    i,m at oulton on the 15th april. have done it before a couple of years ago but it was drizzly and damp, and did not time laps. this time i hope the weather is going to be better and i have started timing laps at trackdays to monitor my progress. so the question i ask to you regulars is what time should i be looking at for a half decent lap time. i run in the inters. i know matt looks for 1min 50,s but he runs in the fast boys..so is 2mins decent?

    Anything under two mins is going well, specially in inters with a varied pace mate...

    Sub 1.50 is going some I tell ya, I tried and failed last year (but I'm back next week ;) ) and tbh is hard in fast as also a varied pace and can hit traffic....

    I'd honestly say most fast group riders are prob doing mid 1.50's with very few going sub....

    Lap times are a great way to track progress but don't get hung up on em, specially on td's... It gets expensive and painfull ha ha :)

    i'm booked on that day :)

    but pretty much as jimbo says,plus a lot depends on the day,but anything around 2 mins is going well.

    and i witnessed jimbo's valiant attempt,only a couple of tenths off it so sure it will come next visit :)

    My best lap at Oulton was 2:00 few years ago on a box standard R6 5SL.
    I am booked for 15th as well in inters.
