Lincolnshire Bike Nights is proud to have set up track days and events in for 2011 in association with our friends over at Cadwell Park and Colin Willoughby Motorcycles. Here you will find information on up and coming events and track days at Cadwell Park.
LINCOLNSHIRE BIKE NIGHT, CRUISER NIGHT AT CADWELL PARK, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 3RD
Following the success of the previous events, Cadwell Park and Club MSV will be hosting the 2011 Cruiser track evening in conjunction with Lincolnshire Bike Nights.
This years LBN Cruiser night at Cadwell Park will be on August 3rd 2011. The cruises start at 7pm and 7.40pm. The event is still only £10 per bike and you will need to bring your licence (don’t forget).
This event is a unique opportunity to take your bike for a cruise around one of the country’s most spectacular circuits. For only £10, you’ll receive a number of limited pace laps with one of our experienced bike instructors leading the way
It’s a great way to get on track at a great price and enjoy your bike regardless of your track experience and at the end of the track sessions the bar will be open, going on into the evening – what better way to relax after your track time
Anyone that would rather watch the track action and meet with friends is welcome to come along and enjoy the evening in the usual LBN style. There will be plenty of space to park your bike – giving the perfect setting for an LBN meet. You can watch the on track action or choose to sit in the Club House bar – it’s up to you.
COLIN WILLOUGHBY MOTORCYCLES TRACK DAY AT CADWELL PARK, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 3RD
Following the success of the previous events, Cadwell Park and Club MSV will be hosting The 2011 Lincolnshire Bike Night in association with Colin Willoughby Motorcycles
This event is designed exclusively for anyone with little or no track experience. You don’t need a sports bike to take part – all bikes are welcome and almost all are more than capable of being used.
Typically you will receive one 15 minute session followed by three 20 minute sessions of riding time.
Cadwell Park is a biker’s Mecca. The circuit is split up into two sections – the woodland part of the circuit and the club section. The Woodland section will give you a chance to practice you’re slower speed cornering whilst the Clubman part of the track has more run off area’s and is ideal for getting some speed up and practicing some faster cornering skills.
It’s a uniquely challenging and exciting circuit and definitely not one to be missed.
At all Novice Only days we have:
• Cones around the circuit to help you master the track effectively.
• Limited number of bikes on circuit.
• Experienced instructors on hand offering advice and one to one tuition.
• A mini-briefing during the evening on track riding techniques and body positioning
An additional classroom briefing on track riding techniques, body position on the bike and the circuit itself will mean that your trackday is not only great fun but informative as well.
We look forward to seeing you here!
A LITTLE ABOUT THE CADWELL PARK TRACK
Book a track day with Lincolnshire Bike Nights
Fondly nicknamed the ‘mini Nürburgring’, Cadwell Park is held closely in the heart of many motorsport fans. Located 10 miles north of Horncastle and five miles south of Louth, the Lincolnshire circuit is especially popular with bikers nationwide.
For the first time, Cadwell Park will be featuring two rounds of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship. The traditional August Bank Holiday weekend is preceded by the first meeting in May. This gives fans the chance to witness some of the world’s best riders tackling the infamous ‘Mountain’ section, where bikes frequently get airborne, twice in 2010.
Also new for 2010 is the first Modifed Live meeting to be held at the circuit on 1 August. Fans of Modified Cars in the North East will be able to experience the thrill of the Time Attack series around the Lincolnshire circuit for the first time.
As the circuit’s reputation continues to build, there are an increasing number of club car events taking place at the circuit. The 2.17 mile circuit will feature meetings from the Historic and Classic Sports Car Clubs, the British Automobile Racing Club, the MG Car Club and MSVR. The ever-popular Vintage Sports Car Festival will again return to the circuit in June, along with a vintage motorcycle event.
Set in the rolling Lincolnshire countryside, Cadwell Park was established in 1934. The length of the track, nicknamed the ‘mini Nurburgring’, almost doubled to 1.3 miles in 1953, when the ascendant 500cc motorcycle-engined Formula 3 class was invited to race in a traditional bike meeting. Reg Spreckley thus became the track’s first car race winner in his Cooper. Some 30,000 spectators were said to have watched the meeting.
The original track, with its fearsome and photogenic Mountain feature, grew to its current 2.25-mile layout in 1962 and hosted the British F3 series the following May. It has three configurations – the rarely used Woodlands circuit, the short Club circuit, and the splendid, daunting Full circuit.
These days, its car racing exploits are confined to club meetings but they are invariably crackers, the track’s swooping nature providing fantastic racing.
