Riding enthusiasts could be taking to the Silverstone tarmac at the same time as their World Superbike heroes later this month, with Focused Events offering special “pay as you go” track rides, pillion sessions and professional tuition.
Whilst the likes of Biaggi, Haslam, Toseland and Haga are taking to the Grand Prix track on the weekend of July 31 – Aug 1, Focused Events is offering enthusiasts to try out track racing for themselves on Silverstone’s Stowe test circuit from as little as £25 per session, with pillion thrill rides and training from former GP winner Simon Crafar also available from £30.
On the Saturday, riders will be able to undertake a special Rider Development Day using the latest Supersport machines with a choice of the Ducati 848, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, Suzuki GSX-R600 or Yamaha YZF-R6.
Both qualifying and race day events will be organised around the main on-track action so the Superbike legs and Superpole can be viewed in full in the comfort of the Stowe hospitality complex, with refreshments and analysis from top riders on offer throughout the day. The track day on Sunday will also feature a full BBQ for all visitors.
Saturday: Rider Development Day – £399 (including race weekend passes and bike hire) or £119 without bike hire.
Sunday- Trackday package – £179 (Hospitality package)
Pay as you go- ‘Session by session’ bookings within a normal track day format – £25 Saturday, £35 Sunday
Instruction- session ‘one on one’ with Simon Crafar – £30
Pillion rides- with Simon Crafar – £30.
