BIKE (UK) - - A RIDE WITH... THE MACKENZIES - sil­ver­stone.co.uk

Un­less you’re a racer it doesn’t get much bet­ter than rid­ing an R1M around the Sil­ver­stone Grand Prix cir­cuit. Yamaha’s Sil­ver­stone Mas­ter­class is spe­cial. ‘It’s one-on-one in­struc­tion and we gear it to what you want,’ says chief in­struc­tor Niall Macken­zie. ‘Rid­ers get dou­ble the usual track­day track time, so that’s 12 ses­sions of 25 min­utes each. We get club rac­ers com­ing along, but mostly it’s track­day guys want­ing to ride bet­ter. You get the full deal – we as­sess where you’re at and what you want to work on, us­ing video anal­y­sis etc. Tar­ran and Tay­lor in­struct, plus Troy Corser if I’m away, or one of our other se­nior in­struc­tors, like former racer Alan Bat­son.’ A Mas­ter­class on the full GP track costs £899, or £599 if you use your own bike. You can also hire an R1M with­out the in­struc­tion.
