Class for track day beginners at Thunderhill Raceway
Here is it. You’ve decided to do your first motorcycle track day ever. Rather you have or have not a track day ticket in your pocket- you are intimidated as hell. The respect for the big track and the unknown almost lifts out the excitement. You probably start out on C-Group, which is ok because there at least more rules to some kind of protect you. The upcoming ‘chaos’, which you even haven’t seen yet, is overwhelming you. We see this every day. Also, there is confusion about the entire procedure of entering an ‘gloves come off’ arena. This program is designed to help orientating- relaxing by doing- and to give you a safe as possible approach.
- Want to enter track days
- Have a few track days done but want to reset and learn
- All skill levels
- All categories of motorcycles
- Have essential skills to start track days safely
- Strive off intimidation
How It Works
We’re going into a lot. Literally all scenarios you are going to face doing track days, and we’ll prepare you for it. How to prepare you and your bike to make it through tech inspection and safely through the day. Gear, equipment and tons of tips for setup and tires. The registration and the importance of being in the right group. Flag signals and track etiquette. The before and during handling of your bike. How to mentally and physically prepare for the chaos you don’t even know yet. Passing and get passed, viewing and line prediction- and a lot more.
In-between all this, you’ll have plenty of track time to get use to the ‘demon’. Striving off that intimidate feel of being on a track, surrounded by riders who also signed the liability release form, and where rules are relative and bendable. Track days are often a ego driven world where the fastest dominates, and we want to prepare you for this.
Headcoach Can Akkaya knows what effects this might have on you and also all the situations you could get into, but he won’t go into actual riding elevating skill subjects, because you should know yourself if you are ready for track days or not. This is what our Cornering School program is good for. However, he’ll go into lines to make you- the rookie- more predictable and therefore safer. He’ll go into viewing to give you peace of mind. He’ll give you mental relaxation.
The Track We’re Using
The Thunderhill West Raceway is a perfect place to overcome those butterfly’s in your stomach. The pace on this track is moderate and the repeating frequency is high since this is a 2 miles track. Most importantly, we’re with you in air conditioned classroom and on the track. We teach you how to deal with all this mentally and physically. We also check on your riding abilities and see if you even should consider this yet- or to get you all right in our Cornering program. The sounds, the chaos, the atmosphere come in lower doses and this will have a ‘been there- done that’ effect on you. Besides… this track is heck of fun too.
… you are ready to do future track days either in B or B+ group. We highly recommend to graduate our Cornering School first though.
This class is a great way to get mentally and physically prepared for the Superbike-Coach Track Day!
