Title: Eastern Creek Track Day Sun 11 Oct
Post by: charoli on September 02, 2009, 07:51:48 AM
Looking at booking in a Track Day at Eastern Creek, will be my first 'real' track day after having done CSS and Stayupright courses on at EC and Oran Park.

Good to fill the track with sweet triple harmony. Probably book closer to the date to get a better indication of weather.

That could be a good plan.

I'll try to make certain I'm in the country round then!

I've just read this post about 15mins after finding out I have to work that day.  The only weekend I have to work all year and it is this one!!   :230:

Have fun and hopefully catch up at another one soon.

Are you thinking of going into White or Yellow group?  I did CSS and then a track day the week after back in July.  Because I had booked early I went in the White group.  After the 1st or 2nd session I tried to move up to Yellow.  You pretty much have no chance of moving up though because most groups are booked out so your only chance is if someone crashes or is somehow able to move to another group.  If you end up in White, leave plenty of space between everyone and don't be in too much of a rush.  Just enjoy yourself  :028:

I'm thinking of Yellow group, though I have limited experience on track, it's a lot more than some noob on track for the first time without any rider training! which I'm gathering is what the white group is for. Is there a big difference between the groups?

Krismart I'm sure you can juggle things around to be available.  :305:

I would definitely go Yellow.  Don't think there is a massive difference anyway.

Unfortunately I can't move a clients AGM that I have to attend  :230:

Has anyone booked in for this yet?

My work committments no longer exist  :031:

I'm just waiting to see if my brother has booked in and if he has I am more than likely going to make this one now  :028:

 :062: I'm definitely a goer. Plan was to book about 1 week out for the cheaper $, and also to get a forecast of the weather. Not sure how quick positions get filled up given it's a sunday, hopefully everyone goes the day before.

I'm definitely going now.  My brother booked today and I will be booking tonight or tomorrow.

Be careful leaving it too late.  My brother tried booking about 10 days out last time and it was waiting list only.  See you there hopefully  :028:

Knew someone was going to tell me that! If that's the case, I'd better book now...guess the BOM get it wrong most of the time anyway.

Good one Kev  :028:  Should be good.

Let me know if either of you are riding there by yourself.  My brother's wife is bringing chairs etc out and I can throw in an extra if you need to.

My friend Andy (CBR600F4i) and I will be trailering I think.

Charoli, Andy's the guy from last time in our little group that had the Hornet - he's upgraded!

He had a 600 hornet? I knew that off on turn 2 was just an excuse to upgrade!

Krismart, I'll be riding down, a spare chair would be great! Let's hope for weather like today....makes me just want to leave work and go for a ride.

Sorry to hear about your off Charoli, hope you can get back on the road soon. It was a pretty rubbish weekend for it, damn weather.

Any pics of the trackday?

I met Krismart in the cafe, but could find either of you in the pits. I was down in garage 43.

I left after the 4th session ... and almost made it home before the rain  :003:

Unfortunately I went into the day with 3 hours sleep and a thumping headache (not from enjoying myself either) and didn't get the best out of the day.

Sorry to hear about the tank smack Charoli - I saw you stood up on the outside of turn 9 ... thought you'd stopped for a photo shoot  :007:

I didn't take a camera (rode out) ... we were all in the yellow group ... http://www.jpmphoto.com.au (http://www.jpmphoto.com.au)

Only a couple of action shots in there. Obviously Krismart green, Charoli orange and I'm grey (in many ways).

The way you were feeling you probably didn't make it all the way down to garage 9 where we were.  It was good to meet you, albeit quickly, at the cafe.  I was also wondering where you got to and am glad it wasn't a forced retirement.

Apart from Charoli's incident it was a good day.  We were pretty lucky with the weather at the track in the end.

I had a couple of excursions on to the grass in the last session so called it quits after the 2nd time.  I only missed 2 laps in the end but thought it best.  I still had another 75min ride home.
