Layout 13, clockwise, Buttonwillow Raceway.  Link

Remember, this is a day for friends. The only way you are invited is by a friend…. so please be courteous to all riders, of all skill levels.

Open format plan: You can ride all day. We shut down for lunch, 1 hour. The track is open to ride from 9 am to 5 pm unless a stoppage is required for a rider.

As many will be on the track for the first time in Buttonwillow, we will run outside passing rules for the first 2 hours of the day, from 9 am to 11 am.  After 11 am, inside passing is allowed.  We will mark (on the back of helmets) any riders who are C group riders, so you are aware before attempting an inside pass.  Please pass for the comfort of the other rider, not yours.

Camping: Camping will be added for the night before the event.  When arriving at the track, you may have to wait until 5 pm to set up camp for our event the next day. Just ask the gate attendant. If you have an RV and want to rent a spot for power (tell them 30a or 50a) and water, a fee applies. No Dumpsite on the property.  (Last I heard it was ~$25 for the day)

Refunds: If you pay a deposit or a full ticket price, you are eligible for a refund if the track day does not happen. If we cancel or the track cancels the day with no fee, all ticket prices will be refunded minus any credit card fees imposed on me. Weather does not qualify for a refund per the track rules. If the track charges us for anything, it will be deducted evenly before refunds for a canceled day.

Weather: Feb 2017 saw an average of 65 F for the month with a few days of rain. Should be a good month for a track day.  2018 Feb day was COLD but dry.  A great day of riding. 2019 we did get a fair amount of rain, but a few hours of clear skies.  Was a fun day. (For most)

Photo Services: CaliPhotography –  Is expected for the event. See them in the cafe area for offers and pricing.
