    So who's up for a trackday when the weathers gets better.

    Post  wackjonny on Tue Jan 05, 2010 8:53 am

    Just put username only...........and I will log them.

    I would suggest Donington as that's pretty central for everyone.

    Another reason is track surface,done may a racing tracks and the surface is shocking,Donington by far has the best track surface.

    After all it was Moto GP Racing.

    For some that never rode on a track,I could chat about many tracks ie Cadwell to technical for some,silverstone best suited for 1000 CC,Rockingham best suites 600 cc and so forth.

    So Donington will be the track.

    If some have X-BOX OR PLAYSTATION........You can learn the track buying the game as I did.

    Well Im restricted till the 15th August, but Im sure me and the OH might be interested, Cadwell is 9 miles ish from me.(Obviously after discussions, off duty, baby sitting etc).

    Your not allowed to do Track days restricted, coz of insurance or something.....

    Lucas I will look into it,having said that!

    What Ellie says may be true but we took along adam riding a 125 cc but he did have a ACU Licence,you have a licence so don't know if it makes a difference.

    I have seen many 125 CC bikes ridden by over 21 years old with a licence so surely your bike is fast than a 125........asking ...... Isn't it?

    Ive had 115 out of mine, and its the licence, not the bike, coz if u have a full licence, you can take a 125cc apparently.


    Thats what they told me when I rang to have a go at them...but that was at Cadwell.


    Ive not done a track day before, so wud probably need to do a Novice one. Im capable of riding my bike hard, but not experienced on the track... wazzer
