Hi Alan and JD,
I wanted to take the time to say thanks again for hosting a great track day last Monday, as well as pass along some feedback on my instructor , Tom. I learned a ton from him over the course of the day, and thanks to his instruction by the last session I was going a lot faster and felt a lot more confident on the bike. The debriefs after each session were very valuable, and gave me 1 or 2 points to focus on for the next session. By the end I was able to put it all together into a really fantastic final session.
I cant wait to do another day with you guys, my wife and I are going to sign up for the August 5th and 6th 2-day track day!
Thanks again. and see you soon!
I first heard about Track Time through a Roadracing World Facebook post about Ken Hill being a quest instructor at Track Time track days. At the time I had just started listening to Ken Hill’s podcast and what he was saying in his podcasts made since to me. When I visited Track Time’s website, and read that they have less riders in a group at slightly higher price, with Ken Hill classroom instruction, I had to sign up.
I signed up for a full day of instruction. Joe was my instructor and Ken Hill was doing classroom sessions throughout the day. I told Joe that the only thing I wanted to do, was get my knee on the ground, but after the first session, Joe noticed that I need to work on my vision and focus, first. This is the same thing Ken Hill says in his podcasts. The instruction at Track Time was consistent. Joe and I worked on my eyes and focus all day, because that is what I needed to work on the most. Towards the end of the day I was cornering a lot faster than I have ever done before. No, I didn’t get my knee on the ground, but I worked on what was most important in my progression of being a better rider.
Track Time compared to other local track days is not a track day filled with traffic, nor a track day where you are rushed from the track to the classroom and back, to work on things that are insignificant to you becoming a better rider.
Guys, I just wanted to say that it was the best track day I've ever experienced. I was able to work on skills and get help during the day and was also able to just have some fun on the track. Looking back I see that I had none of the negative experiences like dealing with some hot dogger cutting me off in a race maneuver or having so many bikes around I could only ride around the track practicing avoidance techniques. It was a great day and free of other than self-induced "oh shit" moments. I loved it,
keep on doing this and you will provide great opportunities for riders to gain experience in a safe environment.
A top organization. Lots of space on track, lots of great instructors. A perfect track day provider.
I spent the last two days at the Ridge with you guys. I have spent many days there over the last 5 years with Motofit and 2Fast, OPRT and had not done any of your days due to the price. I was really impressed with the days and the limited numbers, well worth the extra money. You should make sure that is clear on your website because I wasn’t aware that you didn’t over book the track.
The dinner was a nice touch too and a good way to get people together.
Thanks again for a great track day, best day ever!!
This was my first day at the Ridge and Track Time made it the most memorable one by far. Organization and execution were brilliant and I will be back next season.
WOW. Alan and JD, I am impressed! Best track day operation I have experienced. Moaka is a great coach, worked my butt off. Nothing but thanks.
What a wonderful track day! I love how you cap the number of riders per group. So many people complimented you organizing that. Super satisfaction no complaints and people are already talking about September"s track day. kudos!!
I didn't get a chance to personally thank you for Monday's event at The Ridge. Our guys had a really great time! TroyBoy rode with us a lot and gave us some really helpful advice. He's a good instructor.
These are the only track events I would consider doing.
keep up the great work!
I can vouch for an awesome organization!
The smaller groups are definitely worth the very small premium in price. I hope others find this true as well! Anyone who rides motorcycles....any kind of motorcycles, take advantage of this and learn how to be a better and safer rider.
Hi Alan and JD,
On the topic of instruction, I meant to write you some feedback about our last track day. Marcello was my instructor for the June 18th track day, and he was amazing! I started the day as arguably the slowest and most timid rider on the track, but ended the day feeling much more confident in my ability to negotiate a corner effectively. Marcello was exceptionally patient, and explained the concepts of body position, corner apex, and braking on the bike very clearly.
A hot lap on the back of his bike was one of the scariest and most humbling experiences I've had in ages. It quickly put into perspective how much I was under riding my bike! This was the catalyst to improving my confidence and trust in my bike's ability to get through a corner. All to say it was an excellent day and I'm officially hooked!
Thanks again for a great event! See you at the track.
