Get Your Track On!

Have you ever wanted to find out what a modern sport bike can do in a safe controlled environment? Have you wanted to get more instruction to improve your riding but wanted more than what the MSF BRC and ERC classes can provide? Do you just have a need for speed?

Well join me for my annual track school outing at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA. I will be attending the two day camp being offered by California Superbike School ( www.superbikeschool.com ). I am signed up for the May 14/15th two day camp. But I may also do the May 13th one day school too. The way it works is based on your experience, they will categorize you in Levels 1 to 4. You will get both on track coaching as well as off track debriefing sessions. The school is well run with an emphasis on safety.

The one day camp will allow the use of your sport bike after passing tech inspection. No sport bike or don't want to use your own? No problem. The school can rent you one of theirs. The bonus here is the school uses the BMW S1000RR. Now here's your chance to actually test ride this bike in an environment which it was designed for. Also if you have no gear, no problem. The school can also rent you all the necessary equipment (helmet, full leathers, gloves, and boots). All you really need to do is just bring yourself. The two day camp provides all of the above as part of the fee in addition to having access to the training bikes (braking bike, slide/lean bike, no BS bike, and the camera bike). Also the two day camp is kept to a small enrollment so that you get more one on one attention. The ratio is one on track coach for every two students.

Some of the pro riders trained by California Superbike School are Wayne Rainey, Scott Russell, Chris Vermuellen, Roger Lee Hayden, James Toseland, Jake Zemke, Doug Chandler, and the list goes on.

You can also experience a world class track of which many professional racing venues include as part of their racing schedule. From the long front straight where you can achieve speeds of 150+ MPH, to the challenge of turn 1, to the technical section of turns 4/5/6, and the heart dropping fall as you dive into the roller coaster.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. I've been doing the school for 7 years.

    Just got an email informing me VIR has repaved the track. So we'll be riding on fresh asphalt.

    I've already booked my hotel room. The closest hotel to the track without actually staying at the hotel at the track is the Sleep Inn. This is their address and phone number:

    Hi Rodwell,

    It's easier if you go to this link for the school:

    There you can see all the various fees and costs. Let me know if you have any questions after going through the website.

    Sounds like a great class. What is the cost or do you have a break down of the fees/cost (one day, two day, rent their bike, use your own). Let me know.
