Cadwell Park 24/25 August friendly trackday

#1 PostAuthor: ruffle » Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:54 pm

As some of you know, I organise a trackday for the Ixion Mailing List at Cadwell Park and have been doing so for the last 20 years (note to self: stop volunteering to do stuff! :irre ).

It's very much a club sort of thing (v.friendly) and it's all run for the love of it (nobody's paid and no profit is taken).

Anyway, I've got a few places left in what we call the Eeyore group ('normal' trackdays call it the Novice group). All very civilised and relaxed. We even have an, optional, evening meal and get-together afterwards.

It's an ideal event for riders and motorcycles of a 'certain vintage' who want to have a spirited bimble around the best motorcycle circuit in the UK (I've taken my '72 Z1 several times and last year I took my S1C twosmoke so it's not all about plastic fantastics).

All the info's lurking here: http://ruffle.me.uk/cadwell and I'd love to see some Z1OC members come along.

Any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sorry, I would have been very interested to give my Z1R a shake down, but I can't get time off at such short notice. I know what it takes to organise these events so I hope the places get filled and you get to break even.

All the best

As above i'm afraid, too short notice to get time off work.
Next year maybe.

What a fantastic couple of days. Made to feel very welcome by Russell and the rest of the team . A very mixed bag of bikes on the track from a katana to a Rg gamma and loads of modern stuff.The excellent weather was booked by Russell which led to loads of good track time. In my group, although we had a couple of people going on excursions, no red flags for both the days was a revelation. I had a great time playing with a couple of guys on more modern machinery and the Lawson made a good account of itself. Hopefully a few more of us can get there next year and create a link between our two clubs.

Glad you enjoyed yourself.

The Lawson looked really great and several people commented on it.

I'll give the forum a bit more notice next year and hopefully swell the ranks of 'proper' bikes.
