Anyone done the Ron Haslam race school???

My wife has suggested it for me as a birthday present, but when I've looked at the website, they've got three categories....

I'm thinking the "get on track" is probably the right level for me, but worried its full of kids. The next step up is the Premier category, but I'm concerned that as I haven't been on a bike since passing my test nearly 3 years ago, this might be pushing it for me.

Anyone offer any advice/comments on their experiences?

you have been on a bike in three years ???? you poor thing...... how are you coping ? I bet you drink alot and sit in a corner rocking and talking to your self a lot ? 

I would get some riding in first other wise it's going to take half the day just to get the feel of riding back again!

Not done the Haslam school but have heard you get very little track time, i have done a load of track days, i would suggest doing a normal track day first, Silverstone GP Arena curcuit, its wide open and long, book in the novice and get the instructors out with you, a lot cheaper and you will get 7 20 min sessions

enjoy

Go for the basic on track on a CBR600RR, you'll be fine, you'll get paired up with someone of your ability and you don't have to try and set any lap records.

i got 3 20 minute sessions i think. . . . .lot dearer than a track day but you get to use their bikes, and leathers etc if you want. Instructors seem top notch....i was lucky, went out with just me and the instructor (no one else could keep up see?)  everyone else was in pairs. They did their best to put equal abilities and chopped and changed after the first session if you were mismatched

Thats the appeal of doing the Haslam trackday, I only got as far as buying a helmet & boots...


Whether its right, wrong, or spelt badly with incorrect grammar - its just an opinion and its mine!

all the kit looked shit hot by the way, the bikes were.  It's not cheap, but it's a good day out, especially if you ain't got the kit

here's me

Actions speak louder than words. Has anyone on here witnessed your awesome riding? Or shall we just take your word for it?
