Requirements

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 wet track 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.

If the track is or become flooded beacuse of very severe condition, then the FAST Riding School might reschedule the course at a later date and give the attending participants the possibility to reschedule at any later date.

For our FAST ADVANCED RIDING COURSES Phase 1, 2, and 3:

If you are using one of our motorcycles, it includes all the necessary riding gear for free. If you are riding your own bike, our top quality safety gear is still available to you for a small fee (see our price list).

You will be asked at morning registration to complete a riding gear form if you use our riding gear and sign track and school waivers.

You do not need any motorcycle street riding license to take our courses.

In order to obtain the best possible results out of your course(s) with us at FAST, you have to be at a certain level of riding ability at the beginning of your course. So these requirements will give you the necessary information for your course selection:


Phase/Step 1 requirements:

You have to be able to ride on the street at the speed limit suggested by the law. You have to feel confident that you can ride on the track with 9 to 11 other riders, faster or slower than you. You need to be able to correcly judge the other riders speed in order to pass them safely if you want to or feel comfortable if you get passed. We have limited passing zones, mainly on straight away.

You will be negotiating about 250 turns during the day.
