Five tips to help you avoid crashing on a track day - 5

5: Riding tekkers

Most trackday crashes are avoidable – be aware of the obvious pitfalls. Running wide is a common problem, so pay attention to advice about lines given in the briefing. Ask an instructor if you're not sure where to be on track. Highsides out of slower bends is another one – consider using a higher gear to reduce the chance of losing traction on the way out. Finally, other riders passing close and fast can panic and distract if you're not used to it. Taping up your mirrors is one tactic – but some folk prefer to know what's coming up a little in advance rather than have the shock of some 215bhp club racing ZX-10R buzzing past them 50mph faster. Whatever you do though, your focus should always be on what's up ahead.
