    The only reason for the track day being help during the weekday is because we will be getting one whole day (2sessions) no questions asked.

    My number: +919789033600
    TIME: Sooner the better in the morning.... session ends in the evening...



    SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR THE TRACK DAY / RIDER BRIEFING



    These are a set of instructions that should be followed during the event to avoid unnecessary confusions at the venue. These are NOT rules being imposed on anyone. These are instructions given to the riders for their safety.

    1. Everyone should be wearing a riding jacket with elbow and shoulder protectors. A minimum of denim jackets with elbow sliders worn on them.
    2. Gloves are mandatory for any rider planning to ride on the tracks.
    3. Shoes which cover the ankle must be used. Snickers are not entertained.
    4. Use of a knee and shin slider or a knee guard is recommended.
    5. The visor of the helmet should always be closed when riding on the track.
    6. Everyone should go around the tracks only in the clockwise direction (Even in the pits) to avoid confusion and any mishaps.
    7. If a person is willing to come into the pits, he should sit up raise one of his hands after exiting the final corner. This is to indicate the rider behind of your intentions.
    8. When a rider enters the race track from the pits, he is to look behind (at the entry of c1) and then enter the track after everyone is gone.
    9. Hooliganism will not be entertained at any point of time. Remember we are not going there to race, but to know about track riding.
    10. If you have any experts on your tail (e.g.: Killer, Joel) try to give way and learn their lines by observing them.
    11. Overtaking is to be done in proper racing style to avoid any accidents, i.e. an overtaking maneuver is to be carried out strictly on the racing line to avoid collision. This clearly explains that one can overtake if the rider in front fails to apex a corner.
    12. Borrowing bikes is allowed only on mutual agreement. Under a condition”YOU BREAK IT, YOU FIX IT”.
    13. Photographers can walk around the track with proper footwear. (keep a look out for snakes. I remember having eye contact with one for three consecutive laps at the chicane before the bridge.)
    14. If a rider finds an oil leak anywhere, try to keep a distance from those patches and avoid sudden braking or acceleration when on them. (Mostly you fill find saw dust already spread on it, so it won’t be difficult to spot them).
    15. I would require all the riders to post their contact number and emergency contact details. (Emergency contact details will also include: Home phone number, Parent/Guardian’s name and relation. People can also PM me these details if they want these to be private).
    16. Once the red flag is out at the start line, everyone is to make an orderly entry into the pits.

    * The emergency contact details is mandatory for every rider below the age of 19.

    Ah, well. I can make it on 22nd February for sure. 21st, there might be little hitch, thanks to a possible College Day function. If attendance is compulsory, then it might be impossible. AND of course, bringing my own bike depends on whether or not PBK is fast enough. ELD said he'd give me a lift, and I can bring my riding jacket, and gloves.

    Can we please get to know how many of us own protective gear decent enough to last a track day?

    Thumbs up

    7th & 8th would have been okay with me, but I don't see many Bangaloreans taking part in it. I won't be here on the 21st & the 22nd as I will be going to Delhi to attend my brother in law's marriage.

    CHEERS,
    G D
    PEACE
