FASTRACK RIDERS UPDATE 05-27-08
Fastrack Riders next event is Monday, June 9th at Willow
Springs on the 2.5 mile 9 turn Road Course. Positions are
still available in all levels with the price being only $155
per rider. All riders will get an AMB Timing Transponder
installed on your bike for the day so you will get your lap
times about fifteen minutes after each hourís riding

Effective August 1, 2008 Fastrack Riders will require all
motorcycles to have their drain plugs and oil filters safety
wired. Just visit our website and check under the FAQ
section question number 8

to pictures showing in excellent detail how this should be
done. Your local dealership can do this for you as well.
Pre drilled drain plugs are available through Lockhart
Phillips or possibly your local dealer. SILICONE WILL NOT
If you change your own oil and filter, do not forget to
remove the old gasket or O ring before installing your new
filter! If you do not remove it, it will leak!
Many riders are asking why Fastrack Riders is now requiring
this additional step be performed on their bike. This is
actually a direct result of too many riders having either
their drain plug or oil filter come lose and leak oil onto
the track. Each oil down takes in the range of forty five
minutes to an hour and a half to clean up costing everyone
in attendance to lose track time.
It has come to our attention several riders feel they do not
have to attend the mandatory riders meeting. NOT TRUE!
Everyone that is riding that day must attend the Riders
Meeting! Track conditions, rule changes, and other
important safety information is shared in each meeting and
sometimes this information changes. If you miss the 8:00 AM
meeting the second riders meeting is at 10:00 AM so you will
not get on the track till the 11:00 AM rotation.
Fastrack Riders has an almost new Yamaha 3000 generator for
sale. If you are interested, please drop us an e-mail. It
has only been used twice and is in perfect operating order.
Recently we improved the mounting system for the AMB Timing
Transponder brackets switching from zip ties to a Velcro
patch. We are asking all riders to please leave the Velcro
patch on their bike if they can to speed up tech at future
events. The goal is to someday have only twenty five
percent of the riders needing the patch. This process is
less likely to damage your bike, is a faster process, and
the transponder can be placed in a safer location which
might prevent a rider from someday having to purchase a
transponder that was damaged in a crash! Thanks in advance
for your help!
If a rider is caught allowing someone not signed up for an
event to ride their bike, the bike will be confiscated, they
will be escorted from the track by security, and they will
be banned from riding at five different track day
organizations! This is a liability and an insurance issue
and has a negative impact on all track day organizations!
