Trackdays - The Ridge 6/21 and 7/6

I know a few of you are on here live around the Northwest.

I will be at The Ridge on 21 June and again on 6 July this summer at a minimum.
I'm taking the beginner school on the 21st, just because I've never taken it,
and the intermediate school on the 6th. Should be fun!!!

6 July will be a Military Trackday piggy backing on their normal day.
If you are military and are interested, they are offering discounted rates, but go through me so I can get a good headcount.


I'd love to see more 51s out there; I'm sure there will be. Even if you aren't military, I'd love to see you guys out there!!!

Yes.
Active duty.
Pretty sure if someone is reservist with a CAC card, that would work.
I'll check

What guys?

To clarify, we will be going to a normal trackday, but will be offered a discounted rate.
Optimum Performance Rider Training will be out there giving instruction.

I am not new to the track; I'm trying to get more military riders familiar with trackdays
to become safer on the roadways.

Gotcha. They are one of the companies out here that run trackdays and riding schools. I've been to tracks that you pay the track.. Out here they seem to subsidize it or contract it out.
