    Manfeild track day, 19 April 2009

    For thos who missed the last one, another one is coming soon.

    Correct me if im wrong but a believe the next track day is on the 19th April.
    I'm pretting sure this is a SUNDAY so sorry to all you church goers wanting to come - although a CD track day should take priority!

    I'm sure someone will post more details closer to the time but i thought I'd give everyone the head up in advance.

    Yes, our next track day is Sunday 19 April so put it in your diary now! Please note the slightly increased cost for the track day - the cost of hiring the track has increased and unfortunately we have to pass that on.

    Just $50 per person. Slow, medium, fast and race sessions.
    All glass to be taped, bikes to be of WOF standard.
    Full bike gear to be worn.

    Scrutineering starts at 8.30am.
    Maximum number of 120 bikes, first in first served. NO prebookings.

    This is arguably New Zealand's cheapest and best-run track day, just ask anyone who's been to one in the last 20 years!

    For more information, please contact club president Andrew Pugh on 0274 463 870.
    Yes, I am pedantic about spelling and grammar so get used to it!

    i have read in a couple of ads for the 08 ones that you need a licence, does that apply to this one?

    Yes, you must have a licence to ride whatever you plan to use for the track day. It is not a race meet so you don't need a race licence, just a normal one.

    Sweet! Done a few of these now and they're ALWAYS good value. First time for the Daytona, should be interesting.
    It's only Rock and Roll but I like it

    Ooo, don't be a wuss - turn up anyway! Half the time the forecast isn't that great but on the day of the last one it rained for about half an hour then was fine for the rest of the day so a lot of people missed out by heading home or not coming in the first place.

    It's actually quite confidence-inspiring to get some track time in the rain, just take it easy and don't push yourself too hard.

    Fantastic value and an awesome day out. My riding skills and confidence improved hugely from the few runs last time.

    I would recommend this day. Met heaps of local faces as well.
    Even nice just to visit.

    And who stayed home last time?

    Yeah I did the last VMCC one when it was pouring down in the morning, dry inthe afternoon

    I shat myself about going out in the rain, but i actually loved it and would be kinda excited if it rained

    Me - been a club member for more than 10 years and don't ride the track days (been there, done that) so I don't feel the need to be at every one! Had other things to do last time so the weather didn't play much of a part in my absence.

    Just to ask a stoopid question: are race/track bikes allowed?

    Honda's obviously won't be a problem but I'm guessing some of the other quality-challenged manufacturers might struggle to meet the criteria so I'm asking on their behalf
