Private Trackdays

839 Views 17 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  John
Someone had to make the move .. here's the scoop:

We will organize anywhere from 4 and up track days at the new track in Reno this year. The word is Reno still has open weekend days for taking. THE NUMBER OF DAYS WE WILL BOOK WILL DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF DEDICATED PEOPLE WE CAN COUNT ON. Definition of dedicated: will put out some money upfront which they will (probably) loose if they don't make it to the track.

Martin (motowheels) was generous enough to offer to sponsor these events if there is enough interest and other people step up and help with organizing and getting other riders to show up. UNLIKE other organized track days we are not looking to make any $$ off of you. Therefore, getting more people to come will not only ensure that we continue doing this, but it will also drop the cost for you and your friends. Here's the math:

Track day ~ $4,000/day (20 riders and under)
20 riders ~ $200/person
40 riders ~ $150/person (It will require more corner guards and ambulance trucks to pay for, so the day is more expensive.)

$150 for a private open track day is a great deal. For anyone that never did a private day - it is the most fun you will ever have on your bike - even if you crash, you'll be among friends to help you get home, get you beers to drink while we finish the day, maybe some good drugs and certainly make fun of you after we stop feeling bad and know that you are okay.

Getting 20 DEDICATED people (on and off this board) will get the ball rolling. I need a "show" of hands. Post your questions, comments, remarks. Let us know how many days you can sign up for up-front. We need to act fast before all the good days are booked. We'll give you one week to ponder and reply, then we are making reservations.

Riders that step up now will not only have priority, but will also be the ones to share any left over $$ after all the dues are paid and drop the cost for themselves even further.

Word!

Sorry John , I've been out of touch with Martin for almost 24 hours now.

Still .. what I wrote stands. Let me know who's in (like 1999r1nomore did) and as you can see people are already working on it. Regardless of where we are with booking the dates we need to know how many interested. Even if make it out on weekdays to T-hill or Reno, WE ARE doing something this year (and more next year), so lets make it cheap for everyone.

John has really nothing to do but bug these people and (let me tell you) if he's on you, you will sooner or later say "goddamnit, FINE - HAVE IT!"
Dude can't even ride and he's on it already. See what I'm saying - we have people here that define the word "enthusiasts." We're in it for that grin under the helmet, so give us a hand (or I'll have John call you.) :D

Oh .. it's past 10 .. John is in bed already ..

John, Vinnie and everyone else, I'm planning on going to motowheels w/ my credit card in the AM and installing parts the rest of the day tomorrow. If anyone wants to come over, sip beers and watch me get greasy, come over. Shit, enough people and I'll throw a party. PM me for addy (a mile from Bradshaw & 50)


(hey scott .. sorry, pg-13 not working out ;)

I see lots of other open dates on Reno website .. are they really open John?

I'm for going to Reno for the whole weekend. Since we're already trucking there. So-Cal guys would be better off too. If they have someone to ship their bikes, plane tickets to Reno are cheap.
If picking one day, I'm for T-Hill. Close by.
