• What Are Track Day Flags And What Do They Mean?

    It is important to understand what the flags mean because it is the only way the marshals can communicate with you.  They keep you informed of any situation that has changed and make sure every rider is safe.

    1. Green Flag – This flag means what you are thinking it means – everything is A-OK.  Have fun and keep riding until something changes.

    2. Yellow Flag – Danger ahead! Slow down and do not pass other riders. Wait for the green flag to return back to normal.

    3. Red Flag – WATCH OUT and get off the track.  There is something on the track or an accident or incident that has or has a high probability of affecting you or other riders.

    4. Black Flag – Either there is something wrong with your bike that the marshall notices or you are driving or behaving inappropriately.  You do not want to cause danger to yourself or someone else on the track. Ge to the pit immediately.

    5. Red & Yellow Striped – The track has rain, or some kind of fluid on it. Be on the look out and slow down.

    6. Checkered Flag – This flag means return to the pits – your session is over.

  • Racing Vs. Track Day

    Many people will not attend a track day because they think it is a race.  It isn’t a race.  It is a way for you to spent time becoming a better rider.  It is a safe place to ride – who wants to get speeding tickets and points on your insurance or risk getting in an accident because most drivers do not pay attention to motorcycle riders.

    Most places offer classes so you can be coached if you ask for it.  You can do as fast as you want to go – that means as fast or as slow as you want.  Tracktime caters to the novice and the guru.

    Why try a track day?

    • Safest place to ride
    • Best place to refine your skills (braking and cornering)
    • A great place to meet new friends who are like you…into ridingl
