Thanks to Simon and James for organizing this event in unusual circumstances.

While not feeling well enough to complete the day on track, I did manage to take some photographs of the action. Pictures here. If you would like a full-size image, let me know.

Regards, Ian

Ian - good to see you again on Monday; sorry you were suffering slightly.

Can I add my thanks to the track day organisers for putting on another fabulous event, this time involving a complex mix of novice and more experienced groups. As far as I'm aware, I don't think there was a single incident or even a yellow flag.

Please see DM re photo request.

Best wishes,  Tim

As it was a novice day does that mean you do not need a trackday roll bar?

Afraid not, Nick; because the event was organised by the Club then, irrespective of participant status (and some novices turn out to be less novice-like than others!) the Club's requirements for ROPS apply in full.  So a 'trackday' rollover bar or approved cage was needed.

The continued popularity of our Novice Trackdays (two arranged and sold-out this year) suggest that the rollover bar requirement is not an impediment to many members wishing to get on-track with the Club.

There is a photo in the link above showing a green 420 with Ocus wheels with a non FIA bar fitted?

Hmmm...  So there is; not good.

There was a lot going on that day, but it shouldn't have slipped through.  I, for one, completely missed it.  I'll pick up with Simon.  Thanks for drawing our attention to it.

A couple of us did notice that on the day but thought maybe the rules had changed.
