Dirty sliding TT goodness at Thunderhill

Thunderhill Raceway added a 60' wide half-mile TT track this spring. If you've never ridden TT, its like a road race on dirt with a 10x grin factor. Back it into ever corner and steer with the throttle on the way out. Add a jump or two for more fun. Haven't heard about open practice days yet but SupermotoUSA is racing on this track - all dirt, no pavement - on April 29th. SupermotoUSA classes and Class C traction (no knobbies).* Grab some racing rain tires (take-offs can be found pretty cheap) or borrow a tire groover cut up some slicks or street tires. If you have a dirt bike with traditional dirt wheel sizes, just use dual sport tires. Once you try TT, there is no going back.



* There may be one race for open traction at the end of the day.

Will there be TT trackdays for non-AMA licensed riders?

I don't know about open practices. Will ask. I don't believe an AMA membership is required for practice or racing at this track. In fact, I think only one SupermotoUSA race this year (Sturgis Buffalo Chip) is an AMA event. Have to confirm that.

No Open Practice days at the T-hill TT track are planned.

There will be a practice day on Saturday 4/28. SupermotoUSA races are on Sunday 4/29 so you could make a weekend of it.

I'm thinking of just running my stock rims 21/18..and getting whatever I can find to mount on them...I'm pretty good in the dirt and my new KTM has traction control. Any tire suggestions?

Shinko makes a dual sport tire that looks very much like a trials tire. They are cheap, come in some of the same sizes as knobbies and work really good in either cushion or blue groove conditions. I don't remember the model number for that tire. You may be able to run a knobby on the front for this event.
