Need Help Locating A Track School in the D.C. Area
I'm looking to attend a track/racing school next month. I was looking at Summit Point's web page and didn't notice any schools scheduled. Dose anyone have a link to any tracks in the D.C. area that have track/racing schools.
kvpZX9R, how do you like Hollaman? I was stationed there from 1996 to 1998, I found that place to be a big sh!t hole, the only thing I liked out there was riding up the though Cloudcroft and drink in Mexico.

Hey - I'm from the DC area also (Fairfax). I couldn't find many schools around here. I am however going to attend the CLASS school at Pocono on Aug 5,6. That was the closest place I could find and its still about 3.5 hours away.

I hate that place. That's why I have "PCS Me" in my sig line. THe state has recently repaved the road from Cloudcroft to Sunspot. So now there's about a 25 mile stretch of perfect twisty road.
If you can man, PCS to RAF Lakenheath in England, it's sportbike heaven over there. There is sportbike everywhere over there I wish I could go back. I'm now at Andrews AFB, near D.C. and this is a bigger sh!t hole that Hollaman. The D.C. area has to be the worst place to live in the whole US.
VIR is the best track around, although kinda far from DC. Summit points Jefferson circuit is very busy and not very fun to ride. Its got alot of asphalt patches mid corner that dont give much confidence. Pocono is pretty bad too. I recommend renting a trailer and hauling ass down to VIR. Theres TONS of bike track days, either thru schools or NESBA.
I have to disagree, summit JC doent have any concrete patches, was there a week or so ago. its actaully a fun little track, very technical, sub 1 minute laps. You can have little slides going over the white lines but its nothing to worry about, a 3" slide that you hardly even feel. traction is very good there, and the main course has no problems either. There is a charity track day on the main course on august 21. You can sign up at www.nesba.com and you dont need to be a nesba member to get the cheaper price.
VIR is the best though,i have only done the south course will be doing the north next month.
