ATTENTION IN THE TRACKAPALOOZA PADDOCK!!!


ALL RIDERS MUST READ AND BE ABLE TO MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS BEFORE BEING ALLOWED ON TRACK!

General Requirements
Registration will be from 7am thru 8:10am each morning.  You must check in, get your riding credentials, and sign our waiver at registration.  All tracks have you sign a waiver to enter their property but Track Day Winner also requires you to sign AN ADDITIONAL WAIVER at registration.  PLEASE BRING YOUR GEAR (GLOVES, BOOTS, SUIT, HELMET), YOUR BIKE, AND A PHOTO ID TO REGISTRATION. All riders will have already paid so we will run an express registration line to get you registered, our waiver signed, your bike properly inspected, and get you back to your pit to be ready to attend the mandatory rider's meeting.  MANDATORY RIDERS MEETING EACH MORNING AT 8:15am - YOU MUST ATTEND THIS MEETING OR YOU CANNOT RIDE! 


NO ON-SITE PURCHASING OF TRACK TIME WILL BE AVAILABLE - YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER AND PAY FOR YOUR TRACK TIME BY GOING TO WWW.TRACKDAYWINNER.COM PRIOR TO COMING TO THE TRACK.

You cannot ride in any other riding group than the group you registered for and have a sticker to ride with! We may bump you up or down depending on staff recommendation and riding group availability.

You must be at least 15 years old to participate in any Trackapalooza event. Riders younger than 18 years old must have a signed waiver from a parent or legal guardian and that parent or guardian must be at the track.

A leather full coverage one or leather two piece protective riding suit must be worn. No textile gear allowed on track. If you are using a two-piece suit, the top and bottom must zip together. The zipper does not have to be a 360 degree zipper; a zipper that joins the top and bottom is sufficient.

A full face helmet (Snell, DOT or equivalent approval) in good condition with no damage to it is required of all participants. If your helmet is more than five years old, it should be replaced. Helmets are stamped with a date of manufacture inside. If you cannot find a date of manufacture it may be because your helmet is very old!  If in doubt, replace it!

Gauntlet style leather gloves are required.

Sturdy, over the ankle leather motorcycle-specific boots must be worn. No hiking or recreational boots allowed.

Here are some optional items that can make your day more comfortable: Change of clothes, hat, food, water, bananas/fruit, lawn chair, pop up canopy, fan, sunscreen, portable radio, cash, list of emergency contact numbers, photo ID, generator (if power is needed), tool kit, spare parts, showering items.

Motorcycle Technical Inspection Requirements (ALL EVENTS)
All motorcycles must pass technical inspection before riding. If you bike fails technical inspection you cannot ride it on the track until the failure is corrected. Please make sure that your bike will pass technical inspection before arriving at the track.

• 70% tire tread remaining - no exceptions

• 70% brake pads remaining - no exceptions

• All levers must be tight and undamaged - brake, clutch, shifter, etc.

• The throttle must operate smoothly with no binding or sticking. When twisted the throttle must quickly return to the original position without binding or sticking.

• Properly adjusted and lubricated chain. No more than 1.5 inches of slack

  • No fluid leaks (safety wire is NOT required in NOVICE OR INTERMEDIATE groups)
  • No antifreeze in the bike - use water in the radiator or use Water Wetter mixed with distilled water

• All glass and plastic (except tachometer/speedometer) must be taped over. We recommend using blue painters tape

• Mirrors removed or taped over

• Brake and headlight deactivated/unplugged

• Oil filter and drain plug must be secured and not leaking (place a dab of silicone or RTV on each point to ensure they are secure)

• Bodywork should fit snug to the bike and not be loose in any way

• GoPro or similar style cameras MUST BE TETHERED to your bike. No helmet mounted cameras of any kind are allowed.


You should bring the basic tools you need to prep your bike for the track. This includes wrenches, screwdrivers, painter's tape (for covering glass and plastics) and other tools.

Keep a close eye on tire air pressure. Too much air or not enough air in a tire can be a disaster!  If you aren't sure what pressure to run go and see the tire vendor at the event. That person will be able to answer almost any tire-related questions you might have.


Stay hydrated! Even in cool weather you will sweat profusely when riding in a leather suit on a track!

Keep an eye on your pit area and those around you. Don't leave valuables laying around while you are out riding.

Most of all, ride your ride. Don't fall into the trap of keeping up with a buddy or trying to improve your riding ability too quickly. If your mind or body tells you something listen to it! If you aren't comfortable at any time come back to your pit, find a staff member, and work out a solution. If something happens on track that makes you uncomfortable let an instructor or staff member know - don't take matters into your own hands.

If you crash or any part of your bike touches the ground (except for your tires) YOU MUST HAVE YOUR BIKE INSPECTED BEFORE GOING OUT ON THE TRACK. If you have an at-fault crash twice in one day you will not be allowed to ride any more that day.

If a staff member approaches you due to erratic lines or to discuss issues with your riding listen to what they are telling you. Any instance of not respecting a staff member will result in you being asked to leave the event.
