SCOTLAND’S top motorcycle racing authority has announced a new series of rider development sessions throughout 2018 in a bid to help its racers progress.
Aimed at Clubman licence holders of all ages, the on-track events will target both solo pilots and sidecar teams seeking advice on their way up the licensing ladder.
Sessions will be predominantly made up of time on circuit, but experienced riders whom the SACU plans to invite will be on hand to offer coaching should the need or request arise.
The first Rider Development Session will be at East Fortune on Saturday, March 24 from 1pm to 4pm, while Knockhill will host the remaining three sessions for the year on Tuesdays – May 22, July 24 and August 28 – from 5-m to 8pm.
While the SACU will provide a majority of the funding to make this programme possible, it will still be necessary for riders to make a small contribution of £30 toward marshal, medical and operational costs.
Participants are urged to arrive at least one hour early for a briefing where they will be reminded that the emphasis is on coaching and misbehaviour or race sessions will be tolerated.
Although Clubman riders are the SACU Road Race Committee’s main target, National riders are urged to enquire if they feel they may benefit from such sessions.
Interested parties can contact Stella Clusker at the SACU Office on 01506 858 354 to reserve a place.
