    I am seeking riders in Shanghai, and surrounding provinces and cities, who would like to ride on the Shanghai International Circuit (F1 circuit). An occasion to test the max potential of your motorcycle in a safe environment, to improve your riding skills and/or hopefully to learn and practice the sport of road racing onto a MotoGP grade international circuit.

    We meet up monthly and organize our own open track days for motorcycles. On a typical track day, riders meet up at the F1 circuit in early morning, enjoy 3 to 4 riding sessions of 20min each during the day. Other than that, we enjoy chatting, sharing riding experiences, tuning our bikes, seeing some of the fastest machines, supercars/exotic cars and superbikes in the region, etc etc! Plenty to do for the motorsport fans out there (a Costa Coffee with sofas and wifi is on site if you dare to become bored!).

    The dayís sessions are breakdown into 3 categories (touring cars, formula cars, and motorcycles). Motorcycles alone gets minimum 3 sessions per day but can sometimes get 2 sessions in the morning and 2 sessions in the afternoon (4 total). All depending if we are many riders or not. The cost of one (20min) session is RMB200 (per person). This allows you to ride your motorcycle on the circuit 3 or 4 times in one day for a period of 20min each time (-or- 8 laps of 2m30s each -or- 45km).

    Riders will have access to a pit garage which include all the necessary facilities (toilet, running water, resting area, changing room, electricity and security). The cost of the pit garage is RMB1,000 per day and shared among the riders attending the track day (e.g. 10 riders = RMB100 each per day for pit rental). Friends, families, kids, photographs are allowed in the pit garages and lane at no extra cost.

    Basic track riding coaching, do & donít, tips & tricks, recon laps & race lines will be provided for the first time riders for FREE. We also have experienced road racers on site with us who are always more than happy to share their extreme riding secrets and techniques. Also a perfect occasion to learn about correctly setting up your suspension for your weight and riding style, adjusting foot and hand controls, and how to get the most out of your motorcycle.

    We can advise on transport to and from the circuit, accommodation (hotel), offer pit rental and provide track-session tickets. We also have a permanent storage area at the circuit where we keep our track bikes if, like some of us, you would like to keep your motorcycle(s) & gears on site for the season (if road racing is what you wish to pursue as a sport in Shanghai!).

    To participate, you need: your own motorcycle, tires and brakes in good condition, protection gears e.g. helmet, gloves, boots, one or two piece leather suit, and about RMB1,000 for a full day of pure fun. Youíll also need a good night sleep before and after your track day event!

    Feel free to contact (PM) me for additional details or for my mobby/email contact. Our next track day is on the weekend of February 19th and 20th. Hurry up, places are limited!

    Thanks and looking forward seeing you on the circuit soon.

    Man that seems really amazing! I know they have something similar at Barbers in the states but I've never been able to try it. Still, I doubt I'll be able to get a chance to try that any time this year.

    Are motorcycle and suite rentals also possible?

    G'Day,

    Great day out at the F1 track, interesting bikes and cars. Really need to get ready for next years track-days!
    The F1 Circuit track-days are worth a visit if you have not been yet, forget the Tinama crap-days!

    An other great day indeed.
    Had a quick ride with TB-Racing on his brand new Ducati Multistrada to the track, can't wait to see that bike there next year :).

    Some pics of the last 2 events.
    And it is free, you can always come have a look, even if you don't ride yourself.
