Although the weather has not fully cooperated, Track Days have begun at various tracks. Time to get out the leathers, boots, tire warmers and all the gear to get some all-important seat time.
Which brings us to Nelsons Ledges Road Course. What was once a potato farm is now the site that grew into this famed road course in 1958. With new ownership has come new life. The track is newly paved with improved curbing and many other enhancements done almost daily.
Plans are in the works to again hold a 24-hour endurance motorcycle race. The first was held in 1968. To date, no motorcycle racing events have been scheduled. But several organizations are holding track days at this famed track to hone existing skills or to teach an aspiring racer the ins and outs of road course racing.
LEAN TRACK DAYS, ROGER LYLE'S MOTORCYCLE EXCITEMENT AND EVOLVE GT are all holding various track days. All offer the opportunity to learn to ride safely. Novice, intermediate and expert sessions are run throughout the course of the weekend. They also offer a chance to share a love of motorcycles with guys and girls like you and build friendships that can last a lifetime.
For your information The Champcar Endurance Series (24-hour race) returns to Nelsons the last weekend in June. Although not motorcycles this go-around it might be worth a ride out to one of what will again be one of the best road course tracks in the country right in your own backyard
As always ride safe, Denise Kennedy
