Question about BHF 7/1

Is this still happening or is it just full and that's why it isn't on their website anymore?

I have a question about the tech inspection. "Safety wire kickstand or remove" is this required for the novice group?

Also, would this trackday be a good for a beginner? It would be my second trackday (my first was gingerman with stt)

You can safety wire the kickstand, zip tie it or remove it. Wednesday trackdays at Blackhawk are great for newbies.

Yes you have to have the kick stand tied up in all groups. This would be a great trackday for a beginner.

If you bring 7 zip ties, you should be fine.

Just zip tie it before each session, and cut open the zip tie afterwards.

Blackhawk days are not run in groups in the novice group, but if you ask any of the coaches for help, they will be glad to help you out and show you around. Grab a coach for the first session, so you can learn the line. Make sure you tell them that it's your second track day and that you haven't been at Blackhawk before.

You'll have a lot of fun!

No track org allows that to my knowledge. You need to have one piece, or two pice that have full circumference zippers (not just the small zipper in the back)

Do these days generally fill up? I'd like to go but need to get some things together before I commit to going so I need to wait to sign up. I'm hoping there will be a spot for me.

No Jordan, they have the race licensing clinics on separate days. I don't think Visionsports is conducting any clinics this year. Check out Learning Curves:

It doesn't look like it's sold out. Check out my link above..

But it does sell out generally. If the intermediate is too big, they split it into two and run 4 groups, 15 min each.
