Get your motor running and head your bike out on the highway toward the Homestead Miami Speedway this Sunday, August 18, 2019 for this year’s Florida Track Day! Florida Track Days are a special type of Sunday joyride for motorcycle riders. Yet instead of having to worry about speed limits, law enforcement, other automobiles, and long stretches of highway, you get to go full throttle on some of the curviest roads you could ever imagine. This event is structured and overseen by experienced instructors so any rider that can safely maneuver a motorcycle in everyday traffic will be perfectly fine on these fabricated Sunshine State streets!

What You Need to Bring

Any motorcycle that can turn around a corner is eligible to ride on the course. Upon arrival, the instructors will ensure that your bike is prepared, but make sure that any ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) is removed. You will need a leather motorcycle riding suit, but they will be available to rent on-site. It is highly recommended that you preregister ahead of the event date. So…

Before August 18th Arrives…

Make sure you are registered! As with all Florida Track Days, this hybrid of open track and motorcycle school has three groups of riders: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each group rides for 20 minute sessions all day long! Regardless of your amount of riding experience, each new rider to these events should register as a Novice. More information on each group, including the full schedule is available online.

The venue for Miami’s Track Day is Homestead Miami Speedway. Gates open at 7:00AM and it is advised you get to the track as early as possible! If you’re visiting the Miami area for the event, or just want a comfortable place to rest your head after an exhilarating day on the track, book a stay with us at the Hilton Miami Downtown. Our Downtown location makes it easy to get to and from the Speedway, as well as explore many of the Magic City’s top attractions.
