Due to being winter, nothing on schedule. If you have a FB acct, join West Coast Mini Grand Prix for active chatter.

Or .....

- call and inquire with Allen if he or knows others that may / will be at the track on a day you have in mind.

- hook up with a member (anytime access).

- become a member

I've been checking the Stockton Lil 99 FB but I myself don't have an account.

And I actually want to become a member of the track, I just want to do a few track days before I commit.



Any track members on here want to tow me around?

A great starter video, if you had not seen it already, Keith Codes Twist of the Wrist II. You can find it on YouTube. Fundamentally for track, but applies to street riding as well.

Otherwise, when you get to the track, inquire with Allen. He may point you out to someone to give you a tow around the track, and getting familiar. If this is your first time out, don't worry about going fast. Learn the layout, braking, acceleration and shifting points.

Safety for all, choose a consistent line throughout the coarse, be predictable, so that faster riders can observe / interpret your intentions, to getting around you safely. As you get more comfortable and confident, speed follows. Focus on being relaxed and have fun. Progression is key

<edit> here is some useful info, for those new to attending a Mini-moto Track Day General Mini-Moto Track Day Info

Thanks for the tips. I actually read Twist of the Wrist and watched the video a few years back.
I plant to just learn the track, and get comfortable with the environment. I hope I'm not just an obstacle on the course for others..

Thanks again!

Folks,

Due to Stay At Home mandate, both Stockton and Dixon has announced track closures. I have not heard anything about Infineon. But, I imagine it will be closed too. Once the mandate has been lifted, I will update accordingly.

Be Safe and be Healthy, everyone!
