    That is correct, mine is just the std aim solo as I don’t really need all that info.

    Track day report.


    This was to be the final track day of the year for me, plan was so this one and concentrate on getting the bike ready for next season, because of the damage to the clock bracket and fairings I didn’t want to cause further damage.


    The usual start to the day, 4am alarm call, 5pm along to work then set off at 6pm. It was a slow drive, stopped a few times to check the straps (paranoid) and got there at roughly 7:40.....what struck me was how busy it was, I was expecting to be the first or a select few but there were loads there, it was a nightmare as the SMRC are racing at Knockhill tomorrow and they had already arrived and were set up in the paddock, so parking was very limited.


    Anyway, all the gear set up, warmers on then it’s just a matter of waiting. It was funny during the briefing, the guy was like “anyone done a day on the new track”.....Dougie says “aye of course at least 30 days this year”.....”well it’s was done 10 days ago”..... :shock: I wasn’t expecting that. They resurfaced the bottom of Duffus/Leslie’s along to McIntyres.....


    Tbh, it wasn’t that bad but they obviously wanted us to be made aware of this, I never noticed a difference in terms of grip but visually it was a bit disconcerting at first, but after a few laps it was a case of “just crack on”.


    Session 1 was just the usual, take it relatively easy for 2-4 laps then push on, everything was going well, I think my best time in session 1 was 59 something. Session 2 was much better, I started firing in 57’s but couldn’t get under my PB of 57.82! Session 3 was my best yet, quite a few 57’s and almost got into the 56’s, 57.02 was my best with a close 57.22 as my second best. I’ll attach the link for the video showing my 2 best laps.


    Session 4 was a bit slower with traffic, steady 58-59s laps, lots of fun though, thoroughly enjoyed it. I sat behind a fella for a good few laps purely for the fact that I was struggling to pass, plus I thought it would make for some decent footage, I told him about it so I’ve stuck that up on YouTube as well. Because I’m not overly quick I struggle to get by folk that are maybe a tad slower on the approach to corners, I don’t feel comfortable diving up he inside, with that being said this fella was getting unbelievable drive out of the hairpin, just everywhere else I was getting held up.


    Only pic i took......







    This is at home, I usually go straight to work and unload everything but today I went home first, couldn’t be arsed plus I got the missus to follow me to work to help me unload everything.







    Another cracking day, weather was fantastic albeit very cold in the morning, but the temps soon got up and made for a very good day. It’s been a fantastic season on track with the R1, I’m glad I purchased the bike and since August 3rd I’ve managed 4 track days, 3 on the R1 and one with the S1krr.....I’ll maybe do a few days next year on the Bimmer but from the word go I plan to be on track with the R1, have fun but also try and get better and faster and get to that overall goal of 55s laps, that’s the end goal. Quickly I’d like to get to the 56’s, so damn close, one slightly braking later in one of the turns is all it would have taken, on the gas slightly sooner.........I’LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT!
