Advanced Rider Technique launches in the UK

Silverstone's Copse Runway on Wednesday 25th July
A brand new motorcycle training programme, that was originally developed for the US military, is being launched in the UK on 25th July. Designed to help overcome the common control errors that affect novice and experienced motorcyclists alike, ART (Advanced Rider Technique) concentrates on core techniques and leads to big improvements in a short time scale.
Developed by 'cornering guru' Keith Code, who founded the world-famous California Superbike School in 1980, ART is based on a training programme that Keith devised for the United States Marine Corps to reduce serious motorcycle accidents among off-duty soldiers.
Taking half a day to complete, students can choose between morning or afternoon sessions. ART is delivered by qualified California Superbike School staff, all of whom are highly trained in observation and communication. Utilising a short course laid out on private land, ART students experience high repetition of procedures that allows them to focus on technique. Each morning or afternoon starts with a briefing followed by three track sessions, focusing on throttle control, corner entry speed and proper coordination of the throttle versus leaning.
"Art isn't a track day and you're never pushed to go faster than you feel comfortable. ART is about understanding and making use of a few fundamental techniques that will keep you safe and in control on the road" says ART Director Anito Lauriello.
ART runs in the UK for the first time at Silverstone's Copse Runway on Wednesday 25th July and costs £99. For more information or to book visit http://www.art-skills.co.uk/ART.php.
