No Limits Trackdays
16 October at 22:24

URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT‼

Today there was a incident at Oulton Park where 3 bikes was stolen while in the paddock and the riders was attended the safety briefing. We are asking everyone to share photos of the bikes below in a hope that it may make them too hot to handle and so help to recover them.
Investigations are ongoing between Cheshire Police, MSV Oulton Park and ourselves.
Early indications after the CCTV has been viewed is, a number of occupants in what is thought a stolen van was situated in the paddock while awaiting a quiet opportunity to strike. The briefing offering a ideal moment for that strike.
This is extremely unusual and isolated incident for No Limits and the first I can recall in a number of years despite running 400 track days a year however practical measures are now being explored now to lessen the chances of this being repeated in the future.
In the meantime, can all customers please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity within the paddock and assure no bikes are left unattended.
BIKES IN QUESTION ARE; Blue Honda SP1. Yamaha R1 and a Yamaha 600
If anyone has information about this, please contact Cheshire police, Oulton Park or ourselves.
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

This has happened over the years. No idea if anything's recovered. They're probably in bits on ebay within a few hrs. Might be sticking chain on mine in the pits in future though...
Don't care who you are, how much you have, how powerful you are. You still sit on the toilet with your pants around your ankles. Yep, it's a level playing field..

More likely they'll be in the back of a van heading into eastern Europe.
