Classic Cadwell Park!
If you’re inspired to ride on track by our recent Welsh Classic Festival adventure at Anglesey (see page 38) there’s still time to get on the Classic Bike Trackdays event at Cadwell Park in July. Formed in 2011, CBT provides a real, fun taste of trying your bike out on track – in a safe and controlled environment. After all, these beauties weren’t just made to be looked at! Rob and Darin realised that there wasn’t anyone out there giving us classic bike riders the chance to enjoy a slightly less frenetic experience out on track, so they decided to form Classic Bike Trackdays. Classic Bike Trackdays events are open to anyone with a bike built before 1995 or considered to be within the spirit of the events (Bertie’s turned up on stuff from the late 1990s, so they are relaxed rules.) So, whether it’s a Japanese two-stroke, or an oil-cooled dinosaur, Italian V-twin thoroughbred or British thumper – all are welcome. Top-notch instruction is available throughout the day from professional ACU qualified instructors (oh, and Paul Berryman…) And most days Griff Woolley is on hand with his wizard spannering should your steed give you any issues. With this event over two days, there are 11 hours of track-time up for grabs and Cadwell is just about the most wonderful place to ride around: the first part is open, flowing and lush green, then from the mountain to across the finish line it’s closed-in, fun and frantic – a bit like attacking the Death Star.
