A typical bike track day will run like this:
Signing On (7:30-8:30)
Complete and sign the riders indemnity form, driving licence check and allocation of instruction session if requested.
Noise Testing (8:00-8:30)
Before taking part in any track day, your vehicle is subject to a noise test. Please see the noise testing regulations to see how this is measured.
Safety Briefing (8:30 - 8:45)
This will cover everything you need to know about the day from rules of the event, through to bike preparation, riding techniques, etiquette and circuit information.
Familiarisation/Sighting Laps (9:00)
Familiarisation laps are carried out behind a pace bike at the beginning of your first session. These give you a chance to experience each bend at a reduced speed and note the live marshal post and circuit conditions before continuing with the session.
Sessions continue (9:00 - 17:00)
Events will typically follow one of two formats with an hour break for lunch. Open Pitlane - you can go on and off circuit as you choose. Or sessions - vehicles are grouped according to the users track experience. Sessions are typically 20 minutes on rotation. It's time to put your vehicle through its paces. Warm your tyres, start off slow and build up your pace up throughout the day. There is no rush.
The format is the same as a 'day event'.
