Broadford track day Sun Oct 7 :-)

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' at netrider.net.au started by Johnny O, Oct 2, 2012.

  1. Hey Guy's :)



    The next Champions Broadford track day is this Sunday at Broadford, the weather forecast is for a dry day, bring it on!

    I'll be coaching, this'll be my last day coaching for a month or two, I go in next Wed for a new knee joint.

    If you wanna get fast & smooth with MotoGP syle, call 07 5549 0364 and book in.

  4. gundy. just book in.
    I dont know how you ride but im sure you'll be great in the red group! As long as you have all the right gear, its all systems go.
    Why wait to see what happens? its not rocket science, you just ride safely around, as fast as you want to go. Theres even a person who calls your group out to let you know when to go on the track ;)

    I'll see ya there!

  5. If i had a bike at the moment, i probably would.. hopefully it won't be too long and i'll be on two wheels again. I figured that this might be a good way to get some vicarious thrills in the mean time, as well as getting a feel for broadford.. :)

    looking forward to meet you Johnny :D

  14. A day at Broadford should take care of any issues you have with right turns.

  15. Well, I headed out for a look today, and all I can say is that I'm jealous of all the people who managed to get out on the track. It was a great morning for it, and it looked like a hell of a lot of fun. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.

    (y)

    I can't wait to get out there myself now...

  19. Boys, how was the drive home? Hope not too hard!!

    Thanks Johnny for a great day. The misses loved it hahaha..
    The Coaching was well worth it and i would recommend it to anyone! Look forward to working on the pointers you gave and changing the gearing to give you a run for your money ;) Good luck on Wednesday for your surgery!

    See you at the Preston Day come Nov.
