Some people forget this. There's no trophies at the end of the day, and lets be honest, we aren’t going for the track record are we.
99% of people treat it as a track day, but you’ll ALWAYS get someone diving up the inside of you just before the apex. When it happens, and it will, stay calm. Carry on looking in the direction you’re going and let them go.
Its advisable to not run mirrors on track. Take them off, or tuck them in. You only need to look forward and forget the rules of the road, Also, tape your speedo up, you don’t need to know what speed you’re doing . If you’re in front, you have the line. Overtaking should be done without surprising the ride in front, and with plenty of space.
During one of my afternoon sessions at Donington last time out I was hard on the anchors for Foggy’s and Captain track day came screaming past me on a top spec Aprilia. Two thoughts entered my head. 1. Either I ‘ve braked way too early, or 2. He ain’t stopping that! As I exited Foggy’s with a clear track in front of me I knew I’d braked bang on my marker!
Make friends in the paddock, don’t be the guy that's knocked someone off....
Remember, it's not a race!
