    Flattrack school day


    I'm trying to whip together a flattrack school day at OVRP possibly on Nov 17th. Instructor/host is PJ Jacobson (World Superbike racer). We did it last year and had a blast. Need a bike with rains or flattrack tires. Minis are fine. I'll be on Kerry's 150. Cost depends on number of participants. somewhere near 150rings a bell from last year . probably ride from 10:30 til dark. I only have a few people on board right now. 6-12 would be the ideal. Let me know if you want in!

    Ping Ben Gloddy as I bet he'll be in and can get some others interested if you need more numbers.

    Re: Flattrack school day

    I’d be in if it were Sunday. Have plans with the wife and I’d like to stay married........until at least I win the lottery.

    I’m really looking for something like this too. Great Idea Paul.

    Somewhere around 150. I can't remember exactly, but it was a bargain.

    Have always wanted to try flat track. I have a 2018 kx450. Anybody have a flat track set up? Or know what I would need to be able to participate?

    A 450 is a handful to learn on, but you would need 17in wheels with roadrace rain tires on them.

    Cool. We are not flattrack racers, so your buddy knows. We are roadracers that cross train a bit.

    Perfect. Put him in touch. I need to get a solid head count to make this happen. People who hesitated and bailed were bummed to miss it last year. It was so much fun. We rode a bunch of drills that were challenging and fun. Turned a ton of laps on a perfect track, and did a fun race at the end of the day.

    Re: Flattrack school day

    I mean, just for the day could I get away with throwing a set of dt3's on my stock size rims and giving it a go?

    I don't know what a DT3 is, but yes, any dual sport tire should be fine. What bike?

    DT3s are Dunlop's 19in Flat Track tire.

    Yes. 2018 kx450f. Has 19" rear stock rim. So I could just slap a tie on that and go, for the front it's a 21" so I'll have to search around and see what I can find. Worst case I buy a 19" rim. I'd also like to get set up for Ice racing so I'll have to do some research on popular tire/rim combos.

    Re: Flattrack school day

    Ah, Ok, yeah. For ice you will use the 21 in front. I'd just get some kind of 21in DS tire for occasional flattrack. Nothing too aggressive. Some actual FT racers would likely know what is good.
