Title: Phil's Track Day Calender 2016
Post by: mellorp on January 31, 2016, 07:01:13 PM
As last year I intend getting out and about. Here's the (revised) plan so far

28th Feb - Anglesey/ No Limits 105db
22nd Mar or 31st Mar - Outon Park; MSV/No Limits 98db
30th Apr - Rhayader; Road meeting
16th Jun - Donington Park; TZR event of the year 108db
9th July - Cadwell Park; Classicbike trackday 105db

RAF Shawbury rider days (http://bikeevents.wix.com/shawburyriderday) will also fit in there somewhere; no noise restriction
If RAF Valley manage to get in a rider day I'll pop over there as well. All the money from RAF days goes to RAF charities :-)

Anglesey came up trumps with the weather, as di the 2 new bikes. As I haven't ridden either of them before the track day I was pretty pleased how they went. Me being very rusty and not wanting to bin either bike I took it very easy on tyres I hadn't ridden before. Dunlop SportMax on the RGV500 and Maxis Supermaxx on the RG400. All in all a great day out for £65

Here's a vid (enjoy the noise as the camera spins round after a while) of the RGV500 (https://youtu.be/GjNu37D8TLM) being given some tuition by the NoLimits guy. False neutrals and dropping out of 2nd. How very RG

I'm up for Anglesey but can't do 30 May. Any time in June is good.
Will try Llandow soon with fozzy and crew.

are you sure - It's a go-kart track http://www.llandow.com/circuit-information/circuit/
Noise limit is 105db, and you get time for an afternoon nap....
I think I'd have more fun riding round my local roads

Fozzys mate is a very good rider. He said it's a great laugh and thrilling.

Last minute I decided to do Oulton Park (102 static 98 drive by)
Here are some vids of the 3XV
Session 2 then some numpty binned it https://youtu.be/vbsSkSSorgM
Part 1 (session 3) https://youtu.be/mdVCg7BBZcU
Part 2 (Session 3) https://youtu.be/X5m-v1QNMeg

I thought the 3XV was running quite well in the morning, but I got my mojo on the Aprilia in a deserted 7th session and went 5 seconds a lap faster, timed using the Pirelli Diablo superbiker phone app. And no I don't use tyre warmers

Shawbury riders weekend is confirmed as August 13th and 14th, the first day of the PL season

I will probably do the Saturday. No noise limit :-)

£65 per day. It's the same format as RAF Valley. No noise limit on a track designed out of runway and taxi ways. It's good fun

http://www.shawburyriderday.co.uk/

You need to register all people and vehicles on the form, van and bike as it's an active air base

I went last year, it's fast and bumpy. Great place to get your suspension set up properly

I'm going on the Sunday in the Novice group

Good to know. The cases on my RG were altered to fit in the RGV frame and without the revised cover I can't fit the Nova box and dry clutch. It was jumping out of gear so it's not been ridden until the new gears are fitted
Hope you enjoyed your tour :-)
Title: Re: Phil's Track Day Calender 2016
Post by: mellorp on June 24, 2016, 01:09:05 AM
I'm getting them to look at TZ V twin clutch bosses.
Min run of 5 so depending on price I may get them done.

Let me know Jools. I'm interested in a 4dp one price dependant.
Start your own Nova gearbox thread. Leave my track days alone, it's pure track day focused :-( :-(
