TRACK SCHOOLS

No mat­ter how good/fast/safe you think you are, there’s al­ways some­thing new to learn from the pros. We’re lucky enough to have plenty of track tu­ition op­tions in the UK, each of­fer­ing some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent. Here’s our pick of the bunch.

RON HASLAM RACE SCHOOL

GP le­gend and fa­ther of Leon, Ron Haslam can still pedal a bike around a cir­cuit. His school takes place at Don­ing­ton Park and utilises brand-new Honda Fire­blade SPs and CBR600RRs, de­pen­dant on which tier of in­struc­tion. ‘Pre­mier’ is the en­try-level, half-day ex­pe­ri­ence that usu­ally sees sev­eral pupils share an in­struc­tor, mix­ing class­room tu­to­ri­als and de­briefs with plenty of track time on CBR600RRs. ‘Elite’ ex­pe­ri­ence is one-to-one in­struc­tion that in­cludes lux­u­ries such as dat­a­log­ging and on­board anal­y­sis, all us­ing 2017 SPs.

The beauty of Ron’s school is its free-flow­ing cur­ricu­lum and tu­ition tai­lored to your rid­ing, rather than fol­low­ing a set for­mat. What­ever needs work­ing on, Ron, Leon or any other of the school’s ar­ray of rac­ing in­struc­tors will no doubt do so. And you can grab a lap as pil­lion to Ron – if you’re man enough.

Did you know: Your nip­pers can have a spin too. From as young as 12 years old, kids can learn the ba­sics on CBR125s, CBR300Rs and CBR500Rs for £199. Price: from £299 Web: www.haslam­raceschool.com

The Haslam School caters for all sizes of bikes, plus all ages and skill lev­els of rid­ers.

Ron may fly past you, too!
