R-silaxin's Trackday thread

Well, it's official! I'm headed to the track this weekend! This thread will host all my trackdays and have plenty of pictures and videos from all the trackdays and races that I will be doing for the un-forseen future!

This weekend looks like a two day track weekend, which may also include an endurance race... We'll see, a few teams need riders... Idk if I'll be up to it after two almost full days on the track, and then try and participate in an endurance race...

Wish me luck this weekend! Any advice is appreciated, and a list of what to bring would be great! Taking a camera and two GoPro's so I should get plenty of great footage!


RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

Re: R-silaxin's Trackday thread

Agreed. Just go out there to learn and have fun. You don't want to be out there with a race group when you're still trying to learn the ropes.

Re: R-silaxin's Trackday thread

Good luck and subbed for pics and videos.

No race license yet... But this endurance race is a little different... I may end up on a team racing a Ninja 250... Just for shits and gigs... We'll see what happens...

I'll prob just grab some popcorn and enjoy that race after my TD's...

Really siked about getting out there... Just going to soak up as much as I can and learn as much as possible... Doubt I'll be goin nuts just yet... Just going to get my feet wet, and start learning my local track.

At just over an hour away, I'll be going to this track quite regularly! Wish me luck7

Have fun, keep an open mind, and seek feedback as much as you can. Be a fiend for help, information and suggestions. Having that open mind and the enthusiasm you have will put you where you wanna be, up on two with one knee on the ground!

Good luck and have fun!

That's exactly what I'll be doing!

Headed out there with two racer/coaches. They seem cool as shit and I plan to soak up as much as possible from these guys! I'm going to the track a blank slate as it were, and asking tons of questions about what I'm doing right, and wrong. Using what I've learned each session and just growing and developing my skills as a rider. These guys I'm going with are great guys, and know it's my first TD but that I'm bringing some descent skills. Nothing close to any of these guys, but a cornerstone to build off of.

SO SIKED!


RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.
