If you’d like to do a trackday but you don’t have a track bike, then why not hire one?
In fact, you might already have a track bike or a suitable road bike but you just can’t be bothered with the hassle of transporting it or sorting it out in time for a track day.
A track bike hire company will remove all of the hassles. You can rent a modern track day bike that’s been prepared to a racing standard and is ready for you to jump on and ride. The bikes will have track fairings, braided brake lines and sticky tyres
You don’t even need to add fuel; as part of the hire, the company will look after your fuel, ensure your tyre warmers are fitted and the bike’s good to go.
You can rent all manner of bikes, from ex-European Junior Cup Honda CBR500Rs to full-on superbikes. Although most organisers tend to rent out 600cc sportsbikes and 1000cc superbikes that have been mildly modified to ensure they’re set up for on-track action.
You’ll need to have a valid motorcycle licence (or in some cases, an ACU licence will suffice) and you’ll also need to leave a damage deposit and then you’re good to go.
