idk, I do at least 8 track days a season and
as long as someone doesn't hit me, I'm ok with any pass.

If I scrape or bounce off someone I'll defiantly stop in the pits
and apologize.

Just ride faster and less people will be passing you.

Meh, no harm no foul... Wipe the sand out of your vagina and pick up the pace or drop down to a slower group or if he's in the wrong group then complain and have him bumped up.

If I was already one of the fastest guys on the track as you claim to be and someone passed me with that much disparity in closing speed I would be begging him for pointers not chastising his close pass which didn't even so much as make contact with an arm or leg let alone rub paint.

If that was your first time on slicks, you're probably not as fast as you think you are.

Sounds like you're a trackday hero that got his ego busted and you came to the wrong place to look for support.

I read your reply posts before you deleted them and fair enough. I'm not doing trackdays in the UK so I do not know exactly how things are over there in that regard, but I am a seasoned rider in the USA having worked as a Lead Instructor doing 50+ events every season for years on end, Test Rider, Moto-Journalist I've pretty much done it all including putting on my own trackdays.

Yes of course they would say something to the rider that passed you. It would no doubt be a liability issue for them not to regardless and I have said this before... 20 years ago if you were at a trackday you were a licensed racer trying to get some additional practice or testing time. Now it has become a family recreational activity and any average joe with a couple hundred dollars and some leathers can go ride on the track every weekend. What's worse is we (the promoters) shove the safety speech down everyone's throat so much that everybody thinks that we have now removed the inherent danger of riding at excessive speeds on two wheels and now if an accident does happen then there absolutely has to be someone to blame for it because this activity is supposed to be "safe" out there.

I'm sorry you felt threatened by the faster rider in that video. It must be very traumatic for you and I hope that with years of therapy and counseling you will eventually be able to come to grips with it. I would also like to start a petition for Safe Spaces at all tracks in the UK now so you will have a place to go when something like this occurs. No rider should ever have to feel that another rider got too close to them out there on the race track. The senseless damage that did not occur to you or your bike is an absolute travesty of justice and you will be avenged, oh yes you will be avenged!
