Sonic & I, am attempting to get the uk members together for a track day / meet at some stage during September.



Right now we are thinking of Cadwell or Rockingham...they are pretty much centre for us chaps.


Let us know what you think & we will discuss the fine details.

We need to know who is where so please state some details please, IT IS ABOUT TIME WE MADE AN EFFORT TO MEET UP!!!


regards

I'll get some possible dates up this week ,hopefully we'll have a bit of response then.:riding
Firstly thanks to admin for making this thread a sticky for us guys...much appreciated guys.


Morning Sonic, i have pm'ed a few guys, it is difficult to locate individuals from UK as there is no location finding facility here (unless i have missed it).

3-4 chaps have replied & a different folk are showing preference for varying tracks. So far - 1 for Donnington, but Mallory is in the lead with 2 in favour.

Personally , I do not mind which track, as long as it is fairly central & has plentiful bends.


I shall be contacting the pm's later & asking them to post directly on this thread. I suggest that us guys subscribe to this thread.


regards

Personally i'd prefer to not ride Rocki, it's not my favourite track having been there 4 times, but i'm happy to ride anywhere and hook up

Cadwell has better camping and B&B facilites though if that's a factor than Rocki.

I can get us discount on bookings either with No Limits or Focused Events knowing the guys who run them well enough. Just shout if i can be of assistance.

I could also speak to Colin Leender, 100% suspension or Steve Jordan and get one of them to turn up and for a small fee provide suspension service for the day too.

Good luck with Arranging this lads.

p.s I can't do August or first 2 weeks of Sept as i'm getting married on 25th Aug and then off for honeymooon.

Yay...great idea to meet up with the rest of the UK lunatic fringe.

Not sure when I'm going to be available but I'd love to get back to Mallory, I owe it a big spanking!

So far have found the following.
Keeping it central means Mallory,Donnington or Rockingham.Have added some Cadwell as it's a personal Favourite.

August 12 Rockingham National £129

25 Snetterton £105

September 10 Cadwell £109
14 Mallory £109
25 Mallory £109.

There are Quite a few Donnington Gp's but I am looking for some National days as It is a better track Will add them when I find them.

Hey all, i'm already booked to do a track evening at Donny on the 13th of June, Mallory is a bit small for 1000cc bikes tbh and it's worth remembering Donny has noise limitations most days, (even though it's right beside an airport ffs :whtfu: ), although they usually have a bloke who fits decibel killers for £25.

14 Mallory £109
25 Mallory £109.

either of these dates will be pretty much good for me,

I would suggest that we let this thread run for another 7 - 10 days... to see if we get any other members along with us chaps.


We can arrange bookings then. Obviously a full payment for the date will be required.


thanks eze

Mallory is cool for me... i had some good race finishes there and love the place :) never ridden it on more than my 750K1, but wouldn't mind a blast on the R1 there.

I've been there about 20 times so if anyone needs any pointers on what way the corners go, just shout :)

Who did you race with?,I've had a couple of wins there myself but would rather ride at another track.

We are going to let this run for a few more days and then pick a firm date and venue.

I guess we'll know a few of the same guys then mate. Chris (i forget his bloody surname) old tall fella, in the PI Class with DP is a buddy of mine, as are the boys at MSG (Greedys) and lots of the 750 guys like Chris Mathews, Pulling, Chunk etc etc.

Struggling until after mid Sept mate, just back from Jere recently, and in process of purchasing a new house... Wedding end Aug, then off on Honeymoon, but if it's after we get back on about 12th Sept, then yeah.

Best wishes with the wedding.
Mark.
