I was hoping we could start a trackday/race picture thread like the superbike picture thread. I am curious to see what some of your bikes look like in race track trim or street trim on a track. I am hoping to get some track bodywork for my 999 and I figured a thread like this could be good inspiration and eye candy for anyone interested in trackdays. Maybe if this thread takes off we could sticky it?

Thanks,

Nick

Here's one from me then (that's from the 6h endurance race last August, we finished 2nd in the Twins class):





Here in the pits before the race:



After the race :rolleyes::



And another one (Northern Greece Cup, Race 5):



And last one from last summer's track day:



Well ? :think:

Awesome pics you guys, MultiDoc and Ben 710 what kind of body work is that? Thanks a lot guys great stuff!
That's a racing (no side stand, no lights, closed belly pan) body kit I got via eBay from France. It's actually for the '03-'04 bikes but it was almost half the price of the '05-'06 bodykit and it fitted with no problems at all (just had to make new holes to the screen because the newer style had the holes differently, very easy to do). And the only difference are the front air ducts, 2 for the newer vs 4 for the earlier model (I like the earlier style better too :))
As for the tail, I got it from Germany, it's identical to the DP part but almost half the price. All the parts are fiberglass.

Nikos, the rear shot is cool :cool:

My bodywork is Sebimoto I think. Sucks. I lost the left hand fairing during a race because it just broke where the bolts fit. But to be fair I have to say it was not new (as you can see ;)).

Here's a couple from the last track day. I picked up some used sharkskinz fairings (red/black) but haven't had time to fit the tail yet.

Thanks Ben, I like that shot too :D. It might not be visible, but I was actually struggling for grip at the time :rolleyes:, was testing my entry/exit line in those couple of corners and I was going on the "dirty" part of the track for a couple of laps :crazy:.

Go with Shark skins Body work. I have seen the rest but the best is SharkSkins.
A bit pricey but for a reason. They crash great, paint great and fit great!
If I'm not wrong you got BrakeTech's rotors in the front, right ? What calipers+pads are you running ? The rotors are Iron or SS ? How do you like the setup you have ? (I have recently installed the BrakeTech Iron rotors and used the XRAC pads in the endurance race. Will test the CP211's soon).

BTW great pics Christian :)

Yes, Braketech Axis full floating ductile iron rotors up front and Ferodo Brake pads.
I believe the front Calipers are the stock ones that came on the 03 999.

Been tracking the 999 so much that I have been spoiled with the braking.
I took the 02 998S Bayliss out and in comparison it just doesn't hold a candle to the 999's set up.

Thanks for the kind words on the pics. First season tracking for me and I've really been working on my BP. Trying to get more lean and not so much of my ass off the seat :)

This was with my 998R (street bike#132/700) she´s like new with only about 4000kilometers, with very few mods and i don´t want to take her out again for the track... I only ride it 2Trackdays... and then i changed back to the original carbon farings!

This fiber farings where inspired in one of the bikes from MOTOCORSE

Some pictures i have of a couple of Trackdays...











Some months ago i have found another 998R(#516/700), and now i´m building this one only for track... i didn´t tried it yet, i´m finishing the engine with high comp pistons from Pistal Racing... this one have more work in mods!

This fiber farings where inspired in one of the bikes from MONSTERMOB UK
