Track days

I have a little query chaps and chap-ets. Well I am quite fancying doing some track days, can I do this with a restricted licence?? I know I can't rag a 600cc round, but a 400cc or something??

go for a track day tester-sometimes they'll let you do half a day or the last session for £20-£40...

Failing that go for a package where they provide the gear and the bike but make sure you take someone with u... having seen the hassle that coming off causes been debating with t'other half the 'what if' plan and simples-get insured so they can drive ur car home if need be :-)

I'm taking baby out as soon as she's sorted-i couldnt care less if i only do 20mph round cadwell i HAVE to go over that mountain lol

ps don't go with msv-they're shite but no limits are taking over the trackday side of things next year so here's hoping they run it better...

In a word........

No. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.:upset:


This is a clip from the info that was emailed to me from Focused Events before a recent track day...

Driving License

You must bring both parts of your full current (unrestricted) UK driving licence issued by the DVLA with you and present it at registration. You will not be allowed onto the circuit without one. If using an ACU licence then you must be at least 18 years old. An MSA licence will not be accepted. RESTRICTED LICENSES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED


Other TDO's may be less restrictive but I don't think so...


I stand to be corrected tho.........

Engine size is not the issue...

You can take a 125 on track.. But you need a full license to do it....

Could try a race school

Ron Haslam's for example doesn't require you to have a license.:smile
