    Question Track day question


    Am I really going to need to bring an extra tank of gas with me?

    How many laps do you usually get to do?

    I wouldn't think I'd get in even 100 miles, so I'd be fine if I filled up on my way to the track.

    Since I don't have a trailer, etc.. carrying a gas tank on the back of my bike, even empty, just seems like a great way to get pulled over by the police.

    Track day question

    I think you can get gas there, but it's race gas?

    My first track day I did 145 miles on the track...and on my bike at full-out-throttle (cuz I'm a nut when there's no speed limit or cops), works out to almost 2 tanks of gas. I'd see about whether gas will be available there or not. There's a gas station about 1/2 mile down 106, a big Texaco...fill up there before you go in to the track, and you should be all set. Fill up on your way out and you're good to go.

    The gas they sell there is race gas (105 octane). It's $5.00 a gallon, and it may do your average street bike engine more harm than good. But as JC said, there's two gas stations about a 1/2 mile down the road...

    You'll most likely do more than 100 miles...

    Track day question

    Do they let you leave the track at lunch or something to go get gas?

    Or are you in for the day once you go through inspection?

    You can leave any time you like. It's a very relaxed atmosphere.

    You come & go as you please. They (the workers at the front gate) will stamp your hand for the event. They don't use wrist bands for track days...
