Track event at MHC/P1 kart track in Tucson Sunday Oct 21/22

This is a first for me, and probably many of you: A trackday in Tucson!

The Musselman’s Honda Circuit (MHC) has “sportbike” events once in a while, and the next one is only 1 week away.

More info is here:

I also have an entry on the Club Activities page:

You need to have 1 or 2 piece leathers or a textile suit which has armor, boots, gloves, and a helmet. Your bike needs to be in good condition.

This is the schedule:

Friday Oct 21st 6-10PM – Novice/Beginner
Saturday Oct 22nd 6-10PM – Intermediate/Expert

I don’t see why you can’t suit up and just ride your bike over there and participate.

The price is $60 for non members and $40 for members. Membership is $150 for a year, and you get one event for free with membership.

The track is a kart track, so speeds will be low. This is great for starting out. It’s only about .8 miles long. No matter what you do, you’re going to get passed by guys on dirt bikes with street tires 🙂

Riding on the track is a great way to really learn how to ride a bike. If you haven’t ever done a track day, there’s no better way to start than this.

    This weekends Track Days were great! Andy came out on his 998 and Francisco on his Monster. Andy got to test out a few suspesion tweeks, and I can tell you that his set-up was on the money, he was putting down some great laps! We couldn’t get Francisco off the track! Everyone would pit in and take a break, with the steady thump and rumble of his gorgeous Ducati making lap after lap after lap in the background. It was his first time to a track anywhere, and Im pretty sure he had a blast!
    Out next TD is Saturday Nov. 19th from 10am-5pm. We need more Ducati’s out there for sure. Im looking forward to seeing ya’ll out there.
