BMW MOTORRAD TRACK & TRAINING DAYS.
Attendees will get to meet and be instructed at either Donington Park or Silverstone by one of three star riders: WSBK champion Neil Hodgson, ex-GP rider Niall Mackenzie or TT and BSB rider Steve Plater. By the end of the day, riders will be more confident, feel more connected with the RR and be better able to make the most of their motorcycle in day-to-day riding.
With plenty of track time guaranteed, S 1000 RR owners, or those choosing to hire one for the day’s riding, will have the opportunity to improve their riding skills while learning how to make the most of the RR’s state-of-the-art Dynamic Traction Control and Race ABS in controlled environments. In addition, owners of other models of motorcycle will be given the opportunity to try out a 2013 BMW S 1000 RR Sport for a 20-minute taster session.
Each Track & Training Day experience will cover three main key areas: building confidence on track, body positioning, and using the RR’s cutting edge traction control and ABS systems. As well as learning from the experts during engaging one-on-one instruction, riders will have the opportunity to put this, and more, into practice during the three instructed sessions on the track and three sessions on a dedicated body-positioning loop.
BMW Park Lane Race Support will be on hand to offer expert technical advice, from tyre choice and pressure to suspension set up, modifications and the vast range of BMW HP parts available for the S 1000 RR.
Places cost £295 for owners riding their own supersport bike, or £495 for the hire of a 2013 S 1000 RR for the day. BMW Motorrad and Focused Events will provide breakfast, refreshments during the day and on-site BMW Race Support Service.
