Track schools - recommendations - April 28, 2009, 11:27 AM

I think this will be the start of an expensive habit.

I know alot of people recommend CornerSpeed (which I will probably be going to), but are there any other track schools out there that you all would recommend?

MARRC.org if you'd like to get an amateur roadracing license and learn roadracing during a race weekend at Summit Point. But, it sounds like you're looking for something else... I've done the California Superbike School, but that was many years ago. It's a good option if you don't own a bike. If you own a sportbike, and you're looking to raise your skill level at a trackday environment with more one-on-one instruction, Cornerspeed is the way to go.

Sign up for a NESBA day and pick a CR, any CR, and ask to work with them. This is what I did at my last day and it was awesome. Great guys with NESBA with TONS of knowledge.

It's the cheaper route and I still would like to do Cornerspeed and Cornerspin classes.

Corner Speed is a great class, but it's $$$$

I'd recommend signing up for this MARRC MARRC Dates are in
if simply for the cost alone. There are a few slots open still for the 23 this month, but note that there are 2 additional dates later in the season as well.
