Hi Guys,
I just got my action pics through from a track day organiser that was at our track day on the 25th. Cracking! They are 11 by 8 and good quality with quick service!! A rarity these days!
The company are called monsterjockey and their e-mail addy is [email protected] you can also contact the owner by putting Elliot in front of the above addy.
They do track days at the CROIX circuit in Nothern France. This is for those in the european sector you can call him on 07976 203044
Here are the pics of me and the 12 in action!
Spot the ex-motocrosser!! LOL

Slvr12,
Yes, it was my first track day on a road bike. Only ever raced on the dirt! Definately a different ball game!! LOLOL
I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was only 7 secs slower than the fastest bike which was a fully race prepped GSXR 1000 on slicks! So I was well pleased with that.
Goes to show what a 12 can do! (wonder what it would be like if it was fully race tuned and fitted with slicks etc?? Hmmmm!
I will definately do another one!! Probably in the states next year! I'll have to speak to Markcbxx to find out where the nearest circuit is to me.
Regards
Ted

Track days are damn fun, aren't they? I was only about 30 seconds off the track record set by Eric Bostrom at Road America. I think if I put some stickers on my bike I could catch him!!!

Was it a wide open course [big long stright's long sweeping stright's] or a tight one with tight corner's short stright's?

Nice pic's Ted, look's like fun.

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

WD,
The track had a bit of everything! The straight (read runway) was about 3/4 of a mile long and the approach (from another short runway) onto it was a sweeping right hander at 110 MPH+! The other end had a tight left leading into a long right handed hairpin.
There was also a tight proper hairpin, double apex bends, wide 180's and a couple of flip chicane type bends as well. All in all it had a bit for everyone! Bend speeds varied between 20 MPH to 120 MPH.
Everyone voted the track and the day a huge success! so much that they are planning 2 days next year, I beleive May and Sep.
Regards
Ted
