I have been riding sport bikes since 2009 but had never experienced the track until the MSRH event on 8/3/19 and I am so thankful my first trackday was with 3:16 Trackdays. I actually won the track day at a TXSR kickoff event so that made the experience even more special. For a first time track rider I couldn’t have asked for a better organization to learn the ropes. From the drop off the night before to the check in the next day and the on/off track coaching my entire experience is one I’ll never forget. I actually roped in another street riding buddy of mine and we can’t wait to go back to MSRH for the event in September. Ignacio has put together a first class organization that I would recommend to anyone, but especially those who are new to the track experience.

Really looking forward to the new season. The long sessions are especially great if you're practicing for endurance racing and very helpful for practicing technique as you can pit out and review with an instructor and get back at it without feeling rushed that your session is about to end. Plenty of time for both riding and rest. Oh, and red flags?.... not such a popular thing😉

Great time with multiple coaches available for advice! Hydrate and prepare yourself mentally/physically for the heat. Definitely will attend many more!

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.

Great group of people, riders, coaching, management of the event was well run , on a schedule so you dont miss any sessions because you could not understand the loudspeakers, pointers given by other riders were spot on, very humble group, very skilled riders. Ignacio and wife were very nice. Lots of track time.

3:16 track days put on an awesome event at MSR. Ignacio is one of a kind, he personally helped me get the right gear i needed for the track day. I was able to work with his mentor Jason and learned a lot and had plenty of track time. Thank you all for an amazing experience! A+++

Double the time on track and nobody really crashes, worth the money. Make sure your fitness is good to take advantage.

Very well run with a relaxed atmosphere. The track walk gave really good advice from top notch riders providing their personal perspective. Mentors were great providing tips to improve my riding tailored to me. 4 hours of seat time with no classes and limited numbers of riders made for a fantastic day!

316 track days is so awesome! We had a downpour that swamped the track this past weekend out at MSRH. was past my ankles in some spots!😳😳 The 316 team was so understanding that they decided to run till 7pm to make up for the lost time! ❤❤ I've never seen an organization that puts in so much time, understanding, help, and forethought to their programs to give each one of the riders showing up the best environment to succeed. Are wanting to improve your skills in every day riding track or street? They have some of the best mentors to help you where you want to be. Are looking for the most seat time you can get your hands on? They have 30min to an hour (YES! you read that correct. Hour!!! 😁) depending on track and course you want to take. Are you wanting a fun environment to get out and try the track? 316 has one of the most relaxed, ride your time environments I've ever experienced in my 5 years riding the track. Join the 316 track day team at one of the tracks. You'll be glad you did. From me and so many others, we can't thank everyone at 316 enough for everything that you do for us! Can't wait to get out there with everyone again! 😁
