Info

As one of the smaller Circuits in the UK, Llandow offers a unique opportunity for Novice riders to gain confidence in a safe environment.  With our Chief Marshal John, a keen biker who enjoys sharing his knowledge, you will be in safe hands.

  • First timers and less experienced riders are placed into separate groups of only 16 riders with either our Instructor or an experienced team leader.
  • All participants MUST bring a valid A or A2 motorcycle licence
    A2 licence holders can only participate in the Novice group and must also bring with them their bike restriction certificate.
  • Riders are led around the track by team leaders who are responsible for setting the pace and showing riders “The racing line “
  • Only 3 Groups – Usually 1 Novice, 1 Intermediate and 1 Advance Group in 15 min sessions throughout the day.  So plenty of track time for everyone. Please note, A2 Licence holders are only permitted to ride in the Novice group.
  • Separate groups allow for  intermediate riders and advance riders  to enjoy some technically challenging corners in a controlled environment.
  • On site paramedics, who are very experienced.  In the event of an accident, our strict safety procedure means that you have medical professionals to hand  – should the worst happen !

All participants are given a full safety briefing and our Chief Marshal is available for advice and guidance throughout the day.

A maximum of 17 bikes led by team leaders on the circuit at any one time, divided into groups according to ability.

The itinerary of our bike trackdays are:
8.30am Gates open

All bikes will be filtered on to the circuit from the start area and a chequered flag displayed from the control tower will signify the end of the 15-minute sessions.

A – 18. We know there are some excellent riders who are under 18, but, due to the terms of our insurance we cannot accept riders under 18 on our trackdays.
