Went along to silverstone on wednesday to the school
Just as I expected, it poured down with rain & thought they would have cancelled & re scheduled, but nope, they gave it the go ahead! I was a little nervous, like I said i wasnt that confident riding in the rain, but out on the track, theres alot more grip than i thought.
Had an instructor to myself, which was nice! & he was a top bloke, explained things well before we went out there. Did a steady lap to learn the track then booted it! We were passing all the blokes on the 500's easy! Did half a session, pulled into pits & instructor said I was doing really well, just explained body position a bit more & off out we went for 2nd half. Finished session & instructor said I was the best he'd ever taken on track
Despite it tipping down, & hands froze to death, I had a cracking time & Ron Haslam signed me a birthday card! The bike was superb aswell, i was actually a little disappointed getting on my 125 this morning just dying for it to go faster

Next year, ill definatley do the 600 for sure!
Heres my pics the school took, waiting on some more from my dad aswell

Thanks :)
Some people dont think it is, but I did. Since they provide everything, bike, all equipment if needed, and I couldnt really put a price on all the advice ron had given me.
You can go straight to 600 but they ask you what you ride on the road, since Im on 125 with CBT they recommended the 'on track', which is cbr125, cbr250 or cb500. And since im a plastic fantastic, i went for the 250

My instructor said next time i can go to the 600's cause i already did the 250, they keep track of you courses etc, which is nice

Donington, Mallory, Anglesy and Silverstone are the ones in aware of where you don't need a full bike license. Especially if you go through with No Limits, apparently focused are a bit iffy with it.

well I'm on a 13hp cbr (until september), which is significantly slower than an rs
I wouldn't like to be on any track with such a slow bike, would be nice to do one on a rs 125 though
