default Schools & Trackdays

A good foundation are courses like the Superbike School http://www.superbikeschool.com/or equivalent, where you are taught proper riding techniques for the track by professionals. You'll learn basics & fundamentals for track riding. Smooth is fast.

If you can't afford a superbike type school, there are trackdays offered by organizations that offer riding classes for first time track riders. The instructors will teach you how to ride on the track. The control-riders (riding instructors) will be on the track w/ you & show you proper lines & offer tips on how to ride the track properly.

+1.

On my first trackday I went thru the riding classes with 2Fast. Was definitely worth it. I came in knowing nothing about track e***uette, riding position, braking techniques, passing rules etc and they taught us all of it. Without it I wouldn't be as good a rider and would have probably pissed off a lot of people or even worse crashed.

Its better to learn from professionals than trial and error.

Totally agree guys. It's a different world once your on the track and different from street riding. You MUST learn track etiquette which will yield you becoming a better rider as previously said.

Track days have made me a much better rider.

I started heading to the track in 2008. Currently am planning on making most of the NESBA days in the Midwest region. I didn't do any schools before heading to the track, and the folks at NESBA gave me the info and support to get going.

A good trackday org will provide instruction, feedback, and have a good pre-ride tech inspection. There are quite a number of trackday orgs that provide a quality track experience.

If you love speed, and want a place to ride fast without traffic, cops, inattentive drivers, or stoplights, the track is the place.

Approximately how much is a track-day class like that?

The one I did with 2Fast at Pacific Raceways was $269 for the trackday and class. The trackday without the class was $169.
