Superbike-Coach Organizes One Track Day

…and guess what… we’re making it different. If you are looking for a ‘beginner oriented’ track day event, or if you have a touring bike and nobody else lets you on the track, or if you have a race bike, Superbike-Coach track days have something for everyone.

  • First time on the track- or touring/cruiser bikes (group C)

  • Intermediate riders- or street and sport bikes (group B)

  • Advanced riders- or sport and track bikes (group B+)

Our goal is to give you a non-competitive and most fun experience on a race track.

Why our track days are different

Over thousands of miles and over four decades of racing, riding, and teaching on track all over this planet, Coach Can has been seen all kinds of track day organizers: “Some were really OK, but most of them… geez, they aren’t even sticking to their own rules. That ain’t good for track newbies at all!

Our group level system is designed to open our track day to every rider skill level and motorcycle type. So for example, if you have a Gold Wing and you ever wanted to hit the track we’ll have a group for you, as well for the for the experienced track rider and his or her fully tricked out race bike. We don’t let a dozen “instructors” float around the track and race each other, and we are absolutely track newbie-oriented. It’s a no pressure atmosphere on our perfectly prepared track… because this is all about YOU!

All bikes welcome… less bike preparation… available to every rider & gear

We understand how painful it is to prepare a bike to meet someone’s track usage requirements, but our policy is totally on your page. Nothing needs to be done to your baby.  Same goes for our requirements in regard to gear. As long as you have street acceptable riding gear with all protectors in the right places (details) you are good to go. And hey, if you need to add some gear for this event, then Superbike-Coach also helps with huge discounts by our sponsors.

No school program this time, but…

Have lots of fun being on a big race track together with a MotoGP wild card ex-professional racer. German vice-champion Can Akkaya knows the line around the track best. He’ll zoom in front of you and invites you to follow him at your own (!) pace. Besides his appearance on the track, Coach will give a FREE seminar on various subjects, which is very entertaining as some already know.

Coach is a remarkable teacher, very impressive with his lifetime knowledge and feel of all of his life experiences riding and racing shared with his students in a 1 day, fun day event.- Mike Lawler, Cornering School Day 1

You won’t find more profound knowledge in both- riding and coaching. Coach Can will be around to answer all questions you may have, but he designed these track days mainly to have fun with each other while learning something new. Coach developed a family-like track day environment where hooligans won’t find a place, but like-minded people who know their priorities.

Optional bike adjustment support

At some of our track days we offer an optional bike setup support. This is a workshop which we run besides your track day. A small seminar by Headcoach Can Akkaya gives insights what to look for. We help you to make the right adjustments when you come back in after your track session, where you also learn to report. During the workshop and try/errors on the track, we will help you to setup your suspensions, individualize your lever adjustments, and give suggestions in regard geometry. Our technician will help with the right tools and mindset. So this is like the MotoGP garage scenario… just quite down a notch or two.

There is more that makes our track day different from others

Besides a team of professional track marshals and a fully-equipped emergency crew, we’ll have an air-conditioned club house ready for you to hang out, eat lunch, or listen to Coach’s free seminar. A highlight will be definitely our Superbike-Coach photographer Dean Lonskey, who will make thousands of FREE PICTURES of you and your track adventure with us.

The tracks we’re using

thunderhill-west-raceway-superbike-coachThunderhill West Raceway has 10 challenging turns on its 2 miles, and its short straights don’t give much relaxing time so that we go here in 3 level groups in 7×20 minutes sessions, also to keep the headcount low. This track is perfect for every rider level because of its characteristics.

little-99-raceway-superbike-coachLittle 99 Raceway comes with 13 turns on a mile, which makes it extremely challenging. If you can handle this one… you can handle every big track or canyon. The little 99 is a great place to get use to a track day environment. We run our track days here on 4 level groups in 12×12 minutes sessions, which is a lot.

thunderhill-east-superbike-coachThunderhill East Raceway is the more ‘expert’ level track because of its high speed sections and tricky lines. The braking travels are demanding on this 3 mile track with its 15 turns. We organize 3 level groups track days here with 7×20 minutes sessions. The secret of this track is the line, and who could show you this better than Coach?!

The admission fee is depending on the track- as well as the headcount per group and the amount of time per session. Our goal is it to keep the headcount low within the groups, and to set safety higher. At some track days, we offer an optional ‘Bike Adjustment Support’ which is very helpful for all types of bikes and rider levels.
