First time on the track 2018

First time back on the track at Circuit Zolder!


The weather forecast was 10 degrees and cloudy, not ideal but doable for the time of the year.


But after the first session the sun appeared and it became a very nice day. It was very good to be back on the bike again and started immediately with confidence and putting down 1:56 lap times. Not the fastest ones but it was still cold (track) and it felt like a good rhythm.


@Peter was not that confident yet with his bike but we had some fun playing and making good video footage. Check our the videos in this post to. I did no workout during the winter time and my muscles started to struggle a lot in the 3rd session. During the rest of the day I could not go to the max due to not beeing fully fit. Have to go back to the gym!!!


But rode all 6 sessions of 20 minutes and the fastest laptime I did was a 1:54 and felt comfortable with this start. The bike worked perfectly and was pretty fast, notices with other younger 1000cc bikes that it still has the drive. The sprocket changes helped of course to get the power down to the tarmac :P


Now up to plan our new track day and go to the gym to put down some better times and compete with the field.
