1. What time do I need to be at the track?
6:30 AM because registration and tech open at 7:00 AM. This way, you should have time to unload your bike and proceed to registration and tech. We suggest you get through tech and registration as early as possible, so there will be no delays in getting to the mandatory riders meeting. We like to start the Rider's Meeting at 8:00 A.M. which can only happen if all riders arrive before 7:00 A.M. Riders can work on their bikes or get their space settled after they have registered and gone through tech. Please do not delay.”
2. What happens if I arrive at the track late?
You will have missed the riders meeting and not get to ride in the first riding rotation as you will not be able to receive a tech card until you attend the second riders meeting. It is important to be on time! The second Riders Meeting is at 10:30 AM. You must know all of our safety procedures before being allowed onto the track. In the event half day sessions are available you cannot get a tech card until you have attended the afternoon riders safety meeting.
3. What should I bring?
As a minimum, bring chairs to sit on while other riders are on the track, hat, sun glasses, sunscreen, a cooler stocked with water, ice, something to snack on, lunch (or money for lunch), and energy-type drinks. Bring your own gas. Gas is not available at the track!
4. Should I bring my own gasoline?
Yes. Keep in mind that you're probably only going to get about 15 miles/gallon and, at 150 miles/day, you'll need at least 10 gallons of fuel. Remember, leaded racing gas sometimes doesn't work with all management systems, especially ones with oxygen sensors. Bring your own gas. Gas is not available at the track!
5. Can I ride my bike to the track?
Yes you can; however, if you have a problem with the bike or it gets damaged, you might not be able to ride it home. This is why we highly recommend that you transport your bike to the track instead of riding it out and bring a friend. You should have a friend or friends there with you in the event they need to help you load a damaged bike or in the event you might get injured someone to get your stuff home. We STRONGLY ADVISE against riding your motorcycle to the track.

6. Can a friend come and watch?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it so they can assist you if there are problems with you or your bike. Many riders enjoy having their own rooting section which can take pictures of you flying around the track. Be advised that Dogs are NOT allowed at California Speedway, and children under 14 are free, but are NOT allowed to operate or ride a motorized vehicle. No alcoholic beverages are allowed at California Speedway as well as no smoking in the garages (4 bikes per garage bay please).
7. Do I need to bring food?
You could bring some energy snacks and lunch or money for lunch. Guests can purchase lunch through our catering service, as well. Again, we strongly encourage you to pack a cooler with water, ice, energy bars, and energy drinks.
8. What do I have to do to my bike?
Using duct tape from a hardware store, you have to tape up your headlights, speedometer, taillights, turn signal lenses, mirrors, wheel weights and remove your license plate. In addition, you must pull the fuse for your headlight and taillight.
9. What do I have to wear?
- You have to wear a full face helmet that is DOT and Snell approved. There are a few helmets that have not been Snell approved yet, but meet the British Standard test which is acceptable. Rentals Available.
- Rider must have proper motorcycle riding gloves that goes at least one inch above the wrist such as Alpinestars GP Plus, GP Pro, or GP Tech gloves. Alpinestars gloves available to rent for $5.00 a pair.
- Rider must wear motorcycle boots that go at least four inches above the ankle. No slip on boots, work boots, hiking boots, or tennis shoes. A good example is Alpinestars SMX4 or SMX5 or touring equivalent. Rentals are vailable for $20/day.
- You must have either leathers or a nylon riding suit, both top and bottom. Suits must zip together all the way around at the waist to protect you better in the event of a fall. Unzipped suits could ride up and leave your body exposed. No half zipped suits will be allowed to be used. No exposed torso front or rear is acceptable.
- FRA rents new ATC Leathers for $85/day and Alpine Stars boots for $20/day, plus security deposit.
- Back protectors are required. Rentals are available for a $10.00 per day rental fee.
10. Who must attend the Rider Development School?
If you have never attended another riding school, such as a Jason Pridmore riding class or track day we require that you attend our Rider Development School. If you have never attended any type of track day event, it is mandatory that you go through the class! In the event you have gone to other track days, we will interview you to make sure you are experienced enough to skip the class. All card-carrying licensed racers do not have to attend our class.
In general, the class is all about safety and making sure you have a fun and safe day! Our experience has taught us if we are going to err, it will be on the side of safety. It is extremely different being on a track verses riding fast in a canyon, which we are trying to get you to quit doing anyway. We want you to learn the correct lines around the track, proper entrance and exit procedures, proper signaling, proper passing techniques, flag meanings, braking points, apexes, etc. We can show you the proper and fastest lines around the track quicker than you can learn them yourself.
The class gets the same amount of track time as any other group. If you are a fairly proficient rider, You can move up to Level II or Level III after you have completed all classroom sessions for the balance of the day. The student to instructor ratio, at most events, is three students per instructor so each student receives a lot of one on one attention and personal feedback. Students have eight twenty minute sessions on the track riding in Level I with other Level I riders minus any lost time to mechanicals or crashes. In addition the students go out on the track at 8:00 AM for orientation laps so it is important any Rider Development School Student arrive early, unload their motorcycle and gear, go to registration immediately to sign in, receive a tech card, take their bike to tech and be ready to ride no later than 8:00 AM. Rider Development School Students will meet as a group close to the tech area unless told otherwise. If Rider Development School Student arrives too late to complete the sighting laps they will not be allowed to ride that day and will forfeit all monies paid!”
Top of Page
11. Do I lose riding time because I am in the Rider Development School?
No, you get the same amount of riding sessions as all other riders. In fact, you receive one additional session early in the morning for orientation laps so be registered, teched, and suited up ready to ride at 8:00 AM close to the tech area with your motorcycle as you will be riding with the Level I group. If Rider Development School Student arrives too late to complete the sighting laps they will not be allowed to ride that day and will forfeit all monies paid!”
12. What is the agenda for the Rider Development School?
You are the first group out on the track, and you start off by doing a couple very slow laps following the instructors on the proper line. After a couple of laps, you will follow the proper exit procedure, re-stage, and re-enter the track. Then, two more laps, a proper exit, and a debriefing in the classroom. The first classroom session lasts approximately 30 minutes while other groups are riding. You will receive an outline of the class as well as track maps. You will suit up again and go out for a full twenty-minute session at a moderate pace till we sort out the various skill levels of all the riders in the class. Some riders will be waved past the instructors and can pick up the pace, some are monitored more closely. After that session, you return to the class for additional debriefing and information which may last approximately thirty minutes. When the rotation comes around for the school, you go back on the track for another twenty-minute session. After that, the rest of the day becomes more of a one-on-one process, with our instructors available to assist you. At your request, the instructor will either lead or follow you out on the track.
We like riders in the class to stage in the same area each time before going out on the track. We then break the class down by abilities so you won't have to ride faster than you are comfortable riding! Only three students per instructor. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ALL STUDENTS TO BE ON TIME FOR ALL CLASSROOM AND ON THE TRACK EXPERIENCES. WE WILL START WITHOUT YOU AS THERE IS LITTLE EXTRA TIME TO BE HELD UP. BE AT PREGRID ON TIME!
13. Can I bump up to Level II or Level III if I attend the school?
Yes you can after completing all the classroom sessions which means the last three sessions of the day can be with another group if you are comfortable at those levels. NOT BEFORE! However, your instructor must approve your request to move up to a higher group before you can do so and they will advise you as to what Level you can move up to.
Note: Since Fastrack Riders provides lap times this will determine if a
Rider Development School Student can move up to a different level.
14. How do I register or sign up at the track?
Go to the registration office which is marked. It is much faster if you preregister, plus it saves you the $50.00 post registration fee. Most events sell out two to three weeks in advance so many times Post Registration or signing up at the track is not an option. If you have registered for more than one day, you still have to go to registration each day.
15. How do I pre-register?
In case you're reading a printed version of these FAQs, go to our web site www.fastrackriders.com, and just sign in through our On-Line registration button on the home page. It is to the right of your screen. It only take about one minute to register on line and you save the $50.00 Post Registration Fee. Also, many of our events are sell outs in advance of the event so if you do not pre register, there is a very good chance you will not get to ride
Top of Page
16. How do I get my bike teched?
You must first go to registration, sign in, and get a tech card. Take the tech card and your motorcycle to the tech area, and the inspector will take your card, inspect your bike, and put a sticker on your bike for the class you will be riding in. Each day the sticker colors change so each day you have to get your bike teched and inspected.
17. What else should I consider?
At Las Vegas Motorspeedway we advise you to bring a pop-up canopy to protect yourself from the sun. California Speedway provides garages (4 bikes per garage bay please), so canopies are not necessary.
18. Should I bring tools?
Absolutely! You never know what might vibrate loose or come off your bike, so a basic tool kit is a good idea. You will need enough tools to possibly remove your wheels in the event you have to buy new tires. See #19 below for pressure recommendations.
19. Do you have tire vendors at your events?
Yes, our tire vendor is to Friction Racing Products. For track use, they suggest using a lower tire pressure than for street use. Please check with them for proper inflation based upon conditions. It will almost always be lower than normal street recommended pressures. Friction Racing Products is Fastrack Riders official tire sponsor and will be at all of our events.
20. Can we spend the night at the track?
Yes but only on Saturday night at Auto Club Speedway. At Chuckwalla Valley Raceway there is a charge for camping. You must arrive before 8:00 PM at all facilities. Showers are available at Auto Club Speedway.
Top of Page
21. Can I change groups if I think I'm in a group that is too fast (or too slow) for me?
Fastrack Riders reviews lap times and will move riders up or down based strictly upon their lap times.
22. Can I ride a bike in two different sessions?
No, we no longer allow riders to ride in two different sessions. You must ride in the group you were registered to ride in.
23. Can I ride two different bikes in my level?
This option is available but must be approved at the track the day of the event. There is a $75 fee for the second bike. Several riders have abused this privlidge so we monitor these situations closely. There are penalties if a rider allows another rider to ride his second bike including they will be done for the day plus they have to pay an additional cost of the track day.
24. What happens if I forget my key to my motorcycle?
Unfortunately, it could be a bad day for you. New bikes are very difficult to "hot wire", so you probably won't get to ride your bike that day. You will lose all money paid, so please do not ask for a credit or refund.
25. What happens if I cannot make it to the event I signed up for because of some unexpected last minute change?
FASTRACK RIDERS ASSOCIATION CREDIT & RETURN POLICY
Top of Page
26. Do you run your events in the event of rain or inclement weather?
Yes, FASTRACK RIDERS maintains a "rain or shine" policy, meaning we run regardless of any weather conditions excluding snow or ice on the track. However, Fastrack Riders would never require riders to ride under unsafe conditions. Each rider must appear at the track unless otherwise notified by Fastrack or they will be treated as a "no show" and forfeit their payment to Fastrack.
Weather is about as easy to forecast as predicting which number and color will come up on the roulette wheel in Vegas. It’s less than perfect science. A perfect example, Fastrack Riders staged a 3 day event at California Speedway. On the original forecast it was going to be great all weekend, then it changed to some rain on Sunday but nice all the other days. On Friday it changed again to raining most of Saturday and the rest of the days it was suppose to be nice. In the end, it was beautiful on Saturday, a little rain on Sunday morning so we got a later start, and Monday it was perfect. Each day was a great day to ride and everyone had a great time and got all the track time they could stand. During the week before the event we received in the range of 200 calls wanting to cancel because of the pending rain or asking us our opinion on the pending rain. Going forward as in the past, Fastrack Riders runs “rain or shine” like most other track day companies. If you are scheduled and do not show up you will forfeit all monies paid.
27. Is there an ATM at the track?
Yes at California Speedway an ATM is available but not currently at other tracks we attend.
28. Do you have leathers or riding suits for rent?
We will have twelve ATC leather riding suits in various sizes to chose from. They rent for $85 per day, and you must reserve them in advance. There is a refundable $300 deposit required in the event you damage the suit. You will be required to sign a separate waiver form, as well. We also rent boots, gloves, helmets and back protectors.
29. Do you have motorcycles for rent?
Track prepared bikes are available through Xtrememotorcyclerental.com which is listed on our home page. They are a separate company from Fastrack Riders so please contact them for daily rental rates.
30. Why is there a $50.00 post registration fee?
Because it costs so much more to process credit cards and information after the event is set up. The entire event from staff, food required, and riding rotation, is based upon our pre-registered riders.
Top of Page
31. Will there be a photographer at the track?
Yes! Pictures are usually taken during all of the morning sessions and are available for purchase in the afternoon and most of the time online after the event. We will be providing on-bike camcorder rentals by reservation as well, so call ahead if you'd like to have a session on tape. Pictures are done by CaliPhotography.com who uses the latest state of the art camera equipment.
32. What is the difference in the different riding groups?
Rider Development School
Auto Club Speedway
1.52 or below
2.02 and up
33. Why does FASTRACK RIDERS run three groups?
We run three groups; however, with over ten years' experience, we have learned it is safest to run three groups since we train or convert so many riders from the streets to the track. Many track day promoters only concern themselves about lap times, not safety, and do not offer classes to help riders make the transition from the street to the track. On an average FASTRACK RIDERS day, you will run between 150 to 195 miles, unless there are a lot of crashes which eat up track time.
34. Can I get individual training no matter what class I ride in?
Yes! Through Racer's Edge there is a high performance track riding school on a per session basis with video equipment. Contact Racer's Edge @ 702-257-3808 for more information.
35. What happens if I crash?
If you crash, it's a 90% chance that you are done for they day! Why? Too many riders ride over their abilities and crash, this takes away from other riders riding time and endangers other riders so no matter what happened unless another rider caused you to crash, you are done for the day. It has been proven over 60% of the riders that are allowed to ride again, crash again the same day. Sorry but we cannot let one or two riders ruin everyone else’s day. No refunds, no credits! If you are allowed to go back out, you will sit out for three sessions.
Top of Page
36. Can I ride a cruiser-type bike at a FASTRACK RIDERS event?
We've had almost every type of bike ridden at one time or another over the years but, Fastrack Riders no longer allows cruiser motorcycles to be ridden on the track. The speed differentiation is too great and creates a safety issue. We like cruisers so it is only a safety issue as to why they cannot be ridden at one of our track days.
37. What do you recommend if I am a relatively new rider and not ready for the track?
We suggest you contact the Motorcycle Safety Foundation at 800-447-4700. They have different classes that can help any rider.
38. Do I have to be a racer or ride really fast to do track days?
No! Absolutely not! We want to help you improve your riding skills and make you a safer rider. You could ride in our Level I class as often as you like where speed is not the issue.
39. How fast do I have to ride or have to be?
Just stay within the speed range where you are most comfortable. Do not worry about being passed. It is the other riders' responsibility to pass you safely and cleanly. It is about riding safe and being safe, and the only way to do that is for you to ride within your limits and comfort zone. Yes, there will always be faster riders than you! Just maintain your line and let them get around you. Do not worry about holding anyone up, and never look behind when riding on the track. Always look ahead!
40. Can I ride without medical insurance?
Absolutely not! You will sign a form stating you have in force some form of healthcare insurance. If you sign our waiver stating you have medical insurance and you do not have medical insurance it will be considered a fraudulent act.
Check out www.instantins.com if you would like to purchase insurance

41. What are the Minimum-Experience Requirements for the Rider Development School?
- We randomly ask for your valid motorcycle operators license at the track.
- Must be at least 18 years of age, or have a parent or guardian sign a waiver form
- Minimum of 1 year riding experience
- Minimum of 8,000 miles riden on the street
42. FASTRACK RIDERS LIKE ALL TRACK DAY COMPANIES RUN THEIR EVENTS RAIN OR SHINE.
YOU MUST ATTEND THE EVENT WITH YOUR GEAR AND MOTORCYCLE READY TO RIDE AS NO REFUNDS OR CARRY OVER CREDITS GIVEN IF YOU ARE A NO SHOW OUT OF FEAR FOR THE WEATHER. WE WILL CALL AND E MAIL YOU IF WE CANCEL AN EVENT DUE TO WEATHER IN ADVANCE OF THE EVENT SO PLEASE CHECK YOUR VOICE MAIL OR E MAILS BEFORE LEAVING FOR THE TRACK. FASTRACK RIDERS ASSC. has a "Rain or Shine" policy meaning we do not normally cancel events due to rain, wind, or snow. In the event of a cancellation carry over credits will be issued which can only be used for the make up event and not at any other Fastrack Riders previously scheduled event.
43. What does the schedule for the day look like?
7:00 AM tech and registration is open
8:00 AM Riders meeting or Rider Development School Students go out on the track
9:00 AM and the top of every hour Level III is on the track for twenty minutes minus lost time
9:20 AM and twenty past the hour every hour Level II is on the track for twenty minutes minus lost time
9:40 AM and forty past the hour every hour Level I and Rider Development School Students are on the track for twenty minutes minus an lost time.
5:00 PM the track is no longer active and it is time to load up and go home. If Rider Development School Student arrives too late to complete the sighting laps they will not be allowed to ride that day and will forfeit all monies paid!
All Rider Development School Students must be registered, bike teched, with their riding gear and motorcycle dressed ready to ride near the tech area at 8:00 AM. It is the responsibility of all the students to go to the classroom immediately after each riding session.
44. What is different about Fastrack Riders than most other track day organizations?
1. We run very organized safe events because we have a paid trained staff with procedures and rules.
2. We run a full contingency of corner workers at all tracks. We make sure the entire track is covered by a corner worker by line of sight so in the event something happens we can notify all riders on the track through the flags. This is all about safety so until you need a corner worker, you might not appreciate the fact we always have the entire track covered by line of sight.
3. At all Auto Club Speedway events Fastrack Riders runs two ALS Ambulances. This is done so in the event there is a transport and one ambulance has to leave the facility the event will not be shut down as at most track day events. It has happened though very rarely sometimes even two ambulances have to handle a transport within the same period of time and the event can still be shut down.
Events at Buttonwillow, Willow Springs both the Road Course and The Streets of Willow, and Las Vegas Motor Speedway only one ALS Ambulance will be on site. This reduces the cost to the rider by approximately $12.00 per rider but we do run the risk in the event of a transport the event will be shut down untill another ambulances is back in position at the track. Sometimes this can take more than an hour. Fastrack Riders did this to offer extremely competitive prices at these tracks.
4. The entire Fastrack team is equipped with our own radios so there is good communication to quickly handle all situations whether it be in tech, pre grid, administration, start finish, fire safety, ambulances, Rider Development School, or security.
5. Fastrack Riders carries it's own insurance while many track day promoters only purchase insurance at the track for that one event. The key is no one wants anyone to crash and get injured but in the event something did happen to a rider track day companies that carry their own insurance can better protect or assist a rider with an insurance claim than companies that purchase insurance through the track.
45. Does Fastrack Riders take a lunch break or when do I eat lunch?
Ans. Each rider eats lunch at their leisure. Fastrack does not take a lunch hour. We use five minutes from Level I and five minutes from Level III to take lunches. That is usually around noon.
Top of Page
46. What happens if it is my first time to a track and I have no idea how the track goes, what do I do?
Ans: Fastrack Riders always provides “Sighting Laps” for each group during their first session in the morning. We will enter the track and complete about a lap and a half and all riders will exit with the lead rider when they signal to exit. All riders will then be allowed back out on the track to complete their session. This way you will be familiar with how to get on and off the track and the general layout. You must be at pre grid at the appointed time for your group or you will miss the orientation laps.
47. What are the most important things I should remember other than being on time and paying attention to the clock?
Ans: 1. Cold tires! It takes a minimum of three laps to get the proper heat in the tires to get maximum traction.
2. Ride within your abilities! It’s okay to be slower than other riders. Never look back! Always focus on the track in front of you! There will always be faster riders.
3. Get to the track early, unload your bike and gear ASAP, go straight to registration and sign in, get your tech card and take the tech card and bike to tech. Once you have been teched either go to the mandatory riders meeting at 8:00 AM if you are not in the Rider Development School. Rider Development School students should be dressed ready to ride at 8:00 AM next to tech.
48. I am afraid of riding in a big group. I fear taking off in a large group and getting hit?
Ans: We limit group sizes based upon the size and configuration of the track so it should never be too crowded. In addition we do not let the entire group go at once. We usually only allow four riders to enter the track at a time leaving a big gap between each group of four so it’s not a mad dash by the entire group. This way it is safer for all and prevents the track from getting too jammed up.
49. If I am a Rider Development School Student and I am late, why can’t I ride?
It would be unsafe to put you on the track with no experience. It is unsafe for you and other riders.
50. Why do I have to pay if I am late for the Rider Development School and prevented from riding?
Fastrack Riders pays their instructors and has to schedule them to be at the track in advance so we have the cost whether you ride or not. It is your responsibility to be there on time which we tell you at the time of registration, plus we are turning away other students since you reserved a spot.
51. What is your credit and return policy?

52. What are the rules that apply to a track day?
1. Adhere to all flags and what they mean. This is the only way a rider can be communicated to telling them if something has happened on the track, debris in the next corner, something is wrong with their motorcycle which could cause them to crash, or their session is over. FLAGS are all about keeping riders safe on the track so it is VERY IMPORTANT all riders follow the flag rules.
2. Clean six foot passing rule in effect at all times. Since it is only a track day there is no reason for close passing which could cause a rider to crash. It is common sense, being courteous, and the safe thing to do. Riders have all day and twenty minute long sessions to get around a slower rider so there is no need to stuff a rider and take the chance of being involved in a crash.
3. No intentional wheelies! Power wheelies are acceptable where the front wheel comes up and goes back down but no intentional wheelies or holding the front wheel up to impress the crowd.
4. No Sparking Type knee sliders allowed. While they look cool, they do have small bits of metal in them which will come off the slider and can cut down a tire.
5. Adhere to the passing rules based upon the group a rider is in. Level I allows passing inside and out on the straights and on the outside only in the turns. The turn begins where there are two braking cones so no passing on the inside after that point. All passes must be clean six foot passes or rider will be reported to pre grid. Any physical contact made with another rider or bike will call for immediate suspension from the event. Level II allows passing inside and out every place on the track including the corners. However the passes must be clean six foot passes or the rider will be reported to pre grid. Any physical contact made with another bike or rider will be immediately suspended from the event. Level III allows passing inside and out any place on the track. All passes are under rule number two which is a six foot clearance.
6. Proper entry and exit of the race track. The rider should always stay to the edge they are entering the track at till they are up to speed. Never enter a track and cut across the track as other riders already on the track might be coming down the track and rider entering the track could get hit because they pulled into the riding line. When exiting the track, keep an arm up or leg out well before exiting the track and stay to the edge while keeping your speed up till off the track. NEVER CHANGE YOUR MIND WHEN EXITING AND GO BACK ONTO THE TRACK AFTER SIGNALLING TO EXIT!
These are just plain Common Sense
7. NEVER STOP ON THE TRACK! Unless something happens right in front of a rider they should never ever stop on the track.
8. NEVER LOOK BACK while riding on the track! There is too much going on in front of a rider and every time a rider looks back their bike drifts in the direction they turn their head which could lead to them hitting another rider, turning into the path of another rider, or running off the track.
9. NO CONSUMPTION OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL WHILE RIDING OR BETWEEN RIDING SESSIONS! Sounds stupid to have to make this a rule but riders have been caught doing just that.
53. IT IS NOT OUR FAULT IF:
Sorry, but if your bike will not start, you forgot your key, your transportation to the track could not make it for any reason so you could not make it, forgot some gear, your bike does not pass tech, you crash early and can not ride, something breaks on your bike, you injure yourself and cannot ride, or you thought the weather was going to be bad so you did not show. While we certainly sympathize with any of these occurrences, since you purchased a slot / ticket / space / seat which we reserved for you to ride with Fastrack Riders, there will be no refunds or credit given per our credit and return policy.
53. WHAT TIME IS THE FASTRACK OFFICE OPEN?
Monday through Friday 9:00 AM till 6:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM
Closed Sunday and all holidays!
If we are at the track we will not be able to answer your call so please
leave a message and we will get back to you in a prompt manner.
