Castle Combe - 4th or 18th of May

These are the dates with Castle Combe racing school between the Cadwell round and the Castle Combe round. There may be others who do TD's there, please let us know if you know.

They are all Wednesdays so no option of not taking a day off work for me unfortunately.

Anyone up for this?

Let me know.

TP

NB - Please note, 105 db noise restrictions are here and they're quite anal apparently.

On Noise read very very very strict, basically as your bike sounded when it came out of the showroom, I may see if I can have half day off work and pop along and watch.
Haven'y got the money spare to pay for a trackday but as I'm use to approaching the corners at Fireblade and 916 speeds I'm sure I'll cope when the race comes and i'm on a 600SS.

105 dB is pretty loud and the desmodue limit anyway if you are using those bikes.

I have never ridden at Castle Coombe and cannot turn up for a race without at least an idea of how the track runs. A brief practise on the sat am will not cut it for me. I have decided to forgo some luxury's on the bike to enable the track day cost Kev.

Phil.

PS..

Dunno about your bike but mine flys........LOL..
