BMW MC SEM and BMW MC GR sponsored another track day at Grattan Raceway yesterday, Monday May 23. Virtually perfect weather day for a track day - clear sky, lots of sun, warm (maybe even a little too warm by the afternoon!) and a dry, sticky track.
TCDers Dave DeCook, Rick Griffith, Chuck Lapierre, Dave Peck and yours truly showed up for a day of fun on the always interesting Grattan race course. Dave DeCook and Dave Peck were there for the first time, joining in with a very sizable novice group of first timers and limited track experience riders. Chuck, Rick and I have all done a number of track days previously. I managed to head trackside and grab some photos.
Track days are a great way to improve your skills and build your riding confidence in a safe, controlled environment. If you haven't done one before you ought to give it consideration. No need to be intimidated - if it's your first time on a track you'll be in the novices group, riding under the tutelage of an instructor who will help you learn the track and riding techniques. There will be another BMW track day on July 25th; details are available on the events calendar page.
