Phil's Track Day Calender 2016
« 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 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 being given some tuition by the NoLimits guy. False neutrals and dropping out of 2nd. How very RG

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

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

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
