    Some 'behind the scenes' work is on the go to see if we can book a weekend or two next year at one or two tracks in the Gauteng area...
    To hold a training/ practice day on the track for the novice riders.


    So - let's gauge some interest here.
    Forget when and how much for now... who's interested ?

    Class C and D only !

    Class C = Overtaking on straights only (not in a corner)... For those can ride quite well and want some 'corner time'.

    Class D = Novice - NO OVERTAKING... For those who are new to riding. Speed will be kept to a minimum.
    Riders with Pillions will be allowed on the track - NO OVERTAKING

    The track may be opened for one Class B session, to let the instructors blow the cobwebs out ;)


    We'll organise a safe spot for the kids to play - with a water slide, jumping castle, sleeping area, safe place to ride bikes etc.


    The Instructors for the day will NOT be accredited instructors, however we will most likely be under the umbrella of an accredited riding academy.


    Instructors on the day (class A & B riders) *Must be TB members*
    -Crash
    -JMass
    -Skinny
    -DocRip

    Class C riders interested:

    Hey Crashman.

    Obviously you can include Skinny and myself

    BUT.......
    There must be a class B & A as we really need to accomodate all potential riders out in the TB clan. As well as if you only have 2 classes, namely C & D, your sessions are going to be ontop of each other. Riders need to relax for more than 20 minutes between sessions. Make sense??

    With the Doc-man putting alot of thought into this over the last few months i think we should maybe have a meeting with the man to understand the finer details of financing this in a way that does not too negatively impact any one persons (or TB coffers) pocket.

    Then, Kyalami is unaffordable, so we need to focus on Phakisa.

    As far as instructors go, again i think we must include Doc. He knows more than any of us (of course Sheldon knows more) regarding such an event.

    I like lots

    Why??? You gonna ride slower later in the day??? Guess age catches up fast... ;)

    Classes:
    A - ****** fast!
    B - Normal fast!
    C - Lekker
    D - Beginners

    Yeah - told the committee a while ago about Doc's suggestion. This will be great for TB as it again focuses on safety & training!

    YES! Please!!!!

    Would we need leathers for Class D? Only got Cordura pants and Jackets

    Maybe time to go visit Auntie Vivante!

    I could ask Otherhand to help babysit?

    Someone else got a trailer? I'll tow to Phakisa.
    Most other sports only require one ball

    Guys, this is only in the "is there interest" stage... so all suggestions are welcome.

    JMass - I hear you about the resting thing... and would LOVE to have a class B in the mix... do we need class A as well ?
    Everybody crashes.

    Let's see who's interested first. And then discuss the details.

    I do see 3 classes of 40min each. Believe me you will dead tired by 1.

    Class: Open - (mainly a B class)
    Class: Novice - Been riding for a while and maybe 1 or 2 track days
    Class: New - Never been on a track before and / or new to riding

    It will be a TB track day presented by Track Time Institute ? That way we are accredited with various insurances.
