Hello all. I need to do some more track days but our UK weather will be shyte for ages now. What are your thoughts on track days in sunny europe ?

I can only do them at the weekend so I would need to get there and back - leaving friday lunchtime - back by sunday night.

Is the south of France reachable in that time and are there any tracks there ? What about spain ? Are there companies who specialise in euro track days ?

Does anyone have info on taking a bike on a train to the south of france ? I can't be ar_sed riding the whole way and ruining my tyres in the process.

Any help appreciated.

Kevin

PS, The need for speed has hit me - roll on 165mph !

"Your bike is capable of 182mph, or you ride like a ---"(well I'm not typing this bits)

Kevin,

I looked into taking a bike to the south of france about a year ago. It's definitely possible, I've got the info at home. I'll dig it out tonight or tomorrow for you.

Kevin - top idea, keep us posted. Re this Sat, did you call 100pc?.

Re 142 - just a thought, clutch isn't slipping is it...
