central florida track day?

I have never been to the track before and would like to get my feet wet a little. I don't know of any place to go in my area at the moment. so does anyone know a place to go and or things to do to prep?

Jennings GP.......it's about a 3 hour drive from Daytona. Get a trailer, rent a trailer, hook up with some friends with a trailer and head up there for the day. 3 hours is a pretty reasonable drive (my home track NJMP is about 2.5 from me).

You also have another choice, PBIR which is in Palm Beach! Might be even less drive time from Daytona! Go to FloridaTrackdays.com, they do a lot of trackday events there!

You also can ride Daytona with Team Hammer on 10/17! I highly suggest you give it a try since it's something every rider/racer should do at least once!

Re: central florida track day?

I should be going there sometime this summer for a trackday. I like to sleep in my van, with a mosquito net for protection. I looked at their website, and no mention of camping facilities. Is there electrical power? Showers?

I have a Honda 2000 EU for tire warmers and if necessary, coffee in the morning. If no camping, what accommodations are available nearby?

OP, I've been wanting to give a track day a try too. Maybe Sebring does them? I'm over on the west coast south of Tampa
