• Track Time in Southern California

    So, what do you get a guy who has everything.  My husband’s birthday was rolling around and I was once again daydreaming what wonderful thing I could come up with this year.  One of my friends suggested the Exotic Racing School in Los Angeles.

    What man doesn’t want an adventure driving a fast car?  I called them and what do you know they had gift certificates.  I picked a package that would allow him to drive any car in their fleet.  Porsche 991 GT3, the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lambo, Corvette ZO6, and more.

    The day came and he had the time of his life. He received instructions from pro races so he would know just how to drive each car like it was supposed to be driven. I would recommend this gift to anyone.

    What a fun day!  Until….. we got home.  I had just gotten new carpet put in the house about 6 months ago.  I was grabbing everything from the car and noticed little footprints all over my carpet when I got home. I was so upset!  My daughter had gotten into something at the track and now it was all over my new carpet.  Thank goodness I found Laguna Niguel Carpet Cleaning Service. They came right away. Explained exactly how they were going to get the stains out and they did.

    So glad that our dirty carpets didn’t ruin my husbands fabulous day at the track.

  • Speedways in South Orange County

    Our family is really into motor and sports racing of all sorts. So my husband took our son to the Speedway in Costa Mesa, CA. The speedway is an offroad motorcross event where they ride a special type of 500cc motorcycle that is capable of going from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds. This racing event is considered one of Orange County’s best kept secrets and was the first location to hold the national championships back in 1969.

    My son said it was one of the most exciting events he has ever been to and now wants to race his bike too. As a mother, I always get a tad scared of injuries but if he wants to race, I will definitely support that. So, of course, I had to tag along the next time they went. I didn’t really expect to enjoy it but to my surprise, I loved it. The racing was so fast; I was never bored. The event also had freestyle jumpers, chopper races and some other wild racing.  It is definitely worth attending at least once in your life.

    My son is hooked and now he and my husband will be off on racing weekends for as long as they live! Maybe I’ll learn how to ride one of these? Stay tuned….

  • 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. Track time is for 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
