Re: My First Track Day(s) - Report...

So despite the issues I'd like to think I'd have got better if I was out earlier etc, but I didn't so I won't shed a tear over it. Also there is a reason that track is the most technical in the UK (because it is). I don't have any GoPro footage as it would only show me shitting myself & getting passed & I didn't get to a "comfort" level where I thought it was worth filming....

The following day however we hit Donington. We met Mark64 in the garage & Martin brought along his Z AFM to dial in his track bike, Stay tuned to hear how that went :party:

Thanks,
Stuart :26:

You seen the pic link I put on the "Cadwell" thread mate?

Cadwell is a love hate thing. Come prepared or don't come at all is what we used to tell new comers. Book again but get everything sorted the week before and I will come and do photos of every session

Re: My First Track Day(s) - Report...

Sweet write up. Makes me want a track day so bad. I have the same pic of me on the mountain....took me all day to get it up, fnarr! Worth every penny from the photographer though. Zero to hero in a single second!

Cadwell is great. When I rode it I was scared to get on the power of my 929 blade (not had it that long)....then a guy came round the outside of me on a fooked 15 yr old Yamaha TDM! Goodness knows hoe a gixxer thou feels on the narrow circuit.

We should have a forum trackday at Donny...I'd make the effort. :dance:

Funny you should mention that as my next track day report is in progress :25:....

Right so I got out for 3 sessions of Cadwell, 1st was panic mode, 2nd I was.... Well still in panic mode. Didn't want to nail it on the straights & run out of track & will all the crests etc you can't see what's coming. As rain started to fall not many were out so I pretty much had an empty track on my 3rd session & when the rear was spinning I called time. Bye Cadwell :sob:..

Image

We stopped off at the Melbourne view hotel, a stones throw from Donny & called it a day. than night there were some lads in the bar who were also doing Donny the following day which had done it before & talked me through the map I'd printed off. I bit the bullet & pulled my No Limits wrist bands off at this point, wanted to keep them on forever (however they may be destined to be mounted in a frame with the mountain picture :whistle:....
