Track day was organized like a Swiss watch. Throughout the day we provided cold drinks and snacks.
The schedule was perfect.
The mentors was wonderful.
Super recommend AAA+++
Absolute blast with the group! First track day. Intimidating up until arrival. Once I met up with friends and met the mentor, all was good. First few laps on the track had me nervous and getting used to the environment, but our Mentor (Suneeta) walked us through the process. After the first session I was ready to spread my wings and get out there. Suneeta was there to answer any questions and/or provide feedback. Definitely increased my riding skills and had so much fun doing so! Great organized track day with....plenty of track time! -
So this was my first track day. My budy and I decided to take up this great hobby. I was so impressed with the feel of the experience. it was like a group of guys and girls said "let's go to the track". Our mentors were knowledgeable and thorough. They pulled no punches for the sake of our growth. The consistent communication from Ignocio, felt welcoming. Arriving, I knew what the day was going to Intel. I can't wait until the next event. -
July 5th was my first time with 3:16 and first time at COTA and one of the best experiences ever!!
The 3:16 crew did an amazing job working through all of the ever fluid COVID changes in order to make it all happen.
The mentors were fantastic and always willing to work with you and share wisdom. Thank you Paul and Marquis for everything!!
I even went the extra mile and got my CMRA license.
There was always someone walking around handing out cold water and electrolytes keeping us hydrated. Food trucks and vendors were onsite which was a big bonus!
Thank you guys for everything and looking forward to MSRH. -
Rode with 3:16 yesterday at MSR Cresson. Fantastic experience! It was a great combination of instructor feedback + self-paced learning. I’ve ridden with quite a few track day orgs, and here are some high points of 3:16:
1) They are a tick more expensive, BUT they provide mentors at a 1:4 teacher:student ratio, the mentors seek out their students after the ride (thanks, Cosmo!), and the org provides a plethora of snacks. They are also willing to go get food for you if you need it.
2) This is the first org I’ve ridden with that does a comprehensive track walk with an expert racer. We went to the critical areas of the track and learned the best bike placement, visual markers/landmarks, and problematic areas.
3) Great people! I’ve never had a bad experience with people at the track, and this org continued that tradition and was “all in” when it came to rider satisfaction and team attentiveness. I took my neighbor, a new rider, and so many instructors came up to him asking how he was doing and giving him great feedback. Definitely shows this org has great pride in bringing up people in this sport.
4) Courteousness and Respect! I’ve been “that guy” and I’ve also almost been taken out by “that guy.” There were very few instances of foolishness on the track and the message to all was “respect your fellow riders.” I truly feel people took it to heart because I never felt disrespected on the track, or they people were being reckless, even in the group with varying skill levels.
Room for improvement:
The session were an hour long....and in 97-deg heat, I lasted about 20-30 minutes at semi-race pace. Maybe 30 minute sessions on very hot days might benefit the crowd.
Great experience with a solid faith-based trackday org that cares about its patrons and their experience!
Big thanks to Ignacio and his team, as well as my mentor, Cosmo! -
Great mentors and just really good people. Got more COTA than I could handle (never thought that was possible). Riding structure and time was perfect. Mentors totally exceeded expectations. Had Ignacio the first day and there is not a better person to learn the track with. Next day moved on to Anthony Miller and COTA got real - real fast! Progressed more than I thought possible in one day, all while have insane fun. I still got my head up looking waaayyyy ahead while I type this. You guys are the best.

Five stars! Love this organization and all they do for the track community. They listen to the riders’ needs and go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome. Most importantly, it’s a safe environment with plenty of instructors, mentors, and family-like friends to help answer questions and improve your skills. -
I attended my first 3:16 event (@Circuit of the Americas) at the recommendation of some much more experienced riders.
I received personal attention from Ignacio leading up to the event regarding my issues, as well as a detailed set of emails that set excellent expectations. The event was really well thought out to address COVID, as well as general organization.
I was coached by Andy, and had huge breakthroughs in my pace and confidence on a number of areas. It was a real privilege to learn from such an experienced coach, I had all of my questions answered as well as very applicable feedback.
Most importantly, I got literally more track time than I could handle! I probably wouldn't have made it half the day without the cool shade provided by the garages, much better than a canopy in a parking lot in the TX summer sun! -
Had an awesome opportunity to join 3:16 Track Days for a day out at COTA. The entire day was well planned out and it was obvious how hard Ignacio and all of his crew worked to make the day special. If you are thinking of doing a track day I highly recommend this organization, you will have a blast. -
i had a gret time and learned very much about the racing line with my mentor marquis davis. i was actually able to keep up with fast riders just because i knew a few little tricks about the line. thats what i really took from the time i spent there. they kept us hydrated and happy with ac water and electolyte stuff too! -
