All bikes are measured for sound, every lap. If your bike exceeds 90-92dB it will be flagged off the course. You will be given a second chance. However, a third violation bans the bike from the track for the day. If your bike's intake and exhaust systems are "stock" you will be given a third chance.   If you are using an aftermarket with a DB killer you will only get two chances before you are done for the day.

Aftermarket pipes are prohibited unless they have commercially-made quiet baffles ("dB killers", etc.). Jay Murray's custom-made "quiet inserts", are acceptable. Contact Jay at 831-659-4729 or email

NRS SCHOOLS are Free again this year!

Who is excited to do some racing with the AFM?  We have four NRS schools on the schedule for 2024.  The first NRS school this year will be March 30th at Thunderhill East.  We will also be doing one on May 17th  and another on June 21st, both are on AFm Fridays.  And one more at the final AFM round on September 27th.   This year to help support the AFM we are offering the NRS Schools at no extra charge to help bring more racers into the club!  (You do have to pay for the track day, but not the school, $50 value!) Come get your license and then join your Carter's family at the races with the AFM!

Pro J's has opened their new shop!

Jose with Pro J's Cycles has now opened his new shop in Richmond.  If there is anything that you need for your bike before you head to the track, make sure you swing by 12432 San Pablo Ave. and see Jose.  He has everything that you would find at one of our trackdays, so you can get everything you need beween events with us.  Don't forget that off season maintenance!  Give him a call at 510-233-8484, or go to his website!


Now you only need to give us 48 hours if you need to cancel an event.  Outside two weeks you can get a refund - Paypal fees, but inside of two weeks and up to 48 hours before the event, you can cancel and we will give you full credit to use in the future.  Now there is no worry about signing up early!


Ken Hill will continue as head instructor for our Schools for 2024!  We are planning only one school this year on April 8th and 9th at Thunderhill East.  We will be combining our two schools into one making it a Novice/Advanced School.  Intermediate riders can decide if they want or mellow pace, or they are really ready to step it up!

Ken is proven to be one of the best coaches in the business, and his ability to break it down to a level that is fun and easy for everybody to understand is unmatched!

If you want to step up your game, there is no better way to improve your riding skills than one of our two day schools!
