Hi Dave.

  1. I have paid the R550.00 - refer POP sent via email
  2. I would like to start in the Medium Group and then hopefully move to the Fast group. If no option to move, I would then like to start in the Fast group
  3. Where/when do I sign the Indemnity form?

Just a note: the email communication from the website mentioned a date of 27th April 2017 not 27th May 2017.

Enjoy your day.

Hi Dave

Is a double D helmet fastener required which is often the case at tracks?

Only the BMW system helmet doesn't have one

Hi All

 

The double D helmet fastener is the correct race helmet strap, however as this is a training day it is not a requirement.

Booking are going fast at the moment.

Huge response to our track training day.

We are expecting over 80 bikes on Saturday afternoon.

We find that more progress is made with bigger groups of riders.

Thanks you for your support, see you Saturday!

Hi @Dave Higgs.

Was this sent out via the regular Donford mailed? Somehow I missed this one, after having attended the last.

Hi

We invited all club members and sent it out to the Donford data base.

Please may I get your email details so that I can update the system on our side!

Hi Dave.


Will send you a private message now on the side.

 

I double checked my email now and don't find anything. But I get all the other emails from you guys regularly and was also on the mailing list for the previous track day so it's just a bit odd.

Thanks Dave for organising the Track Day - it was great. The huge turnout might indicate the need for more regular Track Days.

Look forward to the next one.
