I heard Mid-Ohio has some kind of Black Friday special where you can get a good deal on track time. Can anyone give me info on that? I couldn’t find anything on their website.

N2 Trackdays also discounts track day packages, and you wont be stuck going to one track either. You will have the option to attend any of the track days N2 runs, from PIRC to Road Atlanta, NCBike, VIR, etc (lots of choices).

There are 6 day/12 day/18 day/ and season track day packages available. When the days are averaged out, you pay less per day than you would buying them individually on 95% of the tracks we run.

The 12 and up track day packages also include the Elite Membership (Normally $250) and allows lots of flexibility, my favorite benefit of the Elite Membership is  the ability to cancel up to 8AM the day of the track day and you get your day back.

More info here:

Let me know if you had any other questions. The packages aren't available for sale yet, but will be very, very soon. ;)

I think it's Cyber Monday.  Has been the last couple years.  I live pretty close to Mid O and went several times last year, real easy for me to take a vacation day and go ride a motorcycle as fast as I can.  I'll be doing a few N2 days and some with STT next season.  Well actually, I'll be down in Alabama on Friday to do a day with STT on Saturday.  That's going to be great!

Track Report

 

So, Little Tally is a fun track. I wouldn't pay more than $100 for a day there but for the price it's fine. The track is built for smaller bikes, I was hitting 3rd gear twice for a very short time, the rest of the track was 2nd. Railing on a 300 or a 650 there would be about perfect I think.

The surface has tons of grip, even in the wet. I had my knee down in the first session with the track semi-dry and somewhat chilly (50 degrees or so air temp). The downside is that with the track being all left turns except for one, your tires get pretty roasted pretty fast. Both Jacob and I finally got to experience what Rossi has been fighting with all season 75% into every race. I now understand why he slows down so much, a wandering rear tire is not a good feeling. I also got to experience my first power-slide because of this, which was a combination of fun and pucker-y. Not something I want to do a lot of, but I have to say the mini-racing this summer helped a lot with being able to recover and not highside. We constantly lose the rear on those little bikes. 

The track facilities are pretty bare-bones, however they have a nice control tower disguised as a silo, and the instruction/meeting area is actually in a building set up with a white board and so on. Power is available, but there are no garages. With a sold out weekend and the yamaha demo truck there, we were able to find room on a paved surface to set up our pit area and there was still some room available. One downside to the way the track is set up is the pit and everything else is set up in the infield and you can't leave when the track is active. They have railroad crossing guards set up that block all traffic when it is a hot track. They lift the gates briefly between each session. 

STT did a good job running the event, we should have some pretty decent photos to post tomorrow at some point from the main sponsor 129photos.com. We got pretty lucky and STT/129Photos had Thermosman there all Saturday setting up people's suspensions for free, which was pretty cool. For a thanksgiving weekend trackday, I have no complaints and will probably be attending again next year.

Yeah, if you're looking for a big track with amenities, Barber would be the one to go to. Nothing against little tally, but it's just that, little. It was great for $90 though! 

 

The drive was about 9 hours each way, with stops. It's only about 40 minutes from Barber, just east of Birmingham.

I'd do Barber next year for sure.  This made sense for a lot of reasons this time, but talking to folks down there, a lot of them love Barber.

3rd gear power wheelies and power sliding out of corners now. no highsides, but one was real close, lol... though that was probably more to do with my tire being roasted.

I obliterated the left side of mine.  Slippy slide all over the last session.  Made it through the first corner and threw my hand up!  Haha
