It was a wet day, but the surface we were doing it on wasn't slippy as such. I'm going to practice this weekend as I've managed to get the test rebooked for this Tuesday, will try keeping the bike in second gear at high rev and see what's achievable. Just think if I exit the bend and shift upto third, my acceleration won't get me upto speed....if I can't do it then using a different bike might be plan B!

Something I figured too is my bike is lower than most bikes, kinda puts it in the back of my mind that my foot pedal might scrape the ground if I lean over too far
