Track Day Overview

Read on for information on our typical track day, our various formats, and our additional instruction options!


Standard Track Days

  • Riders at standard events are split into three groups - Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced.
  • A typical 3-group standard day will find you enjoying 140-160 miles of track time.
  • Each group receives one (1) 20-minute session per hour and typically there are seven rotations.
  • All events on the STT Schedule are Three Group format unless noted otherwise.


Limited Endurance "LED" Track Days

  • Riders at a LED event are split into two groups: Intermediate and Advanced.
  • At a typical 2-group LED day, you will receive 30-minute sessions every hour and log approximately 200-260 miles of total track time.
  • NOTE: The LED format is exclusively for experienced Intermediate and Advanced group riders.


Race Certificate Classes

At specific track days, riders can sign up for a Race Certificate Class for the potential to earn a race certificate.  Race certificates are then presented to the racing organization of your choice during application for a license.

    • This add-on offers classroom style instruction between track sessions and ends with a written test.  Don't worry, this won't compromise your time on the track!
    • This class also includes a riding evaluation and race start practices.
    • Race Certificate Classes cost $125 in addition to your track time registration.
    • NOTE:  This class is only available to Intermediate and Advanced riders.  Taking this class does not guarantee issuance of a race certificate.


    1:1 Instruction

    Team up with one of our coaches all day long and work towards your riding goals with personalized instruction!

    • 1:1 Instruction costs $125 in addition to your track time registration.
    • NOTE:  1:1 Instruction is only available to Intermediate and Advanced riders unless arranged with the office in advance.
    • Limited space is available; if you are interested in 1:1 Instruction but do not see it available on the site, please email the office with your request and we will strive to accommodate you!


    2-Up Session

    Grab your passenger and share the joy of the track for one session!

    • This session is incorporated into the last Novice session of the day.
    • All 2-up riders and passengers must have the proper gear and adhere to the Novice rules.
    • NOTE:  Participation is strictly limited to ensure a quality experience.  While we strive to allow this session at every event, it is not guaranteed.


    STT's Typical Schedule

    Exact times vary by event and venue.


    7:00 AM - Gates Open

    Enter the track and sign the venue's liability waiver at the gate.

    7:15 AM - Michelin Tire Service Opens

    Purchase new Slicks, Dot Race, or Pilot Sport tires for your bike. Since we are a distributor, STT member prices are the lowest around -- guaranteed.

    7:00 AM to 8:15 AM - Registration & Tech Inspection

    Meet us at the registration area to check-in and be assigned to a riding group. Turn in your liability waiver and any last minute paperwork to us, get your bike, and proceed to the clearly marked tech inspection area. Get your inspection sticker and enjoy some fresh fruit, donuts, or a sweet bun. Talk with the staff photographer about getting some good shots, or maybe talk with the tire service about putting on some fresh tires during your riding day. DO NOT FORGET to check your tire pressures since settings for the track will differ from street settings.

    8:20 AM - Mandatory Rider's Meeting

    This meeting is mandatory for all riders. We will brief you on the track conditions, general rules, flags, and a recap of safe track entry and exit. We introduce our instructors so you can pick them out. Immediately following the rider's meeting, all Novice group riders will have a mandatory meeting with our instructors for more in depth instruction.

    9:00 AM - On-Track Sessions Begin

    The sessions will rotate in order of Intermediate, Advanced, and Novice. During each session, those riding in the next session should gear up and be ready at the marked grid entry at least five minutes prior to the start of their session.

    12:00 PM - Lunch Break

    1:00 PM - On-Track Sessions Resume

    The sessions will rotate in order of Intermediate, Advanced, and Novice. During each session, those riding in the next session should gear up and be ready at the marked grid entry at least five minutes prior to the start of their session.

    5:00 PM - End of Day

    It's time to pack up and head home, or better yet camp at the track (where available) or a nearby hotel where you drop your gear and meet us for dinner where you can hang out with our team, have some fun, and get ready for the next day of riding!
