Who to use?

#1 Post by Gio » Thu Jul 16, 2015 6:19 pm

Its been such a long time since I did a track day and I do rather fancy another (10 years ago IMSC), but who is the best provider?

BTW I'd prefer somewhere in the SE.

Choose your track and dates

See who there is


Let's face it, you wouldn't go to a nurse to get good advice on a problem with a Falco - you'd choose an Engineer or a mechanic...

How much do they charge for the bike hire and do you have to put down a security deposit or ought like that?

£240 for the bike, no deposit but if you bin it, you will pay somewhere between £250 and £500 on top of the hire for repairs.

Dunno how much a set of track tyres would be or how many days you'd get out of a set, but £240 seems pretty good in comparison to running around yourself sorting tyre warmers, plus anything else you have to do on the day - literally turn up, jump on the bike and off you go. Only 600's, but actually I was quite happy with that for a novice day, and I was more interested in the corners than the straights anyway

Hi Gio - not seen you on here for a while

Don't do many these days, but MSV or No Limits are the only ones I would use - probably MSV as first choice
