Ron Haslam Race School

#1 Post by mikestrivens » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:19 am

Just booked a Premier Plus course at Ron Haslan race school to hone my skills and remove any bad motorcycling habits I may have picked up over the years.

Tbh and in my opinion its just a taster to track riding.
Its expensive aswell.

The only advantage is that you can drive there in a car with nothing and use there bikes and kit.

You could book a JW training day and hire a bike with loads more track time.
Or just hire a bike £240 (all fuel/tyre warmers and a pit man) and book a trackday and fill your boots.

The price to hire a newish honda/suzuki with smallboy hire was £240 last year.
Thats all in, tyres/fuel/tea and coffee a bloke to put the bike in the stands and fit warmers/rain tyres and he changes the wheels.

If you crash and snap a lever you pay for the lever, write the bike off into millions of tiny bits and it cost you a max of £500.

But the chances of crashing your own bike is slim.

Ive been doing it since mid 2014 now and only crashed 7ish times and 5 of them was this year :shock:

Safer then niping to the shops :thumb:
