Good to have a backup!  We should ask Roger to take a jerry can of fuel down as well. 

Hey - anyone doing the track day this Sunday (8 Jun)?  I'm heading down to EC - here's hoping the rain doesn't set in!

That's what I've done on the last two track days.  A fairly early start...  and it's a long day.  However, it's do-able.   Having said that, there's quite a bit of time between now and the 17th of Aug!  Who knows what might turn up.

I'm doing a track day on the 848 next Sunday at EC, by the way.  If anyone's interested, shoot a reply here or PM me and I'll get back to you re details.

I've had a look for trailers for hire. Other than box trailers (which really wouldnt suit) there's nothing I can find.  Unless someone happens to own a trailer or a van I think I'll be riding down and back.

How many bikes can fit into a trailer?  I'm going, and I know Scott's going as well (Multistrada).  The fuel's a good idea too.  I've done it twice now - filled up at the servo nearby just before the start of the day, and the fuel light's on at the end of the 4th session!  It gets thirsty when you give it a good paddlin'!

I'm in too ( hopefully ).

Sent the cheque down today.  I also think that the trailer's a good idea, or at least some sort of support vehicle that can carry fuel, bring home the bits and pieces etc.

We should develop that idea...

Chris,

Thansk for this info, I was considering going before now but thought it was booked out - I will be going now I know there are places available.  If anyone has a spare space on a trailer I would be grateful for a lift - I can supply the car if required. 

I will hopefully be able to keep my laptimes over 2mins to avoid being upgraded!

Ducati being mispelled is surely a Honda backed conspiracy....

Howdy all

Some info about this ride day.  I talked with Melissa Jones at the D.o.c. NSW today.  Melissa told me that if we get a cheque to her for $170 each by the 31st of May (end of this week), we'll be guaranteed a spot.

The cheque must be made out to the Ducati Owners Club of NSW, for $170.00, and needs to include your name, and "Eastern Creek Track Day 17 Aug 2008" written on the back of the cheque.

Mail the cheque to

Ducati Owners Club of NSW
PO Box 124
Haberfield 2045

They've got enough riders to book out one grade entirely, and are on their way towards booking another grade.  Don't worry too much about the grading - if you're way too fast for the grade you've been booked into, they may be able to upgrade you!   ;D

So get in fast - it will be a hoot to have so many Ducatis out there on the one day!!!

Chris
PS - Why does the spell checker on this forum stumble over "Ducati"??   :-\

Hi.  I'd be interested in going down for the day.  I'm not sure, though - doesn't the below post say that it's full?   I guess we could book into one of the other groups - white (slow), or green (med-fast). 

I've done a couple in white - there's a bit of traffic to contend with, but once you get around them, it can still be great fun!

" UPDATE ON THE DUCATI OWNERS CLUB TRACK DAY ON 17TH AUGUST 2008 "
 
Well guys it's full we have filled the entire yellow group for the Eastern creek ride day on 17/8/08 , which basically means that every bike on the track in the yellow group on that day will be a " DUCATI". We were overwelmed by emails requesting a spot, well done every body !!!
 
I am also happy to report that "DUCATI PENRITH" DON AND DALE and the guys will be there with us on the day to provide some technical support with chain adjustments and suspension adjustments  and some minor repairs if needed.
 
The gents from Ducati Penrith also do some racing and will help with some tips as well also our own Mark Whittfield from " Racing for MS " will be there on the Day and he hopes to bring along some of the B.E.A.R.S racers for tips also.
 
We will also have a film crew from the TVS TV show the ITALIAN GUIDE will be doing a story on the day of us at the track and maybe some of us will get our heads on the TV.
 
The Ducati Owners  Club will provide a Bar B Que for lunch on the day and some soft drinks and bottled water for riders and families and will have the club tent there.
 
Now for some important issues for the day:
 
1. On the day we will have many different levels of riders ranging from slow to very fast and all in between and D.O.C asks if you are one of the faster riders that you respect the slower riders and pass them safely without intimidating them in the process.
 
2. Any faster rider that may  have an issue with slow riders and think this maybe frustrating for them I can organise them to move up to the faster green or red group for the same cost but must realise that there will be other motorcycles besides Ducati's amongst them please email A.S.A.P if you wish to do this.
 
3. All motorcycles will have to be scrutineered on the day by eastern creek ride days staff but basically if your bike is on a roadworthy condition you should be right , tyres will be checked for wear so if your tyres are worn best replace them before the day for your own safety and the safety of other riders around you.
Oil leaks are an issue , your bike should not be leaking oil anywhere cause it will be knocked back.
 
4. All Riding gear must be Leather and a minium requirement is that 2 piece leathers must zip together at the waist and all leather should be in good condition. Leather gloves and motorcycle riding boots must be used ( no blunstone type work boots are acceptable ) Helments must also be in good condition all these conditions are for your own safety so please adhere to them.
 
5. D.O.C of Nsw  has organised this day for members however the rules and regulations are applied by the owners of Eastern creek  and  Eastern creek ride days management and if there is any issue with safety from them or the track marshalls  there decision is final , D.O.C . of NSW has no power to overturn such a decision.
 
6. Please be aware that this venue is a race track and you and other riders will be riding at high speed and the D.O.C of NSW does not accept any responsibility for injury to yourself or damage to your bike or gear.
 
7.Finally an important note that you motorcycle insurance will not apply if you are riding on a race track so please if you have a issue with this please contact me A.S.A.P.
No insurance company in Australia will provide you with this sort of insurance so please read though your policy before you do the track day so you know where you stand.
 
We are hoping on the day to have fun as a club and friends and hope that no body comes off at all and every one has fun a enjoys the experience.
 
please make cheques payable to Ducati owners club of NSW
                                              PO Box 124
                                              Haberfield NSW 2045
 
Please place a note with your cheque with your name and the phase track day 17/8

Vice President D.O.C of NSW

A couple of the guys on last Sunday's club ride were planning to get down to the 26th April one, by the way. This was Ed and I think the other was Chris (spotcom) - but it wasn't me so I didn't pay much attention! Ed was talking about hiring a 3 bike trailer, not sure if there was a third taker in the slot.

This just came in today too, it would be worth considering given it will be a Ducati fest, and we will miscellaneously know many of the participants:

D.O.C of NSW TRACK DAY !!!
