On a motoDNA track coaching day, riders are grouped into separate levels based on experience and ability. This ensures safe closing speeds and you will feel more comfortable with riders of similar experience.
Students can pick a group when booking. It’s always best to start in an easier group and work your way up. We can move you into different groups during the day as required.
During the day you will enjoy comprehensive off track briefing sessions from your allocated coach in between 15 – 20 minute track sessions held every hour.
There’s heaps of riding throughout the day so bring plenty of fuel, fruit, drinks and ideally trailer your bike to the track.
motoDNA encourages rookie students to attend one of our workshops before attending a track event. You will learn about all the common mistakes which make your transition to the track seamless and more enjoyable. However, these topics are also briefly covered in the riders briefing.
This group is aimed at ROAD RIDERS and TRACK DAY ROOKIES and addresses the most common novice issues making your transition to the track seamless and safe. The goal is to give you a better understanding of bike and rider limits, essential to survival on the road. Topics include racetrack etiquette, basic bike setup, vision, target fixation and more. We guarantee you will finish the day with a huge smile on your face. A lot of road riders enjoy the track experience so much they end up buying a track day bike or go racing.
The intermediate course is aimed at riders who have completed a few track days and focuses on building your skills, knowledge and confidence to the next level. Topics include body position, line selection, cornering, reference points, braking and more.
The advanced course is aimed at the more experienced track day rider or racer and takes you to the next level of riding skill and motorcycle setup knowledge. Topics include suspension, geometry, advanced cornering, electronics and more.
The Masterclass course, for level 2 and above, is the ultimate high performance motorcycle education program around. You will be allocated one of our expert coaches, who are all International road racers and include 500GP legend Kevin Magee, 500GP rider Mark Willis, World Super-stock rider Bryan Staring and former International Mark McVeigh. This unique coaching experience will advance your riding skills exponentially by combining motoDNAs holistic program and ultra experienced star coaches. We work on your individual weaknesses which may include psychology, bio mechanics, advanced suspension, geometry, ergonomics and more.
