Team Chicago School

Does anyone know if a date has been released for the annual Team Chicago Racing School?

Thanks,

Bill Taborn

I know I'm sounding like a NASCAR fan here , but we used go just to watch the crashes in the morning!

By about lunch Darwin has thinned the herds and it's safer to go out.

Yes, it's ugly at that time of day. The bike won't fire, the tires won't stick, and my leathers are stiff.

Bill,

I see you are in Toledo, we're in Delta. Do you have a group you attend track days and/or race with?

Hi, Monte.

Last year I only did one track date and one race(mechanical DNS, go figure). A couple groups are running track dates. I know that you're familiar with both groups, at least somewhat. Toledo Sport Bike Riders and Trackaholics are going to run some dates that I might attend. I haven't been to a STT date since you and Bonnie took it over from the Hurley brothers. Hopefully I'll make a date.

Thanks for asking, Sir.

Our Grattan and GingerMan LED events are only $135 and we limit them to 40 riders max. We run two groups with 30 minute sessions. That's 50% more track time and 50% less riders for the same money. Take a look at our website if you have a sec.

Tracy,

Can I have you send me a form if I send you a self addressed stamped envelope or have you fax one to me?
