Sign up now before it sells out. I can't wait for this trip. I have always wanted to ride there!

Anyone have a SV for me?

Oh wait, I don't have money for this addiction. Where is there a track day anonymous program? I gotta quit, my bank won't let me continue.

The answer is yes, we're riding there after unloading the track bikes from the trailers.

Riding to the track is not a recommended option if you are planning on riding ON the track. Works great for spectators.

We'll be taking trailers. LOTS of them

It's suuuuuper fun. If you have to skip a couple local events to make it to Mid-Ohio, it's TOTALLY worth it. Easily my favorite track. (I have not been to Barber or VIR)

Word of caution - like jkrueger said, the sealer patches are the suck, and there's sealer in... well, every corner. If it's cold and damp in the morning it will be SLICK. If it rains? GET OFF THE TRACK. The surface is like ice in the wet. If it's warm and dry? Game on!
