There is no prerequisite for taking the Intermediate School, the school is open to all Intermediate level riders. An intermediate level rider is someone who consistently rides in the intermediate group (also known as B group) and has a fair amount of track experience. Students will ride in the Intermediate/B group with other Intermediate level riders. NOTE: The Intermediate School is not for beginner level riders!

The Intermediate Rider School starts at 8am, one hour before the first riders enter the race track. During that first hour Chandler will drive you around the track in a support vehicle, giving you information and pointing out key spots to look for around the track; brake markers, turning points, and apexes. After the drive around the track you will attend a mandatory riders meeting where we will spend some time going over track safety, flags, and giving you more information about what to expect during your day.
Your first session on the track, on your motorcycle, will be at 9:20am. The first lap is a sighting lap for every rider on the track. Riders are split into small groups and lead around the track by instructors. The pace is slow and designed to help you become familiar with the track and also to look for some of the markers you learned about in the morning drive around the track. 30 minute classroom sessions will be held from 10-3, immediately following your time on track, there will be a break for lunch at 12 noon.
Classroom sessions will cover riding skills and techniques such as braking, entering and exiting a corner, an apex, and body position. Students will have time to ask questions and discuss real life scenarios. The classroom instruction will offer you the verbal information you need to progress as a rider. The track time will give you an opportunity to practice and put into play what you have learned in the classroom. By the end of the day you will be more comfortable on the race track and you will see improvements in both your riding abilities and confidence level.
