Race day in the wet - Advice required

G'day Everyone,

I have organized to go to a track day at a local race track on Saturday, even though it is summer here we are forecast for 20-40mm of rain.

I have raced this track in the dry and did quite well, while I have ridden swiftly on the road in the rain I have never really pushed the limits in the wet, I am looking for advice around tecniques and what to expect/look for.

I ride a DRZ400SM with Avon Distanzia SM. In the dry I pace the slower super sport bikes (catch them in the corners loose them on the straights).

My questions are as follows.

How will I know when I am close to the limit? / What should I do if I get the bike sliding?

Should I still be hanging off the bike with my knee down or should I be using a different body position?

What a common mistake made in the wet when pushing?

Anything else you think I should know?

Advice would be much appreciated.


Current Ride - Suzuki DRZ400SM
