 TRACKDAY RIDER INFO & SAFETY 

Slick Tyres 

Please note this IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR 2020 in case it affects you; 
 
Slick tyres will only be allowed in the Fast / Expert group this year 
 
If you intend to use them please inform us immediately so we can place you in the Fast / Expert group. You must ensure they are in good condition, no more than 5 years old with tread depth indicators still visible 
 
There will be no exceptions to this rule. Please be aware due to numbers on track it will be very unlikely that group changes can be made on the day so please have the correct tyres fitted to your machine prior to or at the event as refunds will not be possible on the day 
 
This rule does not apply to 'Wets' - these will be acceptable in any group as they will only be used in very wet conditions for a matter of safety 
 
If you wish to order tyres or have any tyre queries, please contact Graham Matcham at Continental on 07772 911137 
 
 
 

Rider Information 

IMPORTANT: DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR DRIVING LICENCE!! 
 
Riders must hold a current and full DVLA driving licence or a current ACU race licence. Note: a 33bhp restricted licence is not accepted by the circuits 
 
Preferably one-piece leather or two-piece ZIP together leathers which must zip up all the way round. All MUST be in good condition without holes, rips, tears and definitely NO gaffer tape! 
 
Approved full face helmet (recommended Gold Standard with British Standard kite mark) 
 
Visor in good condition, ie: no scratches, cracks or fogging. Tinted or iridium visors are allowed when weather is sunny 
 
Good quality motorcycle boots (preferably mid calf, not ankle boots), again no holes, (particularly in the soles) rips or tears 
 
Good quality gloves, no holes, rips or tears 
 
Back protectors are advisable but not compulsory 
 
Riders must be 18 years of age or over to participate. The only exception to this rule is for experienced ACU licence holders, but any under 18s must contact us prior to booking to confirm they will be accepted 

Rider Registration & Forms 

You will be required to produce your DVLA driving licence or ACU licence when you arrive at rider registration in the morning. Failure to provide your licence may result in you being refused entry to the track and you will not be entitled to a refund or credit. There may also be a charge (or requested donation!) if a licence check needs to be made to the DVLA 
 
All riders must register and will receive a coloured wristband and colour coded sticker for their session, which is to be clearly displayed on the front of your motorcycle 
 
All riders must attend a compulsory riders briefing and receive a wristband to prove they have attended the briefing 
 
Both wristbands must be worn until the end of the day as they will be checked every time you go on track by the pit lane marshal 
 
If you intend to use a video / bullet camera please ask if you need to complete a permission form as some venues (eg: all MotorSportVision circuits) will require this before you’re allowed on track with a camera. Note: all cameras must be securely mounted to your bike – eg: suction mounts and gaffer tape are not allowed 
 
Your indemnity form(s) will be sent to you via email (or post if you don’t have access to email) prior to the day along with the information pack. Please print off, complete and bring with you on the day as this will save time during registration 
 
Forms will also available on the day if you forget or are unable to print them beforehand 

Riding Standards and Etiquette on the Track 

Good riding standards are an important part in having a safe and enjoyable trackday 
 
Warm up laps are an extremely important part of the day and must be adhered to by all riders. The first session for each group at the start of the day will consist of warm up/sighting laps behind an instructor. On all subsequent sessions until lunch, riders should do at least 1-2 warm up laps to ensure tyres are at the correct temperature. After lunch there will be warm up laps behind the instructor and on subsequent sessions riders again should again do 1-2 warm up laps 
 
During all warm up laps there is a strict no overtaking rule. If this is not adhered to then the offending rider will be warned and if they persist will have their wristbands removed 
 
Remember that you have all day! It is recommended that build your speed up steadily in each session and throughout the day 
 
Use the instructors present on the day – they are very experienced and there to help you. You will learn more about bike control, the bikes capabilities and your own, and finish the day a better and more knowledgeable rider 
 
Dangerous riding will not be tolerated and is defined as follows:- 
Overtaking up the inside of a bend 
 
Overtaking too close. Please give other riders plenty of space - a full arms length - when overtaking 
 
Weaving to warm up tyres 
 
Slowing down too quickly for any reason 
 
When slowing for Red or Yellow flags the throttle should be rolled off so you continue to proceed at half speed – do not brake hard as soon as you see a flag 
 
Wheelies, stoppies, erratic riding and other dangerous manoeuvres are not allowed. You must be in full control of your motorcycle at all times with both hands on the handlebars 
 
Ride on the tarmac and between the white lines at all times 
 
Please remember the Paddock speed limit is 5mph
