The national BikeSafe Show and Track Experience 2016 is coming to Rockingham Motor Speedway in Northamptonshire on Saturday July 16, and promises a great mix of entertainment, on-road skills session, and on-track instruction by the California Superbike School.

Riders will be welcomed to the circuit, with its wide range of facilities, by the BikeSafe team and start their experience with a road route assessed ride. Following a debrief they will then join the California Superbike School for some track time around Rockingham’s 1.48 mile track.

Places are limited and booking is essential. Limited places left for the observed ride and track experience. Book now through the BikeSafe website

The experience takes between 2 ½ – 3 hours, and include an hour long 2-to-1 assessment with police motorcyclist on the road, then a safety briefing and 15 minute circuit ride with California Superbike School, in groups of 16 or less.

The California Superbike School’s Richard ‘Badger’ Browne said: “As a team of committed and enthusiastic individuals our goal is to help riders understand how a motorcycle is affected by the rider and how best to overcome this. It is great we are able to offer these track experiences at Rockingham and riders of all abilities and machine types are welcome. The emphasis throughout the day is on rider development and the skills that are transferable to road riding.”

There will be a range of bike manufacturers at the event with demo bikes available to test ride from Triumph, Honda,  Ducati, Suzuki and many more. The Yamaha MT Darkside Tour’s Dave Coates will performing his stunt show throughout the day, and visitors will be amazed by the Moto Gymkhana.  

Add in displays from some of the UKs leading retailers, clothing and accessory manufacturers, themed activities plus loads of family friendly attractions for non riders – and just £1 entry on the gate – and it should be a great day out for the whole family.  

July 16th will be a fun day out for everyone but, the serious motivation for holding the day, is to help cut the number of people being killed or injured on the UK’s roads.

The event runs from 10am until 5pm, on Saturday July 16, with entry costing just £1 entry, and parking is free.
