I prefer Cadwell, and since they cost about the same, and my budget is limited, I may as well just do another Cadwell meet if I get the chance.   If more funds become available nearer the time, I may book it.

But that will be Just Another Cadwell meet :-o

Sorry. Just seen this thread. When is Cadwell? I can't find the dates.

Cadwell is the Practical Sports Bikes weekend run by Classic Bike Trackdays on June 24th/25th. It's on Phil's possible track day thread

The Big Bang is No Limits at Donington on July14th, and I have negotiated a discount for the 7 x 20 min sessions

Can I make something clear, I'm not making a penny out of any of this. I'm not promoting anything, selling anything or offering any sort of services. It's only about getting a bunch of 2Strokes together out on track

Phil, you and a couple more (including me sometimes), are the few on here who are actually driven to ride the bikes on a track. the others are not keen (price or fear or both). its just a fact.
some own bikes to look at them, others to fiddle, some to ride, some to race. best is whatsapp or email. make a list of those who want to be in touch and keep a mail list going, thats how Ed does it in SA.

Thanx Paul. My main track day thread is on the RGV250 forum. It might just catch someone's eye so no one gets excluded if I put it on here as well

I'll be scaling my interest down to track days rather than racing now as:

1 getting too old to risk it with the crash or win boys
2 Not as fit as I used to be
3 Fatter than I used to be
4 Less tolerant
5 Cost - its cheaper to do track days now
6 more track time, less stoppages and delays due to 1 above
7 Less stress, riding at sustainable pace so should be more enjoyable.
8 did I mention it was cheaper?

So to all those a bit worried about this, think of it as a quick ride out at your own pace with no plod or dickhead cars to worry about.
Oh and if you do manage to fall off, it doesn't really hurt - just the pride !

I'd rather see that TZ750 completed than hear you're racing.
I never wanted to race, only to have fun.
Life is like a race anyway.

Bring the TZ750 to the big bang.... I wouldn't mind but it has to be 90 in the shade  before Paul will bother booking (the day before.....)

Cadwell is up soon, The 85 TZ will be going round for the first time in many many years after being restored, quick run up the road and its going to take a bit of getting used to.... HOWEVER the TD3 will be at Donnington, thats just NUTS, im not sure at this point if ill even manage a LAP is so difficult to get going and HATES going slow, everything is top end, ....

Be nice to see a few more TZR boys.... I tried the TDR forum but seems like anyone with a two stroke these days is retired, bar the hard core racers..... Im at work today and the TDR is outside, Decided a while ago after thinking of selling that FOOK it, im gona ride and enjoy it, So it will be worth less in later years, but who cares !!!!! Anyone going ill see you there bring ear plugs The TD3 isnt a modern bike and Barks like an OLD Dog!!!!!!!!!
