I will be there with my 1-S to give all the slow people someone to lap, I'm sharing the ride with a lad on his first track day who has only ridden a ZZR1100 since he past his test - he might be in for a shock! - might need to rev it a bit more than he's used too!

Anyone else doing the lunchtime parade laps on Sat and Sun ? A chance for those who don't fancy the full trackday to ride round Cadwell and show off your bike. Spaces available and it's free !

Your bike must be capable of a minimum 40mph and you have to wear the proper kit. Hoping to see stuff like Fizzy's out on track and other stuff that would be unsuited to the proper track sessions. Like an RB50 Gag bike for example... :mrgreen:

Hi Mark,

Sorry for the late reply. Here's a few rules and timetable for the paraders, and I checked with Cadwell today, and yes anyone who goes on track needs to be noise tested.

1. All bikes are welcome (including mopeds capable of 40+ mph) upto a maximum of 60 bikes
2. The parade will start at 12:30pm and include 2 laps of the circuit at 40-50mph behind an instructor
3. Riders will need to wear full leathers, gloves and helmets
4. No pillions are allowed!
5. Riders will need to sign in on the day, so the timetable will be;

11:00 - Parade Registration (riders will receive a wristband to show they've signed an indemnity)
11:30 - Parade Briefing (to explain the basics; follow the instructor, no overtaking, maintain the speed, ie: no dropping back and then a blat up to the bikes in front!)
12:15 - Assemble in the usual assembly area
12:30 - Instructor to lead parade for 2 laps and then return to the paddock

Cadwell on Saturday was a top day - bike ran perfect, didn't rain - my first dry track day in 3 years - grid packed with decent classic bikes ranging from the well ridden to mobile chicanes , weather perfect - great atmosphere. If they run it again next year I strongly recommend it.

Handful of KR1-S a KR250, plenty of TDMs, RGVs, RG500s, TZRs and Aprillia RS250s

No mechanical issues - managed to completely destroy a pair of tyres the track was so warm. Every lap there were big bikes to overtake by not braking for Coppice and carrying the speed all the way round Charlies - places lost on Park Straight made up on the brakes into Park - the guy on the Z1000 won't be waiting for me to brake first again....its a gravity thing!

Didn't take many pictures but hoping I can steal everyone else's video from youtube.
