    5th Annual COG Sport Touring School
    This annual event is designed to be educational and fun. The training is individual enough that newer riders can learn new skills, while seasoned riders capitalize upon their existing skill-sets.  This track was designed with large safe runoffs.  Void of cars, intersections, trees and guardrails you will be able to implement new concepts from the classroom with the safety of a purpose-built beginners’ track.  You will be coached on the track where you will practice the theories taught in the classroom.  This format enables practicing new concepts like trail braking, late apex cornering, and hanging off.  These are the theories books are written about.

    Skill comes first, speed comes later. You have to slow down if you want to go fast. Prior years event: https://youtu.be/tQuTk4sIh1s

    The first 10 sign-ups will receive $15 off their registration!  

    What This Is
    This is an advanced rider training course for those looking to learn more than public roadways can safely permit.  Certificates will be issued to participants who safely complete this course.  Check with your insurance company for insurance discounts.

    What This Is Not
    This is NOT racing school.  While this does take place at a beginner’s racetrack, this is not race school, and racing will not take place at this event.

    Who Should Attend
    If you have more fun in the turns than you do on the straights... If you get that Zen feeling when you’ve mastered your favorite road...or if you have ever scared yourself... Then this event is for you.  You will have a former CCS/WERA licensed racer teaching in the classroom, and there will be licensed racers coaching in on track.  They have mastered the concepts you will be learning.

    Spectators (family and friends) are encouraged to come.  The gate fee is $10/person (children under 12 free) for the weekend, and includes camping for the whole weekend.

    Rider Requirements

    • Helmet - Undamaged, DOT full face helmet with face shield.  No flip-up (modular) helmets.
    • Riding Boots - Must cover the ankles. Rentals: $30
    • Riding Gloves - Gloves must cover entire hand and extend over the wrist Rentals: $10
    • Leather Suits - Leather suits may be one piece or two piece that zips together (made of leather ONLY).  Rentals: $60

    Bike Requirements
    Your tires should be 75% new. All glass and lights must be covered with blue painters’ tape (available at Home Depot/Lowe's/Amazon/eBay), and there must be no leaks.  You can bring whatever bike you want.  Contact Douglas Re (douglasjre@gmail.com) if you have questions about your bike.

    Track Maps
    It is best to memorize the track by drawing the map before attending. Learning the track in advance makes it easier to focus on the skills when you get there. Please bring your track map and a pen with you to the school.

    Camping
    Camping for the weekend is included with the gate fee ($10/person payable on arrival).  We plan to have a modest fire each night.  The track gates lock each night at 9:45pm sharp.  We have indoor bathrooms/showers for everybody that are open 24 hrs.  We like you more the more you use them.

    Food concessions are available for breakfast and lunch (Dennis makes a great burger).  Prices are reasonable and the American fare is excellent.  You may also bring your own snacks/meals/BBQ/portable kitchen.  One (1) gallon of drinking water/rider/day is recommended.  Don't forget adult beverages for the evenings. Would we forget that.

    On Saturday night, the plans are to go to the Rodeo restaurant (Authentic Mexican) at Exit 5 Lake Park, GA for dinner.  Then plan on camping trackside Saturday evening.  After all, a campfire and adult beverages taste better at the track you were on!

    Photos
    There will be a professional photographer at the track who will have track photos of you available for your purchase at the end of the day. 

    Arrival - Friday Afternoon
    You need to get to the track Friday afternoon. We will then do the well known "track walk" approximately 45 minutes before sunset. Trust me, you will get a workout mentally and physically. Come with a clear head and be prepared to work hard.
