The one thing you really need is to stop off and buy some of my honey. No trip to Oulton Park is complete without a jar of local sunshine in a jar.

I'd drop your tyre pressures considerably from 36/42, last one I ran 32/30, main thing is take your time and get to learn the track, don't feel you need to prove anything, if you're in the novice group and you do feel like you're getting held up, ask to move up to the inters, most importantly stay safe :thumb: .
