    Grattan Raceway, MI

    Those of you familiar with Grattan Raceway in Belding, MI may be able to provide some info. I just visited the raceway's website looking for an '09 schedule of events but found only the '08 schedule. By any chance does anybody have info relating to '09 events at Grattan? Should I just relax, be patient and wait for them to update the site?

    Thanks.

    I did the same thing. All I can think of to do is wait, or maybe send them an e-mail.

    Check the Sportbike Track Time (STT) schedule, they use to do a few track days there.

    Grattan doesn't post their schedule until late winter/early spring, and the track doesn't open until late March.

    In the mean time, enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wed_YomN0T4 (random Grattan video).

    Grattan Raceway

    I will be racing at Grattan on June 19,20 & 21 with AHRMA. It is a fun weekend. Some great races and good times. The weekend before AHRMA will be a Road America!!! Now that is a track.
    I should be racing a newer bike this year.

    Here's a video by OTT that details each of the 12 turns at Grattan courtesy a trackday regular and WERA racer: http://www.onthethrottle.tv/

    Scroll down the list of videos and look for 'Grattan Raceway part 2.'

    The other videos at this site are good for racers and race fans, too.

    enjoy,

    Smile Back to the front page

    From the AHRMA thread:
    "June 20 & 21 AHRMA will be racing at Grattan also. Stop by the pits and say Hi! I will be racing two different bikes this year. (Sorry they are not BMW)

    Yes, BMW of Grand Rapids and of SE Michigan sponsored a track day on 15 June. ~70 riders attended, and it was a blast.

    Here is the group pic, along with Nate Kern and the S1000RR.

    Exclamation Grattan

    This is a family track, so updates may be a little slow at times. Nevertheless, it's a great track to race on as Becky knows (I race in the same class as she does), but it also is a great track to watch a race as well.
    Grattan has a entire erray of Motorsport events, two-wheel and four-wheel.
