19th September. Thruxton £135 (ladies day)
IAM RoadSmart is holding our first lady motorcyclists circuit day at Thruxton (Hampshire). All standards of ability welcome and the day is open to both members and non-members alike. Family and friends are welcome, so please pass on the details to anyone who may be interested in participating.
The day is designed to focus on the riding styles, skills and reasons for riding that we have been specifically asked to cover by our female members. Everyone will be able to learn something new.
• Vanishing points, entry, apex and exit points, how they vary from road to circuit, why and how we use them, where we should position for view, progress and safety together with braking
• Where to brake, when and how much to brake, how it feels in an emergency and finishing on accelerator (throttle) application to set the balance of the bike for controlled smooth cornering
• Gear selection – how to decide which is the most appropriate gear for the circumstances and control
• How to use the accelerator/throttle to add stability to the bike when entering corners, blipping or constant accelerator techniques when changing down gears.
This is not a track or racing day, it is a closed road skills development opportunity.
Booking is easy, each place is £135 per person for the day. Simply call 0300 303 1134 during office hours, but be quick as there are limited spaces available.

They are an additional place to learn skills that you can put into practice whilst driving your car or riding your motorcycle on the road.
They offer a controlled environment without the hazards faced on our roads, which enables the participant to concentrate on the skills being taught.
You drive or ride your car/motorcycle as the content of the days enables you to improve your personal standards and to become aware of the handling of your car/motorcycle.
The days are for all who want to improve their personal skills whilst also having some fun. No prior experience is required - we have had classic cars, family runabouts and all manner of bikes attend our days.
