Our Novice Only Track Days allow anyone to experience the thrill of riding on a race track without the pressure of being surrounded by more experienced circuit riders.

If you have never taken part in a track day before, or you have only taken part in a few events, then a Novice Only day is a great place to start.

The novice stipulation is in reference to the rider, not the machine. Novice riders are welcome to come on their road bikes; however some have already acquired track bikes at this point. Others borrow a friends racing bike, just to dip their toe in the water. In every case - they all are novice riders.

The day will include:

• Cones around the circuit to help you master the track effectively.
• Limited number of bikes on circuit.
• Experienced rider coaches on hand throughout the event, offering advice and on-track training.


Please note: our Novice Only Trackdays are for riders who have little or no experience. Race licence holders are not permitted and will be refused entry without refund or credit.

As with all our bike track days riders must have a fully unrestricted bike licence, be wearing either one piece leathers or two piece that zip 'all' the way round. Proper bike boots and leather gloves.

If none of the dates on our Novice Only calendar suit you then you might want to consider one of attending one of our Sessioned Track Days in the novice group. These are listed in the calendar below under Novice Sessions.
