Ron Haslam Race School review

I can’t believe I’m riding in the footsteps of legends. Just last week, Rossi, Stoner and Lorenzo all rode here. As I turn out of Club Corner and head down the start-finish straight after my instructor, even the rain can’t dampen my spirits. We’re here at Silverstone, a place with a rich history of motorcycle racing and, best of all, my...

Chris Walkers Track school

Hi

Has anyone done the Chris Walker Race School at Mallory and Ron Haslams - how do they compare?

I would like to do one but dont know which is the best.

Hi, I've been to the Ron Haslam school 3 times (1 x 600, 2 x fireblade) and the Chris walker school once and would recommend both. Very similar in terms of time on track and the instruction is great at both especially for track newbies. The main difference is the characteristics of the tracks, mallory is a more typical british circuit being quite narrow and tighter which suits the 600's perfectly whereas silverstone is very wide everywhere! My advice would be to do one of them this year, and the other the next (or sooner if you can afford it :P )

Hey guys I know this is silly but... I have no biking experience apart from a mini Moto... I know how to work clutch and gears and I know this is a race school not a riding school but would you recommend this to me as I am 15 and can't wait another year to get on a bike... Plus I am a bit on the large side because of my frame not fat does this matter for whenever I do start riding???

I read your staff gear tests and read the Ron haslam race school on track test result by Angus Parker with interest, I did this course on a wet August morning and loved it!

Although had my bike licence for a very long time I had a confidence crisis a few years ago, and would never go out solo. Since the course I have clocked up over 500 miles solo on my ninja and I can honestly say I love riding again thanks Ron and the team especially virgil!! Looking at doing the premier course next !!

I find it great that you've managed to get inside Ron Haslam's school at 16. It must have been very emotional for you to step on the giants' tracks. If I wasn't too old, I would come to see what tricks I can learn, too.

I guess anyone who goes to Silverstone masters the art of the bike in less than a month. I've heard good things about the Race School and I've even saw Ron Haslam in a competition. Splendid.

I want to let my son attend these courses, but I'm a bit afraid to do it without knowing there's someone highly trained there in cases of accidents. The last place we've been at - I won't tell the name because I hate any kind of publicity - didn't have the doctor there when my boy fell off the bike. Luckily there was a biker who had a masters degree in healthcare and he provided the first aid. Needless to say I am still traumatized.

I've always dreamed to ride a Honda on a circuit. When I was little, one of my favourite dreams was to imagine that I'll be the future leader of the United States Grand Prix. The years have passed, but my love for racing is still here.

The best information came along with online era, I was looking for a way to drive for at least one day, but I didn't know where to look for. I don't think my wife will ever allow me to drive a bike now that she's pregnant, but I must do this just once, to feel the wind blowing in my face.

I'd truly like to learn how to ride a bike, maybe create a career path in this field. Speed, that's all I need to succeed in life. I hope someday I'll have enough money to pay for my own courses, regardless of what my family could say.
