unlearning what we’ve learnt over the years as a street rider and getting a better understanding with the
bike and the track. This also include a detail track walk to understand the dynamics of a race track.

session would include advance learning of corners and related topics followed by session on vision,
Counter steering, quick turn are the next session, last session would be basics of body positioning and
its aspects. As usual all theory classes will be followed by corresponding drills on track. Instructors &
Demonstrators will be there to guide throughout the Classroom and track sessions

legally and safely) , techniques of passing using non conventional racing lines, late braking techniques
are some of the key points taught in level 3, This level also includes race start procedure and race start
techniques, although this is an optional session for riders.
Not for the average Tom, you’ve have to be a class apart, another breed and in some cases reborn
again, only then will you stand a chance to get a piece of the action. Instructors will personally hand pick
the students for the class and you should also have the course completion certificate from Apex Racing
