Track days are track school

I live in the SW corner of Michigan and was wondering if there was any track days or track schools around. I would be willing to travel. There is only so much you can do on public roads and I would like so feedback from professions to improve my skills. Any info would be helpful.

But if you want to get really good go to http://www.sportbiketracktime.com Most of the people due both agree that STT is way to go. Most of the Instuctors for Trackoholics are * BLEEP*. I was drug out by a few of my buddies to a trackday, and I walked into the tech shed to talk to a buddie and found the instructors making fun of the students because of how slow they were. I was not to happy due to my buddie being in the student group. But that's my 2 pennies.

careful with the trash talk.. or you'll find yourself being moderated.. if you want to air your negativity about personal feelings do it via pm's if you want to air an experience publically there are ways to be more diplomatic about expressing your dislike with someone's service
