Imagine if we ran our own trackday, brimming with sunshine, track time, race support, goody bags and even a big old competition as well. Well, we did just that and it was utter brillaint, thanks to you guys that came and joined us. Here’s what it looked like…

We all love trackdays right? I mean what’s not to love, thrashing round one of the best circuits on the planet, under the glorious sunshine with your mates without the worry of some old granny pulling out on you, or a dodgy-placed drainpipe making a mess of your pride and joy… it’s basically what dreams are made off. So with this in mind, we put our heads together at Fast Bikes H Q and thought well, how can we take a trackday to the next level and give you lovely lot that little extra for coming along? And then it hit us… we needed to go and get involved ourselves. So, enlisting the help of Bridgestone, RST Motodirect and Arai, we hijacked an MSV Trackday at the infamous Cadwell P ark, where we gave you free goody bags just for showing up, a tonne of race support and a big old prize at the end for one lucky winner… and it’s fair to say it went down a treat.

From a rider who was on his first trackday in five years to C hrissy Rouse who’s battling for the National Superstock 1000 title and just about anything in between, we had it all at our very first trackday, and it ran smooth as clockwork. So ladies and gents, here is the lowdown on our first very trackday in your words and ours…


‘Dangerous’ Bruce

“ After months of planning, too many emails and a few last minute banner fixings around the circuit, Fast Bikes’ Cadwell Park trackday was upon us. And what a craic it was. Not just because the weather was warm enough to get a mild tan, but because you lot were there. It was great to speak to so many of the mag’s readers, who’d made the trek from all over the U K to take on the nation’s trickiest track. People of all paces, riding a broad slab of bikes, verging from box fresh to future classics. It was great to see, and even better to be a part of. We can’t wait to do it again, only bigger and better. Watch this space

About Fast Bikes

Gabrielle sang a song about dreams coming true, and do you know what, she wasn’t fibbing. After way too many hours, days and years of dreaming, I finally got that golden ticket to sample the delights of Italy’s finest race track: Mugello. And not on some battered C90 with spokes missing, I’ll have you know. Parked up in a pristine garage, packed with factory technicians and enough fresh rubber to keep a porn star happy, stood an audacious-looking winged wonder. Yep, this was my chance to try out Aprilia’ s112bhp Factory Works RSV4 on a circuit crafted by the gods. Let’s just say neither the bike nor the track disappointed, as you’ll know after you’ve read this issue’s report. The Aprilia’s the latest in a succession of new and exciting propositions that have made an appearance of late, squaring up to the likes of BMW’ sHP4 Race, Honda’s RC213V -S and Ducati’s 1299 Superleggera. And there will undoubtedly be more such steeds on the way, as rival brands flex their engineering muscles and throw everything they’ve got into topping the charts for the lightest, fastest and most innovative of motorcycles . But there’s also plenty of good news for financially humble mortals such as myself, as it looks like we’re going to be treated to some far more attainable metal in 2019.
