Motoworks Chicago invites you to join us on Monday August 12th 2019, for our 16th annual track day at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, Michigan.

This is a special day that is designed to cater to riders that are looking for a mellow day on the track, riding street bikes, and the beginner group is an amazing opportunity for a first timer to experience the track. The structure of this day was born back in 2004, at that time track days weren't attended by street riders, or as popular as they are today. I met with the team at SportbikeTrack Time and we came up with a plan to offer their beginner program and create a "1st Track Day" for the whole group. We had 37 riders that day, only 3 of whom had previously ridden on a track. The day was a great success with no crashes and lots of smiles as the riders had the chance to explore their machines with the help of the STT coaching staff. That spirit and program have continued as the day has evolved. This is not a race day.

Since that time we've put over 300 people on the track for the 1st time. If you have never been to the track, but you like twisty roads and are curious about doing a track day this event is for you.

This year we will run 3 groups.

Group 1 is for folks that are doing their 1st track day. For those that are new to the track and looking to take it easy the day is very structured. It begins with a classroom session to prepare the riders for the day. Then moves on to "parade laps" and on track drills to help the riders familiarize themselves with the track environment, and bolster their skills. As the day continues the riding is still structured with coaches on the track, but riders are free to push it as their comfort allows. Classroom instruction is provided all day.

Group 2 is for folks that have ridden at the track previously, but consider themselves street riders and are looking for a track experience free of drama, with plenty of room. There are guidelines for passing and proximity to other riders. This group also comes with optional classroom sessions. I highly recommend the classroom sessions. This is where STT really shines, the educational portion of their program is the finest in the industry.

Group 3 is "quick and polite" - this is a group for track day riders and racers that want to bring out their street or track bike and enjoy a less dense, more courteous experience than one would expect at a normal track day.

STT is hosting their annual Track Fest Saturday and Sunday, August 10-11 - camping at the track is only $5 - so come early and hang out on Sunday.

Todd Pugh and the team at Shiny side up are generously sponsoring a Pig Roast on Sunday night. We will do a track walk after dinner. Dinner is at 6pm - The track walk with K3 will leave at 7:30

We provide a catered lunch and cold water and Gatorade throughout the day. We'll have a pit set up with chairs and awnings as well. We also have a photographer there that will provide a link with hundreds of pics of all of the action.

We will have a block of rooms at a local hotel. Details on that will follow. I'll be camping at the track. Camping at the track costs $5 at the gate.
