Bennetts and California team up to offer advanced training sessions
Bennetts Insurance and California Superbike School are once again teaming up to offer Bennetts Advanced Training days for novice and experienced riders.
No matter your level of riding experience there is always something new to learn and 70% of bikers surveyed* by insurance provider Bennetts said they would take up the offer of advanced rider training.
Having done track days ourselves, we know that even just a few sessions on track vastly improves your road-riding capabilities.
With that in mind, the insurer and California Superbike School are holding five Bennetts Advanced Rider Training days across the country, in April and May.
The courses are designed to help overcome the common control errors that affect novice and experienced motorcyclists alike and have proved very popular with riders who have recently passed their test or who have returned to biking after a break.
Held in the controlled environment of a race track, obviously part of the attraction if you’ve never attended a track day before, the training covers turn entry, coordinating throttle and lean, looking into turns and throttle-through-turn, in a step-by-step method of technique orientated training. Riders then head out with the California instructors to put the theory into action.
The sessions, which can be taken in the morning or afternoon, have a maximum of three groups of 10 riders, with four sessions of approximately 15 laps each.
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 policyholders will be able to book at the discounted rate of just £75 per person via the Bennetts Rewards scheme. The price also includes a certificate, which will be handed out in the debrief.
