Re: Track/Race Schools

I am a Cornerspeed grad. I took Aaron Stevenson's school out of VIR. You should look around and see what schools are available. May not need to go all the way to Vegas.

Not that you can go wrong with Keith Code. I haven't taken his school, but I have met him and converse with he and his son on the R1-Forum. Excellent training, and it's very interesting to see much of what he discusses and teaches being instituted in other instructors school material.

If you are going to do track days, you must hit a road race school. Your time on the track will be worth so much more.

Lvl I was a blast, and I talk to Aaron regularly about Cornerspin. I will probably race my R6 a couple of CCS events next year, and then take Cornerspin and Lvl II. Then hopefully race a full season.

Re: Track/Race Schools

Cornerspeed is the one that I want to do. I agree with Dan on the track day comment. I lived fairly close to VIR and went almost every track day NESBA had for a year and could have benefited from a class early on.

Has anybody actually done cornerspeed and can offer any thoughts/experience?

What did you want to know about Cornerspeed? I said I was a graduate of Lvl I.

It's an awesome school. Your day will start at tech, and from their you will put your bike at the classroom (no pits). You will have about 30 minutes of classroom time, and then take to the track to practice the excercises and drills. After that you will debrief with the control riders. The sessions include a no brakes drill, a one on one session later in the day, and a mock race. The mock race is optional. They have to teach the start of a race in order to be accredited. You still graduate if you do not run the mock race, but if you chose to run it and crash, you will not get a diploma.

A very awesome school with an almost overwhelming amount of control rider presence. And I mean that in the most positive way. I overcooked the entry to a corner in the no brakes drill and had to brake hard as heck to save it. Because of that my control rider and other student (most sessions were 2/3:1 student:control rider) blew off without me. I didn't make it two turns on the track before another CR zipped in front of me and tapped his tail section to tell me to follow him.

Aaron has a top notch staff, and they race the tracks they teach at regularly, so it's an overall great experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking into road racing.
