    Default Grattan in 09?

    Anyone planning on doing a track day at Grattan this year? I'm seriously considering doing my first one down there. I hear that its a pretty techincal course with lots of twists and elevation changes. Looks like from Bobs post back in July that he had a blast.

    I've always wanted to do one so the other day I called Apex2Apex and spoke with Eric(I think). He said that as it stands right now they won't be doing any track days at Grattan this year. He said something about STT forcing them out of Grattan and that I would have to go through them if I wanted a track day there. Any STT members (or former members) with opinions good or bad?

    Any advice for a first timer would be greatly appreciated also.
    Thanks

    I'm sure Berto will once he gets a Supermoto. I don't have a track bike any more so I'm out.

    Well that sucks aboit STT... shoot... i hope they fail and A2A gets to get back in there.

    I would totally do a track day with you this season. But I have to say pending on cost. If STT has exclusive rights, they may jack up prices.

    There is Gingerman in South Haven also... remember that... and that track is about $100-130 i think... or it was a couple of years ago.
