There Will Be Three Rider Groups Defined As:

Group 1:  Street Group (Limited to 25 Participants) - This group is for street riders with little or no track experience.  Passing is not allowed in the corners, and plenty of room must be left when passing on the straights.  All riders must demonstrate good riding ability.  Experienced riders will be available for help as needed.  Two-up riders will be allowed in this group after the first session.

Group 2:  Intermediate Group (Limited to 25 Participants) - This group is for experienced street riders who have the adequate skill level required.  Increased speeds and passing only on straights or the outside of turns with extreme caution (more than 3 foot clearance).  NO passing on the inside and absolutely NO close passing – enforced very strictly.

Group 3:  Advance Group (Limited to 35 Participants) - This group is for riders who are licensed road racers, are known to the organizer to have a high level of skill or have prior permission.  Very spirited pace, riding is unrestricted, but very close passes, obvious racing, poor sportsmanship, or contact are not permitted.

Required Safety Gear and Technical Inspection Requirements:  Riders from all groups are required to have Snell or DOT approved full coverage helmets, full coverage gloves that cover the wrist cuff, and boots that cover ankle and ankle cuffs.  Street group riders must have a leather or heavy textile motorcycle jacket and similar pants (no jeans) as a minimum, preferably with armor, and must zip-together. “mesh” or “free air” equipment is not allowed. Intermediate & advance riders must have full coverage leather suits (one piece or zip together two piece suits), with armor.  All riding equipment must be in very good condition.  This will be enforced very strictly.
