What is the schedule like for a track weekend?
- Riding starts around 10am on Saturday, after we've done all the sign-ups and had a meeting to explain the rules. Sunday, we try to start closer to 9am to maximize track time.
- The first meet-up of the year is a practice weekend, where there are no timings. Participants are given lots of track time to play and remember the course!
- The following weekends have practice laps until early afternoon, and then we run time trials.
- Each rider is given an RFID tag to put on his/her motorcycle that is read by the timing system. RFID tags are included in the price of sign-up, but if a rider doesn't wish to record any times or participate in the time trials, it is an option not to purchase one and the sign up price is $5 less.
- During practice, everybody is allowed on the track at the same time, though we split practice sessions into two groups based on lap times. During timings, riders are sent out one at a time in groups of 6 or less with a fair amount of space between them.
- All prices listed include $5 for the RFID tag
- Practice weekend: 1 Day - $75
2 Day - $90
- Full weekend: 1 Day - $85
2 Day - $110
- Multiple bikes: $85 per extra motorcycle
- There is no charge for extra bikes on practice weekends
- Members of the Fairbanks Racing Lions receive a $10 discount.
- We require all riders to wear helmet, full leathers, boots, and gloves. Here are a couple of examples:
- We do not require any modifications to motorcycles, and we have a wide range of bike brands, sizes, and styles.
- Most racers camp in the pits area at the track. We have porta-potties and a dumpster on site. For those who don't want to camp, there are a few hotels in Tok, which is about 10 miles away. Fast Eddie's is the most popular, so it gets booked up quickly.
- The races are held at the DNR Air Tanker Base near the village of Tanacross.
