Rider Performance

Rider Performance courses

The Rider Performance course was established by Somerset Road Safety and offers collision avoidance skills training at Castle Combe racetrack. These innovative courses can be booked directly with the circuit at Castle Combe: Rider Performance

The Rider Performance course covers:

  • Machine Handling on the track
  • Observation
  • Planning
  • Braking and Avoidance Skills on the Track
  • Vehicle Maintenance
  • Smart Riding

These days are designed to involve riding skills training and theory and offer a different approach to rider development, aimed at reducing the number of motorcyclists involved in collisions. Novice, experienced and born again bikers will benefit. We will use an expert team of instructors who will guide you through the various workshops which will include positioning, observation, causes of collision, attitude, cornering, braking, overtaking, motorcycle maintenance and set up, as well as general lapping sessions of the circuit. The days are open to riders of any type of machine and cost £99 for the day.
