The aim of Motorsportschool Zolder is to teach the sporty motorcyclist the limits of his bike and extend them. We use the track more as a means than an objective…
How? We offer trainings at 4 different levels. In addition we also have an interesting offer of “free driving” to give the sporty motorcyclist the opportunity to practice his hobby under the safest conditions possible.
Level 1 is a course of circuit acclimatisation aimed at riders with limited or no track experience. During the entire afternoon the participants explore the track with the instructors. The instructors point out the ideal lines at low speed so that the participants quickly become acquainted with the Zolder track. Driving on the track is interspersed with a few theoretical sessions. The emphasis here is especially placed on safe track driving and this from an active as also passive point of view. These sessions also offer the opportunity to ask the instructors questions. This helps to accelerate the learning process of the participants.
Because many participants do not immediately wish/dare/are able to take the next step after level 1 up to level 2 Motorsportschool Zolder successfully set-up level 1+ in 2004. The aim of this course is to allow for a smoother transition to level 2, or free driving. The participants are served up 5 sessions of track driving. The first 3 sessions are held under supervision at a speed equivalent to the end speed of level 1. The last 2 sessions are reserved for free driving.
Level 2 is open to all participants with demonstrable track experience. They should at least have level 1+ under their belts. During level 2 and based on a manual the emphasis lies in observing, braking and steering techniques. As from 2006 video recordings of the participants are also used. The analysis of these will quickly uncover any errors made by the participants, which can then be remedied. The groups are supervised by a theory-instructor and various experienced instructors on the basis of 4 participants per instructor. The course starts off with an in-depth briefing. After this the groups go on to the track for the first of 7 track sessions. An extensive evaluation is carried out after each track session.
