Florida Track Days
Tony West - Operator/Founder
Florida Trackdays was created to give motorcycle riders a place a ride their bike in a fashion in which they were designed to do. We provide a safe controlled environment at world Class facilities such as Homestead Miami Speedway and Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR) with instructors who are current or former racers with years of track experience. We do this thru classroom inst ruction and riding groups catered to individual rider ability.
With increasing development in Florida and the traffic that accompanies it, motorcyclists are facing a growing riskwhen taking their bikes on the street . My goal is to give motorcycle riders a place to take their street and race bikes with minimal modifications and have a great time on the tra ck. Our t rack days are open to riders of all skills levels. We provide FREE instruction on and off the track with our classroom setting. Our track days are structured upon rider ability. We do this by breaking up into groups: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. We purposely keep the number of riders in each group low in order to keep the track day experiences as fun as possible. Please refer to our Track Day Forum or please contact Tony directly with any questions you may have.
