Fast Bikes - - TRACK DAY GUIDE -

Wel­come to Fast Bikes’ track­day guide. Whether you’re a com­plete track vir­gin or sea­soned cir­cuit pro, we’re sure there’s plenty in this pocket-sized pam­phlet to ab­sorb and ex­ploit in real time. From es­sen­tial tips on prepa­ra­tion and nu­tri­tion, to garage must-haves and track-based tu­ition, there’s some­thing ben­e­fi­cial for ev­ery­one among these hal­lowed pages.

Track­days aren’t just a leisure ac­tiv­ity. They’re a way of life, an ad­dic­tion, a con­sti­tu­tion and a multi-mil­lion pound busi­ness for some. The sim­ple fact is, once you’ve started, you just can’t stop – no mat­ter what fi­nan­cial im­pli­ca­tions are in­volved. Spank­ing your loved one on track not only teaches you new­found bike con­trol, but also the lim­its of your steed in a safe en­vi­ron­ment, which will prove ad­van­ta­geous when back on the roads.

De­spite re­cent noise is­sues with many cir­cuits in the UK, track­days have never been so ac­ces­si­ble with nu­mer­ous events ev­ery week. And when the good old UK win­ter strikes, the Euro­pean track­day scene takes over from Oc­to­ber to March, of­fer­ing end­less sunny sky (and dry, hope­fully...) op­por­tu­ni­ties.

There’s no hid­ing from the fact that your first ever track­day can be an in­tim­i­dat­ing prospect, par­tic­u­larly if you’re fly­ing solo, although this guide will un­doubt­edly al­le­vi­ate that pre-ride trep­i­da­tion. Track­days: the best thing since Rachel Ri­ley was born.

En­joy the ride.

The calm be­fore the storm...
