No annual membership fee is required to ride in Performance Track Riding days at The Mid-Ohio School!


Get on the track for one or two full days of track lapping on your sportbike. All skill levels are encouraged to participate, from NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED riders. Our instructors will aid you in cornering skills, visual skills, body position, throttle control, steering input, lean angle and entry speed. Work on line selection and traction management and brush up on track flags and terminology. All participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate in Performance Track Riding Programs. Riders new to Mid-Ohio must begin in the NOVICE group.  Advancement of any rider will occur only with approval from the coaching staff.

Frequent Rider Program

In every day life, there are things outside of our control. Traffic. Taxes. Weather. The Mid-Ohio School’s Frequent Rider Program is a relief.

The Frequent Rider Program was designed to allow for life’s little uncertainties. Simply ride four or more days in a year and reap the rewards. Those who ride four days will be protected from weather or any other unforeseen circumstances that keep them from the fun. Can’t make it to the track on one day that you’ve already scheduled? Don’t like the way the weather looks when you wake up? Call up to 72 hours after the event and let us know when you’d like to come questions asked, no reschedule fee.

Ride seven days and be protected on two of those seven.  Those who ride ten or more days will be protected on three days with one additional, huge opportunity... One of these riders will be chosen in a drawing at our Frequent Rider Appreciation Day to ride for free the entire next year! 

All Frequent Rider Program members are locked into the regular price rate, even if you schedule a track day at the 11th hour.

All Frequent Riders are invited to ride for FREE on Customer Appreciation Day!

"Very well organized, very punctual on times ... everything was very well communicated ... the instructors/control riders were very informative ... I couldn't have asked for any better day."
--Mike Bowers

"My husband and I were both highly impressed with the availability of rider coaches willing to teach, as we were very happy to learn all that we could."
--Ken and Mandi Arner

"I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that our recent trip to the Mid-Ohio track was awesome. We had never been to this particular track before, so we weren't sure what to expect. I must say, without a doubt, this was one of the most enjoyable track days. For me, I experienced great kindness from many of the staff members. The staff here were more than accommodating. I have never been allowed to get so close to the track to photograph these events. Your track hospitality was very much noticed and appreciated. We most certainly plan on coming back to this track."
--Eva Gillespie and Shane Cochran

"This was my first experience at [Mid-Ohio], and thereby my first experience with the school itself, and I have to say that it was a simply amazing experience. My experience with my instructor for [the track day] was the best I've had yet. The way everything is organized is fantastic, but the time and attention he took in building my confidence and abilities is really what set everything apart. He was patient, enthusiastic, and absurdly knowledgeable about everything on the track, and his personality and positivity were the best I've run into yet. I have a new favorite track, and I just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for the experience."
--Matt Jarvis
