Signed up for 3:16 track days in March at cresson, not really knowing what to expect. Once arriving I was greeted by and pointed in the right direction by their staff. Who was very very friendly! The organization is absolutely awesome! The 1hour sessions seemed a bit daunting, but actually turned out really nice! It allowed you plenty of time to work on whatever you were trying to improve on, but also gave you plenty of time in the pits between sessions without feeling rushed. I believe they are changing it to 45min now which I feel will be perfect. Having a very low instructor to rider ratio also was a huge plus! The instructors were fantastic and were there whenever you needed them. Personally my favorite thing about this organization, was what it stands behind. Which isn’t for everyone, but I really enjoyed it! Definitely recommend 3:16, and I will be doing a lot more TDs with them!
MSR Houston was my first track day event and it was really fun. The mentoring for new riders is excellent. After the mentors spent their time helping me to understand the track and the lines it became apparent how to ride on the track and it was fun. Many thanks to Jason and Ignacio for their patience with a beginner. The whole experience was good and i look forward to another track day down the road. Thanks to Ignacio and his group for their great organization.
Just nice. Staff is attentive, atmosphere is laid back.
if you're looking for an amazing trackday experience and really want to advance your skillset on the track regardless of your current skill level, THIS IS THE PLACE! This isnt just another trackday organization, it's a family of people with a mutual love of the sport. Do yourself a favor and book a day and see for youself.
GREAT MENTORS, 3 GOLDEN RULES = MAXIMUM TRACK TIME, SMALL NUMBERS SO NO OVERCROWDING TRACK, Ignacio Pedregon III IS COOL TO BEGIN WITH AND ACTUALLY RIDING ON TRACK WITH HIM AND SEEING HIS PASSION AND LOVE FOR THE SPORT FEELS MORE LIKE A TRACK DAY WITH THE HOMIES. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT ONE!
Double the time on track and nobody really crashes, worth the money. Make sure your fitness is good to take advantage.
Open lesson plan. Great resource if you want to learn something specific or just discover your limits.
I never do reviews but this organization is definitely worth doing it for the first time. 3:16 Trackdays are by far the best way to get faster and have more seat time. They offer quality over quantity, meaning less people on track = safer and little to no down time due to overcrowding. They have race proven mentors not control riders, trust me there is a different ?. My racing has greatly improved this year thanks to their mentors and top notch trackside suspension/tire support. Definitely best bang for your buck even if you are a beginner and never ridden a track or an experienced racer. Thank you 3:16 for being there for our sport, we definitely needed this in our area.
Thanks to 3:16 Trackdays for putting on a great event. This may be long but a thorough review may help others decide to come out or not. I have had to be away from track riding for a few years. Life got super busy and family commitments kept me away. As a result, some of the confidence in my abilities that I once had has be diminished. I also didn't want to come back to an adrenaline filled crash fest. I got on the website and watched the videos and read what was there. I even called Ignacio to see what they were all about. Ignacio does a great job of sending out emails and videos to help people understand what is going to happen and make it less confusing as it can be for new people. Pre-trackday impressions were good. Managed to get loaded up early and arrived at the track the day before while some bikes were still on track. After the track riding was done. My wife and I got to walk the track and take pictures of all the turns. Cresson has changed a bit over the years. The seams in the pavement are not friendly to running parallel. We finished taping up the bike, had dinner, and got some shut eye for the next day. Up at 6 to sign in at 6:30 and tech the bike. The riders' meeting went well. A little long, but the first one of the year normally is. We hopped into pickup trucks and did a track drive/walk and talked about several turns and things to look out for such as seams and bumps. Now 3:16 has a different format than most track days. Only two groups, Love to Ride (beginner to moderate level) and Respect the Craft (more advanced to wicked fast). Each group got a total of three and a half hours of ride time. The first sessions are two 30 minute sessions for each group and then one hour per group for the rest of the day. More thoughts on the format later. The first session was following in a group with a mentor leading the pack. We were shown general lines as well as practiced entering and exiting the track several times. These skill are more important than most people realize. The first session on Cresson on a morning in the 50-degree ranges, can you say "slippery" boys and girls? But this is kind of normal there. Debrief with mentor after the first session then hydrate and get ready to go again. Hour-long session, wow. Holy crap, can I even ride for an hour straight? My goal the first session was to relax and see if I could. Yep, road the whole session and gradually relearned the track and slowly got more heat and grip out of the brand new Dunlop GPR 300 tires that are purpose made for bikes like my Ninja 300. Getting some good reference points and keeping the pace relaxed help get more and more comfortable. A few straightaway throttle junkies were holding me up in some of the turns. Oh well, a trackday not a race. Must pass with respect and give them plenty of room. The attached photos show my progression throughout the day. BTW Blair Hart at Hart Photography does his best to make you look good. (oops can't seem to add photos to the review) A post-ride consult with my mentor and time for some lunch. I may have eaten a little too much at lunch and/or the usual lack of sleep before a trackday caught up with me. The second hour-long session wasn't flowing as well for me though I was still getting more comfortable with the bike. I rode about 40 minutes and called it. Hey, I have an hour and 20-minute break. Time to get out of the leathers and deep breathing/relax/nap time. Get a big drink of water and go out again. Third and final hour-long session. I am putting it all together. Getting corner speeds up. A bit more passing with respect. Rocking and rolling for about 20 minutes. Man, I gotta pee. Hey, hour-long session, why not come in and pee. And I did. Then went back out again and got back up to pace. I went about as fast as I wanted to in most turns. Ok, a few to still work on. With about 15 minutes left the brain started to fade a bit so I called it a day. What an awesome day. I got good feedback from a couple of mentors and a corner worker. Most of the brief red flags were mechanical issues. One rider did have an agricultural experience with no injuries. Overall a very good trackday experience. I would highly recommend 3:16 Trackdays to anyone looking to have fun and improve your riding.
3:16 has a great product. The usefulness of the track time surpasses any other track day organization. The hour long sessions allow plenty of time to get feedback from your mentor and then go back out immediately and work on that feedback. The 4:1 mentor to student ratio is great as well. Very personalized feedback. I had a MotoAmerica racer giving me valuable feedback that immediately dropped my lap times on the subsequent laps. The limited number of slots is also great. No need to be fighting traffic while working around the track. The slight increase in cost is worth the limited roster. 3:16 is a new organization, they are dedicated to customers and strive to deliver a great product. Everyone was great off the track and respectful on the track. In their first official track day, they nailed it. You will not be disappointed with 3:16.
