2012 Trackdays

Postby lucky » Thu Mar 22, 2012 10:05 am

Who is planning on doing some track days this year?

So far here are one's that I'm thinking about attending with the Buell (possibly a Triumph 675R if I can justify adding the the stable this year...)
Blackhawk Farms 6-28,6-29
Putnam 7-21, 7-22
Blackhawk Farms 7-28,7-29
Blachawk Farms 8-1
Gratten - 8-4,8-5
Gingerman 8-11, 8-12
Putnam 8-25, 8-26

The deal is I have a buddy who lives on a tropical island for the majority of the year. Nothing motorized on the island, so he comes home for a month, month and a half and we do nothing but hooligan it up on the weekends riding in Wisconsin and north eastern Iowa and hitting track days. I would love to have some of the QCSB folks meet up with us! For those that haven't done a track day, BHF is close and a blast to ride...plus the facilities and camping are nice.

So who's in?

That's...a lot of track time in a short period. :) I'm hoping to get a couple days in this year again, but I haven't gotten far enough down my to-do list to get to figuring out when or where I'm going yet. Heartland Park, Blackhawk, and Putnam are on the top of my list for places to go right now...but I need to figure out how scheduling and funds will work out. Hopefully I'll have a better handle on what I'm doing in the next month or so. :wheelie:

It is a ton of track time in a short period...it's going to be intense!
Since my buddy that comes back only gets so much leave time and he's basically having a no motorcycle breakdown, we are going to hit as many of them as we can! :rockon:

I hit all the MCRA trackdays at gateway. First one this year is may 26, then NESBA at Road America, then gateway again. I can't wait!

You sure about that? Mid-West was suspended and there aren't any RA dates on their overall list. :dunno: Unless you meant Road Atlanta.

Huh, I could have sworn there was a road America track day the Wednesday after the AMA races in June. It stood out because it was the only remaining Midwest event except for that stupid little Iowa Speedway thing.
Oh well, I guess it's just gateway for me this summer with maybe a Blackhawk farms day if I can make it happen.

Hoping to hit up a couple of motovid trackdays this year, but haven't had time to nail down the exact dates yet. :thumbup:

$265 a day? That has to be some kind of record!
