Q. What is a Kirkistown Track Day?
A. A Kirkistown Track Day is an opportunity for road riders to
experience the thrill of the racetrack under controlled conditions.
To help achieve this riders are split into a maximum of 3 groups
based on ability and experience, thus getting a minimum of 1 1/2
hours track time (dependant on stoppages).

A. The day commences at 11:00am with riders signing on, and being
instructed as to the safety and track etiquette requirements.
The first group is usually on the track by 12:30pm, the session
lasts for 12 minutes then followed by group 2 and so on. There
is a break for refreshments at approximately 3:00pm for 30 minutes;
at this stage it is recommended that riders refuel at a nearby
filling station (1 mile) although if necessary you can leave the
track between groups. The day comes to a close around 6:00pm.

the day. All you need bring is adequate safety protection - helmet,
gloves, boots and leathers (1 or 2 piece) are compulsory; back

to get you back out on the track and if not we will help to
get you and your bike home.
Q. What if the weather is bad?

the day is cancelled appropriate refunds will be given.
