Tons of good choices, but most importantly you want to get them done before the track day. Nothing worse than stressing out the morning of while you're waiting for the tire vendor to swap your tires.

You're taking your Ducati? What's on it now?

Talk to Optimum Performance Motorsports. They'll hook you up with some Q3's that are fantastic for the track and street. Also, most definitely try to do it before the actual track day! Brakes are pretty easy, i like EBC HH for the street, for the price they're hard to beat.

I have Dunlop Q2's, but they're old, I had been out of the country for a few years and haven't changed them since i've been back (11 months ish). But i've also just been putting around on it. Needed to be changed anyways, no excuse is better than a day at the track!

Man i'm stoked for this, never lived close enough for a track to get out there

Good choices with the Q3 and Optimum. Hopefully I can make this one too.

And we'll be at the track also, big silver trailer beside Registration and in front of Tech Inspection.
As an Optimum Performance Motorsports customer we'll assist you with suspension adjustments and tire pressure tweaks throughout the day.
If you're new to the track have you looked into our Level 1 School?
I guarantee that we'll teach you some things that will make you much more confident on the track, and you'll gain a lot of speed too.
E-mail Alan at OPRT to reserve a spot
