Now in their fourth season, they are likely to remain as popular as
ever with riders up and down the country.

Signing of indemnity forms, checking of motorcycle licences
and allocation of instruction sessions.
Before taking part in any track day, all bikes are subject
to a noise test. Please see the noise testing regulations to
see how this is measured.
This will cover everything you need to know about the day from
rules of the event, through to car preparation, driving techniques
and circuit information.
Familiarisation laps or "ducks and drakes" are carried out
behind a pace car and give you a chance to experience each bend at
a reduced speed before unrestricted track time begins.
Track Time Begins
The track day begins and it's time to put your car through its
