What would U like to see at the track?

I am curious to know what any given sportbike rider would like to see at a track day event. I've been to a few &, for the most part, the hosting organizations have covered everything from good corner workers to effective emergency responce & little perks here & there.

Some of the issues I've had are prices, time on the track, & having to deal with the folks that complain about everyone on the track holding them up. (I think they just need a )

What about you? Even if you've never been on a track but have thought about it, what would you like to see?

I've never been...but when I do I'd like a bit of instruction from my flaws and evaluation of what I'm doing out there.

The only thing we regularly discuss is the areas of the track that need to be resurfaced. But I heard they just repaved about 1/3 of the track, so I am looking forward to getting out there again. Our local track is very well run, so not a lot of complaints!

Last session of the day becomes a open 10 lap dash with 1st prize - free track day!

Sounds like they just need to learn how to pass!

I love the open sessions. Go out whenever and however long you want. And catering is a big plus too.

I'm your huckleberry!

I would like to see some door prizes or giveaways, that would be cool. A reputable expert racer should be able to pick up some coin for lessons, maybe $20 per session/hr of instruction.

But in the real world I would just settle for a trouble and delay free day.

I've never been to an event run this way. Sounds interesting. I agree with the catering. TrackExperience does a great job with that!

I would mainly like to see good instruction; I haven't been but my main thing would be someone observing my riding and critiquing my form. I also would want lots of track time I would be willing to pay more for less people and more time on the track.

Smiley, since you're close to Hallett it might interest you to know that I have seen both door prizes and raffles there for some nice gear. Also, you have to pay an extra $20 to ride in the novice class because you are riding with instructors who offer help and/or constructive criticism.

That sounds sweet! Can't wait to get my bike and get some miles on it.

Yeah but I have to have the advanced instruction. Sam McDonald and a couple others that attend regularly will do it. Sam's time is expensive, others will do it for free...I can't wait to get back to Hallett! New asphalt is calling!

Oh yeah and some naked women at the track would be cool...
