AFAIK, there is an event being organized on the 5th and 6th by Apex Racing (or something like that). Track should be free on the 7th, but I feel that someone who has a contact at the track confirm this.

PS. Normally, bike sessions are in the morning and end by 12:30 PM. Unless Apex has booked the entire day on the 7th, we should be fine.

I think I've seen this same thing being discussed elsewhere in this thread or in another thread.

Bike session is in the morning.
Cars from 1pm - 5pm.

But yes, confirmation is always good.

LOL - The More confirmed it is, the better

Generally IMO, bike sessions are always in the mornings and the cars in the evenings.

My Clutch is 80% gone. I am experiencing Judders in first / second gears very often now. The Acceleration seems to have taken a hit. And it is really an effort to move it in city traffic.

Is it advisable to take on the Tracks with this clutch?. Or Should i go ahead and replace to OEM clutch?

I am also pondering over a Stage 1 or 2 Clutch from SPEC / Excedy. Not sure if this is the right time to do it

@Cameramen: Just carry a plain simple camera that can match the speed of the cars on TRACK- I guess one just needs a fast shutter speed as also a 200 or higher film..

Of all people you should know bigger is better, err... sometimes at least.
Huge lens are "standard" offering

Deal with it.

And its "intended" use is for "bird watching" nothing else.

Who said so?
Its beyond 300bhp that FWDs make no sense.
Seat, Chevrolet(Cruze), etc still compete in the WTCC with FWDs against RWDs from BMW.
Here's an interesting video on the topic:
