Just go to the Silverstone site and book trackday. I booked because never been there and fancied a go and it's on bank holiday Monday so no need to take time off work (more days for later). It's been described to me as like having 3 lanes of the motorway to yourself but with corners. Also cause I'm on naked z1000 thought national circuit might suit me better - less time at high speed.
I also booked it early cause the premier inn 5mins away has plenty of room at only £39.

I've been there twice, both times unable to ride.
Lucky really as it was 80 bikes per group !

Silverstones own days have less riders than a No Limits day used to, hence why more expensive. Silverstone place instructors on the corners and watch, moving people about in the groups if needed.

They run a really good day, get a voucher for breakfast when sign on too, or did last year. First session is longer to accommodate sighting laps and think get 6 sessions in a day.

I might be tempted by this closer to the time.

That's good then. No Limits are my least favourite provider, it always feels more hectic.

Unsurprisingly they've cancelled. They're refunding me. I did look but they don't have any future dates planned that suit me otherwise I would have just transferred to a later date. Doh
