Get some track time first. Check out www.nesba.com We will be at Pocono on Friday. Rain might screw us though. You can also check out www.ccsracing.com. www.wera.com There are mant track days at Pocono this year. You can even get a free trial w/ NESBA(Northeast Sportbike Association)

does anyone know any websites that give you info on entering the amatuer circuit. ie. taking your bike to a track and getting track time, to lessons, to actually racing. i live by the Pocono Raceway and i know they do it 2 times a year because i saw it on a website but like usual i cant find it again.
thanks

GCO, what he's saying is that you might want to take look at the "Club Racing and Track Days" forum. The website question may not have been asked yet, but lots of good relative information there.

lrrsracing.com racing at loudon, nh (i'd suugest a smaller bike for loudon than a 750). it's about 6 or 7 hours away, i haven't been there for some time. fun, tight curcuit.

wera.com and ccsracing.com racing at summit point, wv (fast, cool track, four hours away, lots of apples).

fastone.com (fasttrax roadracing series) races at nelson ledges, oh, don't know travel time, never been to track. they do endurance racing there.

in addition to nesba, www.teampromotion.com and www.reduc.com do track days at pocono. I belong to tpm. nesba is cool, but tpm has racer contingancy programs and i just like the things you can do with them (like one-on-one radio sessions and some other things). nesba visits some tracks that are supposed to be awesome though, that tpm doesn't go to.

anyway, chris should probably move this, will??

You should start by taking a roadracing school; it'll allow you to get a racing license with the sanctioning organization of your choice. Since you're by Pocono, you should know that Penguin Roadracing School is scheduled for a class at Pocono Intl. Spdwy. Sept. 19 this year. http://www.penguinracing.com/Schedule.html

I'm not sure if that particular scheduled class is the standard "Basic course" that get's you a license, since it's some sort of "street rider" variant. Otherwise, you can go to Loudon on Sept. 29 (their home track). You can get your racing license the same or next day, and then race the rest of the weekend either using your own bike or renting an EX500 from the Penguin school.

Since it's pretty late in the season, you can get your school(s) done this year, and that'll give you the Winter to prep a track bike and get yourself in good physical shape.

Just note that if for some reason you want to race in AFM events in the West coast area, AFM requires you take one of their schools first unless you've raced in at least 6 events on 6 separate dates in the club of which you're currently a member. Most other organizations, such as WERA, CCS, Formula, etc., offer "reciprocity licenses," so you won't have to take additional schools.

Hope to see you at the tracks next year.
