I don't believe either Limerock nor Englishtown have motorcycle trackdays. Both of their road courses are not fit for motorcycle use due to lack of proper runoff. Not quite sure how you usually go to either of them, unless by going to them you meant for spectating purposes?


In any event Anthony's list above is a good place to start. I'd also add New York Safety Track in Davenport NY

Maybe drag strip at E-Town and car track days at Limerock?

Check out Team Pro-Motion. They offer track days all over the east coast, and offer a great beginner program called A.R.T. Basic, it will help you with your introduction to track riding.

Thumbs up Re: any good race tracks to ride at ?

Ant D and the Chubby Chaser hit the nail on the head. I am gonna
assume that you are from the big LI. NJMP, NYST & Pocono are about
3 hrs or less from LI, depending where you live. TPM and Absolute offer
a very good beginner program. It's mandatory that you take the beginner
class regardless of experience. The class teaches you how to ride on the track.
WE all have taken it. Many of the guys on here are coaches or racers or crashers( just kidding lol)! You have come to the right place! Riding the track
is an eye opening experience and very addictive for sure.
