thanks bro I'm planning on riding in a few weeks hopefully the weather feels the same wayOh yeah and welcome.
That's me! I'm from Haslett, right on the edge of East Lansing. Hopefully this weather turns around real fast. Just ordered some more stuff for my bike today, so I at least have some time to pretty her up before it gets warm.Welcome to the forum! There are a few of us around including a newer guy (going to have to try to remember who) from just east of lansing a bit somewhere. I'll absolutely be headed out past you to meet people on the east side a few times this summer, I'm sure, so you're more than welcome to join :bigthumb:
By mid-April there shouldn't be snow around anymore, but it's not impossible :OWhats going on fellas....
I know im from the east coats and all.
So Me and Scott Diamond from Moto-D Racing are planning to come out to Grattan Raceway with Sportbike Track Time in the middle of April for a trackday weekend.
My question in general, what kind of weather and temp should we except to see? Please say dont cold and snow lol.
For Trackday riders whose been there, how Grattan conditions? also do they supply power? camping grounds?
nothing impossible when it comes to weatherBy mid-April there shouldn't be snow around anymore, but it's not impossible :O
Yeah, it'll be the same at my home track the weekend before, its gonna be jammed pack with hot headed angry riders ready to hit the track. I wouldnt be surprised out there neither. We'll be watching the weather forecast prior to attending.itll be cold and possibly foggy in the morning. That side of the state gets lake effect snow so its definately a possibility. Don't worry Manolo I live in Carlstadt for most of my life (18 years, if you're around 31 y/o we have probably met). The track will be pretty busy since everyone is anxious to get out there.
Grattan is far enough east into the state that we don't really get much lake effect anymore. There's a bit from time to time, but not that much really and by April it should be gone...hopefully...itll be cold and possibly foggy in the morning.

Thanks for the info Ski, we're planning a few days out there this year. Grattan in april and august, autobahn is june, and blackhawk in july but we're hoping for good weather.Manolo, the april dates, and October dates at Grattan are a crap shoot. in 2013 the april event, there was ice on the track, and they were salting it to get the track "rideable".
last year Monday or Tuesday prior to the event, there was several inches of fresh snow on the track, they cancelled the event. by that weekend it was 65-70 degrees at the track and sunny (go figure).
if you really want to have a great experience at grattan I would suggest events in may through labor day. anything before or after is a crap shoot. wera races there in may and august. and the 4th of july event is a 3 day event with the ladies only event on Friday, and normal track days for sat and sunday.
I do love me some grattan though. you can camp at the track (no fees, unless you rent a garage). no supplied power so, bring your genny.
more than likely, I will be coaching with stt for the grattan events, all season. we will have to keep I touch, and put a face to the name. Ski
