DAY ITINERARY

We run RAIN OR SHINE:

There is always something to learn, on a wet or dry track. So a FAST course will not be cancelled due to weather conditions. However, the track sessions may be delayed if the rain is too strong.

Only after attending the morning sessions, if you are too uncomfortable to continue, you will be allowed to reschedule your course later the same year at no extra cost if a spot is available or in the next season, but no refund will be given.

    You ride seven 10 minute track sessions in Phase/step 1 & 2 and six 12 minute track sessions in Phase/step 3.

Each track riding session focuses on part of the techniques discussed earlier in class, those in ascending order to build up your skills.Each group alternates their turn on the track. You start by riding following an instructor to familiarize yourself with the track, the motorcycle and a few riding techniques. Then your instructor goes in turns and takes notes on your performance while you ride laps with the other riders of your group. Right after the riding sessions, he gives you a critique on your riding techniques. Passing is allowed in specially designated safe areas.
