I was luckily enough to have another session at Donnington Park Track (England) this Wednesday, riding a Fireblade SP1 with a dedicated instructor.

I felt like I made some progress this time, still not quite getting my lap times below 2 minutes yet but certainly feeling more confident. I still managed to hit around 138mph top speed and averaged around 80mph, it's really hard to imagine how fast a pro would be going to get the 1:30 lap times they can achieve!

The instructor was telling me the critical thing for lap time on this track is getting the bike stood up and back on the power as soon as possible.

Anyhow, I'd certainly recommend Ron Haslan Race school to other UK folks.

And the Fireblade SP1 was fab, loads of grunt and the electronic nanny keeps you in one piece:)
