I have only done Brands, Silverstone and Rockingham. Brands I like the best because it is simple but has the hills in it so was also interesting. I was thinking of widening the options a little and not sure where to go next. Any recommendations...?
You want to try Oulton Park. Nearly 3 miles of everything you could want from a circuit.

It depends which bike you're going to use. Silverstone GP and Donnington are awesome but best on a bike with 120+ bhp, otherwise as Mister c says Oulton is pretty good, as is Cadwell.

Mallory Park! Same ballpark distance-wise from where you live as Silverstone or Rockingham.

but a crap track, with poor facilities, surface and no run off areas.

I'd suggest doing Donington, BEFORE they change the layout for the F1 next year.

Easy - don't run off the track!

Facilities - He's been to Brands, Silverstone and Rockingham. - it's all downhill from there (except possibly Donington)

Trackwise - Mallory is a nice little track and well suited to the SV

just my personal opinion, i thought the surface was pretty poor in a few places. could be a really good circuit just needs some work.

I'd love to finally do a track day there. But money is going to be mega tight come Septemeber which is when i'd probably do it.

I've got Cadwell on 21st September as well as France for 10 days later this month and the Peaks weekend in early September.

If my wallet isn't well and truly rinsed by then i might do the 23rd with Hottrax or another late September date with No Limits. Will have to book well in advance though...

Keep me posted with what you chose?
