Participants will be provided with Alpinestars protective clothing and will be taught the basics of machine familiarisation and how to pull away and stop safely, before progressing to slow speed manoeuvring skills.  

The scooters are fitted with kill switches and all training takes places under the watchful eye of expert instructors. As well as a learning new skills and an awareness of other road users, all attendees will take away a Silverstone lanyard and ‘Rookie Ride’ card.
