Not a slagging off as such but more like constructive critisism. I've been on open pit lane events before and they have been great, but today (Feb 21st) at Cadwell seemed to be well overbooked.
I heard that there were 110 people attending and I believe that you are allowed 60 on track at any one time on a track day. I'll happily stand corrected to either of those 'facts'.
But if they are true then I would say that 110 is far too many to put into an open pit lane event which led to very long wait times to get onto track. If you wanted to come off track and make a tweak it could be 20 minutes before you got back on track.
Maybe some people are getting wise to the way an open pit lane event works and are trying for some endurance records as there did appear to be some bikes on track for a very long time and this is obviously nothing to to with the organisation.
Red flags helped a lot to get those waiting back out on track, but surely this isn't the best way.
I'd just be interested in other opionions, but to be honest I doubt if I will attend an open pit lane track day again.
I did the Cadwell day today. I think F.E have a funny way of running things some times. Not to say I didnt enjoy myself, because for my first time at Cadwell it was brilliant.
I do agree though, it was very busy. I never got a clear lap in.

Yesterday was awesome, great sunshne all day. No spills from myself or TheD4ppa(jody) so we had a cracking time. Although Jody did try a bit of grasstracking but everything was ok.
