To celebrate our partnership with the Ron Haslam Race School, Spada is giving away a total of 10 track day experience packages. The first two have already been given away and this is the diary of their day at the circuit.
The Spada competition was a huge success and we caught up with the two lucky winners to get them all prepped and ready for their day. Spada spent time with the guys getting some snaps and making sure that they got the best possible day.
After signing on the guys were fully kitted out in Spada clothing, including the latest Spada helmets, Predator Gloves, Curve Evo boots and the Spada Curve Evo full leather suit which is worn and trusted by Ron Haslam himself.
The winners, Colin and Roy were given early access to the pit lane and an opportunity to look around the different bikes the school has to offer.
The agenda for the day started with the guys meeting up with their instructor, getting to know him, talking about their motorcycle experience and explaining what they wanted to get out of the day.
Out on track for their first session, the rain might have dampened the circuit but certainly not their spirits. It was a slow and steady start for both guys but you could tell from their faces they were loving it!
When the first session was over the guys headed back to the garages where they gained one on one instruction using static bikes. This is the real learning point for the day where the instructor gave feedback based on their riding style, offered improvement suggestions and answered any questions they had in order to improve confidence and lap times.
Winner, Colin – “I felt more confident during every session and didn’t want it to end, Absolutely brilliant, I loved every second!”
Back out again for the second session, the winners were even more confident, using their newly learned skills to improve their performances,
Winner, Roy – “Definitely coming away a better rider. Tuition was fantastic and made a huge difference.”
Just before heading out for the third and final session of the day, everyone attended an advanced group briefing session where there is yet again opportunity to ask questions and gain even more knowledge about how to ride on track effectively. When all was said and done and the day was over, our Spada winners were presented with their certificates for completing the day and were given their gradings from the instructor, ranking them on their performance.
Both Colin and Roy were a little speechless to say the least when they got to meet Ron Haslam and managed to squeeze in time for a few autographs and of course a few selfies.
