    I've just got back from Jerez.

    Remember there are a lot of you there, so you can always borrow something. I always make sure i've got stuff specific to my bike. Basic tools and fluids etc. We tried to co-ordinate most things across the 15 of us so we only took 3 fuel jugs between us for example.

    Make sure you write your name on stuff too, at the end its always a bit of a mess trying to get everything together, easier to see who's tyre warmers are whos etc...

    Regarding markings, I have some red ribbon tied to my gear, helps me identify at a glance.

    With focused Events to Almeria.
    Iíve done Almeria with FE, the paperwork and planning is frankly quite intimidating! My best efforts were a shambles tbh, but all the little details fade away when you get there. FE couldnít have done more to make it easy. They have petrol for sale (you wonít care what it costs, but not unreasonable) theyíll give you a can/jug, so donít bother taking that, theyíll all be ready to go for you. Jesus the mechanic will be on hand to help out with spares, there will be plenty of other bewildered trackdayers only too happy to share tools and tips. Itís a great track, the accommodation is perfect, weather guaranteed. You will enjoy it and you will want to go back!
    Eyes on the prize and all that..

    although Almeria is prob the driest of the spanish tracks,it certainly isn't gauranteed to be dry,4 out of 5 days last year was wet (on a 5 day trip),and it's seriously cold in the mornings so be carefull of tyres,ripping them more than anything else
