2017 Track Days

Postby Sportbiker » Thu Dec 29, 2016 4:22 pm

Well, a few are up. I'm likin' June for two STT dates (5-6, 29-30) at Road America, and I see they also have a couple of Road Atlanta dates (8/5-6, 9/23-24) I might be up for. Anybody know when Motovid will be up? Suppose I'm likely to just do the usual Wing event unless they have more weekends.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

MV is up, apparently not under their events schedule on the website, however. :dunno:

Here's the Blackhawk schedule from the event sign-up page:

Wed. May 31st
Wed. Jun 21st
Thu. Jul 20th *
Wed. Aug 23rd *
Sat. Sep 2nd
Sun. Sep 3rd
Fri. Sep 22nd **
Wed. Sep 27th
* Blue group not available
** Yellow/Blue group not available

Road America is Mon, July 10.

They're doing more with Pridmore this year, including a 2-day camp July 20-21.


No racing conflicts this season, so I'll likely be at every event on the MV schedule in one form or another.

That Sept 22nd date is... odd. Does that mean its just an Intermediate day? That seems incredibly tempting if I get 30min per hour on the track.

Likelihood they'll add dates/locations? Seems shorter than last year, but then I think I say that ever year too.

Not sure if I could swing three dates at RA in basically a one month period.

There's a licensed racer test & tune group on the Friday events (those dates are ahead of CCS weekends, there are a couple others that don't include any regular track day groups so I didn't add them in above) and that group is going to be 30min sessions.

Not likely to add any dates, but it did happen in 2015, so I won't say that it's not possible. If they do add any it would probably be Blackhawk. I'd call it extremely unlikely for an additional RA event.
