Sundays meeting at Carrville–CANCELLED

Cancel-BWMBCSorry......


We've took a early decision in view of the awful forecast for tomorrow to cancel the meeting at Carrville in the morning and to reschedule it for the following Sunday - the 17th August.

Hope this gives you a bit more time to make alternative arrangements for tomorrow and then to keep your fingers crossed for a better forecast for next Sunday :-)

Please look properly at Junctions

IAM Rider Skills Days - Croft Circuit

CroftWednesday 27th August 2014
Set in beautiful countryside a few miles south of Darlington this 2.1 mile track has some challenging corners and extensive straights which give a really broad
spectrum of experiences to help riders develop their skills.
This full day event offers sessions of circuit riding under the guidance of an experienced IAM instructor interspersed with theoretical input to help you enhance your riding. The instructor will develop your observations and your techniques of bike control so that you are able to make rapid and smooth laps of the circuit. You will
work on positioning, braking, gear choice and acceleration technique. Repeated laps of the same circuit allow you to experiment with different variations of approach, and demonstrate how critical the right choice is to making the ride feel absolutely right. It doesn’t have to be done at fearsome speeds. You can enjoy the Skills Day at your own pace and your instructor will work with you in whatever way suits you best. After booking, we shall ask to you for details of your previous experience so that we can
ensure you get instruction at a level most beneficial to you. The circuit environment allows you to experience the subtleties of your bikes handling. You are in a controlled space. The usual hazards associated with the public roads are entirely absent. The setting for Skills Day training is unique.
The experience is invaluable!

Croft is ideal for us to help you to learn so much more about your bike and yourself.
No matter what they have been riding, IAM members have enjoyed this unique experience and been surprised by what they have learnt in the just a few hours.
You should be next!
Croft has all the facilities you could ask for!
Refreshments are available throughout the day, with a free coffee or tea on arrival once you have signed in.
An IAM photographer will be present and a full set of shots is sent to every rider after the event
Guests are welcome and can enjoy the freedom of the pit lane and watch the action from the pit lane wall. Make a real day out of it!

All this for an exceptionally low cost!
IAM Rider Skills Day only £149
Booking opens on Tuesday, 24th June 2014 at 10 am
