Ride Day Experience – License requirements

This will be done during the registration process on the morning of your Ride Day. On the racetrack you can ride under a suspended road license, or on L or P plates.

Q. I am riding on slicks, what happens if it rains?
A. Track regulations will instruct whether slick tyres can be used in damp conditions. Champion’s Ride Days has tyre changing facilities at the track, as well as a full range of treaded and slick tyres to choose from.

A. Gates open from 7am with sign on and scrutineering opening from 7.30am. You will be required to attend the compulsory safety briefing from 8.40am. 

Q. How do I know which group to book into?
A. You should choose your riding group according to your level of riding and/or track experience. Under no circumstances should you select a riding group simply because it is the only group available. A breakdown of each group can be found below –  

  • Starter Group (Red)
    • The Red Group is for riders that are new to ride days or new to a particular racetrack. The Red Group aims to offer confidence so that no-one feels intimidated or threatened, in such a new environment.
    • Red Group Rules: Only overtaking a rider on the outside in corners, will be permitted. No undertaking in corners or coming up the inside of a rider when they are committed to a turn. This assists new riders to focus on their riding and their lines, and not be concerned about those behind them. 
  • Intermediate Group (Green) 
    • The Green Group is for the road rider with some ride day experience who is now familiar with how ride days’ work and have some more pace on the track now. 
    • Green Group Rules: Only overtaking a rider on the outside in corners, will be permitted. No undertaking in corners or coming up the inside of a rider when they are committed to a turn. This assists new riders to focus on their riding and their lines, and not be concerned about those behind them 
  • Intermediate-Fast Group (Blue) 
    • The Blue Group is for the experienced rider with pace on a ride day, who would prefer no overtaking rules. Faster than the green group, it offers the opportunity to overtake on the inside of corners, with caution and respect. 
  • Fast Group (Yellow) 
    • The Yellow Group is for the very experienced rider with pace and consistency. It is the fastest group, offering speed and enjoyment whilst maintaining safety and respect. It is a ride day, not a race practice day. 

Q. If I find I am too fast or slow for the group I have booked into, can I change on the day?
A. Champion’s Ride Days would like everyone to have a great ride day experience. They offer flexibility within the groups, so riders can move between the groups throughout the day. Please note – it is important that Champion’s Ride Days grade the sessions to ensure the safety and fun for all riders. The pace and ability of everyone on track will be assessed throughout the day, and changes made to keep the speed and experience similar. 

Q. Can I film my riding laps?
A. If riding with a GoPro it must be attached to the bike with a secondary tether, so it does not leave your bike if the bracket breaks. Cameras cannot be fitted to riders or helmets. 

Q. Is there medical support at the track if required?
A. Champion’s Ride Days have professional and reliable medical support available at all tracks. With constant radio contact with the Flag Marshals, they are immediately responsive to any necessary incident.
