I went to PI to catch up with fellow blogger Chillertek and his mates who were down from Sydney to do two consecutive track days. Unfortunately the Island’s notoriously fickle weather came to the fore and really made it difficult. Geoff at least got out for a couple of laps on a wet track with his road tyres, however, there was no way Steve was going to get out on the track on his R1 with (brand new) slicks fitted. It was still good to catch up with Steve, meet Geoff, Stuart and Rick and also to see how a track day works.
I was surprised at the number of people from NSW who’d come to this event. I really felt sorry for them that the weather had been so cruel. After beautiful, sunny weather on Sunday, a change came through overnight and Monday turned out to be wet and stormy. I spoke to the fella with the ZX10 pictured below as I was leaving the track and he’d just shelled out $660 to have a set of full wet race tyres fitted so that he could a least get some track time, rather than drive all the way back to Maitland (NSW) without having even been out. He’d only booked for the Monday session.
