Hi folks--Newbee in this forum so please forgive me if I'm telling gramma to suck eggs.
Over here for a TRACKDAY it costs $90 kiwi- Thats $45 us and about thirty quid.
safety standards vary from pay ya money take ya chances gear and bike wise. Through to a full scrutineering (tech).
Normal track day rules here are . Tape up headlight,mirrors,sharp bits,2 piece leathers or good cudura gear.
Sounds like disaster waiting to happen but accidents are really rare -people ride within their abilities

Damn right!! I was in NZ for a couple of weeks in May 2002 - FANTASTIC place :supsmiley That trackday in December almost sounds worth the £500 air fare - especially as it'll be really wet and miserable here!!

I was looking at doing a Jamie Whitham Track Attack day at donnington would anyone from the site be interested possible in 2006 now as the weather wont be up to much from now till after Christmas . I was chatting to a chap at Skegness last weekend he told me the Whitham track Attack is normally £195 but if you just turn up and when someone crashes you can take their place for only £60

First Track Day

Well, after 20-odd years of riding, it's time. Time for my first track day!

Tim, your track day advice posts are now residing in a nicely formatted Word file that I will print and study with renewed interest!

Cheers mate,
Jim

Keep the shiny side UP!

TRACK TIPS....

in the August 2006 issue of Motorcyclist Mitch "the Butcher" Boehm ran the Kevin Schwantz track School at Road Atlanta. Great pointers through out.
Here is a scan of 32 tips they teach, most of which can be applied to back road, street riding too. I was trying the "weight the inside peg till the apex then weight the outside peg through the exit" today. It felt quite right.
Enjoy!

When my time has come, I prefer to be in the Saddle rather than the Recliner.
