    A new and exciting partnership between Mercury Motorcycle Training and Castle Combe Circuit has been formed to offer motorcycle rider development opportunities.

    The first offering is a Motorcycle Skills School Day. If you have limited or no experience of riding on track or you have recently passed your full motorcycle test and you wish to enhance your skills then this day is for you.

    Participants will experience the capabilities of their machines as well as themselves in a safe, controlled and traffic free environment on the circuit. It will merge the skills learned on the circuit with the skills needed to be a safer and more competent rider.
    The day will begin with registration, noise testing and a full mandatory safety brief.

    The remainder of the day will be circuit sessions preceded by a short theory lesson delivered by a qualified Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) or track instructor. Your time on circuit will be used to put the theory into practice under the watchful eye of your instructor. Topics covered in the theory sessions will include:


    • Vision – “Look where you are going – and a little more!”
    • Machine dynamics – “Some simple principles of physics”
    • Braking – “How hard can you really brake?”
    • Steering – “Your hands follow your eyes”
    • Throttle control – “Power is in the hand of the beholder!”
    • Body position/anchoring – “We sit “in” our machines not “on” them – discuss!”


    Cost: £150

    We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”

    That has been the case with many reports I have read over the years

    The biggest offenders as standard were R6 and GSX-R600s from around 2006-2008... basically the models that had the really diddy silencers that were neatly tucked in for tidy aesthetics but sadly didn’t silence the bikes sufficiently for Combe’s noise nazis. Those two models were the biggest culprits, there may have been others since but I’m not aware of them. It might be worth calling the circuit, they may have a list of problem models.
