ART in Autumn
30 Aug 12
Advanced Rider Technique (ART) at Silverstone on Friday 12th October
Following its successful UK launch in July, there will be another opportunity for British motorcyclists to hone their skills at an Advanced Rider Technique (ART) course on Friday 12th October.
ART is based on a training programme devised by 'cornering guru' Keith Code for the United States Marine Corps. Designed to help overcome the common control errors that affect novice and experienced motorcyclists alike, ART was commissioned to help reduce serious motorcycle accidents among off-duty military personnel.
Delivered by qualified California Superbike School staff, ART takes half a day to complete, so students can choose between morning or afternoon sessions. Most of the time is spent riding around a short course, laid out on private land, where students focus on throttle control, corner entry speed and proper coordination of the throttle versus leaning.
"Definitely worth the trip from Cardiff for a fun and well presented programme" commented Ros Williams, who attended the July course. "Loved the teaching technique of breaking everything down into simple components and gradually building up. Enjoyed my ride home winding through the Forest of Dean, trying out my new skills!"
ART runs at Silverstone's Copse Runway on Friday 12th October and costs £99. For more information or to book visit www.art-skills.co.uk.
