We have been asked by our track day organisers to release the following statement to our Bike Track Day customers.
From 2022 onwards, all riders will require a full length back protector. When the riders line up to go out on sighting laps, the pitlane marshals will run through all their usual checks such as wristbands etc and give them a friendly ‘pat on the back’.
No specific type of protector is required, but the main requirements is that it is full length and designed/fit for that purpose. Integrated back protectors are fine if full length or cover the majority of the spine.
When lining up for your sighting laps the pitlane marshals will do their visual checks (for wristbands etc) and give you a few friendly taps up and down the back to complete the check.
