I'm pretty sure Fastline requires at least one td and RideSmart requires one td and two cw days.

Sorry, no one requires corner working prior to track days. Only to get your race lic. for the CMRA.

You could also post up that you are looking to borrow some gear to get on the track. Most people would let you borrow to get your first one out of the way.

If you really suck you could just show up to the trackday and moch water, shade and gas off of everyone there. But dont do that. I have that area covered and we dont need two of us out there.
Just accept that the cheapest way for a first timer to get on the track is with Ride Smart, John.

It aint personal.

Who wants to spend 12+ hours working a corner when you can ride for $65 your first time. I'd argue that $65 IS cheaper than 12 hours of work.

Pretty sure you misunderstood me. I was saying that they require track days and or corner working days before you can corner work. Not before you can do a track day.

well there is cheap, and then there is cheap...
the best trackday experience you can have is racing TMGP. That is the most fun you can have for your money period, bar none...ooops.. back to trackday start up costs.

I can tell you that i would send someone your way for a really cheap trackday. But if they did not have the 65 bucks i would tell them to try corner working or even have someone else corner work for them while they ride. I win. Dont hate because you spend more money than I do.


Can I some gas and tires from you at the next day?
