    Anyone planning to go to EvolveGT events?


    First post, noobie trackday rider

    I moved to Boston from Philly a few months ago and started eyeing all the different orgs, planning to go to a handful of trackdays this year. I gotta say that EvolveGT has an attractive schedule with tracks all over the east coast (Palmer/NHMS/NYST/Pineview Run/Pocono/Pitt). A forum search for EvolveGT didn't bring up much; around these parts Tony's and Penguin seem to take the stage.

    Just wondering if there was an off chance that anyone here was an EvolveGT rider... and planning to go to a bunch of their events... and has extra trailer space... and lives near Boston

    The NHMS events are Penguin operated, EvolveGT is just buying spots so nothing different from any other Penguin day there.

    Would I understand that correctly to mean EvolveGT is simply a third party-type vendor? You pay them, they send you along to the likes of Penguin, etc.?

    For their NHMS dates, yes.

    It's pretty common practice for out of region trackday orgs to sell slots to another org's event. Penguin has done it with the guys in Jersey FWIW.

    At NYST Evolve got their own group IIRC, and ran with their own instructors. There were people mixed into the other groups as well though.

    I don't think that's really fair to say since they host the majority of their events themselves

    I'm pretty excited to try Pineview Run. I don't know of any other orgs that have events there. Although I hear it's a mixed bag since it's so small and technical. I ride a 300 so its okay

    easy. if it's not NHMS, the greatest track in the world, then this forum doesnt acknowledge it. NHMS, Penguin, and TTD are the only thing that exist in their eyes.

    It's just a regional thing like Absolute and N2.

    Almost all the trackday orgs have deals set up for members of other orgs. I seem to remember Absolute heading that up in this area initially as like a riders united thing.

    I think it's a positive thing. That way if you are already a member of one org, you don't have to buy another membership to do an occasional day out of your normal area.

    We have quite a few tracks in the northeast, now. Probably be worth getting a membership with penguin or ttd to get a deal on the local tracks and then do the occasional day with Evolve or absolute or N2 or nyst.
