They dont cover you for wrecking your bike on the track unfortunately........think cartwrim got charged an additional £105 on top of his membership.

Could be wrong though.

Not sure if its been mentioned but take a foot pump and digital tyre pressure reader.

Would they be a bit suspicious if you somehow managed to get it onto the public road outside the track???

check your breakdown policy. I very much doubt a phone operator would know the whereabouts of racetracks if you just gave town or road numbers. Wheeling the bike to the first roundabout outside the silverstone entrance and claim you're visiting relatives would be slightly suspicious tough

Yeah, particularly if the bike is absolutely smashed. They'd have no option surely once they're at the road side???

£20 notes come in very handy in these type of situations

Don't think it's been mentioned but spare levers. It's horrible watching someone missing the action because they're running round trying to fix or find a lever. Oh and a gear linkage rod maybe too, and peg hangers. Have fun!
