Bennetts and California Superbike School training and track days

1 of 1

Bennetts has once again teamed up with the California Superbike School to offer advanced rider training and trackdays throughout 2018. And if you have an insurance policy with Bennetts you will even receive a discount on the training days.

According to Bennetts, a recent survey showed that 69% of their respondents had not completed any form of rider training but 70% would consider doing some to improve their skills on a bike. With this in mind, Bennetts have organised five training days in conjunction with the California Superbike School.


The training days will take place on:

  • April 16 at Bedford Autodrome
  • April 23 at Snetterton
  • May 4 at Brands Hatch
  • May 11 at Donington Park
  • May 25 at Oulton Park

The courses are designed to help overcome the common control errors that affect novice and experienced motorcyclists alike, and has proved particularly popular with riders who have recently passed their test or who have returned to biking after a break. Participants will take part in a technical seminar – which covers turn entry, coordinating throttle and lean, looking into turn and throttle through turn – before heading out with the CSS coaches to put what they have learned to the test.

There will be two courses available to book each day – one in the morning and one in the afternoon – with a maximum of 30 people on each course. Following a compulsory safety briefing and the technical seminar, the main group will be divided into three smaller groups of 10, each taking part in four sessions of approximately 15 laps. A break after the third session will allow riders to ask questions and receive valuable feedback from the coaches.

The Bennetts Advanced Training Days are open to anyone with a full motorcycle licence and will be available to book from Monday 29 January at a cost of £99 per person. Current Bennetts policy holders will be able to book at the discounted rate of just £75 per person via the Bennetts Rewards scheme. For more information, click here

In addition to the training days, the California Superbike School will also be running four trackdays exclusively for Bennetts customers with CSS coaches on hand to offer tips and advice. The trackdays will take place on:

  • March 18 at Donington Park
  • June 14 at Snetterton
  • August 22 at Cadwell Park
  • September 12 at Oulton Park

Participants must be a current Bennetts policy holder and hold a full motorcycle licence. The first track day will be available to book from Monday 19 February at a cost of £85 per person via the Bennetts Rewards scheme. The subsequent dates will be released six weeks before the event. And there will even be the option to hire one of the CSS Ducati machines for the day. For more information, click here
