Steves good - its thought to help folks looking for a second or two ...

Exactly what I need, have you had any time with him? One of the group I have been with and he got to sub 1,50 so sounds promising, lets hope we don't have to wait 12 months before we can even consider it.

Our bikes are still out there on the Bikes on holiday deal...

Quote from: Jimhas7 on March 13, 2020, 10:22:07 pmNice footage. Have you got a complete lap so I can do my homework (Hoping my April trip goes ahead...)  :grin:

My mate went off at the turn before on the second session of the first day. He stayed on but buckled both wheels and it cost him 500 euros to get the wheels sorted out. He didnt get back out until Saturday PM as a result...  :rofl:

It was a good week though, did a PB but still im yet to crack 1.50 though but not too far away now.

You were going well looking at the timings  :moto:

Yes the camera is with the bike but I've got a 1.45 on camera I think from memory.

Ended up in the top half dozen riders from 162 attendee's behind three superbike/superstock lads in the top 3 spots so dont feel too bad depsite my advacning years lol.

I doubt you'll get too many people much below 1.50 on a trackday fella so thats a good effort !!



Not bad for me as it was the first time back in 12 months, I made the top 40... just by the end of the event so I may have made a mobile chicane for you guys in group 4 if id got to do my time quicker earlier in the week. It is probably the only way I would get sub 1.50 being at the bottom of Group 4 and seeing what you guys are doing rather than now being one of the quickest in group 3 on any event.

Would love to see best sectors added together and for sure id expect to see an ideal lap you could be getting. Get that video up if you get a chance, please

My times are all fairly consistent over a session, typically within a second of each lap so pleased to be able to repeat the times so consistently. Need data (Or most likely Broggie which was the plan at the next event) to drag me round further with times at the circuit.

If we get any more track time out there (I have 6 more days hopefully they are honored when the opportunity returns) been

I dont want to see a cap but if thats whats coming I guess there is not much we can do.

I am just glad I lived through the petrol head generation and had all my fun when I was growing up, I am planning on keeping my bike as long as I can and making the most of it on track where I can use more of the HP than I ever should on a public road albeit within my meagre capabilities :rofl:

Oh and id say as we have landed at 200BHP then why cut back just stop it there?

Use them for the euro trips, seem to be good value and well spoken about in the track day scene

They do travel insurance too

Rc8r sounds like a great halfway house. Unusual enough to feel special without being so rare it's a liability.


Made of cheese... some one I know has one.. it got knocked off its stand by a car parking next to it and fell to bits  :rofl:

They are a great bike though id go for one to tick the box of having had one  :thumbsup:

ooh some lovely looking bikes you have in mind, I do love a euro track day trip, EPIC they are  :afro:

Id suggest getting a BMW S1000rr or Gen 4 ZX10r with all the electronic trickery and Gizmos I reckon you would pick one up well within budget. My mates recently got a Gen 4 ZX10r and apart from the shocking colour scheme it wants for nothing.

My old gen 3 (Lacks all the gizmos and latest electronics) holds its own, and you can pick similar IL4`s up for around the 4K 5K mark. Thatll give you spare cash for trackday trips, tyres or upgrades when fettling.

Just a thought

Two HP4 race s1000`s were at Jerez last week, one was Baron Von Grumble (Look up is you tube video review of the bike, quickest of the event he was (1.49 I think)... Amazing pieces of Kit Chris said himself he couldn't ride anything else as fast..!!

Actually heres a link to his reviews, top two from the Jerez week..

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=baron+von+grumble+jerez

I know they are not the exact same but if these are anything like that, 68K for the race and 15K for the entry level version of the new model, whats not to like  :moto:
