As a relative newbie to riding I feel there is a need for a comprehensive guide to the track days available in Victoria. So follow me as I compile my search results based on skill level and wallet opening efforts…
2 types – Weekend Heroes vs Weekday Heroes
If you have a dedicated track bike your are part of a club, have a track licence, sufficient means of transportation and supplies then you’re a Weekend Hero. Weeknights are not spent inside the house. This guide is not for you. Yet.
If your bike is road register-able then you’re a Weekday Hero. You have chosen the most cost- and time-effective route. This is who the results are aimed at.
3 tracks – Broadford, Winton and the holy Phillip Island
All 3 require full leathers (PI requires a one piece only) and a bike in road worthy condition.
B – Practice Days – $125 + $25/$100 licence
B – Champion Ride Days – $140/$170 (also available on Red Balloon and Adrenalin but only at $169)http://championsridedays.com.au/portal/component/option,com_eventman/
B – Honda Hire Track Day – $665 https://www.redballoon.com.au/driving-experiences/motorbike-rides/honda-motorcycle-hire-and-track-day-vic
W – Test n Tune – $150 + $50 licence http://www.wintonraceway.com.au/drive/test
PI – Ride Days – $230 http://m.phillipislandridedays.com.au/pird_events
Now all of this would be to no avail if you don’t know how to get the most from your bike:
B – Champion Coaching – $290/$320 (also on Red Balloon) http://championsridedays.com.au/portal/content/view/24/105/
B – Stay Upright – $445 https://www.stayupright.com.au/course-calendar-VIC

HART offer a course for $295 but racetrack is unknown. You must complete levels 1 ($215) & 2 ($310) first though.
