Thompson Motorsports Park 6/15

Looking forward to my first track day at Thompson Motorsports Park in Connecticut next Monday the 15th. Anybody else going to be there or been there and have any good tips?

The slight hill off of turn 10 going down the straight looks like a great place for a high side or a dangerous wheelie...

The Monday track day was very WET. Still Fun learning the racing lines at a slower speed though. Cost was $240 for the day plus gas. Hotel in Dayville was $125 after taxes for the wife and 3 kids to sleep comfortably. Will be trying Palmer this summer too!

Nice to see folks in here in New England. I'm trying like hell to get to a day at Thompson and Palmer.. I only have an s10 pickup so taking everything is proving difficult.. May need a sprinter type or bigger truck with trailer or something cuz I can barely fit the bike and the ramps that get it in the truck lol I at least need lawn chair a tent thing to block sun, cooler etc never mind crap for bike.. Leathers boots helmet etc

I'm curious what providers you guys use as I didn't think Tony's, fishtail or penguin had thompsons on 15th

I'm actually doing research on pulling fuses and duct clamping oil filter so it can't loosen up. I need to get front fork stands to do that (I hope) though as there isn't enough room without. I'm trying to make it for ttd 12,13 at thompsons those are some cool pics I know it rained at razee day...

I used TTD. Good organization with great instructors and their bike prep is Simple, yet effective.

Rent a trailer from uhaul, $25 a day for a 5x9 with ramp which is HUGE !


Got my purchased photo, un watermarked!

It sucked for sure but I'm pretty confident in the rain. Also I lean off the bike pretty far anyway so I don't have to Lean the bike itself as much and that helped a lot in the rain! On the plus side, it was open session all day and I got like 2 1/2 hours of track time and learned the lines very well!
