Blyton Park Track Day - 02/10/2011
Chasing Adrian in his Fisher Fury around Blyton Park through the traffic.
First visit to the circuit.
Video recorded on my new ContourGPS (with inbuild mic and rattling lens
cover so sound is of dubious quality!)
Overlay with DashWare
Ended with 3rd gear falling out of the engine :(

Trackday Tips for Beginners
Information that I hope will help riders new to trackdays. I also forgot to
mention that some trackday organizations allow you to get a taste of what a
trackday is like by letting you ride in your street gear with a control
rider during the lunch break. Take advantage of this if you are unsure if
you want to do a trackday.
Another note: check your brakes before you go. The track will use up brake
pads in a way that the street almost never does.
