Folembray - Northern France (Race pipes with baffles)

What you get... Open Pit for a limited number of bikes safe organised track day (fully marshalled, medic onsite) tyre and technical bike set up on-site (advise to reserve in advance) professional photographer Cones on apex and exit, Eurotrax guides to show more cautious riders the lines Dealer days include 4-course evening meal 2 nights accommodation bed and breakfast return ferry crossing travelling by bike Description of Circuit... The track surface is smooth and very grippy, wet or dry weather, it covers more than 2 kilometres with the longest straight of 920 metres. With flowing lines, rapid curves of approximately 120mph, and a hair-pin bend, makes it both easy to learn and yet still technical and varied enough for those looking for a challenge or repeat trips. The circuit is surrounded by thick woodland and is set in a picturesque village in northern France, just 90 minutes from Calais, 25 minuites from our preferred accommdation in St. Quentin, and 35 minutes from Chateau Thierry (if you are booking 2 consecutive track days). There are excellent facilities on-site; including bar for refreshments and food, all available throughout the day at a small charge. Sole use of the 120m glass tower offers great views of the whole track and surrounding scenery. When approaching the circuit from the main entrance, the setting never fails to impress, adding to the excitment and anticipation of the day ahead! "a peaceful early morning, empty track with the sun hovering just above the trees never fails to take your breath away." Fuel... Fuel is available in the villiage (closed for siesta at holidays) and also on the D1 heading towards Soissons.   The latter station is approx 2miles away and is very easy to find.  Eurotrax gudes usually take groups during lunch time.
