hang on a sec, you're saying your mate is a cage racer and they let you out on the same stretch of tarmak as a formula vee, while you're on a 250 4 stroke? is that right?

Dont ever do that, youll be smacked out of it when the quicker rider makes his move past you and you move into his way. Sure way to be mangled and mangle someone else

There's no class to race a cbr 250 ,trackdays grand but you're wasting your time getting one to go racing .
That was quick on your behalf Jay, yes thats me. binned both in august but at least i know now i can survive it. Have bug in me to try it. just for the fun

Ha ha, thought it might be you alright when I seen the tuono , tried keeping with you a few times and was pushing hard doing it Get yourself a litre bike and enter the 1010's , there'll be flag seminars coming up in the next few weeks , join a club while you're there , follow scoops links for the info , any more questions fire away

Think I remember you on that red tuono you were fairly shifting, tried to keep up with you and had no chance. I'm sure you'll love racing, best of luck

what Jay said. But you`ll also have to do the training day as it would be your first year racing. It`s usually early February. Best of luck with it. Just remember it`s fooking addictive.


P.s. As the lads are saying, Don`t get out of the way for anyone. that shit will get you hurt. Keep your line and let the faster lad overtake you. That way everyone knows whats happening.
