The 2009 THINK! Motorcycle Academy will be unveiled at the Brands Hatch circuit on Monday 13th April.
The Academy is an interactive bike safety stand that will be present at every round of the twelve-race BSB series. It includes interactive sessions as well as a range of information encouraging bikers to ‘Save Racing for the Track’ and learn new road skills. A selection of top BSB riders will give live interviews on the stand.
In addition to biking safety information, those visiting the Academy can experience Honda's Rider Trainer, a realistic hazard awareness simulator. Race-goers will also be able to access interactive pods where they can learn more about motorcycle safety including the latest SHARP helmet ratings.
Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of MotorSport Vision, said: “Motorcyclists are of course more vulnerable on the road than car drivers and the THINK! Motorcycle Academy’s on-site presence at BSB plays a very important role in continuing to improve road safety, something BSB fans really appreciate. The number of visitors that engage with THINK! at races and then go on to take up further training is
testimony to this.”
THINK! is sponsoring the British Superbike Championship (BSB) for the sixth successive year.
