Trackday Mondello Park 25/7/10

Hi guys and girls, just thought i'd chime in on this, i did my first track day yesterday at Mondello Park International Circuit, have only ever done the National Circuit here before in a car and thats a completely different ball game!! I only did the morning session as it was my first track day and i knew i'd be very tired even just doin the mornin session!! All in all it was a fantastic day, the weather held out just about, the bike never missed a beat, the tyres were awesome and i think i now have developed a bit of an addiction! I've spent all my time since yesterday watching and re-watching the on-board footage trying to see where i can improve my lines and times. I wasn't too worried about times while i was out yesterday, more trying to be smooth and get the lines right. I didn't get my knee down at any stage, but im told it'll come with time and practice and to be honest even if i never got my knee down id still head for the track every opportunity i could!!

My best time going from the footage was 2.26, and one of my mates (albeit on a gsxr 1000 k5) was running 2.16's in the same group so i've got a bit of work to do, but hes been doin this for years!!

I figured i'd post up a few pics another buddy of mine took, i'm waiting on the professional ones to arrive, and ill post up the on-board footage now.

Waiting nervously for the first session!


Tiny little wheelie on the power onto the pit straight!!


As behind the bubble as i could get!


Only cornering pic i have at the moment, doesnt show much unfortunately!



And the video,
First session, very slow!!


Second session first 10mins, gettin quicker!!

Second session second 10mins fairly happy with myself!!

That'd be cool Paul, there's only one date left this season the 13th September, im booked in for then already and then they start back up again in Feb, i hope to have my new track bike by then to start the new season on. If you're planning it give me a shout if you need any help or if you want me to book it for you or anthing, and i'll book in too it'd be a bit of craic!

It's a great circuit it can get a little overcrowded in certain groups but that pretty much happens everywhere you go, very technical track, much better suited to 600's than 1000's. I'm goin back in September to focus on cornerspeed (if the rain stays away!!) as i think thats where i'm loosing a lot of my time, i've still got about half an inch of chicken strip so im not leaning as far as i can and therefore not carrying as much cornerspeed as i can so thats gonna be the focus the next day!
