    I used to tell punters...

    Feet flat on pegs = carthorse
    Toes on pegs = racehorse

    I got a reminder to tuck my feet in yesterday, scraped the toe of my boot round the first hairpin at Snetterton, my mates laughed and called me "duck feet"

    A good trackday, though it was bloody hot, passed a few people, got held up by a few people on 100+ bhp bikes, got passed by a few people.

    6 of us on old bikes, GSXR750M, GSXR750 SRAD, GSXR 7/11M, Z1000J, Z1000J Endurance and my FZR400RR, the SRAD and the Z1000J had minor oil leaks, the 750M failed noise testing first time and I had loose speedo wiring which meant my bike would only rev to 12.5K.

    My mates Z1000J Endurance bike spat a spark plug out in the third session just after he'd passed me, so he spent the day sun bathing in the pits, his bald pate was like a lobster by the end of the day.

    Only thing spoiling the day were some twats who thought it was great to pass as close as possible, one of them scared himself when he had to take to the grass as someone moved out towards the peel in point.

    This was in lower group btw.

    Others can be a pain on track. I remember a bloke on my 1st trackday on a Fazer thou who seemed absolutely hell bent on not letting me passed. I kept running up to him and I'd try and get by with space and without messing us both up and he'd then try and outbrake me (braking much later than he was before) or moving over. I backed off and was considering going through the pits as he was holding me up but I thought he was gonna be dangerous to pass as his Fazer was quicker than the R6 down the straight so I couldn't do it on the power. Anyway 2 corners later he tried the same thing with someone else cocked it up by braking much later for him and although he should of made it round he didn't and went off and crashed. Pillock.

    That’s what track days are all about! Winning. And making other people crash. And getting it reet over.

    And going out in too slow a group to increase your chances of (i) and (ii).
