  2. That's the Mrs' birthday weekend... I guess it means that I'm a non-starter yet again... :cry:
  3. I haven't been there before and curious to know more.

    Is there a place to read about it?

    What the event is all about (is it a race day with tuition)?
    What the schedule looks like?
    How much time on the track/class? Etc.

  4. It's basically a ride day, but with a shit load of ex-racers, current racers, instructors and all round good guys (and gals!) who do tuition in each session.

    I've been once, and i think it was rotating 20 minute sessions between 3 groups (slow, med, fast)

    Johnny and a few of the others also do various classroom sessions .(optional) but well worth a look in! Last time there was a suspension and fitness class in addition to the riding ones.

    Just get a long to it. It's relatively cheap, and so far in my riding career, it's the most i've learnt in one day!

  6. Wow. That sounds like a lot of fun indeed.
    Thanks a lot for the explanation.

    Well, that topic is just a cross post of this one and has much less information than the curent by now :)
  7. Is it possible to hire it or it's only BYO? :)

    Is it possible to book online?
  8. To book you can email/ring Susan Edwards and pay by credit card. Usually no hire eqipment is available on these days - If you need equipment buy it, because once you have done one you will be hooked. (y)

  9. Byo everything. Don't have to have a back protector I think, just highly recomended. As jap said, just buy it ;)
  10. This sounds great.

    Would you need significant road experience for the beginner course?
  11. I think as long as you are confident with the basics you'll be ok... you only go as fast as you want!
  12. I'd love to buy it, it's out of the budget for the near future :(

    So I won't be able to attend unless I hire the leathers+boots :cry:
  13. What's your jacket size? I have a Euro size 52 one-piece leather suit that you could borrow (the one I'm wearing in my avatar - yes, I have different gear for track days v's general riding).

    The suit doesn't have any hidden stitching, so it's likely to be a one-use item in the event of a decent slide (unlikely for a noob at Broadford). It only cost me $80, so I'm not fussed if you scuff it up a bit... If you manage to get a knee down (which I very much doubt for your first track day), you'll make me look like a legend on my next track day! The catch is that the suit looks so gay that no self-respecting gay man would wear it... ;)

    As for boots, helmet and gloves... They're a bit more personal, so I'll let you find your own.

    Send me a PM with your phone number or email address if you're interested, and I'll tee up a time for you to come over and try it on. (y)

    Alternatively, you could try looking on ebay or gumtree. There are some nice entry-level leathers out there, going for a really attractive price!
