Best track day

Force 5


The Original

3 X AMA Superbike Champ & AMA Hall of Famer Reg Pridmore is the originator of track days, and what a great idea he had. Back when he started - in the 70's, it was all about teaching riders to ride well - on a racetrack. That has never changed for Reg. It has evolved over time with new technology and extreme racing, but it's still about riders learning to handle and control that fire breathing beast they ride. And Reg, along with his stellar team, is still teaching every school.

Sure there are a ton of track days, even other schools. There are several other motorcycle groups that go to the same tracks we do. Most of them offer a minimum of 3 groups, many of them are what we refer to as “free for alls” - not schools. There’s lots of waiting around, because of running 3 or 4 groups, but also due to crashes. Obviously we can’t guarantee there will be no incidents, but one of the things we consistently get great feedback about at CLASS is the safety aspect and how well run our team makes a day at the track. Hope to see you at CLASS!

Click on track name for a map of the area and a track map. Whenever we refer to "both days" we're talking about the two back to back days at the same track. "Std School"= Standard 2 group day open to all.

Track Locations:
Streets of Willow: Rosamond, CA
Sonoma Raceway: Sonoma, CA (Sears Point)
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca: Monterey, CA
VIR: Alton, VA, (near Danville)

*Please be aware: Laguna Seca Raceway has a 90db noise limitation which is strictly enforced by track officials. No aftermarket pipes allowed. If you are asked by track officials to stay off the track due to excessive noise, CLASS has no say in the matter and a refund will not be given. Also for Laguna Seca: Please secure a number to your windscreen or right side fairing that is clearly visible from 50'. 6" numbers are preferable.

*If you have a loud pipe and want to ride Laguna Seca, we can set you up with a maker of "quiet inserts". Email Jay Murray at: jaymurray2 at aol.com. Jay took Reg's CBR600RR with the factory HRC pipe from 100+ db to 89 db, and gained midrange power! ALSO: Reliable sources from Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca have advised us that late model Yamaha R6s, Ducatis and BMW R1000S', Ducatis and others have been known to fail sound tests even in stock trim. If you ride one of these bikes and are concerned about not passing sound at Laguna, Jay Murray can probably help. Please contact us at CLASS or shoot Jay an email.

VIR is a two day CLASS. This means all riders are in it for both days, and the second day is an expansion of the first. Our one plus one days do a great job of this, and we plan to make two day classes even better! (A little more intense than a standard CLASS, but not nearly as intense as a D-Day CLASS, which is the ultimate Two Day CLASS).

For Standard School enrollment, we require a $150 deposit per rider per CLASS date at Streets of Willow. All other tracks are $200 deposit per CLASS day. If your enrollment is part of a block of schools receiving a discount, we require payment in full at the time of enrollment. If you pay only the deposit when you enroll, the balance will be due 30 days prior to your event date. For D-Day class, deposit is 35% down at enrollment, 35% 120 days out and balance 30 days out.

More chat from Students...

"Reg, I have taken several other track programs and although I do tend to learn from each, I really enjoy your school because of the relaxed environment but yet serious nature of the way you run the program. I never feel pressured and the instructors are top notch and really want you to learn and become a better a rider... You do make a difference in teaching people a safe and fun way to ride."

Regards,

Jon B.
