  • Bring out the little bikes 2017 - USAIR Shawano



    I expect to have my Z125 build wrapped up soon so I went to take a look at the schedule to see which weekend days are open. Looks pretty well booked but there is an open weekend August 26 and 27. Anyone up for some kart track action? Maybe plan on Saturday the 26 with Sunday as a backup day should we get rain on Sat. No local CCS races or track days that weekend that I can see.

    Aside from that, looks like September 23 and 24 is open also.

    Newbies to the kart track, check out our discussion from last year. Some good info there about prepping bikes and requirements. Some good videos in that thread too.

    If we get a nice sized group, let's call ahead the day before to let them know we are coming. That would give them time to get the track sweeper out to clean up rubber remains after the karts or drifters there before us.

    I'm not really sure what to expect riding a Z125 around the track, but I'm pretty certain is will be fun.

    Sound off if you are in!

      Zaph,
      Need to talk to you about that track. I called to get rental pricing but I don't know much about the overall layout, like buildings, food and such. I want to run my class there next season.

        Would be a great place to hold a class. Not much for amenities though - no food or drink, bring your own. They have bathrooms and showers by the registration building There is a tech building, which is really just a big empty building like any tech shed. There is also a 2 story building at the start/finish line that has air conditioning and some tables. You would have to ask to be sure, but I think they may allow you to use that if you have purchased the whole track for a day. Also, maybe important for an event, the Shawano hospital is a full 24 hr emergency center and is 5 minutes from the track. I don't think anyone ever feels the need to hire ambulances for events there.

        People use that track for training and events all the time. A couple local police departments conduct driving schools there. This weekend is Lightning on the Wolf Supermoto Racing, and there is a supermoto performance class scheduled too. I may go spectate since supermoto was my true calling years back.

          I would like to attend the Aug 26 and 27 date as well. I believe the Sept date conflicts with the Blackhawk CCS event.

            This sounds fun! I'll try to keep free that weekend to go ride the 250.

              Update:

              Well, shit. I just checked the schedule and saw that someone reserved the track on the 26th for a 4 hour private event. They have it from 10am to 2pm.

              Our options are to go after the event, or we can shoot for the 27th now. Anyone have a preference?

              If we go after 2pm, they might give us a discount for a partial day and we could roll in at 1 and be ready to take the track at 2.

              If we decide on the 27th, I think I will call and see if they intend to keep that date open. I'm ok with either way. Any comments?

                I'm free either day, so doesn't matter to me.

                    Still interested. Would prefer to ride a full Sunday over a partial Saturday. I have some work to do on the bike before then.

                      How about we plan on Sunday, and keep Saturday as an alternate if it looks like rain is going to roll in on Sunday.

                      a half day with no rain beats a full day with rain. If I remember, a partial day is $25 or something like that.

                      And now for the sucky part, to try on my Leathers which I haven't put on in 8 months. I'm pretty sure I have more gut than I had back then.

                      My 125 is pretty much ready.

                          I am seriously thinking about coming also. I just ordered sumo wheels for the little boys Pitster Pro. Need to do some work on the bike though. Like put the front forks on! What time on Sunday do you want to start?

                              I would be happy with Saturday afternoon, 4 hours would be a good session. If things go well possibly we could return on Sunday afternoon. I will clean the bike up and get ready. Expect duct tape
