Leaving bike at track?

I noticed a few bikes at Autobahn a few weeks ago that were sitting untouched on Sunday and then found out guys were leaving them there from Saturday when they were there till the Monday full course day. Is this usually done and ok to do? I'll be at Autobahn on Saturday and Sunday...wouldn't mind leaving it and my trailer there overnight. I've seen some bikes sort of gated off with the use of the pop up tents and collapsing those down a little. Does this usually vary from track to track or org to org?

Typically, things are safe overnight. The reason for the canopy being lowered and tied down with straps is to protect the canopy from wind damage.

I leave my trailer, bike and canopy at the track whenever possible on Saturday night. Saves a lot of repacking/unpacking.

I feel a lot better leaving it at the track than I would having it outside of many Joliet area hotels.

I leave mine overnight whenever possible. In fact, I drop the trailer the night before the event whenever I can.
