THE DEFINITION OF A UK TRACK DAY:
First and foremost a track day is an opportunity for you the rider to explore and enjoy riding your bike on a race circuit. It is our job to make sure that you do so with maximum enjoyment and minimal risk with the best value for money! That is why you will not find on a Focused Events day, any form of general testing being condoned or allowed.
These are new at FE and are the best way of ensuring you have maximum fun by being put in the group best suited to your ability on the day. We fit all bikes with transponders in the morning and then after an early lunch, we make any changes as required to the groups before we re start for the next 4 hours of track fun. After the event we send you by email a record of your day.
So when you as a customer book onto an event, what can you expect? Well firstly when you do book you will be asked a number of questions. If you are a first time track day rider you will be required to wear, for your first event, a yellow fluorescent jacket. This is for your safety. It highlights to other riders that you are in the slower group and that this is your first time on a trackday. They will give you more time and space to ensure you have a great day. However if you are a regular trackday rider we will ask you about your experience, the type of bike that you ride and then finally what group you would like to ride in. We will however reserve the right to move you before the event into another group depending on the requirement for the groups available. We often explain this in the following way;
If you look at a train leaving a station every day, you will not get the same people getting on that same train every day. Race circuit use is the same, if you come to any circuit with us, you will of course realise that every day we have different people coming to the circuit to have fun, but not the same people every day. Therefore before an event we will look at the experience of the riders taking part and sometimes we will move some before the event, into a group that is more suitable for them on the day. That does not mean of course that this decision goes unchecked. Shortly after the briefing, when the groups commence you will see our Operations manager either on the Pit wall or in Race control monitoring the groups and then moving 1 or 2 riders up or down in the groups to get each group's ability levels as even as possible. Our Instructors also carry out this operation throughout the day and again in the afternoon the groups are checked for continued levels of equal abilities.
After you have signed on for the day you will be required to attend a compulsory riders briefing which will explain to you the rules for the day. The briefing will also give you some useful tips and of course there will be a couple of light jokes to start your day but the tone will be simple. There are rules that must be followed and they are there for your safety. If they are not followed you will only be given one warning, after that you will be asked to leave. Everyone's safety is paramount at FE and we do not allow any form of inconsiderate or dangerous riding. That is why people enjoy days with us and keep coming back. They simply feel safe because they know we care!
After the briefing its three sighting laps behind the instructors and then you will be allowed onto the circuit for the first time on your own. Please remember that we are there to help in any way we can. Everyone at our events from marshals to Race control are monitoring the circuit activity and if we can help in any way we will. Sometimes we will come and discuss with customers ways to improve their riding and lines on the circuit, and the operations manager is always in the pitlane to offer help and advice. Remember at FE its about having a fun day out at the circuit.
THE DEFINITION OF A EUROPEAN TRACK EVENT
EUROPEAN TACK HOILDAYS....JEREZ / PARK ALGAR / CATALUNYA / ALMERIA / CARTAGENA / MOTORLAND AND MORE!
Please note : All Euro events are Chrono for maximum enjoyment.
We are the market leaders in this field....purely and simply because we will always put you, the customer, 1ST! After all why should you stay in a poor rundown hotel when it's so easy to have a 4 or 5 star hotel. Your bike will be transported to and from the event by our own fully insured transport systems and this includes (for an extra cost) a UK collection and delivery service if you require. When it comes to the circuit, again we will only use the best European venues. In Spain and Portugal we only use the very best facilities and now we are also going to other great circuits and locations around Europe as well. We will always be on hand throughout the event. From the moment you arrive at the hotel we will take care of you.....all you have to do is sit back, relax and look forward to nights in a GREAT HOTEL in addition to 3 or 4 days on a FANTASTIC CIRCUIT and again WE ALWAYS HAVE STAR RIDERS IN THE PITLANE ON THESE EVENTS RUNNING OUR FAMOUS RIDER CLINIC!..... "SO REMEMBER......STAY FOCUSED !"
For those of you who are just starting out in the world of Track Day experience, this is a cost effective option to leave your pride and joy at home so you can venture out with a little less to worry about. See the separate page for hire bike details in the left hand column.
Or maybe you just haven’t got two wheels available at the moment! Give us a call and we will set you up with our fully prepared fleet of current model hire bikes.
All our bikes are prepared to the highest standards and are the same spec as any Production Supersport or Superbike that can be bought today. They are supplied to FE by the manufacturer and except for aftermarket and colour coded bodywork, the same in every way as the bike you can ride on the road.
