LOL so the criteria for being an instructor is what ? Are we saying that time on a bike means you can be an instructor ? Who taught you the right and wrong way to ride round a track ? Are you assessed on your riding knowledge ?This isn't an argument I genuinely want to know what qualifies you to instruct if the course doesn't cover riding skills, surprised it doesn't as you could have different ideas between instructors !
Doing a trackday is like making love to a beautiful woman: you need to have a good close look at your ride, make sure she's not too unwieldy and then when she's warmed up, ride her hard and fast for a number of 20 minute sessions

3 things for you to think about...Firstly, stop writing as though you are a spokesman for all trackday instructors - you certainly don't speak for me.Secondly, be brave and stop hiding behind an alias and tell us who you are.And thirdly, why should I be able to claim compo if I knew the risks ?
A bus driver know`s he could have a crash don`t mean if a car rams him he says "well I knew it could happen". It depends on what you were doing when you crashed, Its mentioned in briefings that the instructors are not to be used as a target so if tdo`s know we can be used like that why do we not have some kind of insurance cover, I have to have it for all the people that work for me.I`ve never written like I am a spokesman for all instructors, when I 1st looked on here there were a few that were giving fe instructors a slating.I can`t understand why you as an inst for fe would not want to say something when we were so generalised,I`ll be quite happy to intrduce myself next time we meet, If by "be brave" you mean I`m a coward then we can discuss that too.

Well after my TD yesterday I can thoroughly understand why NL get good press. Superbly run day. Informative breifing which didnt drag on and on. Free bacon rolls whilst the breifing was on - nice customer service touch. Friendly staff and i didnt see one instructor call anyone a cock or even swear!. (sorry was beginning to tar them all with OV's brush).Overtaking was allowed with respect.10/10 IMHO for a UK trackday.
Why not tell us who you are then?.
who are you, does it matter, there`s plenty people on here want a pop at me. I like to know when its coming and I`m facing the right way
You do have a bit of a victim mentality, I certainly don't want a pop at you
but I`m getting plenty of pm`s to say otherwise.
ah that old chestnut..where have i heard that said before..you win Alias of the year award. Now go and eat some more pies.
I never said you did, I`ve got no victim mentality believe me, I must just come across as a cock but I`m getting plenty of pm`s to say otherwise.
Don`t know where you`ve heard that before. I like pies. So why did you really stop working for KH
I can only judge you as OV and by what you have posted here and in that capacity for me you have come across as a bit of a cock and you do seem to contradict yourself a bit and you do seem to re-enforce some of the views people had of FE and even tho you aren't a direct employee you are seen as one.As for you you really are or what you are really like I neither know nor care enough to find out.
Aha, a veiled threat Most other folk on this thread are easily identified. Why do you need to hide behind a name ? Something to hide ? Not brave enough to stand by what you write ?
I've been called Yorick for about 30 years - It's the only name that most folk know me as.If I use my real name, only 2 people on the whole of VD would know who I am
You tell us couch, you say you were instructer, what skills did you have and where did you aquire them. If you have done 200 trackdays like you say you have. then surely experience counts for alot. I would assume that you could teach someone that is on there 1st trackday having past there test for 6 months , a thing or two to help them, wonder if youll answer this time.
couch. was it not you that said cocks like mr O.V. seems to me you dont really know what your saying.
if you want contradiction, read your own posts.
people seem to like the threads hes on. look at the number of views theyve had.
