Track Day

My son is 11 and wants to start riding. He has an Honda NSR50 stock, no mods. We would like to start riding on the track so if anyone knows a place he can ride with other minis please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Theres a track in the Tri cities area, in Wash. that does mini motard racing...cant recall the name of it, and not sure of the age limits, but that may be an option.

I am in the same boat. I would like my 12 year old to come do track days with me.

Check with the different track day orgs, have them look up what their insurance covers as far as a minimum age.

So I have been thinking about this and getting everything set up to do it with my 10 year old son.

Leathers, helmet, gloves, boots & back protector. I was planning to bring him with me to ORP since it is not a super fast track (sub 130).

Now I have begun to reconsider....
I was shaking down the bike after doing track day upgrades. Running down the front straightaway in 4th gear and my front brake blew the bleeder screw. No brakes, 130+ mph, concrete wall, and a turn coming up...

Hairy situation, that I somehow kept the bike upright and in one piece. But, if my kid was on the back, it could have been much worse. So, Ill probably be keeping it a little more tame and in the C group when I have him on the back.

Safe riding all.
