Racing course, level I

Experience the emotion of the track!
"A true educational experience that provides the technical foundations for quick and safe riding on track." A. Valia, Master racing course director

The level I Track Course is the best way to approach the track, both for those with no experience, who can take their first steps in a safe, controlled and totally unaggressive environment, and those who have already participated in track days but want to hone their skills under the guidance of professional instructors.

For the 2014 edition DRE has a new look, with a course format that aims to fully prepare pupils ahead of their track experience. The course is structured so as to offer the client fundamental notions for a correct approach to riding.

The course takes place over 2 days, the afternoon of day one is dedicated to a theoretical briefing that focuses on topics such as: riding position, correct line of vision, braking, steering and acceleration. These subjects will then be put into practice with specific exercises that will take place in the paddock.  The instructors will then be able to create homogeneous groups based on the abilities shown by the participants. The day will end with an aperitivo and you will also have the chance to get to know your instructor at the same time.

The following morning, before the dedicated track sessions get underway, pupils will meet with technical director Dario Marchetti for a talk about the topics covered as well as any doubts or clarifications.

The pupils will at this point start their on-track training, a specialist instructor will give advice before each session, a total of 5 sessions are planned, and after each session there will be another briefing to discuss the experience, comment on the video made by the instructor during the session, ask questions and receive answers.  Thanks to the constant feedback, you will greatly improve your on-track riding abilities and your sensation of safety on the bike, finding your style and your lines, particularly when you go back to road riding after the track experience.

The participants (up to a maximum of 50) will be divided into groups of 5, each of which will be guided by an expert instructor. No previous track experience is required to participate in this course but solid motorcycling skills are necessary.

The bike used for this course is the 899 Panigale: a great opportunity for all pupils to test a unique bike in its natural environment, the racetrack; a bike that can be exploited in every situation thanks to its Riding Modes and multiple configurations.

The required clothing consists of a leather suit, a back protector, full-face helmet, gloves and boots. For those who do not have any, technical clothing can be hired at the time of purchasing the course (please read the 'clothing' section for details regarding the technical garments to be worn).

Participation in the level one Track Course is open only and exclusively to those in possession of Riding licence (type A for Italy or equivalent).
