Race Track Prep

Our team of track enthusiasts have been attending and organizing events on-track for decades, coming up with a simple but effective set of rules and regulations for you and your bike to follow when attending one of our events.

From bike prep, riding gear requirements, and registration procedures, to rider and spectator conduct requirements, the following pages will explain in detail what is expected so that you can arrive to the track confident and comfortable about your day. Sticking to these simple guidelines is what allows us to provide a safe and fun environment for everyone at our events, resulting in lots of time on track for every rider! It is the responsibility of each participant to be fully aware of the rules and guidelines that follow.



  • All entrants must attend the riders meeting, no exceptions. Riders who DO NOT attend the riders meeting will not be permitted to participate in the event.
  • All riders who are required to participate in the New Rider Orientation must attend a) secondary riders meeting b) their on-track coaching sessions. Riders who fail to complete either of these guidelines will forfeit their trackday.
  • All participants must check in with our registration personnel and sign all waivers to receive the appropriate wristband and registration/safety inspection sticker.
  • You may be asked to show personal Identification at Registration. Please bring photo I.D with you.
  • We ask that you inform our registration staff of any and all medical conditions that you have.
  • The supplied wristband must be worn at all times during the event to be allowed on track and hot pit lane. You may be asked to show the wristband at any time throughout the event.
  • The registration/safety inspection sticker must be adhered to the front fender or the middle of the front upper fairing only, prior to arriving at safety inspection.
  • All riders MUST affix a Medical Information Carrier on the rear left of their helmet. One carrier per rider will be supplied by Pro 6 Cycle. Additional carriers will be available for purchase.
  • All motorcycles MUST pass safety inspection prior to admission on the track. If your bike does not pass safety inspection, you will NOT receive a refund. It is your responsibility to ensure your motorcycle is suitable for a day of track riding before registering for the event
  • All motorcycles must pass sound inspection based on guidelines as put forth by the track. If your bike does not pass sound inspection, you will NOT receive a refund. Please check the website of the facility at which the event you are attending is being held for information regarding sound inspection.
  • In the event of a crash, you must pass safety inspection on the motorcycle before being allowed re-entry to the track.
  • All motorcycles MUST display the number chosen by the rider in their rider profile on the front and both sides of the rear of the motorcycle. The number must be easily seen and distinguishable from a distance (8” numbers are recommended). If your numbers are not identifiable and/or do not match that which you have selected within your profile you will not be permitted to enter the track.
  • All Riders must wear appropriate riding gear.
  • All gear must be free from tears, exposed seams, excessive wear, age or damage.
  • Leathers: Full one piece or two-piece (zip completely around) motorcycle leather suits only. NO Nylon or Kevlar only construction suits will be allowed.

  • The use of drugs will not be tolerated. Anyone found using drugs during our trackday will be reported to the Police.
  • Aggressive behaviour, physical or verbal confrontation will not be tolerated and anyone exhibiting such behaviour will be immediately removed from the event.
  • Any rider who either must switch bikes for mechanical reasons, or is just “trying a friend’s bike for the session” MUST inform Pro 6 Cycle staff PRIOR to attempting to enter the track. Any rider who fails to do so and causes un-do stress to the marshals and Pro 6 Cycle staff will forfeit the remainder of their event. It is imperative for the safety of yourself and others that we know who is on which bike on track at all times.
  • Any participant who switches or rides in a group he/she is not registered without first receiving approval from Pro 6 Cycle staff will forfeit their day, will be asked to leave for the day and will be given NO refund.

Pro 6 Cycle VIP events operate at select days during the season. Many elements are the same as our regular events except for a few special qualities:

  • VIP events are run open track; there are not 3 groups. All riders are free to come and go on the track as they please. We do break 1 hour for lunch as well as two fifteen minute marshal breaks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
  • VIP events are restricted to experienced Pro 6 Cycle trackday clients. Our general rule of thumb is that we need to know you. This means that you have done enough events with us that we know your name, how you ride, and that you are a safe and skilled enough rider to blend into the day. Riders who do not meet these criteria are still welcome to contact us if they wish to participate but must provide a reference from other reputable organizations.
  • Riders must also be experienced “Red” or “Yellow” group riders and must meet or ride below a certain lap time which will be deemed appropriate by Pro 6 Cycle staff. Please include an average lap time at the track in which you are requesting to participate at within your email request.
  • Riders must have ridden a minimum 5 trackdays at the specific track in which they wish to participate in the VIP, in addition to the above criteria.

Trackside emergency medical service and marshaling are also included.

Trackside tire service by Pro 6 Cycle, suspension service by Propulsion Racing, and any other trackside special event service provided by Pro 6 Cycle and its partners are also available to the client.
