Im thinking of doing some track days, probably next year.
Been looking into the different ORGs out there. Found these, that operate at tracks somewhat close to me.
I imagine, most of you are familair with both of these.

http://www.nesba.com/

http://www.sullivanraceschool.com/

any info, or insight you guys can give me?

any other ORG's i should look into?

thanks
nevada

edit: im going to add the ORG's to this post. keep everything together, and easy to find.

I would suggest NESBA at Pacific Raceways, looks like a lot more fun at that track than PIR.

You might check into Sportbike Track Time (STT), I can vouch that their southeastern division is an excellent group of people.

Another perk with NESBA is that they have an alliance with Yamaha, and at certain events throughout the year you will get to sign up to demo Yamaha motorcycles. :D

STT is $35 bucks a year, and you get some sweet stickers and a T shirt. :lol:


If you do decide to join STT, wait until January, because regardless of how far into the year you buy your membership, you must renew at the beginning of each new year.

doesnt STT have tiered memberships? you can also run a day without being a member i believe right?


and the nesba memberships are good for one full year, i renew every january but the new membership doesnt start until my old one expires.

no close tracks tho :(
maybe, after ive done a few track days, id be up for traveling a bit further. but, i think for now, id like to stay somewhat close.

They sure do! I went to Barber back in May on one of their freebie days before I joined STT, and I was very impressed with the Control Riders, and the organization as a whole. You get free classroom instruction on rider technique and track tips in the Novice group as well. The guys in the southeastern division are awesome, I cant say enough good things about them.

The membership is cheap enough, thats for sure, as long as you remember to renew at the beginning of the year..................

i haven't done a track day yet but i've been doing a lot of research and talking to the track riders i know in my area. the say that for your first day STT can't be beat because they offer a lot more teaching and help in the classroom as well as on the track with the control riders. NESBA is supposed to be a little more for the serious track riders and they basically group you according to your skill level and send you out there. the CR's will help ya out if you ask them too but its more on your shoulders. i'll be doing an stt day next season once i have all the right gear. damn leathers are so expensive and none of the org's have the bigger sizes for rent :Laughing rolling:

:postwhorel::werd:


the control riders do an excellent job of picking you out and helping you if your in need, but its still sorta a do your own thing the first day type of deal. some of the other clubs provide/require more instruction for peeps that are new to track riding.

I have ran SST and privatetracktime.com and both were good. SST was very aimed at saftey which is great for beginners. They had like a 30min rider meeting which is needed for the beginners but boring for me. PTT was a bit more laid back but great for me.

My wife ran NESBA once this year and the CR that I met were nice and very helpfull and tech guys were on it but I have a bad tast in mouth do to a poor decision made by some of the NESBA people comming and racing with CCS at RA this year. They misrepresented the size of there motorcycle and was disqualified from middleweight races.
Here is a link to the CCS forum http://www.ccsforum.com/index.php/topic,20868.0.html
