First Trackday - Donnington
on: August 26, 2015, 12:28:00 AM
Got my first Trackday on Friday with Focused Events at Donnington.
Anyone going from here and any advice on what to expect on my first one? 98db is the limit, baffles in I expect [emoji45]

So excited but nervous too!

Well! Definitely got the bug now [emoji16][emoji16] awesome day, no offs and actually got past quite a few people. Proudest moment was being all over a SPEED triple and getting past him under braking!its true what they say about the speed not being that quick, for a 1050 he wasn't getting away on the straights and was really fighting it through the S's.
Managed to hang with my mate on an r6 for a good 3-4 laps too! What a circuit!!
Looks like I'm gonna get a track bike tho ([emoji1]) as my street is too precious to dump!
Pics and vids to follow if interested.

Well done :028: Donny is an excellent track.

Get yourself over to Cadwell best track and very much suited to the STR

The speed is far quicker than the STR but then trying to stop it with the extra weight will slow it down. I very often go past s1000rr/R1 etc at trackdays on my Daytona 120 bhp compared to there 200 ha ha

Thanks Gary, absolutely fantastic day!
I'm off to silverstone on the 19th, national layout so shouldn't be tooooo bad on the ST. then Cadwell late October I think on hopefully a newly purchased track bike. Then I'm also thinking about Valencia in November for a little 3 day birthday treat! Gotta get a track bike and all the business for under 2500... The search is on!
