Default Re: B&W Bikes Instructed Trackday - August 12th

Well it was an awesome day to be honest. We had amazing weather which helped a lot and the feedback I received was 100% positive.

I do know that Bunkle (Dave) had a tricky day as he was on an unusual bike that he had borrowed at the last minute and desperately didn't want anything to happen to it but hopefully he will be along at some point to describe the day from his point of view.

For me, organising the day was hard work, actually f**king hard work!! but totally rewarding with the comments and smiling faces that I got in return.

More are planned for next year with more tracks and maybe other formats being introduced too, so watch this space.

If you want to see some photos, they are available on the Black & White website

(in the 'Gallery' section) and also on the Facebook page

We do have our first trackdays coming up later in May at Cadwell Park. We are running a new 2 day format but you can choose to do Day 1 or Day 2 or both.

Both days are based on instruction and learning rather than just cheap track time but we do put a lot off added extras into the package to give value for money.

Free photography by Alex James
Free suspension advice and set up
Free technical and tyre support
Free home made cake

Day 1 is 7x 30 minute sessions with an instructor working with you all day.
Day 2 is 7x 20 minute sessions with instructors allocated to your group only to help you on track and give plenty of feedback in the paddock afterwards.

The 2 groups for Day 1 are called 'Novice' and 'Inters' and we also have a 'Fast' group in Day 2.

Day 1 is 250. Day 2 is 150 and if you book both days then we give you a 10% discount down to 360.

Honda CBR600RR hire bikes are available for 175 per day

The next dates are 18th and 19th May at Cadwell Park and for a bit more info please follow these links

Is it the same format for the one at Rockingham in August?

Here's a decent review of last years event that Joanna Benz has written on her blog.

We have changed things a bit since she had her day at Cadwell and can help Novice, Intermediate and even Advanced group riders with 2 different format days. But still an interesting read.

and an email that I received today after the 2 day event on 18th and 19th May at Cadwell Park.

'What a brilliant event over the last two days. In the last 10 months I have done approx 50 days on track and have done the MSV academy, Ron Haslam race School both levels, several exclusive events with focused including tuition from Hodgy, Andrew Pitt and others and by far your event was the best organised, friendly well run and value for money I have been on.

I was fortunate enough to enjoy tuition from 3 different instructor and would like to give a special thanks to Johhny and Nathan. Nathan managed to get 6 seconds off my time in one session, he gave very good clear instruction.

The cake is an inspired thought that makes everyone feel like its a family event.

I will definitely be booking again'


I don't think I can add anything other than a massive thank you to all the people who helped, instructed, took part or just came to watch. It was a brilliant (if a bit damp on Wednesday) couple of days.
