  • ARD 26th of April

    My wife and I are booked in to do the RAC ARD track day on the 26th of April. I was just wondering if anybody else is doing this. There are still about 6 vacancies for the ARD but the TS is booked out.

    EDIT : Now added to the Calendar

        Will be there at the ARD. It will be the second time for me, this time I will be bringing little brother along (just got his license) as its is essential part of riding a bike IMO. Plus its a good step towards draging him to trackdayz

                              Always best to overdress rather than under dress IMO. Plus I will be in full race leathers and it was the SOP for last time I went. Will be dragging PSB'ers Minsa and Davos along also, hope the weather doesn't ruin the day :S
