Harpersfield Supervisor, Jim Eisel Stated:

At a public meeting on Nov. 12th, 2012, Harpersfield Supervisor Jim Eisel, Sr., informed group of the concerned residents: “the Town will enforce the Site Plan Review. The Site Plan  is only for a training track, not for racing, motorcycles or cars on the track.” At the same meeting Supervisor Eisel asked his constituents the following question: “How many times to I have to tell you people, there will be no racing and no cars??”

The very first event held at the NY Safety Track on May 4 and 5, 2013, was a car racing event featuring exclusively – cars (see ‘Driving Force Club’ or ‘NYST’ on facebook) Complaints have been filed with Code Enforcer and the town Sheriff. No action has been taken by the town to enforce the Site Plan Review Law.



Events Planned for 2013

New York Safety Track has been approved by the Harpersfield Planning Board to to offer motorcycle safety training “solely to give the rider a feel (what) they can expect on the roads.”
NYST has contracted with 
North Eastern Sports Bike Association (NESBA) and TEAM PROMOTION. NESBA and TEAM-PROMOTION activities do not fall under “solely… (what) the rider… can expect on the roads.”

NESBA and TEAM PRO-MOTION activities at NYST (scheduled for 5/11, 5/12/ 5/31, 6/1, 6/15, 6/16, etc…Source NYSafetyTrack.com) will be a clear violation of the site plan parameters.

“A Typical Track Day With NESBA  – Is Far From “Typical”
This is what you can expect at a motorcycle track day with NESBA, where you’ll tear up the racetrack with fellow sportbike addicts, elevate your skill and have the time of your life doing it:”

Description of advanced classes: “This group has very little supervision….This group is run much like an open racing practice.”

Certification School will provide a student who follows the general guidelines and shows proper acknowledgement of the material being presented with certification to purchase a CCS license upon completing and passing the course. CCS rules and regulations along with procedures, flags, safety along with riding and racing strategy will be covered. Motorcycle preparation, basic suspension and geometry theory and overall racing mentality, will complete this course.
