    Bends are way too tight and it’s a pig to get to. Have you thought of going to Newport instead? Same two hour drive but a proper 250m track. I book it mid-week for aero testing sessions a couple of times a year.

    Just a thought for the future …..

    Most people prefer the buzz of the tight track, Newport is more expensive, have to be fitter to enjoy it and Calshot never had any problems getting to and shorter in distance from here and your not stung financially for crossing a bridge.

    You must know a better route than me then ;-) Newport runs at £106.00 per hour including £25.00 for one of their coaches, although technically we don’t need one now as I’m qualified to a sufficient level, so that would bring it down to £81.00 per hour. We use it mainly for aero testing sessions on TT bikes for which we need as near constant speed as possible which we couldn’t get on Calshot. Probably not allowed to use TT bikes on Calshot I guess because of the steeper banking.

    Apologies date should be the 2nd January 9-12

    In terms of cost certainy Calshot is less than £106 pe rhour although will have to check what the charges are this year terms of costs and can understand the testing on aero bikes would not be suitable at Calshot

    So who is up for the 2nd so far

    If you’d be so kind as to put my name down Chris, I’d be obliged. I’ll ask around for any others, do you have a rough ball park figure for coming? Club + non club?

    Also I’ve had a look on their website, but I couldn’t find bike hire prices – does anyone know offhand how much this is?

    Ta!

    George reckon with bike hre and shoes depending on no’s should not be more than £25 for the 3 hrs and on this occasion will let guests pay the same

    See you there cheers Chris

    Mint cheers Chris; I’ll let you know within the next couple of days about any others. I will probably drive and make a day of it down that neck of the woods, so the slot in the van should still be free?
