BIKE TRACKDAYS

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.
  • 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.
