Introducing Riders to the Track
are developing a unique Tuition Day format to help novice riders
get onto the track. Emphasis is on safety and sharing the fun of
track riding, not speed or competition. Our goals are to focus on
riding fundamentals, reduce accidents and give people the confidence
to ride their sports bikes as they were designed for.
Tuition Days are held at Pasir
Gudang, just across the Malaysian border, East of Johor Bahru,
about 45 minutes from Singapore.
This page features photos from the 23rd February.
Thanks to all who gave up their Saturdays for the inaugural Tuition
When's the next
Class Room Sessions
take riders through safe track riding techniques, the rules of passing,
pit lane etiquette and outline the schedule for the day.
SBR riders, lead by Joseph Lee, mark their racing lines on the track to
show novice riders the fastest and safest route round - one less thing
to worry about! On race days after, held after tuition sessions, experienced
racers found these lines to be very useful. Though there will always be
adebate about best turn in, apex or exit points it's always best to have
an experts opinion to hand, especially when you're doing 200km/hour!
SBR Instructors are experienced track riders. Pictured
here are Simon, Gareth and Joe - his back end competing with the Gixxxer's.
Tyre pressures, brakes and a tight sump plug!
tutors take small groups of riders out at slow speeds to help new
riders familiarise themselves with track riding and the track.
