Trackdays are NOT RACES
Now where do i start.
1. trackdays are a great place for riders with no experience on the track to gain experience
2. novice group means novice, SO WHY THE FECK WAS A TOTAL NOVICE RIDING IN THE ADVANCED GROUP, WHO PANICED AND DIDNT EVEN BREAK AS THEY RODE INTO THE INSIDE OF MY BACK WHEEL, WHILE I TURNED INTO A FAST RIGHT, TOOK ME OUT BIG STYLE.
net result smashed pelvis, 4 broken ribs, perminant dislocated shoulder, destroyed thumb, and wost of all a totalled bike. (ok this could have happened racing, but thats racing, TRACKDAYS are NOT RACES)
Before you all start i was in the advanced group, testing my race bike before i was due to travel to ireland to race, so you could say i am experienced.
mates riding behind, said he got his line all wrong and didn't even try to brake until after he hit me, sat and froze.
As a result i can no longer race due to pelvis injury, and will need a new hip joint with in 5 to 10 years.
So please follow these rules if you intend to trackday
1. Novice stay in this group if you have never ridden on track before, and until an instructor tells you that you are good enough to move to intermediate
2. just because you happen to think you are a fast road rider, this does not mean you will be quick on track.
3. go and watch a few to see what it is all about
4. take it easy and steady, build up speed slowly
5. most of all stay safe, not just for you for other riders
