Re: Anybody doing European track days?
I've done Nogaro , I think 4 times now, I forget.
At the end of the back straight you have a fairly sharp right. Bugger - all run off , then tyre wall, then a wall. Saw someone come off there, flipped over the tyre wall, then the wall. He was okish. The little squirt as you come in to the lovely right on to the start finish, there is modest run-off, then just a big concrete wall. Saw 2 people take each other out there. One stayed on the bike & got his leg smashed against the wall. It was broken in several places. As I said the circuit staff are good & the hospital excellent.
Facilities, well I've obviously used to too many 4/5 star hotels in my old age! (They may have changed in the last 18 months). The toilets are gross! There is obviously a shortage of disinfectant and bog brushes. When it gets warm, the flies are attracted too. That aint good when you have to strip off just for a pee!
I've eaten well in town too to escape the food poisoning at the circuit hotel, even though I paid half board as part of my package.
