The dates up for next years SouthWest Bikers Track day - Friday 8th June

http://www.southwestbikers.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=91342

About ten of us did it this year and it was a really great day. Llandow is only small, 11/2 K, but itís twisty and thereís no long straight to rest on so lots of excitement. Lots more time on track than Castle Combe and a very warm and friendly bunch, very informal.

Itís about an hour and a half to get there (80 miles) so no need to stop over.

http://www.llandow.com/?page_id=133

And one of the best things is itís £55.00 for the day

They are running Novice / Inters / Fast Groups but there are only 17 places in each so you need to think about getting your name down sooner rather than later.

WB Review of last years day:

http://www.wiltshirebikers.co.uk/cgi-bin/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1307206510

This is a South West Bikers event and you need to be a member to attend, but they are a friendly bunch and are always looking for new members ;)

Would be good to have a few more than we did last year and it's a great circuit for a first timer / novice to have a go on !

I'll start a list :)

yeah, you have to register on swb first, introduce yourself etc. play nice/polite...

then stick a cheque in the post or pm me for bank details or paypal me the correct fee along with your full name, contact details and which group you want to be in.

thanks

My PC is broke and my phone doesn't like the llandlow webby.
Does llandlow have a cc limit? If they let 125s come and play then I may be tempted.

Honda_Star
30-10-11, 08:51 AM
Should be able to - contact Billinom8s from the south west bikers forum who is organising it but I'm sure you will be fine if you have a full licence

Thanks star will give him a shout :)

billinom8
01-11-11, 01:47 AM
i contacted llandow today and they seem ok with a 125 showing us all how it's done.

they were only concerned really with the noise level and if the bike was able to 'keep up' with the flow.

if g3o's bike is as fast as he says then he will have lots of fun buzzing people. ;D ;D

NoYou

02-11-11, 01:33 PM
You'll have a ball at Llandow G3o, it's not a long track so you won't get too lost down the straights and should be able to keep plenty of corner speed too 8-) Star was still on an A2 licence when she rode there in 2010 and they weren't fussed about it. I don't think that you'd be able to ride on a regular trackday elsewhere on an A2 but you can make the most of it at Llandow.

Enjoy....

From looking at the Llandow particpants (http://www.southwestbikers.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&p=213487&sid=6073274571cb6e3dcb 9070330baa3555#p213487) thread just now Don, there are 12 Novice places, 11 Intermediates, and 14 in the fast Group so I'd say we could squeeze you in somewhere mate. Seriously, you and Mikkie should go in the fast group, by and large it's no quicker than the Inters on a regular trackday, and you'll get frustrated being held up by slower people in the lower groups. Check Gerry's first post on this thread for details and sign up (you'll need to register on SWB first, but that's pretty painless) 8-)

Dabz has been scouring the Book of Racing Excuses and come up with a pretty rubbish one - why not use your triple? Flick rode his at Snetterton, which is much faster than Llandow and he loved every minute of it. The track isn't fast enough to make a fairing a must-have, and the triple would be fine round it. The only person who'll crash it is you, and that isn't very likely is it? :-? ::)

Ahh but IF I came off it'd be a nightmare now it's having a custom paint job!

The saving for another Daytona has started - and I'm praying that business stays good enough to buy my one as an end of year bonus in the spring :p

29-11-11, 04:33 PM
Great news Ade (Flick) but will it be on your Triple or a track bike ????

Mikkie: That's the one, OK, it's not quite a Snetterton but it's a lot more fun than it looks. No time at all for a mental rest, horrid little kink (fortunately with an "Oh **** Lane" eh Justin) ;D and not lots of time to line somebody up on the straights (if you can call them straights) ;)

Good little cafe and a amusing briefing !

I remember I was happy enough to see the flag at the end of the last session.

Will be great :-)
G

Scotty
29-11-11, 04:35 PM
Yep, this is the layout that we use (well, it's not like there's a choice of layouts such as we find at many other circuits, this is it!) It's a bit like a miniature of the Snetterton of old, before they created the new 300 layout with the excellent infield section.

As surmised, the "other " layout queried is the adjacent go-kart track. There is a hangar straight there on account of the whole lot being on the site of a 2nd World War airfield. Little anorak point - the hangars still visible across the back of the circuit were recently used in the last series of Torchwood as the location of the Cowbridge "processing centre" or whatever they called it, Cowbridge being the local "large village" where, incidentally, decent fish and chips can be purchased en route to the Llandow campsite on the Thursday evening prior to the trackday... :)

Mikkie1986
29-11-11, 04:36 PM
I am looking forward to it G... The first one which was coming up on google at first was tiny... Then i found the actual one we are on. Looks like great fun! :)

Oh yes indeedy Nick, grab some fish & chips from Cowbridge just before getting to the campsite, eat, set up camp, crack open a beer or two and walk the track (much easier than Snett as it's only about 1/3 the length!).... 8-) 8-) 8-)

Hey Trev,

Welcome aboard, joining SWB is painless enough and I'm sure you'll really enjoy your day on track. I've ridden at Llandow for the last five SWB days and we've never had any noise issues, nor any testing either 8-)

billinom8
17-12-11, 08:36 PM
if you are having problems joining swb its cos we have spambot issues. pm me on here and i will sort the registration with you.

Dabz
18-12-11, 10:09 AM
Yup we've changed ours so an admin has to manually approve each new account - which means rejecting hundreds of spammers every day :/ we're banning the IPs too but they're all using spoof IPs so not helping

billinom8
19-12-11, 12:53 PM
ok, i have been informed that our registration system is working. only 5 spaces left in novice if anyone is thinking of joining in.

also, if you are going to send payment either by paypal or cheque, can you pm me through here please ? novice is always the first to fill up and places will go on a first paid first placed basis. After that it's step up to inter or go on the reserve list and wait for permission slips to be revoked. ;D

Sorry fellow TrackDayers, in the excitement of seeing this beautiful machine I completely forgot to tell you whoís it was. I simply rushed to the keyboard and jotted down a few words of admiration.

I was simply overcome by itís sleek lines and the howl as it accelerated away from me. I was secretly hoping that they would offer me a little sit on it, but I was busy tinkering with the Gixer and they had to rush off, you know how it is.

Anyway, sorry about that and I look forward to seeing it on track as Iím sure you do.

Just remembered the colour too, itís really nice, just the right shade as well, will look awesome on track.

He just loves the piss-taking he gets during the briefing for riding the Supermoto (and over the PA when it dies on track) but the super Benelli hedge-trimmer will probably be present as the fall-back option... ;) ;) ;)

Oooh, I was sorting through the tyre pile in the shed last night (because it fell over basically... ::)) and I found a front Dunlop D207GP (120/70 ZR17) that's still very useable and is a seriously good tyre - I wish they still made them as they're a brilliant intermediate tyre.
If anyone wants it for Llandow they're welcome to it, just buy me a beer or a Smellyburger sometime 8-)

Much as I'd love to be out there in the wind and rain, I'm stuck in this horrible warm, dry office til Tuesday, but will be thinking of you all (and praying the weather improves before Snetters)

Have fun y'all! ;)

08-06-12, 12:30 PM
A wise decision was taken to cancel the trackday and offer another day FOC for the SWBs on Saturday 18th August, plus £20 off a day on track tomorrow for anyone who fancied hanging around, having paid for fuel and the bridge to get here. The forecast is much better for tomorrow so a handful of us have stayed on; me, Star (eventually making her mind up), Shammy666 (gone home but coming back in the morning) and two other SWBs, Rob and Paul. Right now we're in the Outlet Mall in Bridgend, seeing what's on at the cinema... (not much else to do during monsoon season) ::)
