No annual membership fee is required to ride in Performance Track Riding events at The Mid-Ohio School!

Overview

Get on the track for one or two full days of track lapping on your sportbike. All skill levels are encouraged to participate, from NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED riders. Our instructors will aid you in cornering skills, visual skills, body position, throttle control, steering input, lean angle and entry speed. Work on line selection and traction management and brush up on track flags and terminology. All participants must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid driver's license to participate in Performance Track Riding Programs.

Types of Events

Standard Events (Single-Day and Two-Day): This course will be broken up into three groups (NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED) by skill level to ensure a quality experience for everyone. Riders average 2 hours and 20 minutes of track time each day of this course.

Max-Time Twilight Events: Open to experienced INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED riders. Intermediate riders will take the track for one 15 minute warm up session and then the advanced riders will do the same. Following the warm up sessions, all riders will be on track at the same time for the remainder of the event. Instructors will still be available to assist you at any time and the checkered flag will fly every 1/2 hour to insure that you come into the pits, take a break and get a drink before heading back out for more fun. To enroll in one of these events you should have ridden in intermediate or advanced levels at least 3 times in the past 12 months. This is to make sure you are comfortable riding with intermediate and advanced riders at the same time. These events have a riding start time of 5:00 pm and an end time of DUSK. Remember, that means the ending time will vary depending on what month of the year these events are held.

Frequent Rider Program

In every day life, there are things outside of our control. Traffic. Taxes. Weather. The Mid-Ohio School’s Frequent Rider Program is a relief.

The Frequent Rider Program was designed to allow for life’s little uncertainties. Simply ride four or more days in 2014 and reap the rewards. Those who ride four days will be protected from weather or any other unforeseen circumstances that keep them from the fun. Can’t make it to the track on a day that you’ve already scheduled? Don’t like the way the weather looks when you wake up? Call up to 72 hours after the event and let us know when you’d like to come back...no questions asked.

Ride seven days and be protected on two of those seven.  Those who ride ten or more days are rewarded the same way with one additional, huge opportunity... One of these riders will be chosen in a drawing at our 2014 Frequent Rider Appreciation Day to ride for free in 2015! Members of this program are eligible to ride in a special session during the Buckeye Superbike Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire.

All Frequent Rider Program members are locked into the regular price rate, even if you schedule a track day at the 11th hour.

Bike Preparation

  • All bikes MUST pass technical inspection prior to being permitted on to the track. It is the sole responsibility of the rider to ensure their bike meets these requirements. If a bike fails tech inspection, it may be presented for re-inspection at any time. If a bike is involved in a crash it must be re-inspected prior to being permitted on to the track. No refunds will be made for bikes, which fail to pass tech inspection.
  • All bikes must be prepared to endure high speeds on track. All parts must be fastened securely and adjusted correctly.
  • All fuel, coolant, hydraulic and lubrication systems must be fluid tight (see below for additional information for Advanced and Intermediate bikes).
  • Tires must be in good condition, without signs of excessive wear. Tire valves must have caps. Wheel weights must be taped.
  • Brakes must be in good working order with a minimum of 1.5mm of pad remaining. Discs must not be excessively worn or loose.
  • All bikes must have a functioning, well-marked engine cut-off switch on the handlebar near the right hand grip.
  • Throttles must operate smoothly and be self-closing.
  • Any glass or plastic lenses must be taped completely. Mirrors and turn indicators are permitted in the NOVICE GROUP ONLY. All others must be removed.
  • Center stands are NOT permitted in the ADVANCED and INTERMEDIATE GROUPS and we recommend removing them for the NOVICE GROUP.
  • ADVANCED and INTERMEDIATE GROUP machines must use a non-ethylene glycol coolant. Water and/or water wetter, or propylene glycol solutions such as Evans, Engine Ice, Liquid Performance, or 7th gear, are permitted.
  • ADVANCED and INTERMEDIATE GROUP machines must have oil drain plugs, oil filler caps, and oil filters secured. We recommend safety wire, but will accept application of RTV silicone to the fitting.
  • It is recommended that any filler/drain for any fluid system be secured. Fluid leaks on the track shorten everyone’s day.
  • License plates must have bolts taped or be removed.

"Very well organized, very punctual on times ... everything was very well communicated ... the instructors/control riders were very informative ... I couldn't have asked for any better day."
--Mike Bowers

"My father and I attended the 06/04/07 date and were completely blown away by the organization, professionalism, and obvious commitment you show towards safety and making it possible for every level of rider to significantly progress in one day."
--Jon Spadafore

"My husband and I were both highly impressed with the availability of rider coaches willing to teach, as we were very happy to learn all that we could."
--Ken and Mandi Arner

"I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that our recent trip to the Mid-Ohio track was awesome. We had never been to this particular track before, so we weren't sure what to expect. I must say, without a doubt, this was one of the most enjoyable track days. For me, I experienced great kindness from many of the staff members. The staff here were more than accommodating. I have never been allowed to get so close to the track to photograph these events. Your track hospitality was very much noticed and appreciated. We most certainly plan on coming back to this track."
--Eva Gillespie and Shane Cochran

"This was my first experience at [Mid-Ohio], and thereby my first experience with the school itself, and I have to say that it was a simply amazing experience. My experience with my instructor for [the track day] was the best I've had yet. The way everything is organized is fantastic, but the time and attention he took in building my confidence and abilities is really what set everything apart. He was patient, enthusiastic, and absurdly knowledgeable about everything on the track, and his personality and positivity were the best I've run into yet. I have a new favorite track, and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for the experience."
--Matt Jarvis
