AMA Superbike Weekend

  • Jul 12, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a weekend of AMA Superbike racing and sports photography.  Mid Ohio is a great place to shoot with lots of different areas that have decent access to the track for photography.  If you don't know how to "pan", you will after this weekend.    A 300mm or better lens is recommended for this shoot.  If you need one, call Wilma at K&R for a weekend rental or borrow one from a friend.  There are spots where a 200mm will suffice, but you will be much happier with a longer lens.

Here's a link for the Weekend General Admission Ticket priced at $40.00  in advance.
Advance ticket pricing is available through Friday, May 3rd, 2013 only.

There are other tickets available including pit passes, etc.  To see all the different tickets available, go here.

If you can't come for the whole weekend, come and meet up with us just for the day on Saturday or Sunday.  We won't be hard to find and I'll be giving out my cell number to all who want it so we can contact each other.

If anyone wants to carpool or room share or camp, they should make their preference known immediately, as the local hotels fill up fast for this event.

Beginning April 22, 2013, there are a number of construction projects ongoing that may impact travel to Mid-Ohio from the south and east. Please click the link below for info.

    Looks like fun, but alas out of town then. Enjoy!

    Will start my training for Marathon by then. So I have to pass on this one. Sorry.

    June 23, 2013

  • Sharon N.

    Do they allow camera bags and backpacks around the track?

    June 18, 2013

    • Rick

      Yes. It's pretty wide open. I don't think there are any restrictions, other than staying on your side of the fences.

      June 23, 2013

  • Rick

    Sorry Mike. Missed your post till now. I just bought the general admission package. That gives you access all around the track. I don't buy grandstand reserved seating, as I never sit down in the stands and most times, there's plenty of room in the stands anyway.

  • MIKE D.

    rick is what ticket do you recommend for good shoot area? never been to one of these and unforutunely have no clue about shooting

    If you can't find a place in Lexington, then try Mansfield. It's only about 30 min. away. I've stayed there several times and it's not that bad.

    May 24, 2013

  • Chris W.

    Its hard to find a place near the track. I'll probably stay at the track campground.

    Does everyone have lodging secured?

    May 19, 2013

  • Rick

    Look for lodging in Lexington, Ohio, which is where the race course is. There are not a lot of them, so you should make lodging arrangements now. If they are all full, then Mansfield is the next best place.

  • Sharon N.

    Does anyone have knowledge of any local motels?

    May 3, 2013

  • Eric H.

    Rick, do they maybe have press passes available for "qualified" folks like us?

    I might want to camp -- are there special facilities for guys without honking great motorhomes and just use simple tents?

    April 30, 2013

    • Rick

      No press passes unless you have contacts. Check the site for quals....there's a list. Camping is by tent or RV at different rates, of course. I would say this about camping: It can be dusty/muddy depending on weather, it can be loud at night sometimes until around 11 or12, there are portable showers and toilets and the camp is right next to the track. It ain't the Hilton, but I've been in worse places.

  • Connie S.

    I think I am going to change my RSVP, as I'm incredibly busy right now and just saw the deadline for advanced admission is in two days. I don't have time to look into all this right now.

    April 30, 2013

  • Ke F.

    I am interested in going up for just one day if I can find a carpool - will pay my share of gas or Vis versa. Please let me know if you are thinking the same.
