Track Day at Laguna Seca?

Has anyone done a track day at Laguna Seca (Mazda). I am a Group 1 (Novice) rider who has completed the initial OPRT rider training. It is a track I have always wanted to go around but I'm not sure who to ask.
Any advice on what organization to contact?

Thanks in advance!

I would start with the Google machine, and search for "Motorcycle track day Laguna Seca" and see what pops up. If it's anything like the tracks around here, there should be a few outfits who run track days and schools.

Fun Track Dayz 2018 Event Schedule | Fun Track Dayz does days there too. I've never been, but I've heard that you're going to need to make sure your exhaust isn't too loud or you'll get black flagged. Some bikes are too loud from the factory.

Twins are generaly loud and if You have any aftermarket Pipes your probably over, but unless they have a roving db meter usualy they set it up on the hill leading to the corkscrew so you can just baby it up the hill.

Fred,

If you can wait til June, a few of us PNW'ers are doing Laguna Seca on Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th, and Sonoma on Monday June 11th. I'm already signed up for all 3 days.

June 9th: http://www.trackdaz.com/site/

June 10th: https://www.pacifictracktime.com/event-sign-up/

June 11th: Keigwins@TheTrack - Event Schedule

As for noise, I took my SV650 race bike there in 2015. It had a full M4 exhaust with a quiet insert in the slip-on, and I could pass the sound booth at full throttle. It was one of my favorite passing places because all the literbikes had to let off! If you still have a stock exhaust for your Falco, you will be just fine.

Paul
