POP UP TRACK DAY TENTS
Track days are one of the best ways to safely take your pride and joy as close to the limit as possible, on the very circuits that BSB and WSB legends have taken their bikes to the very limit. Whether you’re climbing the Mountain at Cadwell or going knee to the road at Snetterton round Agostini, following in the tyre tracks of the greats on a Track Day is a very satisfying experience.
While a few UK circuits offer the use of one of their garages (if you’re lucky enough) most paddock areas tend to double up as your pit and hospitality area and whilst you will want to spend as much time as possible out on track, the truth is you’ll be off track tinkering and socialising more than you will on your bike.
As the UK’s weather is unpredictable, some shelter is often needed to keep you, your vehicle and your tools dry or shaded from the sun while you are out on track, working on your vehicle or simply having lunch.
Gala Performance sells Pop-up Motorbike Awnings that can be deployed in a matter of minutes and offer unrivalled protection against the elements, so you’re buying a great low-cost commercial grade structure that can be put up in the time it takes for you to boil a kettle. They are available to buy in six frame strengths, twelve great colours and seven sizes, so no matter what your requirement, there’s a Gala Performance awning for you. If you’re in the market for something to cover your race team and want to enhance the image by adding team or sponsor logos and artwork, our in-house printers can do that for you often in a matter of days.
The gazebo framework is lightweight yet incredibly strong, and comes with up to a 5 year warranty so you can be sure you won’t be leaving it stuffed into a ‘Biffa’ bin at the end of your day and eyeballing yet another cheap gazebo before your next track day.
For Motorcycles, whilst you can buy a perfectly adequate and easy to manage 3m x 3m track day tent that will cover you and the bike, the most popular size to purchase from Gala Performance is our 3m x 4.5m, as it can easily house up to three bikes. Alternatively, if you are racing alone, you can utilise the additional space to store your tools, jerry cans, tyres etc.
Of course, not all track days are just for motorbike nuts, and there are countless events up and down the country for you to take your 4-wheeled beast out and get your foot to the floor. A 3m x 6m track day tent will easily cover most vehicles completely, although a very popular choice is to spread the cost between friends and purchase a single tent with a vehicle in each bay, with the nose out in the natural light. If there are a few of you, then consider joining one or more together to create an even larger structure, which becomes as large as a complete garage unit.
Although we have industry leading warranties against manufacturing problems, a great benefit to purchasing your track day awning from Gala Performance is that we supply individual spare parts for each of our tents, so that even if there is any accidental damage, you can simply replace a nut, bolt, or truss section without the outlay of buying a whole new tent.
