OPRT @ The Ridge Sunday September 10, 2017

We're adding another day! For $199 come on out Sunday September 10th!


Facebook event link HERE

Registration link HERE

What's a track day? A track day is when we rent out a race track for the day and sell you a spot to come ride on it. We split up our riders into 3 groups, beginner, intermediate, advanced. Before you let your pride put you in the wrong group, beginner just means at the track, your 15 years of ripping on the street doesn't count here so cool it. Pride at the track leads to ambulance rides. We also can move you throughout the day group to group if there's space, if it's too fast, we can move you down a group, or if you're too fast, we can move you up.

During the sessions, we have blue vested control riders riding around watching everything and everyone, they respond to any incidents, help riders with lines if they need help, etc. We also have orange vested instructors on track, and they'll be leading around students in green vests. They're taking the schools we offer and getting on track instruction and feedback from our fantastic and well experienced instructors.

We limit our groups to 40 riders max per group. We do this for safety and fun for everyone, there's more open track for you to ride around on.

We ride the track in 20 minute increments, group 3 rides at 9am, group 2 at 920, group 3 at 940, then repeats throughout the day. So you get 20 minute rides on the track every hour. It may not sound like much but, you'll be nice and sore sooner than you think

The track is a great place to learn to ride your motorcycle. Fast, slow, street bike, sport bike, cruiser or adventure. It's where you can learn to brake, corner, body position, accelerate, safely without speed limits, cops, cars, kids, potholes etc. The skills you learn at the track directly correlate with your safety and fun on the street.

We also offer schools for level 1 and level 2 that are great at laying down basic fundamentals and then build upon them. It's a great way to refresh on riding techniques, and also learn something new.

We have some rules, you gotta wear gear, over the ankle boots, gloves, a helmet that hasn't been crashed in before, and a leather or textile suit, 1 piece or 2 piece but it has to zip together. Your motorcycle has to pass a technical inspection. In the morning you register, then take your bike through tech and we give it a once over making sure your bike is in good running order.

We have vendors and sponsors at the track to provide you with things like tires, suspension services, bike demos from dealers, etc.

There's a lot that goes into a track day but it's 100% worth it. If you have questions, please ask as we're here to help!

Nice! I'll sign up for this one based on how the 24th goes.

Looks like 2Fast is supposed to be running a track day there too. How does that work? I assume they let a day go?

It is now an OPRT day. Not sure why the others haven't updated their websites yet.

hey jared, a couple friends and I are looking to registered for this track day. We are concerned about the weather though. How quickly do these days normally fill up? would it be unwise to wait till about a week before to register?

Bah, weather??
We're on the track during a Solar Eclipse this Monday.

Plus riding in crap weather makes for epic tales,

Who here remembers the April snow storm Adrenaline Freaks track day, and WMRRA race, 2005ish? Everyone in attendance still uses that one as a benchmark for badass

A more serious answer to your question, it can depend on what level you ride, Level 2 fills early, Level 1 just behind that....Level 3 (fast group) will usually fill slower.

Please pick up that available (?) date on the 11th, too.

A buddy and I just agreed that the 11th is our next track day, but evidently 2Fast is having trouble.

OBTW, The Ridge still shows the 10th as 2Fast on their calendar.

I'll be there but riding will be dependent on the weather. I don't want my Honda getting dirty.

No cut off time. The gate will be open all night.

Are there any restriction on showing up during the other track day event?
Not usually. But depending on the time you arrive, you may have to wait for people to leave if you want a specific pit spot.

Is there a fee to camp?
No

Will there be smores?
Yep, when you bring them!
