In addition to requiring the use of a DOT approved helmet during all MTF events, the MTF strongly encourages the use of Motorcycle specific protective clothing and footwear while participating in any MTF event. ATGATT reduces the severity of injuries in an accident and we want every participant in our events to be as safe as possible. Also the MTF strongly encourages each participant in our events to self assess their riding style, interests, need for breaks and riding skill level and to keep that assessment in mind when choosing a riding partner or small group (2-4 riders) to ride with at our events. Sharing the road with someone of similar interests and riding style not only makes the ride more enjoyable for you, but safer for everyone.

It is located less than a mile from the New Castle exit south of I-70 and is very accessible. Note: the road off the highway and the parking lot are hard pack gravel. NCMP is a 50 acre complex with over 5000 sq.ft. of meeting area, including a full service restaurant and bar. NCMP has the fastest rental karts in the country reaching speeds of 45-50 mph! The karts coupled with the challenging track will make this an experience you won't forget!

    Racing will start out with a round of practice for all competitors. After practice, the pre-finals will begin where pre-determined groups will take to the track. Top finishers (exact number to be determined by the size of your group) from each of the pre-finals advance to the Race of Champions.Those who do not advance to the Race of Champions will try their hand at the Last Chance Race. The top finishers in the Last Chance Race will advance to the Race of Champions. The top three finishers of the Race of Champions are presented key chains reflecting their finishing position and a copy of their podium picture. Timing and scoring shees will provide a printout so you can compare your lap times to everyone else.
