Come out and support Bakersfield's only trackday organization, www.letsridetrackdays.com
The cost is only $175, really good for a saturday event at Buttonwillow. If you get a group of 8 to sign up together then it is only $160.
See you at the track

:iagree::iagree:

I haven't heard one bad thing said about TH. Everyone that's been there said that it's one of the best tracks that they've been on. Everyone says TH rocks. I agree.

I get different opinions on BW and RenoFernley from different guys. Which is okay to have different opinions.

But it just seems that TH seems to be universally consistently agreed by many as a good track.

Hey T, does Infineon care about excessive loud pipes like Laguan Seca? If not, how expensive is an Infineon track day?

There is a sound limit but it is higher than Laguna's.

One guy got busted for sound yesterday but he was running Laser shorties. They looked like open pipes. It can be confusing because some aftermarkets won't sound as loud as a V4 but the V4 will pass with stock pipes and GSXR with an aftermarket won't. From what I understand the V4 creates induction noise and doesn't carry the same Db to the sound booth as do the aftermarket pipes.

Other than the guy yesterday I've never heard of anyone having any problems with aftermarket pipes getting the meatball flag.

R6's have been known to be flagged at Laguna with stock pipes.

Sears Point Infineon trackdays can be anywhere from $260 to $330.

It is the funnest track for 250 smokers, sv650's and 600I4's since it is like a roller coaster ride. :) But it is not very forgiving to liter bikes that like to highside at the exit of about 3 of the corners. I have personally came around T2 into a bike cartwheeling down the track and having to decide which side it will flip too as I try to get passed the explosion of debris. I guessed correctly on the bike but the rider jumped up and ran right in front of me. :eek: Thank God I was able to avoid hitting him.

My bad, according to Sports Rider they were running 1.07's and 1.08's not 1.20's! It doesn't say what config they are running but the pic of the course looks alot like the one we ran the first time. It's in this months Sport Rider maybe someone can shed some light on exactly what config they are running.

Don't know, but I think the A guys at my last TD were running sub 2 minute, but not as low as almost a minute. I'm guessing Sport Rider ran a shorter loop as suggested.

Yep, $15 off so it will only be $150 for a saturday trackday, which is good IMO. Also, we give out goodie bags and raffle off free stuff at the riders meeting, like repsol products and free trackdays.

Yes, the track is a hoot!
125mph max in 2 places if you are pushing real hard, I could only muster up 120mph bouncing on the limiter
Average lap speed about 75 to 80 mph - depending
13 turns on 1.7 miles with some elevation change
"The Bowl" 20 deg banked "U" turn

Ask Poach (Chris) about the track, he knows it best.

I drove by this tow yard yesterday and saw this black bike with a FOR SALE sign on it. Bust a quick U turn and went back to check it out.

Long story short..I was a little too late..some dude just bought it for $800..Black 08 Ninja 650R with just a few hundred miles on it..with front plastic/lights and tank damage..I offered him $1K for it for a quick $200 profit but he said he'll think about it so I gave him my number..lastnight he called and said I can have it for $1300. I said no. I only have $1k, call me back when you really wanna sell it...

so I'm crossing my fingers....if I have too, I'll give him $1100 for it..

Like others said, go in C group to learn the track, flags and overall procedures. Later in the day you can always bump up to B group if you feel that you are having to make too many passes and too many slow riders are holding you up, which can be unsafe. THe key is to have fun and improve your riding skills.

$10 weekend gate fee, but other than that the pits are all open, and there is a cool viewing tower you can stand on to watch the track.
I will be there working the grid in the morning and playing in the afternoon, I have red hair and a red goatee and I kinda stand out from your normal sized rider, so come up and say Hi and introduce yourself.

this sucks :( i should have been there! worst timing ever haha

It was nice to meet some of you guys. Thank you for coming out and riding with us. Next time I will try to find more time to play, I was worn out from working tech and the grid all morning, by the time the afternoon came around it was so damn hot I didn't even want to ride. I even skipped the race at willow today, I got too much sun yesterday and was sick last night.
Up in Smoke, a big thanks for the gear for my son, he hasnt taken it off and wore it today when he rode, fits really good. Hope to see you guys at the track again.

You saw that too....Well in his defense it was the last session of the day. It was 105 out there and we were absolutely drained by the end of the day.
