Riders are separated into groups based on experience, and each group is given one 20 minute session of track time per hour.
Level 3 – :00 – :20 of every hour
Riders and racers with several years of experience. In order to ride in this group, you should be able to hold consistent and safe lines. We expect that you can do sub-1:40 laptimes at Pacific Raceways. Safety is extremely important to us, therefor no bikes under 600cc are allowed in this group.
Level 2 – :20 – :40 of every hour
Riders will some track experience. Riders in this group must be able to follow proper lines, and maintain a margin of safety in their riding. Instruction is provided.
Level 1 – :40 – :00 of every hour
Riders with little to no track experience. If this is your first time on the track, regardless of how long you’ve been riding, this is the group for you. Extra instruction is given to riders in this group, with the goal of making everyone safer and more comfortable on the track.
Level 1 – Novice School – Classroom sessions each hour
Recommended for first-time track riders. The Novice School focuses on the fundamentals of riding your motorcycle at speed. We like to think of it as the next step to take after completing the MSF Standard and/or Advanced courses. It’s a great way to learn about the capabilities of your motorcycle at freeway speeds, not parking lot speeds. We match up students to dedicated instructors and combine a classroom setting with on-track instruction.
- Track overview, entrance & exit procedures
- Safety and etiquette, flag procedures
- Passing guidelines
- Subsequent sessions throughout the day will cover more advanced topics like reference points, braking, body position and more.
Level 2 – Intermediate School – Classroom sessions each hour
The OPRT Intermediate School is for riders registered for the Level 2 session, and who are more comfortable on the track and are interested in further improving their skills.
- Intermediate School focuses on more advanced techniques that help the rider achieve greater speed, safer riding and can also help the rider lower their laptimes. Topics are more in-depth and include:
- Proper body positioning
- Suspension setup and adjustment
- Advanced braking techniques
- Reference points
- Line selection
- and more
