Track Days when the BRT (Big Red Truck) is there are quite appealing,
see this topic if you want to be kept informed of scheduled
track days. Don't think,
by the way, that if you're not a fast rider this is not for you. When
a few HDOG members tried this out for the first time we were amazed
at how many people were circulating below the pace of a normal club
ride, and a sedate one at that! We assumed many of them didn't get out
much and this was their only real release. So you won't have any
problem "fitting in" no matter where you ride in the scheme of things.
The scary bit just from being on a race track doesn't last long when
you see how well you are going, and people really do give you good
support on the day, so please think seriously about it.
BEARS racing (British European American Racing Series) is becoming
quite popular, see BEARS website for details
