The YPM Taster weekend is designed to allow those that are seriously thinking about going racing to experience a full weekends racing and testing without having to worry about the expense of buying all the equipment or running a bike.
It’s a sort of try it out before you commit.
This is not an experience type package, this is real racing!
All of this is included:
- The use of one of our race prepared TZR250 club bike
- Race entry costs for 4 races
- A full days testing on the preceding Friday with on track instruction
- Full technical support from a YPM member
- Race fuel and oil
- Loan of race transponder
- Tyres – Dry and full wets
- Basic spares package
- All equipment will be transported to the circuit for you
- No damage excess (ie the cost of the weekend is fixed)
- Lot’s and lot’s of fun
Costs for the taster weekend:
The weekend will cost circa £550 depending on the circuit chosen
This will get you the ride on the bike for the test day which should amount to nearly 1.5 hours of track time, 15 minutes qualifying on the Saturday morning followed by 2 races
Sunday is a quick 2-3 lap warm up if required and then 2 more races
Also included is all fuel and oil needed for the weekend along with the transponder hire.
All you need to do is turn up with your ACU licence, 1-piece leathers, boots, lid, gloves, back protector and dog tag.
During the weekend you will be fully supported by at least 1 YPM member (more often there will be many YPMers helping you out when they can).
Please note that the cost of the Taster weekend does not include the cost of joining a club, the ACU CTC course or the cost of the ACU licence. If you don’t have an ACU licence we can help you get one. You will need to join an ACU Motorcycle Racing Club (eg BMCRC – Bemsee). Depending on your age and any previous racing experience you will need to pass the ACU CTC licence course, which involves some class work and track time. See the BMCRC website for details. Trackday organisations are also offering ACU Licence courses.
