Easy to Get Started.
The training is in conjunction with the RACE school at Shannonville Motorsport Park. For 2018 the school is on April 21, which requires pre-registration.
A portion of the school consists of in class time which discusses track safety, rules, flags, procedures and what to expect on the race weekends. The other portion is the track time. This starts on the skid pad, where cornering, transitions, and body positioning are taught. You will be learning in a safe environment with lots of feedback and coaching. After the skid pad session, you will go on the race track while following experienced racers, learning the lines & timing, and gradually increasing the pace.
Important, everyone must pre-register with the SRA by April 6th to ensure that there are bikes available for you to get the on-track time required for the license. We will help new passengers find sidecars for the school, new drivers will need to supply their own sidecar..
