MURRIETA, Calif. (August 27, 2010) - For a second time this year, KTM North America and The Mid-Ohio School have added dates to the 'Arrive and Ride' program, offering new Race_Orange Track Day Experience days on October 4 and October 5 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
The initial four scheduled dates, along with an added session on July 8 all sold out quickly earlier this year. Motorcyclists will have two more opportunities near the end of the riding season in the Midwest. There are 55 spots available on Monday, October 4 and 50 during the Tuesday, October 5 program. Spots in the two new dates are available for order now at www.midohioschool.com or by calling 877-793-TMOS (8667).
""With The Mid-Ohio School's help we were able to add another pair of dates this fall to meet the high demand for the "Arrive and Ride" Race_Orange program and it's an excellent way to cap off the peak riding season at a great facility.," said John Hinz, Product Line Manager at KTM North America.
This event is unique as KTM preps and provides motorcycles for each participant. Models available include the KTM 1190 RC8 R, 1190 RC8, 990 SMR and 690 Duke. The cost is an exceptional value at $275 which includes use of the KTM motorcycle, fuel, tires and track day fee.
The program serves two purposes: Not only does it provide an opportunity for riders from across the country to get on track without the need to transport their bikes to Mid-Ohio, but it also gives them a chance to ride the latest lineup of KTM street bikes.
Riders of all skill levels are welcome and will be split into three groups riding in four 20-minute sessions throughout the day. This event is open to novice, intermediate and advanced riders.
