Groups, Sessions and Riding Time

How many groups are there and how fast can I go?

There is no speed limit on the track. You may go as fast or as slow as you like. However choose a group to ride in that best suits your riding ability. We normally run 4 riding groups.

Group 1 is for expert/experienced riders who wish to ride at a fast pace.
Group 2 is for experienced/intermediate riders.
Group 3 is for intermediate riders.
Group 4 is for less experienced riders or first timers on the track who wish to ride at a slower pace.

How many riders will there be in a group?

Bookings are limited by group maximums. Group 2 & 3 are the most popular and for a fully booked trackday may have around 35 riders for the full track. Group 4 is normally the smallest with around 25 to 30 riders at a fully booked day.

Can I change groups during the day?

Yes but subject to space being available in the group. Check at the registration desk if you wish to change groups.

Can I bring more than one bike to ride on the track and does it cost more?

You can ride more than one bike and there is no extra rider fee if you ride in one group. If you wish to ride in more than one group an extra rider fee is applicable.

How long is a riding session for a group?

Sessions will last around 15 minutes . Each group will normally have 6 sessions in the day. If time remains at day end we may run a few extra shorter sessions with combined groups to complete the day. Riding begins at about 9.30am with group 4 out first. We have a 30 minute lunch break at around 1.00pm and the day ends at 4.30pm. You may ride in excess of 150 km on the track so you may want to start with a full tank.

What kind of help is available if I haven’t been on the track before?

If you are unsure of the track layout we have a maps of the tracks. A MotoTT rider will also lead each group around the track for the first lap of the first session at the beginning of the day. We can also provide help with bike tyre pressures recommended by tyre manufacturers for track riding. Please ask a MotoTT staff member as we have very experienced motorcycle mechanics and track riders helping on the day.

Track Riding Rules

When can I pass a slower rider in front of me?

You may pass a rider on the left or on the right except where the rider in front of you is entering and negotiating a corner whereby you may not overtake on the inside line. The most important rule to remember is that a rider in front of you has the right to hold his or her line at all times and particularly on corners. We have a strict 2 metre passing rule, the over taker must give the lead rider 2 metres of room throughout the entire passing manoeuvre. The onus is on the overtaker to pass safely at all times. The overtaker is identified as the trailing rider prior to the passing manoeuvre. 

All circuits now operate a full system of Circuit Safety lights, these replace flags, but flags may also be used.
What happens if a yellow flag or a yellow circuit light is deployed?

A bike may have stopped or be off the track. Slow down and be aware of the track conditions. No overtaking after the yellow flag/light or until you see a green flag or circuit light

What happens when a red flag/light (and in conjunction with an ambulance flag)?

A bike or rider may be lying on the track or the track may have debris or oil on it. Slow down, No overtaking and be aware of the track conditions, give way to the ambulance if on the track and leave the track immediately at the exit to pit lane.

Will a red flag end a session?

Not necessarily. The group will be restarted for the remaining time of their session if practicable. Riders should reform in the pit lane area whilst the track is cleared.

What happens if I am black flagged?

Exit to pit lane immediately. You may have a problem with your bike that you are not aware of or we may need to discuss with you the track rules. No wheelies or stoppies permitted on the track or in pit lane.

Can I take a pillion on the track?

No sorry no pillions are allowed

Bike Set-up, Insurance, Emergency Services, Photography, Food and Fuel

What tyre pressure should I have for track riding?

Lower tyre pressures than those recommended for road riding help to heat your tyres up quickly for track riding. Please feel free to ask for advice at bike check or any time during the day about tyre pressures and suspension set-up or any other questions you may have about track riding.

Am I covered by my bike insurance whilst riding on the track?

Check your policy or ask the question of your insurance provider.
Several insurance companies provide coverage for their customers attending MotoTT/ Playday trackdays.
