Know any track bike rental companies?

Very good friend of mine is over start of september and were planning a track day in first week of Sept - prob Silverstone. Can anyone recommend a track bike rental company that we could use? Hes; tried Ladysnootz (sp?) and theyre all out in Spain apparently!

Focused Events also rent bikes for their own track days. There may be some rulae about "other rental bikes not being allowed", but not sure where I read that.

Lougimoto do Dukes though.

Thanks all. He's not a fan of twins, despite my raving, so likely to go for a IL4. Thanks for the link Frank, I knew there was one someehere but was looking on uktrackdays.co.uk.

No Limits Trackdays use Paul Russo, as do a number of the other trackday companies. Paul has about 10 R6's, all totally race prepped with race cans, bodywork, rearsets, decent suspension etc etc. I've ridden several of them (he uses us to test them after crashes or to run in new tyres - dummies or what???), so I can personally testify that they are good bikes.

Paul supplies everything and personally looks after the bike all day, unlike some other rental firms, so he will fuel it up and put the tyre warmers on after every session - you just turn up and throw your leg over it.

Send me a U2U and I'll give you his mobile number.

i was talking to the guy from ladysnoots at donington gp last week and he seemed to offer a good service

f/events will only allow their own hire bikes on track but if you hired 1 from loigimoto who are they to know its not yours
