I wonder and hope that NFI will do supported track days on the new Bathurst circuit once its completed because its supposed to be able to host formula 1 cars as well as supercars and bikes like it always has and  I'm sure that a good Ducati 1398R with aftermarket pipes and an upgraded chip will keep up then overtake one of those!!!
Ducati is number 1, all others are number 2 or lower

So it would seem, along with some other upgrades:
https://www.sydneymotorsportpark.com.au/sydney-shines-bright-new-lights-on-the-future-of-motorsport-in-nsw/


A summary from a friend here: http://www.motoringweekly.com.au/2019/03/06/new-plans-for-ardc-and-smsp/:


There will be a multi-million dollar investment package that will provide 150 LED lighting towers that will enable far more use of the facilities. The circuit can be split into a number of configurations and the lighting will ensure that the configurations can be used for longer each day. The lights will be formally turned on late in 2020.
The other announcement that was important for the Western Sydney region was the creation of a motorsports centre of excellence that will focus on technologies, procedures and other functions to further the growth and excitement of motor sports in Australia.
Have a read of the press release, this is the start of something big for Sydney!

We should have a crack at locking the Saturday ( May 11 ) in as a club event, and maybe get a few of us down there.

Anyone keen ? Half keen ? Mildly interested ?

I haven't been for a few years, but they are a great day out.  Even better when they are are all ( or even mostly ) Ducati.

And don't panic.  You don't have to be fast.  Hell, you don't have to be any good at all.  But if you ever wanted to know what your bike was capable of, in the realtive safety of a wide open space, with most of the traffic going the same direction, at roughly the same pace and size, then this is the place to do it.

You'll learn heaps too.

Let's spread the word and see how we go.

Re: Eastern Creek Ride Day added for November - 17/11/11
« Reply #11 on: 26 Oct 2011, 10:51 AM »
The following is from Eastern Creek NOT NFI. Whether any of the NFI people take up the extra day is a matter for them, this notice is from EC and I am just posting it in case anyone was looking for a date in November:

 

 

 

Last track day for 2011

 

 

The December track day has almost sold out, with only a few places in the Advanced Group available, so we have added an extra date to our calendar:

 

Thursday 17 November

 

This will be your last chance to attend an Eastern Creek Track Day in 2011 so book soon to avoid disappointment.

 

 

Bookings can be made at  Driving Solutions - Eastern Creek Driver Training - Track Days or contact James on 0404 888525 for more information.

Called Maria from NFI today, and she put me straight through to Warren Lee.

Warren mentioned that the plan is, that they will have the truck there, and also a team of Ducati technicians.  They'll basically assist with anything ( within reason ) from adjusting chains to helping setup suspension just for you and your bike.  Craig McMartin ( nine times ProTwins champ ) will also be on hand, simply to offer personalised riding improvement suggestions, should you be keen to sharpen up your skills.

The rules of engagement sound pretty straightforward ; 

. You need a Ducati
. You need to be at one of the NFI supported days ( dates below )
. When you sign on, find out where they're ( NFI ) located
. Then you simply head down there with your bike ( or by yourself ) and let them know what you'd like to cover

If their shed is full, and/or they're busy, they'll make a time for you to return ?


Sounds simple enough.  If anyone's going or does end up going, and uses their services, I'd be keen to understand your experience ?

Speak with you soon..

Yes, good thinking. Find out what's "on the slab" now, and anyway Maria should routinely be saying a bit more about that in her note. It didn't occur to me that things would have changed because they were like that, ie a reserved couple of garages and good access to helpful info, typically including one of the veterans keeping an eye on the more novice Ducati riders and giving some useful feedback. This was my 3yo experience, if they have changed that much there would be no point to letting people know if it has just become a day out for the "in" crowd. I was flippantly (and lazily) using wry humor, but I get that these things need facial expression to come across how intended!

I have just checked out all the places we could see an update for the Raymond Terrace track and not a squeak. I could make a call but there is no point, when it is "on" we will have plenty of notice and impatience serves no useful end. Mind you, reading Chris's story suggests getting the lead out to be a lot more prepared could only be a good thing, as once bitten the bug is undoubtedly going to take one round the countryside so what's the big deal re timing? (question for self!).

Aha, as a PS: I have just scrolled through all these NFI emails and see they started off saying things like the following:

7/09/05 "Have you been thinking about Eastern Creek Ride Days to further enjoy and explore the potential of you and your Ducati ?
Would you like some friendly complementary advice and support from Australia?s top Ducati Technicians and Rider to further enhance your Ride Day experience and enjoyment ?
NF Importers is pleased to announce that it will continue to provide support including technical advice, complimentary to Ducati Owners attending specific Eastern Creek Ride Days, ...
 
Warren Lee, General Manager, NF Importers continues .. ? Riding a motorcycle on the track is very different to riding on the road and a rider needs to make certain riding style and motorcycle set-up adjustments to fully enjoy the experience. Our company and our staff have a long and very successful racing history which we can provide to Ducati owners to further enhance their personal Ride Day experience and enjoyment. We expect the response from Ducati owners to the opportunity will be very good and therefore we are looking to extend our support and relationship with our customers and Eastern Creek Ride Days on a regular basis each month in the future. ?

 
5/12/05 Three Ducati Customer Support days have already been held, each have been highly successful and have received a very positive response."

Ducati Customer Support has been available on a monthly basis at Eastern Creek Raceway in New South Wales throughout 2005, this support has been met with great enthusiasm from Ducati owners attending Eastern Creek Ridedays and NF Importers is now delighted to announce the first Ducati Customer Support day with PHILLIP ISLAND RIDEDAYS.


23/06/06 N F Importers will be offering Ducati customer support at the following Eastern Creek Ride Days:

8/06/07 Unfortunately, Warren Fraser and Warren Lee will not be attending as they will be overseas.  However, the rest of the regular NFI/Ducati Team will be present to welcome and support you.

after which it pretty well moved to just advice about the dates. I trust this is a more useful answer, now you can ask Maria with clear expectations on top of your experiences........!!!!

That's all cool, and I'm not taking the pi$$, but that note's almost three years old...

I tried to look them up before I posted, and I can find nothing.  I actually paid for an 'NFI Ducati' ride, around a year after that note, and not only was it overcrowded, but there was no 'Ducati support'.  A red truck was in the parking lot, and people in red clothing wandered around the pit area ( close to the canteen / catered food area ), but that was about it.

I'll contact 'Maria' on Monday and find out what they have on.

Speak soon.

So, what do we get out of an NFI Ride Day, that we don't get out of any other ?
