A day at the California Superbike School is a full one, starting at 7am and finishing at around 5pm (sometimes 6pm at certain tracks). It is intense but completed in a very relaxed, easy to learn atmosphere and you will be looked after every step of the way.
In a nutshell, the day involves:
5 x technical classroom sessions
5 x 20 minute on-track sessions
An on-track riding coach assigned to you
Student to coach ratio is 3:1 or lower
An off-track coach assigned to you (Level 4)
An off-track training drill to perform
Whichever of our four levels you are attending, everyone is geared to help. Throughout the day your assigned coach will follow you and observe each aspect of your riding. For immediate feedback, specific hand signals are given to you by your coach whilst on the track or pull off with you to give feedback. You coach will also lead you to demonstrate techniques and debrief you after every ride. All our off-track and course control personnel also know which drill you are working on and every member of staff is focused on your improvement. You will improve!
You don’t need to be an aspiring racer to be a Superbike School student – don’t let the name fool you, the Superbike School is for anyone who meets a few basic criteria and you don’t even need to have ridden on a track before.
You will need to bring:
· A willingness to learn
· Your full valid motorcycle licence or an ACU race licence
· Your riding kit: one or two piece (zip all the way round) leathers, full faced crash helmet, leather gloves, motorcycle boots (kit hire is available)
· Your bike (hire bikes are available if required)

I did level 3 again in Mondello and within 5 seconds of sitting on a parked bike the coach picked up on a small mistake I was making that when corrected made a big difference in how I got on when I went out on track. By the time we got half way through the hip flick drill everything was clicking back in to place and I noticed a massive difference in my riding and confidence on the bike.

I completed level 1 at Brands Hatch. Wow what a day! It completely changed my style of riding. I feel so much more confident and in control now. Worth every penny. Every member of the team was fantastic. I can't wait to come back for level 2.

Great day at Cadwell Park on Monday, despite the weather.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to the entire CSS team for a great course. I’m clearing my diary to be able to get over to Stowe for Tuesday 11th September for Level 2.

Another fantastic day at CSS and you guys never fail to impress and the standard of organisation, classes, instruction and the instructors are first class. Please pass my thanks again to Badger for helping me improve my riding.

CSS has been one of the most exciting and enlightening things I have ever done.
The difference in my knowledge and riding is incredible. So much fun.
The feeling of putting in to practice what you have been taught, and then getting it right, is one of the best feelings ever.

Every member of the team made everyone feel welcome and relaxed, and the atmosphere among all of the students was lively and friendly.
I learnt a lot about what I was doing wrong with my riding and how to correct it which changed the way I rode. Big thanks to my instructor Duncan for spotting where I was going wrong and fixing it, Level 2 next.
Mat - Student
The most professional, talented group of people doing a job they are very clearly 100% committed to, and passionate about!
I’ve done Level 1 & 2 and will be back for more!
I never thought learning could be so much fun - thank you CSS!
