Have a read up on how Black & White's first Novice Track Day went......

It was a great success by the looks of it!
Also had a great chat with Paul yesterday and I'm now booked onto the August 12th novice day.
Dont put it off folks, I can see this date selling out quickly.
Be great to have a decent SV turn out!

I attended the June 2 day. It was great. Even the poor morning weather turned out to be a good thing, as it facilitated an "open" track experience. With lots of on and off the track for instruction. With a low student to coach ratio (I was in a group of 2) you would be hard pressed to get any better "attention". My coach Richard was great to work with, adapting to each of our individual needs. Certainly helped build my confidence, and upped the enjoyment of the day. Was it worth the extra money?--Absolutley

How about an "adventure bike " only track day?

Possibly narrowing the market a bit too much I think. It's been suggested that I should run trackdays just for classic bikes, ladies only etc. But the costs to run these days are very high and it's a big risk to throw all of that at such a small niche.

A 'Novice' day covers pretty much all of these and you get the personal instruction that makes it a special day.

Also, to be honest, Black & White Bikes was set up as a specialist track and race prep business and although we are opening our doors more to road riders, having a day specially devoted to adventure bikes on track is a bit far from our core business.

But saying that, if you were to start up a thread on an adventure bike forum and find me 60 adventure bike riders willing to do a day like this then I'll happily go for it.

I think you should have been given a trophy for camping out at Cadwell the night before!

So pleased that you enjoyed the day and I know Richard had a good day too and he had one of the hardest groups to work with just because the 2 of you were a quite a lot different. I looked at changing things around for you but all 3 of you said it was fine and were quite happy to carry on as you were, so that's what we did.

Looking forward to the next one on 12th August now. There should be reports coming out soon in MCN and Performance Bikes magazine so keep an eye out for them.
