Video: Oulton Park Think! Academy Blog winner
Published: 15 May 2008
THINK! Road Safety has been an official sponsor of the 2008 Bennetts British Superbike Championship since 2004 and this year we will be offering MCN readers the chance to win VIP hospitality at every BSB round to enjoy the atmosphere in style!
Winners of each THINK! race promotion will be given the task of becoming an MCN video blog reporter for the day, with behind-the-scenes access, they will be given the chance to film the bits that fans don’t usually get to see, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity..
Check out the video below to see the blog from the winner of the Oulton Park round.
This year’s THINK! campaign is set to be bigger than ever, with the THINK! Motorcycle Academy attending each BSB round.
Every rider could benefit from some extra training or at the very least an assessment to check on road skills. The THINK! Motorcycle Academy gives fans the chance to speak with Bikesafe road safety officers who offer biking tips such as ride planning:
• Ride Alert – Position yourself where drivers will see you clearly
• Overtaking – Take a ‘lifesaver’ glance behind you to check what others are doing on the road
• Group Riding – Crashes often occur when riders try and keep up with a lead rider. If you're ahead try and keep the rider behind in your mirrors so you don't have to keep stopping to regroup
With regular BSB interviews, competitions, giveaways, expert advice, a riding simulator, interactive computers and live footage on the big screens, the Academy is a fun and entertaining way to learn more about staying safe. Save racing for the track!
