If anyone is in the area of Snetterton on Sunday, come and say hello. Spend some money and get a ride around the track with me (if your brave enough) in Lance and donate to charity wink

I would advise on wearing a helmet at all times with cockers, Tony.

Even if you're having tea and cake with him yes

I won't be attending, but is Snetterton a good track to do track days on? I quite fancy doing one there next year.

It is an easy track to drive but Coram driven properly cretes massive tyre wear on left side, so drive it slowly. 2 very fast straights (152 MPH) though ended with very good corners & the famous bombhole.

Doubt I'd be getting up to 150+ on a 600cc bike! Have watched a few videos of it, looks good. If I can find 2 track days back to back I'll do them next year. Quite a long way for just one day smile

Well having recovered from the day, I took 21 paying passengers out and raised £1890.00 (£90 per ride).

I used over 2 tanks of fuel, but what a great day. Some of you should come out and give a ride to some very appreciative people and raise some money in the process.

I see on the East Anglian thread the Murciélago had a 360 moment. With Bruce having to avoid someone elses 'flying bonnet' rolleyes it could have been a little expensive for one or two but fortunately no major issues I believe.
I didnt leave Norwich until about 4.30ish and it was down to 1degree most of the way home - hmm winter tyres???? hehe Actually using common sense and respect the Hedge Finder tyres worked well really.

PS had another listen to Lance as I walked back to my car - sounds like such a pussycat nono

Well done Cockers, good effort! How did the car drive..?

Have done similar for Stroke Association at Combe but noise limits are getting tighter everywhere frown What was the Snetts limit?

It's 102 DB on bike track days. Not sure if its the same for cars.

The car was awesome, I really now know what the boys at BR have achieved and it is a different beast. Sadly I need some additional silencing as it was static 107 and drive-by 96. The limit on drive-by was 92 frown. However after being warned, the marshal told me where I was to run in silent mode and where I could run whatever I liked biggrin. They especially required the full noise past the pits because a crowd of marshalls had gathered just to hear it go by.....
