I usually figure a wet track provides about half the traction of when it is dry. The track has to be especially abrasive to hold well in the wet. Because of that, some corners may have amazing traction and others may have amazingly little. Your track may have a well known 'rain line' for some corners if not all the way around? Enjoy your wet track day. It will teach you a whole lot about being smooth which transfers nicely to a sliding bike in the dry. If you find yourself riding with any body tenseness, slow down or give it up for the day. Nothing is to be learned in the wet if one is tense. That's all I got. Others have done a great job posting to topic.

G'day Guys,

The track day went really well. I only did one session in the wet before it dried up and it was fine, I was surprised how fast I could go without any sort of loss of traction.

Thanks heaps for the advice.

Cheers

Stewart
