Our day in pictures. Please tag as many people. If you have any of your own photos, we would be happy for you to post.
Lots of smiling people in the pits which was great to see.
Apologies if I have missed anybody, it was a very busy day.
Could all the Track Day Riders please comment on the photo so we can put a name to the bike/face, this would be great.

RRAT held our Coaching Day on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for a better day weather wise, although it had a few of us worried earlier in the week.
With 30 seniors and 8 juniors participating, Leo Cash and Gary McCoy were very well received by all.
Everyone got plenty of riding in, with the coaching day turning into a practice later in the afternoon.
The RRAT would like to thank everyone involved in making this event such a great one. As well as the coaching and officials on the day, there are many other behind the scenes jobs, picking up the loan bikes, organizing the paperwork, lunches, setting up and of course packing away, just to mention a few. A big THANK YOU.
Great appreciation as well to Futuresport and Suncity Yamaha for the loan of their bikes for the coaches to ride.
From feedback from riders at the end of the day, it seems the event was a great success.
Thank you to all the travellers, north, west and south as well as all our diehard locals. It was fantastic seeing the track guys out there - we hope you enjoyed yourself and will return - we always have track days at our closed to club/practice days, but we are hoping you will all come back as racers.
Lots of pictures to post of the day.
I think we should all give ourselves a pat on the back, riders, officials, parents, helpers, everybody. We all came together and made Saturday a big success for the RRAT.
GO THE RRAT!!
Best wishes, Christine. ... See MoreSee Less

Junior Road Race Feature.................
Race is open to all Junior Road Race machines that have entered in the TT. Run on Sunday afternoon over 6 laps.
Grid positions will be determined by a peg draw. But the big news here is that the start will be a Le Mans start, This is the first time in Australia that this has been done for junior road race. In this style of start the bikes line up on the left side of the track and the riders on the right hand side, when the green flag drops the riders run across the track to the bike which is in neutral, running and held by a parent or guardian. The rider jumps on puts it in gear and goes - We will make sue that you get a good briefing by the CoC before the race so everyone is clear on the start rules.
Also $200 prize money up for grabs, this goes straight into the hands of the successful riders in cash, but obviously can be given to your parents/guardians to pay back some of the money they have spent on you........ ... See MoreSee Less
