First things first. Use the search function.

"track day"

"first track day"

go to track day organizers websites, lots of info there. Each one is a little different, but it's easy to see what you'll need with a little research. Then just sign up and go.

In my opinion the best way to get into racing is TMGP. You won't break the bank, and the grids are full of friendly and talented riders. You can do a whole season for less than 1k, minus the bike. Everything you learn on a mini translates over to big bikes. look in the mini/motard section, I have a tmgp for noobs meet this Saturday.
