Track Days @ Pembrey 29-30 August

Post by Nadge on Wed 18 Jun 2008, 23:15

If you've never ridden Pembrey, it's a "must do".

Located about 8 miles west of Llanelli in South Wales, Pembrey is quite a short circuit (1.456 miles), but very technical and a HUGE amount of fun if you get it right (even if you get it wrong, there's loads of grass run off).

The event is organised by Focused Events, on August 29th and 30th (Friday and Saturday). I normally get a hotel nearby for the night before and after (gives plenty of time for the bar room tales !)

Focused Events have not yet published a price for this event, but it's normally 79 per day. There are no noise restrictions for this event.

Me and a few friends are going, so hope to see some of you there

Focused Events are doing deals on hire bikes.
Could be worth a call Alsieboy.

Looks a good deal, but can't find the terms and conditions...excess etc.. on the hire bikes.

Hang on got it..

The indemnity regarding hire bikes is 495, which is taken at the beginning of the event. As long as the bike returns as it was hired out to the rider, we will refund the full 495. Any damage to the bike will mean that we will not refund the 495.

Drop the bike and that is suddenly a 795 trackday....

I think I will got back to plan A if I drop my own track bike, I can repair it when I want...

Eyeing up a cheap track tool now....

Just a quick question for anyone in the know or has been there before .... Do I have to tape up the lights and mirrors etc ? If so what constitutes taping them up ? I didn't have to do anything when I went to castle combe I just rode there did it and rode back.

You can ask to be moved-up throughout the day if you want mate, although ive been on a few novice sessions at Pembrey and some lads are ubber fast, normally this co-incides with a race meeting weekend.

Tea goes straight through me, I'm like an old man !! Was a good day weather wise and my group was quite lucky as we had no flags all day thankfully unlike the inters who seemed to be constantly. I'll put some pics up here when I remember how to do it. Some good pics there. I can see why you had to cut the peg off !!

lol, don't talk to me about shopping lists, mine is getting huge.... tyres are top of the list I'm on a sports touring rear tyre at the moment and it was slipping around quite a bit. I have a spare set of wheels so I reckon I can have the best of both worlds :-)
