how many people did their first trackday this year ...

... and how many plan on doing more next year ???

and on the flip how many people stopped riding the track this year and why?

im just wondering how many new people got hooked on the track bug this year compared to the number of people who just stopped doing it.

i did my first this year @ gss and was hooked real fast. I did a total of 5 this year and plan on doing a TON more

First this year, then 4 more as time allowed. Might squeeze in one or two more if I can. I'm sure plenty more next year as I'm working to get my extra set of rims setup with some BT002's as my PP 2ct's are starting to step out on me pretty consistently. Powdercoating them first, still gotta have some bling playa.

Ha! me too except I've done 10 or 11, I've lost track. I'll be back next year for sure. I may even race once or twice.
I only wish I'd started sooner.

Did my first TD at a LMS noob day, and have done 5 more since then. Since then I've quit the streets, and ride track only. I plan on getting more track time next year too.

First track day this year at TWS (Texas World Speedway) with 5 down so far. One more at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and then maybe Harris Hill Road in November. Quit the streets after TD #2 and sold the street bike. Plan is to do 2 or 3 (depending on schedule) per month next year.
(Oh and still looking for a cheap mini for TMGP ).
