Below is some information about our big 2 day event coming up at NJMP. We are looking forward to some great track time and the opportunity to use our new video program to help create the best possible learning experience for our riders. We've got a great staff coming, including Eric Bostrom (who was great the last time we had him up ). Get a crew together, trailer the bikes down and get ready for a great weekend!

Together with Eboz, the Penguin School is working to bring you a track experience opportunity unlike any other. Join the nation's best instructional staff with handpicked professionals just for this event. Here are few of the special guests we have had in the past for this event. We expect a great crew for 2013!

Event Format
The two days of this event will have a slightly different format. There is an opportunity for a tremendous amount of track time and growth in your riding. Riders may select to participate in any combination of the two days. A brief summary is as follows:

Day 1 - Saturday September 21: Ride with the Stars at NJMP. The first day of this event is 100% pure Penguin School action. We will have our full core of instructors, including all of our special guests, to give our students the full Penguin Riding Experience. Students will have lots of track time, interface with the AMA stars on a number of riding topics, track walks, instructor deomonstration sessions, hands on drills in the pit area, industry vendors, a full catered lunch....everything you need to have a perfect day at the track!

Day 2 - Sunday September 22: Ride with the Stars Day 2. This event will be an extension of the classrooms from day 1, delving deeper into topics and allowing for some real one on one interaction. Penguin students will comprise about half of the overall rider population, as this event will be run in conjunction with a Team Pro Motion track day at NJMP on this Sunday event. Penguin participants will ride in the experience group that they belong and will have full access to our staff all day. We will have the opportunity for individual rider feedback both from on track observation and in depth rider photo analysis. Penguin students will have a catered lunch avaialable, complete with the interviews and interaction with the AMA stars.
Day 2 (optional) - Riders may elect to participate in the TPM track day only for a reduced rate.

Sunday in conjunction with TPM


The Penguin Experience:
This unique experience combines the safe, comfortable environment of a track day together with the opportunity for top shelf instruction and individual attention. Our two riding groups will have passing specific passing restrictions that will give every rider a comfortable place to enjoy one of these great race tracks.

If you've ever had the desire to explore the capabilities of your machine - this is the place to do it! Our head instructors are all former AMA Superbike racers who will cover topics like line selection, corner strategy, braking techniques, corner speed analysis, body position, bike setup & more. You may participate in as many or as few of the classrooms as you like. There will also be the opportunity to mingle with world class motorcycle personalities.

We are planning dinner available for all participants for a $25 fee on Saturday night. This will include interviews with our celebrity instructors, Q & A sessions for all riders, and we also hope to have video and photo from the day to share with everyone. With a student photo analysis, body position seminars, and the opportunity to share the track with AMA pros...this event will be a truly unforgettable experience both on and off the track.

Space is limited, and signup is available through either the Penguin School or a participating dealer. To register, either visit the registration page on this site or become a part of a dealer group from our participating shops. We would like to thank our friends at Ducati North America for their help in putting this event together.

We've got a cool new option for riders who want to capture the day on film....we have Go Pro Cameras that you can rent for $50, and the rental fee includes a 16GB SD card that you take with you when you go home. The other cool part about this program is that if you bring a laptop to the track to replay the footage, we can have coaches go over the tape with you and use is as a very valuable learning tool. Plus, 100% of the rental fee can be applied to the discounted purchase of the camera!

EBoz is all booked and ready to go. This should be a great event. For anyone who has been before, we've got a new format for this day that has us out riding earlier in the day and then all groups get to participate in our track walks at noontime. These walks get great reviews and will have even more meaning after you've been out to ride for a few sessions.

As a result, we've changed our usual lunchtime buffet for a full dinner in the Officer's Club (right there in the Thunderbolt pits) that will feature multi-course entrees, participant giveaways, interviews, and (perhaps the most fun) live footage of out riders from earlier in the day. It should be a great time!
