Epic session at Cadwell Park

Post by menzies3032 » Sep 3rd, '19, 00:48

Hi All

This one was a bit special for me. Having moved up to Fast Group recently and this being the first time at Cadwell was not quite sure what to expect. I spent most of the day running 1:47 / 1:48s and fitting in but when we got to the last session most people had packed up due to the hot heat so had most of the track to a few riders.

This is where the fun begins. This session I hunt down a rider just a little quicker then me and am so close to passing so many times. The last full lap of the session I manage to pull a 1:45,5 which I was really happy with.

For a front row seat on some high speed action check this one out.

Need to get back to Cadwell at some point. Just the drive puts me off, seems to take forever!

Yes i had seen this and properly puts me to shame.... but that's the rule of track days there is always somebody quicker then you. As long as your happy with how you did that's all that matters.
